A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday 9/22

{one} what is your happiest childhood memory?
Christmastime. My mom’s family has a huuuuggggeee Christmas celebration.. During my childhood, we all went to Seminole Stat Park in south GA and each family rented a cabin. Each night, a different family would be in charge of the activities and food and then on Christmas eve we would start at 2 in the afternoon and have games, songs, stories into the evening and then the guys would distribute the presents and we’d go around and open presents one at a time. Afterwards, we’d have a bonfire and roast marshmallows. Christmas morning we would all sleep in and then play dominoes tournaments, watch the parade, and eat our huge feast. That was the one week that I would look forward to all year long and still do to this day… this year we’re going to Pigeon Forge!!! It’s going to be a BLAST!

{two} what is your middle name?
Marlene, it’s my middle name, my mom’s middle name, and my grandmother’s middle name and one day it will be my daughter’s middle name

{three} what’s the habit you’re most proud of breaking?
Um… staying up too late and being tired the next morning? oh wait, I still do that!

{four} what do you order when you order chinese food?
Sesame Chicken, noodles, and the broccoli with the chicken

{five} what’s the best bargain you’ve ever found at a garage sale or thrift store?
Oh, this one is good! While down in TN I found Micah a military-issue Gortex outerwear jacket. Micah has one as part of his uniform for the Coast Guard and it was $150 brand new. Even used (like on Ebay), you’re lucky if you find one for less than $100. I found one that a retired Army guy was selling, in green camo print, no less, for… drumroll please…. 50 cents! YES! 50 cents!!!!!

{nine} what’s your least favorite word?
Swear words, if they can even be called actual “words”

{ten} describe something that happened to you for which you have no explanation.

There is always an explanation, and many times it’s simply, “That was God’s will” but lately, we’ve been blessed beyond measure. Good things happened that should not have even been possible, but “with God, all things are possible.
