Get to Know You Part 2... the Influence Conference

Get to Know You Part 2

I have to say I am really enjoying this "series" as there are some vibrant ladies out there that I am getting to know a little better or just meeting in the first place.  I have to admit I am a little nervous!  I mean yes my children are older and I HAVE been away from them before but this coming weekend has a lot going on.  I mean it will be the first time I won't be there for the ISSMA regional marching band competition.  This is big for me.... you see this might be our last year as Sean is undecided about band in his senior year.  I love watching him perform, the smile it brings to his face, and add to it that I won't be there for this weekend's competition (hubby is on crutches due to foot injury) well it makes it hard for me.  But I know in my heart this is what I need to do.... (so pray for me because this is really big.)  Add in the fact that I may actually end up staying down at the conference instead of driving home each night is something even bigger.  Crazy!  but I really am a homebody who truly enjoys being surrounded by her family, even if they are in a different room.  I know that this time next year our eldest will be away at Liberty University studying to be an aviation missionary (yes there have been some great changes since graduation!), our middle will be a senior contemplating his future (possibly helicopters in the Army),  our youngest will just be starting high school and my sweet hubby will be either starring retirement from active duty in the face (or within 3 years of it.)  So change is here for me... and I'm not too sure how I'm doing with it.  But the Lord is truly my strength and I am learning more and more how to lean on Him daily.

So enough of the heavy stuff... lets take a look at today's questions.

What was your favorite food when you were a child?

When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?

Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?

What is your favorite body part?

If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?

1. My favorite food as child??? Wow, that is really hard because I have always liked pretty much everything... and to be honest, childhood was a few years ago and honestly my Mom is a great cook and I LOVED all of her food.  Maybe it would have to be spaghetti with my Mom's homemade sauce because it is the one thing that I can remember asking to eat for my birthday... otherwise it would have to be my Mom's pizza.  Mom always made our pizza from scratch and as far as I was concerned there was nothing better than homemade pizza and a night of playing board games.  (they always seemed to go hand in hand!)

2. 30 minutes of free time?  Yes, I have to admit our boys of an age now that 30 minutes of free time is pretty common place.  and what do I do?  read! whether it be a blog post or one of the many books I always have checked out of the library, you will find me reading. (once the family room is complete you will find me crafting once again!!)

3. Have I ever had anything bad happen that turned out for the best?  Yes, meeting my husband and getting married.  Okay that sounds weird but you see I was in a really bad time in my life.  I was angry with God but wouldn't admit it or couldn't admit it... so I was living life my way.... and was miserable.  When I met Chris I was not following the Lord in any way, shape, or fashion.  But the Lord was working on me, bringing people into my life... one of which was Chris whom He was working on as well.  You see Chris accepted the Lord as his personal Lord and Savior within 6 months of our getting married.  It was during that time that I realized how wrong I had been and turned back to the Lord.  Do I regret the life I lived for a number of years... yes because I wasn't serving my Lord but I am so thankful for the husband I have and the man Chris has become in the Lord!

4. Favorite body part?  Eyes.. hands down!  Mine are hazel but they change from brown with a ring of dark grey with gold flecks to green depending on what I am wearing or my mood or how tired I am.  Its kinda funny looking at our family though... my husband has dark brown eyes but our boys' eyes are dark brown, blue, and green. but then if you saw the guys together you would think that they were cousins at the most or maybe friends as they have different color eyes, hair, and complexions!  I have to admit even though the nose isn't my favorite body part on others it is something that I always notice... please don't ask me why because I seriously can't tell you! :)  I just notice noses....

5.  a certain age forever?  Sorry but I just couldn't pick... I think every age has had its good and bad.  I loved being a child, a teenager, a young adult, and now middle aged (ugh, did i actually admit to being middle aged?  did you feel the earth move?  i sure did, ha ha!)  So picking just one certain age is almost impossible... but maybe when I was really young and my parents were still together and we got to spend time on my grandparents farm or on the beaches in southern california.  

So what are your answers?  Let me know... I would love to read your responses in the comments section and have the opportunity to get to know you just a little better!
