Seven things you may not know about me.
 
1. I was born in Missouri but never lived there.
 
2. I'm the baby (youngest) of the family.
 
3. As a child I had a lot of nightmares and would run in my parents room and jump in my parents bed.  I still remember how safe I felt between my parents.
 
4. In public school we said a pledge to the US flag and also prayed the Lord's prayer every morning.
 
5. I remember having bomb threats in our High School because of forced integration.
 
6.  I was 17 when I graduated.  My favorite subject was biology.  Didn't cry at my graduation, in fact I was glad to be done with school.  My desire was to someday be a wife and mother.
 
7. I got married when I was 18, six months later Mr P and I had an instant family, a two year old and five year old, my sister-in-law died and we took in the two children.  Because of the love between the children and my husband and I my brother allowed us to adopt them.  Six months later my brother was killed by a drunk driver.

    Wow! That is so fascinating about your family. Your brother must've had a premonition or something. How did SIL die?
    I had a lot of nightmares as a child, too. I slept with my parents until I was 7 when my brother was born. He slept with them until he was 10!

    #7, Lord have mercy. And bless your heart for being a shelter that these two precious kids could come running into. I'm sure you thought nothing of it, it was just your "normal" but it is a cool thing you have done!! God bless!

    A little birdie told me that you and Mr. P are going to be back up this way on Friday?!?! Woohoo! It's a shame you won't be back for the last ladies' bible study on Wednesday, but I'll be glad to have you back all the same!

    Wow — #7 is an amazing story. Clearly you and Mr.P were destined to hold that part of your family together.

    God gives us Grace just when we need it!

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. I'm NOT looking forward to the cold!!

  8. Grandma-P says:

    I saw God's hand in that whole situation.

    I almost mentioned it was ridiculously cold and windy here today, but then I was afraid you might not come back!
