This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!
Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story. Well, I suppose it wasn’t a “distance” event in terms of how that term is usually used. But in March 2015, I took part in the 2nd Annual Worldwide EndoMarch in Washington D.C., an event that also occurred on the same day in dozens of cities throughout the world. This event raises awareness for endometriosis, a painful condition which affects 1 in 10 women worldwide, which I happen to suffer from. The march itself is fairly short, given the degree of pain many of the women are in. I haven’t been able to participate the past two years for other health reasons, but the one time I went was amazing! I did not know the ladies I’m pictured with below before the march, but we found each other as members of our home state and marched together!
Name one thing not many people know about you. Wearing awareness gear for my chronic illnesses makes me feel better about myself.
What is your favorite flower? I know it’s cliche, but roses! ?? I have no idea why. I especially love yellow roses, though. My husband always makes sure there’s a vase of roses for me on the dining room table.
Things I want to have in my home (paintings, hot tubs, book cases, big screen tv etc) As many book cases as can possibly fit. With plenty of books to fill the shelves with, of course.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m grateful that I got five loads of laundry done on Saturday. But I paid for it dearly yesterday, flaring like mad and spending 18 hours in bed.
I’m looking forward to another week of absolutely no responsibilities. And it’s Holy Week! Praise the Lord! ??
