1. When the children of today grow up, what do you think they'll say about this period in time? What do you most hope they remember?
I suspect what they'll remember is all the technology and how much it will probably have changed.
I hope they remember that no matter what comes, God is still in control.
2. National Teacher's Day is celebrated in the US of A on the first Tuesday in May, this year May 7th...share how a particular teacher positively impacted you.
Miss Ross. She was my Latin teacher in high school. Her enthusiasm always made me look forward to her class. She also helped me step out of my comfort zone and participate and talk in class (and be comfortable doing that! I was horribly afraid of speaking in front of my classmates.)
3. What's a dish your mama made, that if set in front of you today would whisk you right back to childhood?
This is what it looks like in it's
frozen, non-cooked form.

4. Mother May I was a game we played when I was growing up...no pieces, parts, or plugs required. What games from childhood do you remember loving that were also pieces, parts, and plug-free?
Kick The Can - I remember playing this with my cousins in my grandma's yard.
School - I forget all the rules, but I remember we sat at the top of the stairs and somehow we would make our way down the stairs to the bottom (perhaps by answering questions or something?). The first one to the bottom won. My cousins' house had the best staircase for this game because you turned a curve in the middle! :D
5. Besides your own mother, tell us about a woman who influenced you as a child?
That would definitely be my cousin Deborah! She was a teenager when I was born and starting from when I was about 5 or 6, she always made time to spend with me. In fact, there are many, many moments (too numerous to name) when she invited me to go shopping, planned projects for us to do, or simply included me in her day. She just made a point to make me feel special and loved. Even after she got married and had a couple children of her own, she still made sure to invite me over and we'd chat as I helped her with whatever she was doing that day. When I think of my childhood, I always include her because she was so involved in my life. I could talk to her about anything! I've never asked her what made her decide to do that for me, but I'm incredibly thankful she did. Those memories are some of the best I have. :)
6. Mamma Mia! What's the best play or musical you've ever seen?
The Music Man - our high school put this production on and I loved it. And I love the movie versions too!
7. What are three smells that make you feel nostalgic?
My mother's perfume.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
So I've been listening to The Duck Commander Family audiobook this week. It's certainly made my drives to and from work a lot more interesting! Willie and Korie Robertson narrate their own book, which is fun because I love hearing their southern accents. :D
But I do have to confess that I've never watched their show. Have any of you? Do you like it? Not like it? I'm just curious what the show itself is like. I've heard good things, which is what prompted me to try the book.
