I have been tagged by Zetor

1.What were you doing 5 years ago ?
We took a job in Florida. For me it was a dream and for John a place to sharpen his photography and work close to nature. But it was not to be a good experience. We than took a job at a huge apartment complex as John being a supervisor. That is where we encountered the toxic mold and lost all our possessions and have faced some hard health issues since than. It was some hard times but we learned a lot. God never allows us to go to a place to let us go...we learned to hold on tight to His precious hand and trust Him to teach us. We learned gossip will not kill you because the truth wins out. Our Heavenly Father walked with us each step of the way!

2. What 5 things on your to-do list today?
It is evening and I am finishing our meal. I did get my items done.
I finished 2 loads of wash, went to the grocery store, made smoothies for lunch, and cleaned some of my craft room. We are having a shrimp boil and fresh hot bread for our meal. Than I exercise my knee.

3. What 5 snacks do you enjoy?
Fresh fruit
Hot Tea with a sweet
salty snacks
Kettle cooked potato chips
Fresh tomatoes

4.What 5 things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Pay college for my 4 grand kids.
Help a missionary friend that goes to Honduras way up in the mountains where he must walk. The needs are so great there.
Help some elderly people that are lonely and living without much food or being able to afford their medicine.
Open a home for unwanted foster kids. I have had 23 in my life and know so many need help.
The last one goes with the above. People give foster kids awful clothes. They need a clothes closet to go to that allows a teen to learn how to dress and with nice clothes. We did that when we ran a home for teen girls and had stores give us things that we could mend or clean. We had prom gowns for them and good shoes and with the clothes came lessons on being a lady. It was successful.

5. What 5 jobs have you done?
I am a wife, mother and grandma.
Nanny after high school.
Retail work as a teen and than when I owned my own craft store.
Owned my catering business
I was an aide to farm workers children under a Federal program and I loved it!

I will let you all know who I tagged tomorrow.

Hi! This is Cyn from the AtlantaStitchers list :-)

There is a group, although I can't remember its name at the moment, that has a place where foster families can go get clothes and such for kids every season. They have toys for the little ones, and books and CDs and the like for teens. We take donations of outgrown clothes and such there whenever we can. We learned about them because a friend of ours was a foster parent for years, and I went there with her to pick up things for her sweetlings a few times.
