Late last night I was nominated for this award by Burning Fires.

It is odd that I can be inspiring to others when I have been battling my own demons inside of me. I have to admit through very hard work and the I AM THINKING OF MYSELF FOR ONCE I have begun to make changes in my life that are positive.

Taking care of my brother continues to inspire me. I will walk his journey through Parkinson’s Disease with him. Hopefully he will never feel alone. God inspires me, my friends here at WP and Facebook inspire me. So many of you have learned much more about me than I knew about myself. You have taught me to look at life from a different angle. You have shown me it is alright to think of me first once in a while. Thank-you to all who care.

Here are burning fires answers to the seven questions from her own nomination.

  1. I am a Jesus Freak… I love Jesus with all of my heart, soul, mind and strength… I think about Him when I wake up, when I lie down to sleep, and all of the in between times… He is a consuming fire, the love of my life, the reason I am alive, and I am able to love others deeply because HE LOVES ME!
  2. I love to sing, dance and worship the Lord… anywhere… anytime… If I’m at McDonald’s, WalMart, Food Lion, Family Dollar, Church… it doesn’t really matter, if there’s a song on my heart (which there usually is), I will sing loud, and dance for joy.
  3. I have a song for just about every conversation, and my children were blessed to inherit this unique ability as well…
  4. I have 2 grandpiggies (Guinea Pigs) named Sparkle Cupcake and Flower.
  5. I have 2 children and by July 2013, I will have 9 grandchildren – Hallelujah!
  6. My favorite color is purple… (I bet you didn’t see that coming!)
  7. I’ve asked God to let me live to be 120 years old like Moses, who had great eyesight and was fit enough to climb a mountain on the day he died.

As for me, there is not much to tell, since I am an open book. I can tell you that I look at my life with a brighter light today than two days ago.

How Old is grandma?

Stay with this — the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.


One evening a grandson
was talking to his grandmother about current events.
The grandson asked his grandmother what she
thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandmother replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:
television
penicillin
polio shots
frozen foods
Xerox
contact lenses
Frisbees and
the pill


There were no:

credit cards
laser beams or
ball-point pens
Man had not
yet invented:
pantyhose
air conditioners
dishwashers
clothes dryers
and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
man hadn’t yet walked on the moon

Your Grandfather and I got married first, and then lived together.
Every family had a father and a mother.
Until I was 25, I called every man
older than me, “Sir.”
And after I turned 25, I still called
policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.”
We were before gay-rights,
computer-dating, dual careers,daycare centers, and group therapy.
Our lives were governed by the Ten
Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.
We were taught to know the
difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living
in this country was a bigger privilege.
We thought fast food was what people
ate during Lent.
Having a meaningful relationship
meant getting along with your cousins.
Draft dodgers were those who closed front
doors as the evening breeze started.
Time-sharing meant time the family
spent together in the evenings and weekends -not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks
, CD’s, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny,
and the President’s speeches on our radios.
And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing
his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.
If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘
on it, it was junk.
The term ‘making out’ referred to how
you did on your school exam.
Pizza Hut, McDonald’s,
and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 &10-cent stores where you
could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar,
and a Pepsi were all a nickel.
And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could
spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600,
but who could afford one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:

“grass”was mowed,
“coke” was a cold drink,
“pot” was something your mother cooked in and
“rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.
“Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,
“chip” meant a piece of wood,
“hardware”was found in a hardware store and.
“software” wasn’t even a word.

And we were the last generation to
actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
No wonder people call us “old and
confused” and say there is a generation gap.
How old do
you think I am?
I bet you have this old lady
in mind. You are in for a shock!
Read on to see — pretty scary if
you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

Are you
ready?????

This woman would be only 59 years old, Born in 1952 -OUCH THAT HURT!!!.
