Okay, I thought the person below me game was fun and I learned a lot about all of you---same with betcha didn't know. This game is called answer a question, ask a question. All you do is answer the question the person above you asked and ask a new question for someone else. I'll start.
Wow, this is a hard one for me because I LOVE to read! My favorite book of all time is Little Women because it so soooo great! It goes back to a time when innocence prevailed. It is a beautiful story of love and loss. It makes me cry every time I read it. Some others that come to mind, since I can't just settle for one book are Bridge to Tarabithia and To Kill a Mockingbird. Oh yeah! The Bible is always great too!
Who has been the most influential person in your life and what have they done to help you along?
My mom! She not only has been a great mother, she is my best friend, mentor, counselor, and much much more. Her gift of prayer amazes me and makes me want to grow more in my prayer life!
What has God done for you recently?

She had the face of an angel
God has let me share the comfort He provided during my losses with a friend at church who lost her 6 week old to heart and other internal issues just before Christmas. I didn't really understand why we lost two pregnancies last year until I heard about sweet Savannah.
What is the nicest thing someone's ever done for you?
Do not sorrow; the joy of the Lord is your strength." Neh. 8:10
Ohh, so many things. What immedieately comes to mind is what my dh's niece did for me when we lost Macy. That morning before I actually started into labor, she called to ask how I was and decided herself to come all the way to my house with her toddler and newborn and took Owen for me and said not to worry about him, she would keep him until we came to get him. That was such a total blessing because I started to go downhill soon after that and I wouldn't have known what to do with him.
After the loss, she took all the momentos we received and put together a shadow box for us and did it within about 2 days. I don't know how she did it.
Sorry that was so long.
If you could get someone to watch your little ones for 8 hours, and I mean someone you totally trusted at your house so you didn't worry about them for a second, what would you do?
A denim skirt with fringe on the end. It's from high school, and still fits but I never wear it anymore because it's not very flattering on me. I keep it because I made my husband a bear from Build-A-Bear for his birthday when we were dating, and I made the bear an outfit to match mine. I made a black T-shirt that says, "I love my Geek" (The "love" is actually just a pink heart), and I made a denim skirt that matches mine exactly. I cannot sew at all so I spent forever making that skirt. I wore that outfit on his birthday, so he would know that the bear was supposed to be me. He still has the bear, and I just cannot bring myself to get rid of that skirt (or the shirt for that matter because he bought that for me, but I still occasionally wear that).
Okay, now for my question to someone else... If you could visit anywhere in the world (and not have to worry about the cost), where would you go, and why, and who would you take with you and why?
I would absolutely go to Italy. I have always wanted to go there! I am a big history buff, so I've always wanted to go to Rome and Pompeii. I would also like to go to Venice just because it is so beautiful. I would naturally take my husband because it would be a nice time for us away together in a romantic setting.
If you knew you only had one day left to live, who would you spend it with, and what would you do?

I would like to go to Mexico so I can use some of my very rusty spanish. I think it would be nice to see the places that my mom lived and grew up. And I would take Steve and Aiden...and maybe my mom and dad so that if my rusty spanish sucked my mom could help.
