1. What would be your perfect weekend?
my perfect weekend would be a long one!!! john and i would be packed and ready to head to st. louis on wednesday after work. we would leave henderson spending the night in st. louis and leave on the 6:30 am non-stop flight to cancun, mx. upon landing we would taxi 45 miles south to puerto aventura, be welcomed to the palace with native flowers and two flutes of ice-cold champagne.
then, we would spend the next 4 days basking in the sun, sipping beach drinks, eating three amazing meals a day, and being entertained and pampered by the natives...
finally, upon arriving home, we would be renewed, rested, and ready to be at home with a daughter and a puppy-dogger who would both be elated to have us home:)
2. If you could go back in time is there anything that you would change about your past?
i would love to go back into my past and relive events savoring every moment... MORE!!! but, knowing what i do now, i know that if i were to change even one small thing i might not end up where i am. and, i would NEVER want to change where i am. it took the life i lived (i believe EVERY single aspect of it) for me to find my way to God. finding HIM was/is the most important thing i ever did/will do.
so, i will say i wouldn't change a thing!!!
3. What are the best and worst things about your town?
the best and worst part of living in my town is basically the same thing... it is small. the best part about it being small is that everyone knows most everyone (or there is at least a connection). for the most part, EVERYone smiles, greets, opens doors, is eager to help in times of trouble, etc... on the flip side,however, EVERYone knows EVERYone else's business.
there is very little privacy in a small town!!!
4. If you won the lottery what would be the first five things you would do/buy?
i don't buy lottery tickets often. i bought one several years ago (this is kind of funny, now); after bringing it home, i grew scared that i would win and that winning would modify my lifestyle in an undesirable way.. ha, i was so thrilled when i didn't have any matching numbers i nearly did a happy dance!!!
now, theoretically, if i were to win the lottery, i'd like to give my family the money they need to pay off their debts while also helping others i know (in the same way), put some money in the bank (several banks so as to keep it secure), and give the rest to different charities (especially those dealing with children and spreading the WORD OF GOD).
i STILL do not want my life to change... as i really do like to keep my garden small:)
5. What is your favorite childhood memory?
oddly, i don't know if i really have a favorite childhood memory unless it was the day i was standing in the middle of my grandmommie's living room and my aunts, uncle, and cousin were all telling me to come to the one i loved the most. (i was only about 3 and was the only small child of 7 brothers and sisters; my cousin was 12 years older than i and the same age as my youngest aunt.) i twirled and twirled around in circles, hearing the voices, respectively, try to lure me, and falling to the floor dizzy, giggling, and feeling nothing but LOVE:)
i miss drinking sweet coffee milk and giggling with my grandmommie on late weekend nights...
and the feel of my mamaw soft finger tips rubbing my back and sleeping with her under her soft, april fresh sheets.
can you feel the love???
love and God's blessings,
