Three Things Thursday- January 9


Three Things Thursday

3 Little Known Facts About Me: 


1.  I was a pastor's wife for 5 years.  My husband pastored two churches in Illinois.  We moved to Tennessee in 2007 with visions of starting a non-traditional type "church".  We now have a small simple church that meets in our home. 

2.   When I was a teenager, I wanted to be a candy-striper really bad.  I thought that would be the coolest thing.  For various reasons, I never became a candy-striper....then!     While my husband pastored in Illinois, I was looking for a way to get out into the community and out of the house with a toddler and a baby.  A friend suggested I volunteer with the local hospital auxiliary.  When I got there for my first day, they could not find a standard red jacket for me to wear.  They held up a candy-striper vest and asked if I minded!  Of course, I didn't mind.  My dream of becoming a candy-striper came true.  I wore my vest with pride as I delivered mail, filled up water cups and help spread cheer all over the place.  My last day I had to restrain myself from asking could I keep the vest.   (I might just have to go bid for this one on ebay and wear it every time my children get sick...just kidding!)

3.  In college, I won 2nd place in an aria contest while having full on strep throat.  My professor who had performed in the past with the flu and while running a 103 degree fever assured me I could do it.  Her pep talk in my mind was saying...don't be such a wimp.   I wasn't so sure I could do it,  but I did!  I hit every note!  Just goes to show what you can do with a little encouragement and when you put your mind to it.

  1. Thanks so much for linking up this week! It was fun to learn a bit more about you. When I was a teenager, my mom worked at a nursing home and I got a "job" as a geri-striper. We had a pinafore type thing we wore and we'd earn pins for working a certain number of hours. I loved filling ice buckets, painting residents' nails, writing letters for them, etc. My least favorite part of that job was feeding them. Ick!
