I like the one about the mud pit, lol! About your comment: That is so funny and you know what, I think it's true! It's always the nouns that stump me.

Dear Jenny,

I am always happy to see that you have visited my blog. :)
Thank you!

Which item on this long list do you think is the most amazing thing about your life?

You would probably say adopting children, which is something not most people would have highlighted. If this is the most amazing, which item would be second?

Now don’t forget to answer this question, because I really want to know. :)

Love, Ernestine

WOW, you're pretty exciting...me, not so much. :-)

And how WAY cool that you've seen a meteor shower! I would sooo love to witness one! I'm constantly in awe with all of God's creation...especially in the sky!

Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

Bless you dear sister,
Sunny

I missed that item 89. Saved someone’s life...yes - over the phone as a 911 dispatcher and by leading them to the Lord, and therefore having eternal life.
It was not in bold and I was focusing on the bold answers.
That one, of course is the most amazing…so now I still am looking forward to your answer…maybe I should be asking for your three most amazing items.

Love you!
Ernestine

As for the Meteor Shower... It was right after my dh and I got married. After I'd gone to bed he set up our lawn chairs, blankets, the hair dryer with an extention cord, and whatever else he thought we'd need to keep warm. Then he woke me up in the middle of the night to go watch the sky with him. I VALUE my sleep... way more than I should, and I was so thankful that I trusted him to get out of my cozy bed, in the dead of night, in the winter. It was amazing!!!! One of my favorite married memories. And the meteor shower was pretty cool, too. :)

Ernestine, probably the most amazing item/s on that list were the ones I realize now I just took for granted growing up. I got to see Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon. I got to swim in the Great Salt Lake. Things that growing up I just thought everyone did, but with those being on a list that many people don't get to re-copy in "bold"... Well, I need to thank my parents for some pretty incredible experiences. I was 21 when my mom, my sister (in the army) and I went to see the Alamo on our way to the Riverwalk? Mall. Pretty much the ONLY reason we even went was to say we did and because my dad is such a history buff. Ugh! The things I've just taken advantage of.
