  1. 🙂 Thank you Terry. Here goes!

    1. Change. I don’t know why, but for some reason the older I get the more big changes terrify me. It’s something I need to pray more about.

    2. Honest answer – I could live without any possessions. In the spirit of the question though…I will say a shirt, a pair of pants, and underwear. Without ’em I’d be naked and that wouldn’t be good for anyone!

    3. Haha wow, I will say…yes. To show what will be missed when they are gone.

    4. I always liked Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes. Not the mischievous side, but the adventurous side that goes sledding, takes walks in the woods, etc.

    5. The Roller Coaster

    6. Boy, that’s tough. Probably be executed but that’s the easy way out so I don’t know. Life in prison to me is the one thing that I don’t know if I could handle. Maybe that’s an alternate answer to #1!

    7. Hanging with the wrong crowd and doing stuff we shouldn’t have been doing.

    8. I think we can all be spiritual leaders!

    9. The innocence.

    10. My family couldn’t afford doctors and hospitals, so when it came time for my mother to deliver, a midwife came and assisted.

    11. I just sent one to my sister after she had her baby 🙂 Last week.
