I love last

I've always been last since I was born last, but it wasn't a compliment or benefit in my family.

I was the one picked last for any sport because left-handed batters were a pain and playing sports for me was like asking a whale to walk on land. Not pretty.

Last to know, last to get it in math and last to look like a "woman" in high school. 

Perhaps this post doesn't sound like I love last. 
In reality, I'm rather fond of being last even though I have had plenty of firsts in my life too. It is a piece of who I am. Comfortable sometimes.  I wouldn't change my birth order or inability to hit a home run. I don't hide that higher math gives me a headache.
I love last because that is a piece of who I was made to be.

  1. I love to be last too. I'm not bent towards the scrambling to be first...there is something quite freeing to always bringing up the rear. =)

  4. Hi Dionne! And how would you know that left-handers would be like gold in high school???

    Last is really ok, as you pointed out. If your first, you are leading. Leading doesn't make for a good Christian. We are all followers!

    Have a good weekend, last-born one!
