The "Monkey" Minute

Well, hello again! It's Monday again & time for the Monday Minute (hosted by Ian) only today, we are calling it the Monkey Minute in honor of a baby and her family. Monkey (the baby), has cancer. This family needs your prayers now, more than ever. So, if you would like to, pick up the button below and share it with others on your blog. I know, and I have seen that prayer can work miracles in the biggest way. God listens, and He can heal this baby. So please, take the button and ask everyone you know to pray for this family.


Now, onto the questions for today:

1 - How old do you act?
People have always said that I act a lot older than I am. I'd say I probably act a good 5 to 10 years older than my age. That would put me at 27 to 32. Scary isn't it?

2 - As far back as you can remember, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little, I knew that I was going to be a teacher. I asked for an overhead projector for Christmas one year. Then, I got to college, and my Intro to Education Professor, completely talked me out of it. I don't know why she did, or if that was her intent...but she did. I changed majors after that, and decided I wanted to work for D.S.S so I was going to major in Psychology. Of course, I dropped out because I got married (and got pregnant)...and if I had never dropped out of College...I would have graduated this past Thursday. I'm thinking I should throw myself a little Graduation party anyway!

3 - If you were to write a book based on your life, what would the title be?
"Life in the Fast Lane" although, I'm sure someone has already titled a book that.

4 - What's something that you do that's considered "childish" by most?
I can pitch a pretty good fit if I don't get my way sometimes. I whine too...but not a lot...

5 - The last question isn't a question. Write a story of a time of when you or someone you know overcame great adversity.
When you get married, you kind of forget that it costs a lot of money to keep two people alive...then you add a baby onto that and you're nearly broke. We have struggled constantly with money, and finding Paul a good job. Finally, last June, God opened a door for Paul and we have been able to establish ourselves a little more. We're not rich, but we're not scraping the bottom of the checking out when rent & utilities go out either. I look back on those times, and wonder how in the world we even made it. How did we keep a place to live, and food in our tummies? I know, that the only thing that got us through those times was God. He provided for us every step of the way, and He still provides.

I had planned on doing this weeks Monday Minute as a vlog, but of course...things change. So, maybe next week! Again, keep Monkey & her family in your prayers.

I hear I'm a bigtime whiner too but I don't believe it! LOL
So glad your hubby got a good job. Such a relief. :)

The Hubs says I whine, I think he's a liar. =)

Maybe he should always give me what I want. How hard would that be??

You do seem very mature for your age, in a good way though!

I agree on the pitching a good fit when you don't get your way. That is kinda me :)
