I thought that I was going to have a guest post for you today, so I honestly freed my mind from creating any type of blog post at all (since Saturdays are going to be my free for all blog post days.) However, the guest post was not ready in time for me to post it. So, instead I decided to take the advise that was given to me from my blog challenge group that I’m a part of. They suggested answering a list of questions about myself, and leave you as my readers with your own set of questions to answer in response. So here it goes:
- What was the happiest moment of your life? The saddest? The happiest moment in my life is so hard to pin point after all I have a wonderful husband and three (four really) amazing kids. The saddest moment of my life is also hard to pin point as well because I have gone through so much in my life. However, to attempt to answer these questions… I’ll pick the two days that shaped my life completely. The saddest day of my life was February 8th, 2006, when I went through the most life changing car accident of my life. I honestly did NOT seeing me living through it. When that happened, I realized I never got to live my number one dream which was to be with Del the rest of my life; instead I had spent most of life daydreaming/dreaming of him coming to get me and sweeping me off my feet and never letting me go. The happiest day of my life was when I married my husband on May 21, 2008!!!
- Who was the most important person in your life? Can you tell me about him or her? I just answered that question I’m sure. My husband is the most important person in my life. He honestly is full of fire, but that’s one of the many things I love about him. He can light a flame within me just by being around me. He has always been my rock and has stood by me through thick and thin. I’ve never been made to doubt that he loves me. He knows how and when to take control without making me feel like a child. He is my biggest encourager in life. There is so much I could say about this man, we’d be here all day. I love him with every ounce of my being and praise God daily for him being my husband.
- Who has been the biggest influence on your life? What lessons did that person teach you? I’d have to say my adopted mother has been the biggest influence in my life. She has always been loving and kind. She also has made a great success of her life. She didn’t settle for less than what she deserved at all. She’s taught me many things. Namely, to never give up on what I choose to do with my life.
- Who has been the kindest to you in your life? There’s NO WAY I could say who has been the kindest to me in my life. I’ve had so many people be kind to me throughout my life that I’d NEVER be able to pin point one person. I’ve showered with lots of wonderful people in my life.
- It’s been said that after they pass away, the most important people in our lives “live within us.” Is there anyone from your past that lives within you? I feel like my mom “lives within me” far more now that she has passed away than she ever did when she was alive. It’s almost like now that she’s gone she’s finally able to see the big picture that I couldn’t tell her when she was alive. Due to that she’s able to close that gap that was always between us. There are some things that are just overly hard to express in person or say in person. There are so many times that I wish my heart could do the talking for me so that people could understand me more and realize that sometimes the difficulties in “our” relationships have more to do with me than how I feel/think about them.
- What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life? Don’t ever put off to tomorrow what you can do today. Live each day to the fullest and love to the max with the time your given.
- What is your earliest memory? I’ve blocked out so much of my childhood because I had more bad than positive memories in it. However, I remember the good life I had when my mom was married to my first step-father. I remember doing gymnastics on my swing set instead of swinging on it. I remember being able to do that somewhere else too and LOVING it. I also remember climbing the apple trees. I remember having my own little classroom thanks to my first step-father to teach my stuffed animals. I also remember all the fun times there!! I lived with him from age 2-9.
- Are there any words of wisdom you’d like to pass along to me? Well, I pretty much said them already. However, I also recommend you check out this blog for a whole lot more of them.
- What are you proudest of in your life? I’d have to say the proudest moments in my life quite honestly were when I would take a horse that wasn’t able to be rode by other people and be able to get on that horse and be able to do anything with it in a short period of time.
- When in life have you felt most alone? I can remember literally hiding in the woods behind our house until a few minutes until my mom would walk in the door at 11:45pm just to avoid my step-father.
Here are my questions for you:
- How has your life been different than what you’d imagined?
- How would you like to be remembered?
- Do you have any regrets?
- Is there something about me that you’ve always wanted to know but have never asked?
Or you can ask any burning question you may have for me…
