Candid interview

So, one of my internet friends over at "The Glamorous Life of a Hausfrau" did this cool interview thing and I volunteered. (I know, brave of me, huh?)

Here we go:

1. If you could learn any language, effortlessly, which would you pick and why?
I think Italian or French as, for whatever reason, I've always like the "Romance languages" (I know a bit of French, or used to, having been raised in Canada but you know, what you don't use, you lose).

2. What is your dream job?
Well, I love what I'm doing now (the mom gig, and the secretarial gig, but mostly the mom gig). I've often thought that I'd liked to go back to school and maybe go into social work or counseling. Really, though, I just want to do whatever God calls me to do. I know that might sound like a cop out but I've had my "dream job" change often enough that I know I have little to do with it!

3. What do you never leave home without?
I hate to admit it but it's my cell phone. Bleh. Mostly because Leland HATES it when he can't get ahold of me. Not that he's possessive or calls me all the time or anything but if we're going to have cell phones, we better be using them! (I guess that would make him mostly practical).

4. If you could send a message to your 18 year old self, what would it be?
Oh. My. I have NO idea how to answer this. Hmmmmm... Hold on, honey, it's going to be a bumpy ride! LOL. Seriously, I'd like to tell my 18 year old self that she's stronger than she thinks she is, that if she only knew how much God loved her and could hang on to that, she could save herself a world of heartache. Of course, I'd be a little afraid of altering my path and as painful as parts of it have been, the choices my 18 year old self made have contributed to getting me here! So, I guess I'd stick with Hold on Honey!

5. What is your most prized (non human) possession?
This changes frequently. Currently, I'd have to say it's the locket my mother gave me for my birthday this past August. It's one of those lockets that holds four pics in it and she put in a picture of each of my kids, Sean, Cary, Kayleigh, Seth. I love having them all close to my heart when we're not together. Especially now.

So, those are MY five answers. Thanks for the opportunity to do something a little different, ETW!

Here are the rest of the rules:

"Put the rest of the rules in your post:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions. (for the love of Pete, make it easy for me to find your email know mine).
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions."

I'll interview the FIRST person to ask in comments! And to read the interview that started this for ME, click here!

O.K., so I'm way behind, and I'm reading the last three blog posts! Seriously though, the first of the three had me in tears. I didn't ever think I could care for or have the emotional strength to have Colin and all that that entails, but yet I do it every day, with God's help. I know that does NOT compare to what you have been through, but I guess we do have the inner strength to handle whatever life brings us if we can lean on God. I think of you often and didn't leave, just very behind. LOL :)
