10 Things

I have been tagged by Chris to give you 10 things you probably do not know about me. So here goes... I hope this is insightful.
1. I am allergic to cats but had as many as 22 at a time when I was small... maybe that is why! 2. I do not like the color green, but I love nature and all of it's green glory. 3. As a child, I loved to sit high up in a mimosa tree and watch the world go round. 4. I loved climbing trees as a child and fell one time... requirring 8 stitches to my leg. 5. I love children's literature and reading aloud to children. 6. I have a gold pin with 12 bars on it for 12 years of perfect attendance in Sunday School. 7. I was a member of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority while in college. 8. I love the sun but must use lots of sunscreen due to skin cancer requirring skin grafts. 9. I love ICED TEA, year round... very sweet like all good southern girls. 10. I read two daily newspapers from cover to cover along with several online news sites. I hope you were able to learn something new about me today. You have BLESSED me with your great blogs and I am thankful for that. If you would like to do this meme... consider yourself TAGGED!

You are an interesting AND thoughtful person. Thank you for mentioning my mom in your last comment. I made sure she got it (and other comments) before going out for her birthday dinner tonight.

Wow, I've learned a lot of new things about you today. I also used to love and climb trees. We had a really tall pine tree next door to where I grew up and I could climb that sucker in 2 minutes, no problem. And that included having to jump for the lowest branch and walking up the side until I could swing my leg over it (the lowest branch) and pull myself up. Now I would be lucky if I could even pull myself up. LOL.

You are so sweet Nancy, and it is nice to get to know a little more about you. I love children's literature too. I've gone back to try to fill in the gaps that were left in my own childhood reading. Imagine not knowing about Anne of Green Gables or the Little House books. They just weren't in vogue at the time I think.
You just can't know what your comment to day meant to me Nancy. I love to write and had been asking God if He would please use it in some way. To think that I might minister to you in any small way is so humbling and such a blessing to me. Thank you so much.

What fun information!!

Were the Sunday School pins part of that Cross and Crown series? We had that when I was a little girl, but I don't have mine now.

Great list Nancy!
I also love reading aloud to children and do all the little "voices"
Instilling the love of reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children, isn't it??

Hello Nancy! It's nice to meet you. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog (A Child of God) and your kind comments.

I never climbed trees much for fear of falling. Once I did fall and knocked my air out...scared me bad. I LOVE iced tea...sweet...all year!

Never did much in SS, but have more than made up for it now that I have a relationship with Jesus!

Have a blessed Wednesday!

My goodness, you sound like a very interesting, intelligent, "with it" person! I must be an honorary southern girl. I love sweet iced tea too.

My little munchkin Katherine likes to climb trees too and she has a favorite one she sits in and watches the world. She even eats lunch up there, and she calls it her bumblebee tree.

P.S. I just read your comments on Tom's blog (Patterns of Ink), and you have said it all so eloquently.

...Just wanted to let you know.

It was so great to learn more about you, Nancy! :)

Also, I scrolled down to read how your sweet dog is going to be helping others...I just love that!

Nancy, I am most impressed with your 12 years of perfect attendance at Sunday School. I don't have anything comparable to that except one year I received a perfect attendance pin for choir.

I may take you up on that tag. Sounds like fun.

Oh, and by the way, one of my best childhood friends was a Nancy.

Nancy, I just read your post about your wee baby boy, and it broke my heart. How awful that was for you. I don't know what to say. My best friend's little baby boy had exactly the same thing, and it took her forever to get over it, and in fact she never really has, and I'm sure you haven't either.

You're a very strong person.

What a fun list. Thanks for your kind comment on my latest story about Kev. I am having a wonderful time in Georgia - you're right, the weather has been great. But we missed the flowers - they got zapped by that frost and are all gone. But the trees and other green things are so gorgeous - I especially love the huge live oaks. It has been so great to connect with the real life characters in Eugenia Price's books. Can't wait to share pictures and stories.

If there were two trees I could transplant from my home state, Texas, to Colorado it would be the magnolia and the mimosa. I so remember big huge mimosas in our yard with all those wonderful whispy pink flowers all over them as if they were draped there.

I also remember the giant bumblebees the mimosa trees attracted!

Sadly, a mimosa wouldn't last one winter in Colorado. Nor would a magnolia for that matter. Sigh. Poor me. I'm stuck with all these blue spruce. :-)

What memories that simple statement brought back to me.
