The Thinkers Meme

Local Girl tagged me for this meme a while back. I've been kinda busy with stuff so I am just now doing it!

1. If you had to choose one vice in exclusion of all others what would it be?

It's sad, but true~I just love pillows! I had my daughter count them for me and I personally use 12! They come in all shapes and sizes and a lot of them are blue! I ache so bad by the time I get to bed that I make sure I have plenty to support my weary bones ;o) Plus I feel like a Queen!

2. If you could change one specific thing about the world what would it be?

Oh, there are so many things I would love to see changed. I would suggest a harsher penalty for child molesters. I remember a movie titled "I Know My First Name Is Steven". The kidnapper/molester had taken Steven when he was seven years old. Steven finally made it home when he was fourteen. The man only got 7 years for his crimes! Heartbreaking.

3. Name the cartoon character you identify with the most.

This is a hard question! I guess I would have to say Linus from Peanuts because as attached as he is to his blanket I am the same way by my pillows. I know, I know, enough about pillows already ;o)

4. If you could live one day in your life over again which one would it be?

The day we first met our girls and the day we met our son for the first time! I was on cloud nine both times so I would love to do it again! We have lots of pictures, but I would soak up every precious moment of my children!!!!

5. If you could go back in history and spend a day with one person who would it be?

There are so many amazing people I would love to meet, but since my father just passed away this week I would give anything to spend one more day with him so I could tell him again how much I love him, what a wonderful dad he is, and that we are going to be okay and we will see him soon!

6. What is the one thing you lost, sold or threw away that you wish you could have back?

Our Candy Apple Red Shelby! My husband sold it after I had my knees replaced so he could pay for my surgery! I'd give anything to be able to buy it for him again.

7. What is your one most important contribution to this world?

I just pray that maybe somebody has been able to see Christ in me.

8. What is your one hidden talent that nearly no one knows about?

I can smile and laugh when deep down I want to cry. Is that a talent?

9. What is your most cherished possession?

The few pictures I have of my children as babies. Since they were adopted I don't have much from their childhood except a couple pictures of each of them.

10. What one person influenced your life the most when growing up?

Both my folks have taught me so much. They worked hard, played hard and loved hard!

11. What one word describes you better than any other?

I wish that we could make the child molesters stop what they are doing. I think harsher penalties are good too, but I don't think that it changes what these people are doing. It would probably be a lot of therapy and I think people's preferences like that are rooted very deep.

I love pillows too :) I like them all around me, not as much under my head. :)

Keeping you in my thoughts Amy. :)
