By far, the most beautiful natural venue that I have ever seen in person has been the gorge at the Blue Ridge Parkway during the fall. It is like Heavenly Father used every color that Crayola makes and some they could never even fathom. It is just beautiful and amazing…breathtaking! And, it is over a thousand miles away and suffering from the effects of wildfires. I may never see it ablaze with those beautiful colors again in my lifetime.
How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?
I have twin brothers and a little sister, so three siblings. I am the oldest. My brothers just turned 50 years old. My sister is hard and fast behind us. Our mother had four babies between August 1965 and July 1968. I was less than three when our little sister was born. Mama said she used every clothesline in the neighborhood to dry diapers on, way back in the days of cloth diapers.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
I would be a sandal. Not a flip-flop, because I don’t do that toe thing! Sandals are comfortable and not so much like wearing shoes. I was born barefooted and prefer to be that way, unrestrained and free.
What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
The only weird things I can think of are deer and maybe rabbit. I say maybe on the rabbit because when it was served to me, my daddy said it was chicken. It was a funny looking chicken to me and I don’t remember eating it. BUT, in my childhood home, if we didn’t eat what was put before us, we got in trouble. Maybe that’s why I don’t remember whether I ate it or not. Maybe my backside told my brain to bury that memory.
Optional 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 that things are going okay for our girls and our Marine. At this point, there is nothing that I’m really looking forward to in the week coming up other than surviving it. There are a very difficult few weeks ahead for us, emotionally and physically. I’d be lying if I said I was looking forward to that. I want to help people, but sometimes it is so very hard to do and sometimes they make it harder than it has to be.
