My name is Sidnie Miranda. Randi to those in Alabama; Sidnie to those in Germany… I’ll explain that story later…For now, you can call me whichever you’d like.
I’m 23 years old; Wife to David and mom to Austin and Cade. I’m a Southerner, with a sweet Alabama accent. I don’t always get the laundry folded and put away. I choose, instead, to change diapers and to play with trucks and blocks. I won’t start a book unless I have the time to finish it in a day or two because I get completely consumed by the characters.
I believe in God. I pray to St. Christopher when I travel, and St. Anthony when I lose things, but no, I’m not Catholic. My momma once told me, “You can’t worry about what you don’t know about.” She’s right, you know.
I procrastinate and I like to give hugs. I’m quick to say no when someone asks a favor and I know I already have too much on my plate. I am almost always barefoot.
I spent my high school and college years constantly searching for greener grass. I quit the track/cross country team to get a job. I quit the job to manage the track team. I moved 3 hours away into a dorm and then into an apartment for the college experience. 2 years later, I moved back into my old bedroom at home.
Everybody had opinions and expectations, and I ran circles trying to figure it all out.
Then I met David, a soldier fresh out of basic training. I realized I didn’t need, nor did I want, someone else’s greener grass. I’ve survived my share of thunderstorms and maybe even a few tornados, but our boys, Austin and Cade, fill our lives with sunshine. Somewhere along the way, I realized as long as I filled my side of the fence with things I love and cherish, it’d always be green enough for me…
Please, stay awhile. Come on in, and prop your feet up. There’s always a glass of fresh sweet tea waitin’. I’ll tell you a story while we watch the grass grow….
