A Bit About Me



Updated:  6 September 2010

Welcome to my blog!

Here are a few things about me:

For the past 45 years I have been a child of God.

For the past 26 years I have been the wife of Chief.

For the past 25 years I have been “Mom”.  (6 kids, born in:  1985, 1987, 1993, 1996, 1998, 2006 and I am mother to 10 little saints.)

For the past year+ I have been a mother-in-law who loves her daughter-in-law as her very own flesh and blood.

For the past 5 months I have been a grandma, first grandchild due May 2010!

For the past 21 years, I have tried to learn my faith and take it seriously.

For the past 19+ years, I have been a Texan.

For the past 17+ years I have been a homeschooler.

For the past 11 years I have been a knitter.

For the past 3 years I have been a small-time, personal blogger.

I don’t use my first or last name online. Security is important to us and I prefer that none of our names are ever used.   I hope you understand. There are some who call me “Knitter” on the web, others just use ‘BWYA’. Either is fine.

I am pleased that you have stopped by my little corner of cyberspace where I sometimes write about my family, what I’m thinking, what I’m doing and where I hope to be going as my family and I become what we are!

God bless you!

    Just wanted to let you know I love your blog. You have a way with words!!! Take Care!

  2. Congratulations!

    I liked very much your page. What attracted my attention in first place, was the name.

    In spanish, “be what you are” can also be translated by “I know what you are” (“Familia, se lo que eres”) as verbs saber and ser are written and pronounced the same way in that case .

    In my opinion, it makes a lot of sense, because John Paul II invited us to recognize our nature but also to teach us what families are, even if they seem to have forgoten it.

    I´m also a father of a big and happy family and would like to invite you to visit our blog:

    I am enjoying your spot here! I am also a homeschooling mom, I have 7 children and have also experienced the great loss of pre born children. We lost 1 at 13 weeks, 1 at 8 wks in 2005 and one at 9 weeks in 2007.

    Our oldest is Tony and he is going to be 20, he is in the seminary for our diocese. Our youngest is 5 and he is the sweetest gift to the family.

    I don’t knit, but I sew and quilt and do other crafts. We have the same print hanging in our dining room, the gal with the black hair who is in the center of the picture looks like our middle daughter! We loved the details, so many things to look at and the fact that all of them came knowing they would be welcomed. There is a warmth in the picture and the lighting on the faces of the kids makes me feel joyful!

    I will definately look around here and take encouragement from another faith filled Catholic mom. Keep up the good work!
