Kind of a Tag

I saw this at Theresa's and thought I would try it.

Here are the rules:
*Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
*Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
*Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
*Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
I am not tagging anyone, but feel free to try this.

1) I can barely get through singing the national anthem, before I get choked up. Makes me very emotional.

2) I have a huge scar on my left calf. When I was a girl, I had a small TV that had the old antenna. The tip was broken of so it was jagged. My brother Pete was always scaring me, and one evening he climbed up on the porch and knocked on my bedroom window. I was laying on the bed watching TV. I jumped and the TV fell and then I scraped my leg on the antenna. I did not know I was cut for a few minutes. Nope I did not have a tetanus shot, and I seem somewhat fine?@?!

3) I play mind games when I drive. Not crazy mind games, but challenges to keep my mind thinking. When I lived in Nevada everything was a long drive so I began this then. I practice saying the books of the Bible in order, the presidents, the states, countries in the world, and the like. I have done this for nearly 20 years and it has been very creative for me.

4) I have swam in the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Erie!

5) I took the letters from my sisters names, my name and my mothers name to create my daughter's name. Sadly you will only know her as Fourth!! But I was so shocked to actually have a girl. I had been told that she was a boy. Well what a delight it has been to have a girl!

6)I absolutely, wholeheartedly love being a mom. There is nothing else in the world(job) wise that I would have ever picked. I know in today's world Mom's are in the workforce and need an identity, but I love that I have stayed home and given my kids...me!

7) I am still head over heels in love with my husband. He is such a kind, charming, silly, sweet, loving, honorable, dedicated man, who loves the Saviour. What more could a woman want? Yes, he does take my breath away when I see him coming home from work. Yes, he is the first person I want to talk to in the morning and yes he is the last person I wish to speak to before I go to bed! Thanks Bill for the best years of my life!! I love you:)

A Note From Theresa said...

I think that is so neat how you named your Daughter. And I too was very surprised when I had a girl after 3 boys. :)

I loved learning those facts about you. I, too was very surprised to have a daughter given by God directly to me by adoption. Yes, it was very different. One I will always be thankful for.Talking about your husaband could have been talking about mine, I feel the same way. connie from Texas
