For #WomanCrushWednesday, I have decided to showcase a very good friend of mine, Angela Moriarty. She has started a Facebook page called Angela’s 9 Month Challenge. Of her page, she says, “I will be posting exercise routines, food ideas, health tips, and writing about my challenges along the way.”
If you’re wanting some more inspiration or want to join in the challenge, head on over to her page and give it a “Like.”
That is not the only reason I have chosen to showcase her this week. Angela is an all around amazing person. (Yay for unintentional alliteration!) She truly cares about other people and has done so much to be a help and blessing to many, including working with a church to feed the homeless, taking in families to help them get back on their feet, being a foster parent, sewing “blankie tags” (blankets with silky “tags” all around the edges) for children in the hospital, and so much more.
On top of all that, she has four absolutely amazing children that she has home-schooled. Prior to meeting Angela, I never wanted to have kids. I worked in the tourism industry and knew kids were snotty, messy, loud, mean, and never behaved. Meeting her kids showed me that children act the way they are taught, that kids can listen, be kind, and well-behaved if that is what they are shown. If it wasn’t for meeting her and her children, I probably never would have had Sylar.
The relationship she has with her husband is one that many women envy. These are two people who are so very much in love and it’s shown in the little things they do for each other. It’s clear when you see them together that they are two people who got it right.
Oh, I guess shouldn’t neglect to mention that the girl is hot! Her hubby is a lucky man and I’m sure he agrees. Of course he is a catch himself so they make a lovely pair.
Angela has even done some modeling. Of course you can see it in the photos, but she has gorgeous long red hair. Absolutely beautiful girl!
Angela is the person I go to with all my gardening questions! …Okay, I don’t have any gardening questions because I don’t garden, but if I DID, she would be the one I go to with questions. This girl can grow anything and loves to spend time with her plants. She is not the read-a-book-to-them kind of person, but she certainly keeps her babies happy and growing.
Of course all those things are just a portion of her that the world gets to see. I love the fun person she is when she just lets loose. We have had so much fun over the years! Karaoke, Dollywood, Splash Country, most recently Cades Cove…it’s such a blast! Lucky for me, she gets my weird sense of humor so we’re always laughing. She is also amazing for hugs and just chilling with at the end of the day.
Girlie, thank you for being such an amazing person! Thank you for getting in contact with me all those years ago and piquing my interest with what you had to say. Definitely a life-changer and though things took some weird turns, I wouldn’t trade it for the world and am so happy to have you in my life!
