About Me.

Oh, hi. My name’s Ambrosia. It isn’t really, but when I was eight years old my parents took me to Ponderosa and at the salad bar there was ambrosia “salad”, a vile concoction that only children and the elderly enjoy. I decided after having a spoonful that ambrosia was the best thing I’d ever eaten and the most awesome word I’d ever heard, and that when I was over 30, chronically depressed, and pathetically single, I’d use the name Ambrosia while blogging. Mostly true story.

        I’ve been MIA! Which sucks because I miss writing, and I was starting to build an audience…but I took a new job that leaves my brain mush at the end of the day. Words don’t just flow for me, it’s a process, and I have been too tired to think clearly enough to be happy with the words I’d put out. I’m extremely self critical, you can relate right?!?!

    Ambrosia, it would be great if you would write a review of your date from OKCupid. I would really like your feedback as well of how you thought the site functions. I think I sent you a link to try out the site already. I will send you another one tot he email you provided on your contact page. I know you said you don’t check it often, but please check it:)

    Oh my. Your blog title is just hysterical. I laughed and laughed OUT LOUD. Thanks for the laugh and stopping by my blog. It was very kind of you. I think the username “Ambrosia” is kinda awesome as well. Stay fabulous. Cheers!!

    I know I’ve not commented before, I was just curious to know how you’re doing. I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately.

    Would love to see you post another article.

    Hope that you are well and life has been good to you.

      Hi CHope,

      I’m sorry it’s taken me so very long to respond to your comment. I am going to post in a bit; only took me four months since my last one and more than a month since your lovely ‘hello’. I may touch on why I’ve been silent, but, I’m sad to say, I haven’t been well and life hasn’t been good to me. However, it could be worse. It can always be worse. And I’m going to try really hard to keep it sort of funny. The last few posts were MAJOR bummers, right?

      Thanks for thinking of me and checking up on me. I think of you too, and hope to someday either be able to let go and believe wholeheartedly in Jesus-God or be a nice atheist like you. This in between stuff is the pits. 🙂

      Thanks again.

        Hello Ambrosia,

        So good to hear from you. I know I said I wouldn’t post anything until after Christmas, but I had an issue that’s been gnawing at me. I was working on it as I received your reply.

        I just know that we haven’t had much of an on line blogging relationship and I didn’t want to over step my boundaries. I hope that you are well.

        This is your blog, don’t ever feel bad about crappy days with blog posts to follow. I wish blogging was more common while I was single, I would have loved to have found your blog back then! You just share your struggles as they are. I married at thirty-one and had my boys at thirty-two and thirty-five. For the most part, I was a very dedicated Christian. Though I wasn’t the most innocent young woman out there, I didn’t date much compared to some people. In fact, I didn’t so much as kiss a man from 1998 until 2004 and that was when I met and married my husband. I grew so weary about sexual purity and damn Proverbs 31! The legalism and the consistent double standards between men and women, even worse in the Church, were just too much! There is so much I would have done differently back then. As much as I travelled, I wish I had done it more. And I wouldn’t have done it so much for my family, Church or ministry, I would have done it more for me. I would have also been much more upfront and forward about who I really am. I would have looked honestly at my faith and my parents without all the mumbo jumbo “deliverance” and “inner healing” junk in the way. I would have also been more aggressive in approaching men and not such a big chicken!

        I’m sorry, I’m starting to write an article here. I just think that you are amazingly and beautifully honest. I know how people like to shut up single women and no one has the right to do that to you. You keep talking until someone listens. There is no judgement should there be more layers that you had not known about,to work through even more healing. No one is whole, usually the ones that try to shut you up the most are the most sick/wounded individuals out there. As far as the Jesus stuff is concerned, you will make the choice that is best for you when it is your time. I’m not exactly nice, it’s something I have to work through a lot of crap to hopefully get to soon.

        If I don’t hear from you again, I hope you have an amazing Christmas and a very happy new year. Surround yourself in love, even if it’s just yourself. Enjoy a long bath and a good drink sometime this weekend. Enjoy who you are.
