25 Random Things

Two weeks ago one of my friends (Kelley) tagged me in 25 Random Things on facebook. I wrote it out and low and behold I pressed the wrong button and lost it in cyber world. I was so frustrated that I just quit until another friend (Niki) tagged me. I have truly enjoyed reading about all of my friends on facebook. So today I am going to tag you. You might be surprised what you find out about your friends and what they find out about you.

25 Random Things

1. I was born in Chitose Japan.
2. I was a flower girl in an Ethiopian wedding.
3. I climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa with my dad. It was one of the most exciting and scary things I have ever done.
4. I loved the story about Anne Frank and when I was in 4th grade I got to go to her house.
5. I visited the Eagles Nest where Hitler lived in Austria.
6. I had gone to 7 schools by the time I finished 8th grade.
7. I went to kindergarten twice. No, it wasn't because I failed. I was to young to go to first grade. 8. I was an Army Brat and proud of it. That explains the places above.
9. At the end of my eighth grade year my dad got orders to move to Honolulu Hawaii. To my disappointment he turned them down. He wanted me to go to the same High School for four years and we were only going to be there 2 years. Instead he moved us back to Cumberland County. Ozone Tennessee. Population 200. Little did I know that the love of my life would be there. (Thanks Dad!)
10. I met Kenny in 9th grade in photography class. We dated in 10th and part of 11th grade.
11. I was a cheerleader in 10th, 11th and 12th grade. I was the co-captain my senior yr. I guess this is where Kacey gets the cheer leading bug.
12. The summer before my senior year I had a car wreck. I flipped my car, it threw me out and the car rolled over me. I landed in a mud puddle and I have always thought that God put that mud puddle there to save me. I spent 3 weeks in UT hospital.
13. I went to beauty school in Oakridge TN. During this time I had some really stupid hair cuts.
14. Kenny and I met up again in the fall of 86' it took us about 2 week to decide that we wanted to get married. We were married on November 15, 1986.
15. We ran a pool hall and game room.
16. I love Long Island, New York and New York City.
17. By 1991 we had gotten out of church and the Lord sent Kenny, me and his whole family to Hawaii to teach us a lesson. He put us in the most beautiful place in the world and made us miserable. Long story short there is only two Southern Baptist Churches in Hawaii and one of them was in walking distance of our house. Once we were back in church and following the Lord again He let us come back to Tennessee. Some great memories but I have never had the desire to go back to Hawaii.
18. We ran a tanning salon. Loved being brown, loved the people but hated the hours.
19. Don't tell my girls but they are a lot like me. I didn't want my mom to tell me that either. I am a lot like her.
20. I carried Alycia 3 weeks over and I had her in an emergency c-section.
21. I slept in a baby hospital bed for a week when Kacey had RSV.
22. I have the most amazing group of friends at my church. Godly good women.
23. I am a country music nut. We go to Fan Fair every year and act like tourists. If you see us that week please ignore the cowboy hats.
24. The older I get the more I know that it is not about the stuff you is about family, friends and most importantly God.
25. I am crazy about my Lord and Savior Jesus!! I hope you are too. God is so Good!

Welcome your've had a some fascinating experiences. Isn't it awesome how sometimes God brings us into "exile" (for me it was NJ, for you it was Hawaii) to do what He wants in our hearts?
Thanks for sharing
