Ok. So I see God's purpose for me. I LOVE TO HELP OTHERS!!! It sounds like an ordinary thing, but I love helping others with their projects or running around for them when they can't do what needs to be done. I think God has given me all this time so that I can tell someone else "Don't worry, I can do that for you." I get a big rush from that. There are so many full-time working people out there that have other things that need to get done that they don't have time. What better person to do it than me! So if anyone needs anything done within a 30 mile radius of Willow Spring, NC, just send me an e-mail. LOL

My dad is very big on respecting the elders. I look at the way my kids react to us even as tough as I am on them and think, "I would have never said that or done that to my parents". There was one memory that I laugh at hysterically. My parents owned a full-service beauty salon and my mom worked most Saturdays so my dad had us for the day. He took us flying in airplanes (he has a pilot's license), out on the boat, McDonald's for pony rides, and then any sports we were in to. Our family was blessed. I won't say we were rich, but we were blessed. One Saturday, before debit cards, all my dad had was a $100 bill and it was lunch time. We went in to 3 different fast food restaurants and no one would take it. We finally went to Burger King and they said no too. Well my dad, instead of weaving all the way back through the line maze, he was going to unclip the chain to get out. A little boy stepped in front of him, grabbed the clip and told him "You can't go through here". Dad said "Excuse me" and tried to go through. He told my dad again, "You can't go through here". Dad tried to be nice and said it again. The Boy said it a 3rd time. Me and my sister cringed because we knew you just don't do that. In a loud thunder voice and Big bulging eyes he saids "MOVE!" That little boy ran back to his table. So funny! We ended up going to the grocery store and loaded up on junk. You would have to know my dad to understand how funny that story is.
