The Truth of the Matter - Part III

I’m really enjoying answering your questions.

Art asked, “What makes you most happy?”

What makes me the happiest is when my family, Tom and our children are happy. I’m really a simple kind of gal. I’m most content when I know my children are doing well and they are happy with their lives. When Tom is happy with life then I feel content, maybe it has to do with the two becoming one flesh thing. No matter what good comes my way, if my family isn’t there to share it and happy themselves then it’s not worth much to me.

EM asked, “What advice would you give a young woman who is searching for direction in her life as well as purpose?”

I would ask her what she is passionate about. What fuels her fire? Where there is passion there is life. If it means going to school to pursue that dream, then do that. I would also tell her not to settle, but to aim high. Everyone has something they are passionate about. Don’t walk, run towards that goal. You don’t have to search further than what is already in your heart.

Ann(ie) asked, “Do you have a fear of death?”

My faith helps me not to fear death. I’m confident about where I’ll end up after I die. To be honest, I’m not too hot about the process of dying. My preference would be to go in my sleep at the same time that Tom goes in his sleep when we are about 100. I don’t know when I’ll go home to the Lord, but until then I want to live life to the fullest.

A Woman Who is asked, “What life experiences move you the most?”

What life experiences move me the most would have to be when I married Tom, when my children were born and whenever I see complete joy in the eyes of my loved ones. For me weddings and births are the best of life experiences.

“Would you rather cry over something sweet or laugh over something funny?”

I would rather laugh over something funny, because I love to laugh. Sometimes I laugh so hard, I cry.

Jen(n) asked, “If you and Tom could have a vacation home anywhere in the world, with money being no object, where would you buy?”

No question or thought about this one, a villa in Tuscany on the top of a hill overlooking a vineyard that we don’t have to tend to.
More answers to come.

That Tuscan retreat sounds fab!

And this: "My preference would be to go in my sleep at the same time that Tom goes in his sleep when we are about 100." I hope that will be true! Have you seen the movie The Notebook?
