~ Say "thank you" to their faces, not just on a blog or Facebook. See if their families have a need that can't be met because the soldier is away....and do what you can to meet the need. Be a friend, a listening ear. a shoulder to lean on. Teach your children to respect the military, the flag and what they stand for. Send packages. Write letters. There are a lot of soldiers overseas that never get mail. The list is endless.
2. Besides a flag what is something you own that is red, white and blue?
~ I have a couple pairs of earrings...we might have some sheets....oh, and Tim's big fleece Marines blanket. I can't think of anything else. We do have lots of flags, though.
3. Does love really conquer all?
~ In the long run. God is love and the greatest commandment is to love one another. If we love as God loves....then, yeah, it beats all in the end.
4. Strawberry shortcake or blueberry pie?
~ Strawberry shortcake, please?
5. Do you share personal stuff with your hairdresser?
~ Up to a point. I've known her for a while. Our kids went to school together. Her daughter's boyfriend (at the time) tried to break into my house. We have some history, so we talk.
6. Does money lead to selfishness?
~ Not necessarily, but if a person isn't grounded in what is really important it will probably lead that way.
7. What piece of furniture in your home most needs replacing or refinishing?
~ The armchair and ottoman that belonged to my dad. It is so dirty and it kind of smells a bit, too, but I can't bring myself to get rid of it. I'd love to have it recovered.
