Random Dozen…April 28

Welcome to Lid’s weekly Random Dozen meme.  It’s my weekly brain exercise.  Thanks Lid for hosting this meme for us.  I’ve met lots of new friends through it–most of whom give better answers than mine!  Want to join in?  Hop on over to http://www.2nd-cup-of-coffee.blogspot.com ,  copy and paste the questions, answer them, link up and join the fun!

1. Have you ever been so lost that you were really afraid?  Not really.  One time I convinced my oldest son to drive me to Savannah to Cracker Barrel so I could buy this frog fountain that I’d seen there.  We missed a turn or something.  We sort of got lost in a “not so good” section of town…the worst part was –it started to rain, the area was flooding, and I thought water was going to come inside my new car…Thankfully, we found our way out of there, and we stayed dry!

2. Have you ever been to an island?  We go to Tybee Island, Jeckyl Island, or St. Simon’s Island when we go to the beach….so the answer is yes!

3. Are you more of a thinker or feeler?  Can I choose both???  If not, then I will have to say  “a thinker”.  I spend a lot of time thinking…

4. Do you tend to see issues or situations in life as black and white or shades of gray?  definitely black and white.

5. If you were stuck on an island, what book would you hope to have with you (Let’s pretend the Bible is already there, so you can’t say that.)  The first thought that popped in my mind was…a phone book!  Silly me.  Really, I would want to have a journal so I could write my thoughts and experiences down–in case I didn’t make it off the island.

6. What are you most afraid of? Having to watch my husband die.

7. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones? I’d rather never be able to make new ones.  I treasure my old memories…especially of meeting and marrying my hubby, then having and raising our children.

8. Pretend I’m looking at a scrapbook page about you. There are three spaces for you to drop in individual pictures. What are those pictures of, and why did you select them?  My wedding day, a picture with my first baby, then a picture with my first grandchild, because those are very important milestones in my life…each represents a new chapter of my life.

9. If you were re-doing your wedding, what would you do differently? (If you’re single, tell me one thing you would do if you were planning a wedding OR huge party.)  I would wear a veil or some flowers in my hair, and I would have the wedding reception at my husband’s parents’ house.

10. Tell me one thing you know/believe about forgiveness. Forgiveness…It’s a very hard thing for me to give…I tend to hold a grudge for a long time–but I am working on that!

11. You’re waiting in a doctor’s office. What is your favorite way to pass that time? I always take along a book…my doctor is so slow, I can read half of it while I am there…

12. If there were a clone of you in a parallel universe what is one way you hope she/he would be the same as you and one way you hope she/he would be better?   Same…compassionate and loyal   Different…healthier and more forgiving

Here are those 3 pics depicting some of the chapters of my life…

  2. I think all doctor’s are slow 🙂 Love the 3 pictures!! And you can give me the $20 LOL

  3. I enjoyed your answers today…love your pictures!

    The memories question was really hard…I went with keeping the old but I didn’t see it as living in the past.

    Have a great day!

  4. I think most weddings were nightmares. I know mine was. But we got through them didn’t we.
    I love the pictures.
    Please yes enter me into the drawing.

  5. I like your pictures. The birth of our children are really very life changing.
    Nr. 6 is a big fear of mine as well!
