Filled With Praise...Happy Blog-Day

Amy, from Filled With Praise , is hosting a great little Blog Birthday Party over at her place and has given people a chance to join in on all the party fun with amazing giveaways.  You can click on the button on the left to read about the party and you click HERE to read about all the cool prizes that could come from simply taking the time to answer a few questions about yourself.  I like the way Amy throws a party!!!  

So, without further delay (...cuz I just know that you guys are dying for my answers...), let us away!!

~*~ If you could have dinner with any person (past or present)
who would it be? ~*~ 

I can honestly say that at least fifteen names jumped into my head when I read this question...from the movie stars that I adore to watch on screen to the huge Bible stars that I often wonder about.  Buuuut, I would pick my paternal grandfather. 

He died from cancer when I was 13...and it is from him that I got my red hair.  I had a close relationship with him as a small child and I would love the chance to sit with him, talking about all that he's missed in being gone...showing him pictures of the red heads that I have now, ones that stemmed from his genes.  ...and I would love to know that he is proud of me.
~*~ What is your most embarrassing moment that you are
willing to share with the blogging world? ~*~ 

I love how it adds "willing to share with the blogging world"...as there are SO many that I will not be posting here and have, in fact, paid my closest friends large sums of money to keep their traps shut!  (...checks are in the mail, guys...I promise!!...) 

I'll be honest that there are many to choose from as I am rather clutzy, but one that still makes me red-faced at the mere thought of it is this:

I met my hubby online...so for the first almost month, we only spoke on the phone and wrote emails to each other.

In our email-based flirting, I started "grading" him on his responses...

...and after one particularly touching reply, I sent to him: "You get the grade of "S" for stealing my heart." 

HUGE confession for me as I hadn't met him yet and I was already madly over the moon for him...and I sat there, so nervous I wanted to throw up...what would he saywas it too much to confesstoo soonaaaauuuggghhh!!

Then my email showed a reply and nervously, I clicked to see if he was ready to run away screaming from the psycho girl who loved a man she hadn't even seen in person...and what I found was something along the lines of "Ahhh...thanks...  But I have a question...but how exactly did I manage to leave you cold from way over here??? (PS - you should scroll back down to your email and re-read the grade you gave me...hee hee)"

I wrinkled my brow and scrolled back down to see what I had said that confused him so...

...and there it was. 

Yeah, it seems that in typing so fast, I forgot the "r" in heart...and so had graded him, a man I had yet to even meet, for stealing my HEAT.

I. Wanted. To. Die.

Buuuuut, I guess it worked out tho...we met the next day and the rest is, as they say, history. :0)

~*~ If you could only use one word to describe yourself,
what would it be? ~*~

I am really a mess of so many words...but when it comes down to having to choose just one, I realize that anything I do, I full force and with all of my heart.  I don't know how to love halfway...if I commit to something, I do it with all my heart.

~*~ You found a machine that allows you to fast forward your life to a moment or to rewind your life to a certain moment, but it can only be used for one moment. Would you fast forward or rewind and to which moment would you choose? ~*~ 

Oh so many thoughts!!!  Hard to juggle them all...but I would have to say I would go forward to the end when I am finally wrapped up in the hug of my Savior.  Total Bible answer, I know, but it is honest cuz to me...that is the only moment that makes it all worth it.

~*~ What is your favorite simple blessing in life? ~*~

...the love of my husband and children.... 
It isn't perfect and it isn't easy...but the moments in which one of them stops and actually vocalizes their thoughts for me,...me..., it just blows my mind.

~*~ I hope you guys will take the time to check out Amy's blog, Filled With Praise, as it is a faith-filled place to be. :o) I wish you all the best of weekends...see you next week. ~*~

Happy Blog-Birth-Day, Amy
~ here's to another great year ~

Listening to Remedy Drive's Sunshine Above The Weather while looking up as always...

Great answers!!!!
Some of those are tough questions to pick just one, but you did a great job!!
I must say, even as appealing as you make the time travel look, I think I'd pass. I would do something to screw up and change history in some catastrophic way. ;)

Great answers! I laughed at your email...That really cracked me up. I once sent an email about a luncheon at work and asked everyone to plug in their cock pots. Sad.
