Getting To Know You

Monday night****** I really feel the need to post this tonight and ask you to pray.

Maggie Lee Henson, a 12 year old girl that is so dynamic, so absolutely lovely that not only can she brighten up a room, she can brighten a stadium! She was one of the youth that was on the First Baptist Shreveport bus that had a blow out on I-20 this past Sunday in Meridian, MS ,that killed one teenager and sent all others to the hospital. The bus blew a tire and flipped three times. Maggie Lee and another girl were trapped under the bus. Thank God a truck load of National Guardsmen were behind them on the freeway when it happened. They actually lifted the bus back upright!
Maggie Lee has severe head trauma. She is such a little fighter and has already defied the odds by still being alive. Her CT scan has shown severe brain stem damage, so much so that the Neurosurgeon said he cannot operate. She needs a MIRACLE. --so would you please pray and pass Maggie's name on to others. I know her family will be so grateful for your prayers.



Saturday night....
We are having so much fun that we have decided to extend our trip a few more days. This is such a fun resort and three more days sounded GREAT! As you can see Parker below is living the "good life" and we are enjoying every minute of it with him. So you have until Wednesday to get in on this drawing. This has been such a fun post and I have loved learning so much about my new blog friends.


Parker watching his 4th movie today in the hotels "heavenly bed"!

I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU.

I got this idea from another blogger and it sounded like fun. I have been blogging for about 5 months and the first few months of my blog was spent introducing you to me and my family. In the last months, I have made so many new friends....and even have some followers...which is a total surprise. I love blogging so much...and am actually learning so much from it. My blog will never be a serious, thought provoking blog, hopefully just a blog full of fun and family and lots of Kodak moments in picture . I love the other type blogs, but that's not what I feel led to do. I want mine to encourage, maybe even help (as in tree decorating tips) but most of all I want it to make you smile. One of the things that I have already learned is that we are ALL are more ALIKE then DIFFERENT. We share the same hopes and dreams, we all battle problems and disappointments and hurt comes to all of us. We ALL have a STORY.

So here's the DEAL!!!! I want to know more about you. I will even throw in a prize....a good prize!!!! I am in Dallas for the weekend with my husband and Parker. We are just having some R & R at a GREAT HOTEL...We will be home Sunday night, so I will let Parker draw around 10 PM.....you have a good chance to win, since only the comments from this post will be eligible. Just answer the following questions....they can be very short...do not feel like you have to write a book......so it should be easy and I will know you much BETTER.

1) Where are you from? (you don't have to answer this one if your not comfortable sharing)

2.) How long have you been blogging?

3) Married? single? how long?

4.) Just one of your FAVORITE Blogs?

5.) Your favorite thing to do when you have a FREE day?

6.) Any kids? grandkids? what are there names and what ages?

7.) Your favorite restaurant?

8.) What is your favorite TV show?

9.) What is the thing you wish you were more disciplined in ?

10.) Where is your FAVORITE place to vacation? For me hands down..DISNEY

Looking forward to getting to know better!!!!! SO JOIN IN!!!!!

6. I was not able to have children so I spoil my nieces and nephews.
7. As far as a favorite restaurant, there's a local place in Phoenix called Postino. It's a very casual happening place with a great menu of bruscetta and paninis and salads. Yummy and great ambiance.
8. My favorite TV show at the moment is "So You Think You Can Dance". I wish I could. :)
9. I wish I was more disciplined to say no to sweets and ice cream. This only started after menopause.
10. My favorite vacation spot is Carmel, California.

Shari said...

1) I was born and raised in Indiana. 30 miles outside of Cincinnati, Ohio

2.) I have been blogging for about 8 years (although not on blogspot). I found out blogging was therapy for myself. I could let my thoughts out online and not hold them in. IT WORKED!

3) This is a long story for me. I will spare all the nutty details. But on May 10th I have been married to the father of my children for 29 years. I have not lived with him for 10 years. He wont give me a divorce. yeah.. see.. long story!!

I middle child is Dean (male). He will be 27. He just recently moved back to Indiana. He has been living in Pennsylvania. He has a batchelors degree in Sports management and is living with my sister in Indianapolis for his current job.

My baby boy Drew is 24 TODAY!!! who crazy is that. Drew just graduated from College in Optometry and just took his DREAM JOB in Alaska. He will be moving there on August 2. Momma is gonna miss him. :(

7.) Red Lobest

8.) right now... my favorite show is Ice Road Truckers

9.) I wish I was more disciplined in telling the grand baby NO and hold to it.. it is to easy for Mimi's (grandma's) to say No! hehe

10.) Hannah (grand daughter goes to Disney 2 times a year). My parents have a house in Orlando. I do enjoy Disney.. and ALL of Florida. PS - I just suggested to my BF that WE start a fund and do as you do.. and take ALL of our kids to Disney as you have done.. it is now a goal of ours.

10. This is a real hard one, we don't go on vacations, we didn't even go on a honeymoon....we have dogs and cats and I'm not real trusting of other people taking care of them. I have heard stories in the past about boarding animals and I entrusted a friend to care for them just for 1 day, it was a disaster. So hubby and I agreed we could go on vacation separate but not together so one of us is always home. Then....I was supposed to go to Disney world with my mom and she got sick and couldn't go soooo....my favorite place to vacation is with my hubby visiting the local HOBBY LOBBY craft store!!!! : )

This was alot of fun!! Hugs to you and have a wonderful weekend!! Jennifer
