Favorite Memories

Okay I found this on susie's blog and thought I would join in on it.

1. Favorite memory of your mother?
I guess my favorite memory of my mother would be her baking all the the time. We always had homemade birthday cakes. And she would make this 7 minute frosting to go on them. She could bake anything. I miss her chocolate pie's. I can't really make them like her but I am pretty close. I miss her homemade yeast rolls also. She spent most of her time in the kitchen but unfortunally things changed after my parents got divorced after 36 years of marriage. She does not cook the same anymore and she really is not the same person anymore. Which is hard for me.

2. Favorite memory of your father?
My Dad was always taking picutres of us. He always had the camera ready. We had a picture drawer where all the pictures went and I always loved getting into that drawer and looking at the pictures. So I guess that is where I get my love of taking pictures. From him.

3. Favorite memory of your siblings?
My sister and I as kids were always together. We did everything together. We would ride our bikes together all the time everywhere, that is my favorite memory.

4. What one skill would you like to wake up tomorrow and be able to do(though you never learned it)?
Speak spanish. It is so hard to learn a language when you are an adult. I want to learn it so I can speak to the people on the mission trips to mexico. I want to be able to communicate with them.

5. Which of your dreams has come true?
Okay somehow I missed this question so I adding now. Well I would have to say God leading us to where we are now and being apart of a wonderful church and having God back in my life. It has been a long journey to get to where I am. But I can look back and see that God was working in my life even when I thought he wasn't. He had his hand in all the times of despair and uncertain moments in our life even though I did not realize it at the time. I am amazed!
