Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud).  Cheers to all of us thieves!


From Days of Gratitude




1. Name something in the room you are grateful for.
All of the photo albums (50 or more), which give me a photographic history of our family.

2. Recall a favorite memory you are grateful for
There are a lot of memories I am grateful for, but here's a little one I have not mentioned before.  It was the production of Something's Afoot by the Lamplighters in 1984. I sat right behind the conductor with a bell and during the opening number, I rang the bell three or four times when new people came on stage.  My first and only time being part of an orchestra.

3. Who helped you today?
We went to a picnic and everybody there helped me with being seated, getting food, etc.

4. What possession makes your life easier?
The "sock slider" I bought a few weeks ago, which helps me get my socks on, since I can't bend over to do it easily.

5. What’s the best thing that happened today?
We had the annual Paul Picnic, a gathering of friends of our son Paul, who died in 1999.  his best friend started this picnic in, I believe, 2000 and has hosted it every year since then.

6. Name something in nature that you are grateful for.
That's easy.

7. What painful experience helped you grow?
The death of my friend Gilbert in 1986 was my first experience with close death.  I took me a year to work through the grief.  When our son David died in 1996, I knew why I had experienced grief after Gilbert's death -- it helped me get the family through David's death.

8. What is your best skill?
Writing, I guess.

9. What person in your past are you most grateful for?
Sister Anne, my typing teacher who became my friend and was my friend until her death over 25 years ago.  Jeri is named for her.

10. What risk are you most grateful for taking?
Quitting a job with an attorney that I hated.  Best decision I made that year!

11. Name something/someone that makes you feel safe.
Walt makes me feel very safe.  I am fortunate to have such a husband.  And Ned makes us both feel safe!

12. Name a challenge you have overcome.
In the days when I was working with La Leche League, I learned how to speak to a crowd.  Probably couldn't do it today!  I hate public speaking.

13. What small things are you grateful for today?
Paul's wonderful, talented friends.

14. What smell are you most grateful for?
I am always grateful when I smell coffee in the morning because it means that someone else has made the coffee and all I have to do is wake up and pour myself a cup.

15. What is your proudest accomplishment
Raising 5 kids, the 3 living ones of whom are each talented, responsible, kind, generous and friends to each other and to us.  I read so much about family problems that other people have and I am so pleased that we do not have those problems.


The girls' school pictures
I hardly recognize Brianna!!
