I have a young friend that, like me, is struggling with very difficult health issues. She recently put together a list of questions and answers that gave the reader a bit more personal information about herself. Since I, too, have been asked some personal questions, I borrowed her ‘question’ list and tailored it to myself. So, Kaylee…this post is dedicated to you!
I am a wonderful wife, daughter, sister, friend, listener and very compassionate
I’m very grateful to have a friend that is a professional photographer, since it’s her talent that can make our photos look nice. (Thank you, Karen!)
I know I still have much to learn
I know all people (including myself) are imperfect and I accept that.
I have been blessed beyond measure to enter numerous nations across four continents working as a Humanitarian Aid Relief Coordinator and Educator for First Responders.
I wish: I were without significant health issues and could have some pain free days.
I hate the lack of concern I see all around me for those that struggle just to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.
I miss: My Dad…he passed away far too soon.
I detest: The fear mongering I see taking place in our government.
I hear: Birds singing outside and Eric Clapton on my CD player
I smell: The Pecan pie that is baking in the oven and the fresh flowers I just put in the vase.
I crave more time with my husband… I’ve waited my whole life to meet a man like him.
I search all the political web sites and admit to being a ‘political junkie’.
I wonder: why so many people are discontent with whom they are.
I regret not meeting the man I am married to decades ago…however, having been married to an abuser for almost 25 years… has stolen time from us.
I love deeply and without reservation
I ache: When others are in pain, sad or lost a loved one tragically.
I am not happy due to the lack of necessities of so many of our own US citizens
I believe: That the Lord can work out all the details concerning me
I dance to everything…having been in competitive gymnastics for 13 years helped my coordination 🙂
I sing well, even if I am the only one of this opinion (I was once told “Rest your voice”)
I cry when the physical pain I experience gets out of control.
I fight for the issues of which I am passionate…and they are numerous
I have won at every debate I have ever been a participant… I lose nothing, as I have a place for everything.
I never give up.
I always remember the tiniest detail…which drives some folks nuts.
I confuse some people with the reason my political beliefs have taken such a drastic turn over this past decade.
I listen to what others say and value their opinion.
I can usually be found working on my writing projects or fund raising for a non-profit cause.
I am scared that I may leave something important undone due to continually working against a deadline
I need to be reassured at times, due to the level of physical pain. Pain had invaded every area of my life.
I am profoundly grateful for my husband and the love of my family
I desire to be doing far more than I am doing now. However, until the Lord intervenes…I need to learn to be content right where I’m at.
