Just one, well, if I can just share just one then it would be listening to Hubby read the Christmas story while Hanna Beth was sitting in lap. She was totally "into" the moment and it was precious. I hope it is a memory she will recall when she is older.
2. If someone wrote a book about your life based on the past year, what genre would it fall under? What would the title be?
Oh, for sure it would fall under the category of "action packed." The title would merely be, "The Move and Two Miracle Grand Babies"
I'm not sure I could have stood any more excitement!
3. What made you feel patriotic this year?
Watching the news and seeing the young men and women putting their lives on the line each and every day for our freedom. It wasn't just one time, it is pretty much daily that I am reminded of how blessed I am to be an American. ~thank you Lord~
4. What experience from this past year would you like to do all over again?
I used the girls from our local Teen Challenge to help me a lot during our move. I had only heard of the program but it was such a great experience to actually meet these girls, hear their stories and to witness the Lord at work in their lives. I am amazed at how quickly addictions can take over and ruin lives and to see these girls giving their all to overcome them is so inspiring!
5. What song lyric sums up or is a reflection of your 2015?
"Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" came to my mind immediately, me oh, my, what a wonderful day, plenty of sunshine heading my way. Yes, it has indeed been a "zip-a-dee-doo-dah" kind of year.
6. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate 2015? (10=stellar) Why?
Well, an 8/9, see #2 and #5.
7. What part of the upcoming year are you most excited about?
I'm hopeful that Hubby and I will get to take a trip to see my Aunt and cousins in Virginia. Most of my Mom's family lived in Virginia and I have one Aunt left and a host of cousins that I really want to see.
My most favorite nephew (he's my only one) is
staring in Godspell in Feb. He is playing Jesus. ~yes, Jesus~ He is a sophomore at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. And, I really want to go and see him in this. I mean, Godspell was released in 1973 and I remember it well. ~yes, I really am that old~
8. Insert your own random thought here.
When we were discussing the many options available for our cabinets with our cabinet designer, one of the options was "soft close drawers." Well, it sounded good enough to me, so that's what we went with. I do not like them!!! I had regular closing drawers in our previous house and after 35 years of closing them all the way, I would just as soon continue doing so. If you do not know what a soft close drawer is, well, it's one where you give it a firm push and it will automatically close itself very slowly. I think the part that "bugs" me is that is takes it a few seconds to close and if it were a regular drawer, I could just close it very quickly. Now, I am not a drawer slammer at all, in fact, the opposite. But, when I close a drawer, I just want it closed. ~Oh, me, life's little aggravations!~
