Cherie asked a lot of good questions, and I especially appreciated having the opportunity to answer one
about who my hero is:
My mother is my hero. I am the youngest of seven, my father had a heart attack and died at home a week after my third birthday. Flo had not graduated from high school and worked to get her GED degree and then held a job as an office clerk until she was 70 in order to raise us on her own. The heroic part is that she never complained to us about her lot in life. She took naps when she could, though, always telling us she was “just resting her eyes.” I follow her lead: naps are good when you can get ‘em!
You can link to Cherie’s blog to read the entire interview. Cherie was thorough –she even asked me what my favorite color is, and I know you Safe & Sound blog readers are just itching to find out.
Thanks for all the attention, Cheri– you make me feel like a celebrity!
