Section 6 - 6 Questions

1.  What can you do today that you could not do a year ago?

I can say that I am married!

2.  Can love last a lifetime?

Love can and does last a lifetime for friends, family, children...and I would venture to say romantic love can as well. I have deep connections will almost all of my romantic love interests from the past who got an "I love you" from me. My love for them may have changed, but love in the broadest sense still exists.

3. Would you rather lose all of your memories or never be able to make new ones?

Considering my mother has dementia, one of my greatest fears, and that I have blocked a lot of my childhood memories out, I try not to be attached to old memories.  I think I would rather lose memories and be able to make new ones - since I exist in the here and now. 

4.  Describe a "character" of a person from your childhood. 

I don't know that I entirely understand what this question wants me to do so I will describe a character trait - I had a religious school teacher named Eileen. The character trait I much appreciated in her was her Loving Kindness: חסד – Chesed.  Eileen saw that I was a lost child, and that I had a rough family life. She reached out to me, over and over, visited me at home, took me places, and made a place for me. She was an adult I could rely on, who was full of patience and kindness. Her chesed made a huge difference in my life.

5.  If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try out?

I would like to be a private detective or a person on the force who take a look at unsolved cases with a fresh eye!

6.  What is the best prank you have ever pulled?

The best prank I ever pulled was on my oldest daughter, Alia. Nevi and I found a bus id of a local student at U City high in the street by our house. Treyvon Johnson. We told Alia we found it in her room, and I asked if she was sneaking people into her room. We kept this up for many days, asking how it got in her room if she wasn't sneaking people in when we were asleep. After all, we never saw her have any friends over. Finally, we had to pull the plug on the joke. We still tease her about it today, mainly because we were almost getting a fake confessions out of her because she didn't know how it got in there! Poor dear! We returned the id to the school, and hopefully Treyvon had no issues using the bus!
