The A-Z's of me...... A- advocate for: the physically and/or mentally handicapped/ill. I've worked with people of all ages, male and female, through mostly volunteer work. I'm drawn to these people and/or Heavenly Father places them in my life for some greater purpose. Sorry- don't mean to start of this list on a totally intellectual note- I'll loosen up in a second :) B- best feature: my hands, I was once told I could model my hands, but I'm sure that now they are too dry, wrinkled etc. C- Could do without: People who judge harshly others that are different from themselves D- Dreams and Desires: To make a difference in the world, to be loved, and accomplish all that I'm supposed to do. E- Essential items: I'm a milk chocolate fan but I can eat dark choclate if there's no milk chocolate in the house. Hairspray- can't go a day without it! Also, eyeliner if I am leaving the house. F- Favorite pastime: Being on the computer doing various things such as blogging, reading email, checking out the classified adds on ksl.com. Shopping is fun for me IF I have money to spend. G- Good at: finding bargains. H- Have never tried: It's sad but true- I've never downhill skied. I ONCE cross country skied and if you saw that you would thank your lucky stars you've never met me on the slopes. I- If I had a million dollars: it would be spent in a second is what my husband would say. Seriously, I would go on a cruise, visit Hawaii, pay off the house, save the rest for retirement since you need more than a million to retire comfortably. Believe me, I've been in the nursing homes and I wouldn't want to stay in those. Assisted living is the way to go and they are more expensive! J- Junkie for: food, food, food and pizza, chocolate, icecream and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. K- Kindred spirit: My big younger brother Randy. He looks out for me. 'Nuff said. L- Little known fact: I was inspired to write a song for a cousin while her husband was passing away of liver failure. I wrote the lyrics and the melody and had my other cousin Kathy compose the piano music. From the time I received the vision and part of the melody, until we had a finished copy of music was two weeks! My cousins husband passed the day Kathy brought me the finished music. She had used a program at Weber State University where you play the music and it prints out the music in sheet form. The song is called "Thou Gavest Me". I have received more ideas for songs but I haven't got nearly as far on them as the first one. M-Memorable moment: When I got an answer to a prayer in high school. It was the first time I really knew God listened to me and knew my needs and it changed the course of my entire life. N-Never again will I: This one is hard for me because I tend to repeat my mistakes- even if it is several years later. Aha- buy from an infomercial without consulting my husband first! O-Occasional Indulgence: Okay- here is one of my bad indulgences- sometimes I will buy the magazine "People" and read it from cover to cover. I know it is full of garbage, but I enjoy keeping up with some of the celebrities especially the ones that just had babies. P-Profession: Daycare provider, Mother, Wife, Sister, Daughter
