What is the perfect pizza?

To make it perfect for me, it would need to have a thick crust. I love bread and pizza dough is no exception. I would like it to be stuffed with cheese, even though cheese hates me. Toppings: pepperoni, Canadian bacon, *real* bacon, bell peppers, onions, garlic, and spinach. I wouldn’t be opposed to a few zillion shrimp hopping on there either.

What is your favorite time of day?

I think that I must be part vampire, because I prefer the middle of the night. I have always been more productive during the night. The world just seems more peaceful at night. Besides, it is a little bit cooler out there at night than it is during the day. Our heat index is 104 degree Fahrenheit right now (3pm).

Show us two of your favorite photographs. The photos can be from anytime in your life span. Explain why they are your favorite.

There’s going to be some double up here, because one of these photos is also David’s favorite photo.

The first one was taken about a month or two before our wedding. We had gone to Atlanta, Georgia, to the Perimeter Mall with David’s parents to get some last minute things for the wedding and for my trousseau. I have no clue what we were laughing about when his mama snapped this photo. Ahh to be that young and carefree again!


David & Suzanne, Atlanta, 1984

This next picture is my favorite because it represents a time in our lives when, for the most part, everything was perfect and we had so much to look forward to. Little did we know that just over a year after that photo was taken, our world would come crashing down with the death of David’s daddy. That chapter of our lives closed and a new book opened. Life had never been the same since.


David & Suzanne & Baby on Board, 1986

Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to….

I am looking forward to our children being home for visits whenever they can. Our oldest daughter is here with us now, and our youngest will be here in a couple of weeks. I don’t know when we’ll be seeing our military sons again.

I am also looking forward to a time that I can accept what “‘life after stroke” means and not be so afraid of it happening again.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for another week without a stroke in it. I am thankful for the brownies that we had Friday. I am also thankful that we are able to stay in communication with our Marine for now. That will be changing on my birthday and I don’t like that idea. I am looking forward to our oldest daughter getting good results from the cardiologist later this week.


About Suzanne Gunter McClendon

I am a South Carolina native now living on the Texas Gulf Coast. I have been married to David for just over 33 years. We have 4 surviving adult children and two children-in-law. At this point in our lives, we are adjusting to an refilling nest. I enjoy reading, writing, photography, digital art, fiber arts, and much, much more.
