Friday's Feast

Appetizer
Do you believe there is intelligent life on other planets?

I'm still trying to figure out if there's intelligent life on this planet!

Soup
What is one thing you said you'd never do, but you eventually did?

I let myself get to heavy and now I am paying for it. I have lost 18.5 pounds though!

Salad
Who is the teacher that influenced you the most in school?

Mrs. German...she was my english and spanish teacher for all four years of high school. I started off hating (well, that's a little strong) her because my very first day in high school I couldn't get my locker opened because it was jammed. I was also on crutches which made it difficult to carry books~we didn't have backpacks back in the olden days! I walked into her class right after the bell rang and she yelled at me for being late...she wouldn't even let me explain. I told my mom that night and of course my mother wrote a her a note explaining my circumstances and the next day Mrs. German apologized and she was my favorite teacher from then on. I missed a lot of school and she always made sure I didn't get behind in my studies and proved herself to be a very dedicated teacher!

Main Course
If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be and why?

I'm not trying to change the question, but I would take my dad's place, but I wouldn't want him to have to have my body for a day. My dad is bedridden because of Parkinson's and already suffers enough. I would willingly take his place if I knew he could have one day free from pain, bedsores, not being able to eat or drink, not having a catheter, being able to speak, just being able to walk!!! And I wish it could be longer than a day....but I do know when we get to Heaven he will be from from all his suffering and will have a perfect body! PTL!

Dessert
What is your favorite dish to prepare?

I love to make homemade chicken and dumplings with all the fixin's like sweet corn, baby carrots and green beans with some kinds of cobbler for dessert! Yummy!

It says so much about you that you love your wonderful Dad so much that you would love to trade bodies, to give him some relief. I knew I had met a special blog friend that first day!

I will keep you both in my prayers, and I hope God will ease some of your pain and comfort you throughout Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!

Hey, Thank you for the sweet birthday well wishes! It meant the world to me and helped to make my day so special. You have a wonderful way with words, Amy. I can't remember anyone ever leaving me such a sweet and aspiring comment!

Forever Blog Friends, Pamela
