Life Is Good...I was tagged!

Becca from The Bates Motel and, mom to the gorgeous Miss Sammi, tagged me. Probably just what I needed right now,because Life is good! Circumstances and some situations in life are not always good , but life itself is!

These questions were not that easy to answer. I really had to put my thinking cap on.

1.If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?

No I do not blog as Anon. I never have.  I am glad I didn't start out blogging as Anon, because when I started blogging I was looking for support.
I found it a comfort that people new my name and who I was. I don't have anything against people who do blog anonymously, it 's there choice.  It's what ever you feel comfortable with.

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side.

There are many!!!  One that is apparent to most who know me is my need  to have the last word. Whether it be a good one or a not so good one, it's mine! I have been known to drag out discussions to a physically exhausting length, just to get the last grunt. 

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?

Now these questions are getting pretty deep. Well I see someone who had to find her voice. With the birth of Em I became an instant advocate, no longer allowed to sit silently. I also see my youth, but I see that I am living the happiest days of my life.

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?

I wish I had some interesting concoction to name here but it's, just a plain old iced tea. Actually, Lipton diet ice tea. 

5. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it? 

I think if I were to answer no to this question I wouldn't be living life, I would just be existing. Life should be full of accomplishments waiting to be accomplished. I have a list, and it's pretty long. My most heart felt one is adoption.  We would love to adopt.

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the class shy person, or always ditching school?

OK I'm flying past this one , I was a wild and reckless youth, I was always ditching! Enough said!

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what do you see?

It would be the moment I just couldn't turn a deaf ear to Jesus any more. He had been tugging at me for quite some time to come back to Him. During my teen and young adult years I put Jesus and the Church into the background, way in the back. I thought I knew better. HA! But that nagging to come back would not go away.Good thing Jesus is so persistent.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?

Surprisingly I don't have a hard time writing about myself. I want my blog to be a place where people can relate to what I'm writing about. If I'm not sharing some personal stuff I feel my blog wouldn't be what I intended it to be.

10. If you had the choice to sit and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?

This is an easy one. Give me a book and some quiet time any day of the week.  

OK, now I'm supposed to tag some unsuspecting reader. if you've already been tagged sorry, if not lets hear your answers.
