Ten Things You May Not Know About Me:
1. Whenever I'm in a parking lot, I always park facing out of the space, even if it means parking farther away. It's much easier than craning my neck and backing-out while praying no one is walking or driving behind me.
2. I enjoy reading obituaries online from a California town where I lived from ages 17 to 29. They're well-written, bring back wonderful memories of my years there and I sometimes recognize the deceased' names.
3. This April, I'll have lived in the Buffalo area for 20 years (!) Not counting some dreadfully long winters and 3 (or 4) terribly humid summers, I have loved living here with all my heart. I'd have hated to miss all this.
4. I used to adore watching Hallmark-like romantic movies, but now they make me gag. :)
5. I love Facebook, but grow weary of certain friends' negative posts about our government. I know those things already, everybody does. Why not spread hope and gratitude instead of more fear/distrust/hate? (You all knew this already, but I'd just come over here after reading a couple negative posts and couldn't resist.)
6. I own few clothes and tend to wear the same ones over and over. Mostly I wear black and mostly I don't even notice what other people are wearing. I'm just not a clothes (or shoes) person.
7. I truly don't mind that I'm not (and am unlikely to be) a grandmother. God has given me great happiness and contentment and keeps my heart filled with Him and busy with myriad other interests.
8. If I was offered one last meal on Death Row, I would choose spaghetti, barbecue potato chips, chocolate ice cream and orange seltzer water. (Yes, I know how pathetic that sounds.) heh.
9. When a friend sent me this vintage 1950's youtube video, (thanks, Carolyn!) I felt like it mirrored the life I've lived in Buffalo since 1993. That's how retro the inside of my head is.
10. I used to be shy, but God freed me. I used to be depressed, but God set me free. I used to be bossy and God's still working on that. :)
Oh wow! This totally made my whole week. Not just the incredible man with no arms and legs, but the things he shared with the whole world by way of Oprah's program. Woo hoo! Getting the message out there--awesome.
Thanks again, Barbara, for sharing this at Facebook--it's a perfect example of spreading hope there rather than ugliness!
