One hundred posts. Hard for me to believe that I've actually put myself out there that many times. You guys have been so wonderful to me. So, to pay you back I am going to make you endure yet another question and answer post. I know, who would have thought it would have taken this long to answer them all. And just to break it to you, this is not the last of them. I am excited to make my donation to the Mossy Foot Project on my blogaversary, so if you haven't yet posted a question on the give away post, please do so. Okay, on with the questions...
I know this last year has been very stressful for you. But what was your favorite thing that happened during that time?
This is easy. By far my favorite thing that happened is how God used this laptop to do great things in my life. Both through the blogging world and allowing me to facilitate a Christian forum. We are in the process of doing our third Bible study together. Never would I have imagined that women from all over the country could get together on the computer and form life long friendships. That has happened through the blogosphere and the forum. I have loved every minute of it. One of the many reasons that I am grateful that God allowed my illness in June 2007.
My question is...are you going through menopause yet? Any symptoms? Hot flashes, night sweats, all that other fun stuff. C'mon, join us other 40 somethings and fess up. I'm not really dying to know this, just thought I'd throw you for a loop. You're getting some deep questions.
Is she funny or what? I was grateful for another "non deep" question. Even though you really don't want to know I am going to answer anyway. In 2005 I had to have a hysterectomy because of what they thought could possibly be cancer. Thank God it proved to be benign. However, they left my ovaries (aren't you so glad to know all this) SO...someday I will get to enjoy all the joys of menopause, but not yet!!
What makes you the happiest, what makes you the saddest.
Tough question for me to answer. There are two things that make me really happy. One being when someone who has been in bondage to satan's lies finds freedom. When they realize they are not alone and it's okay to share their "junk". Oh I love to watch that happen. The other thing would be just dying laughing with my kids. We are all super funny (and super modest). Saddest...has to be seeing my kids sad. When they cry, have broken hearts, it feels like mine is being torn right out along with theirs. I also cannot stand to see the less fortunate passed over.
What's your quiet time routine like, do you have a cup of coffee, or tea, or do you just snuggle down with your Bible and a blanket?
Easy... I have NO routine. I do not have "quiet time" any more. That is something that I used to do on a daily basis. But not any more. Definitely still spend time with God throughout the day, but there's no routine to it.
So...now a question...what is your favorite "relaxing" activity?
Hmmm...I am pretty good at relaxing. I've got that down to a science. Love a good book, love a hot bath, love being with friends and laughing and no, not at the same time.
What is your favorite childhood memory, and what is your favorite memory of your children's lives so far?
This really has me thinking because I do not have an answer for either part of it. That bothers me. This is something I am going to work on. Thanks for asking it because it is going to cause me to reflect.
What are 10 random favorite things? (No people included--they are people, not things!!!)
Lila (my laptop)
DQ Blizzards with Heath and Butterfinger, no chocolate syrup
My mom's Bible
A clean home
1. Live, prime-time, televised concert. You were the honored guest. Had an on-stage seat, so no texting, only singing and toe-tapping. Who would you choose? Wait, you then have dinner with them, just a cozy, little affair. (Not really an affair, just...you know what I mean.) Barry Manilow or Liberace?
2. Front teeth that come down to your chin but the best personality ever - or - to be a cute, talented, little thing but always feel like you are about to fall? Wait, what am I thinking?
Chin teeth or the cutest girl in the county but an odor that makes everyone gag in your wake? (can't file your teeth and no perfume covers the odor.) What would you rather have?
Okay, I have to tell you. This came from one of my IRL (in real life) friends. And I had to post it because she wants everyone to know that she is the funniest person on earth. At least she thinks so. I am sure she spent hours and hours working on this so that you all would burst out laughing! Here's the deal...I cannot stand Barry Manilow (she loves him, nuff said) The next question is asked because my best friend and I (who died 4 years ago) used to sit around and ask "would you rather" questions for hours!!!! So given the above options, I guess I would have to pick chin teeth and I would grow my chin beard really long to cover them!!
That's all for now folks. Yes, there are a few questions left and I've saved them to do them all together on purpose. Thanks for hanging with me through my 100 posts, no matter when you joined in on my journey. Life is going pretty well right now, I am loving it. Little bit more healing every day physically. Hallelujah it's fun doing chores!!
Until next time...
