Ten Small Confessions

This idea for today comes from Jeanette at Audience of ONE. She encouraged us to try it. Thanks Jeanette. This was so much fun, I could easily have done ten more. Maybe I'll do some others in a few months. I want to thank God for all the memories it stirred up, good and bad. Now for the confessions. See if any of them surprised you.

1. On my wedding day, I quit smoking - "cold turkey."

2. I got "yelled at" for taking a picture of "The Nightwatch" in a museum in Amsterdam.

3. Once, I broke through the ice and fell in.

4. There was a time when I was great at playing jacks, doing the hula hoop, and jumping on the pogo stick.

5. When I was in the sixth grade, I memorized The Gettysburg Address and I can still say it (with a few fumbles.)

6. When we were kids, my neighbor and I called up a store and told them our dog was coming to pick up a package.

7. I once marched in a parade in N.Y.C. against the Nuclear bomb.

8. I love black licorice and tapioca.

9. My second son's birth weight was 9 lbs., 3 oz. and that was way back in l979. He was a Keeper.

10. I have three handwritings: slanted to the right, straight up and down, and illegible.

There, now you know me better and I had some fun. Love to all of you. Nancy


  1. Oh my gosh! Those are awesome. I love that you quit cold turkey. And wow, LOL, you must have a mischeivous streak in you. :-)

  2. Hi Nancy -

    What a fun list! I did well with the hula hoop, but not the other items. I was more of a jump rope/roller skating/doll kid.

    Susan :)

  3. You did some cool things! My daughter got in trouble when we were in Paris for taking a picture at a museum too!

  4. Love your list! Super fun.

    I'm having a Cupid Shot Me day at my blog if you want to join in. :O)


  5. Great list! Thank you for all your sweet comments on arise 2 write. Much love, hugs, and prayers,

  6. Hi Nancy,

    Congrats on quitting smoking. And WOW, you fell through the ice and lived to tell about it? Amazing. God obviously had other plans for you. :)

  7. Oh, these made me laugh! You bad girl, you!

  8. Hey, that was so much fun. Thanks Nancy!!


  9. Sitka is very adorable. Thank you for the award. That was very nice of you.
