1. Who would you most like to meet (dead or alive) and why?
I would have loved to have met my paternal grandfather – he was Korean. My grandparents divorced and I only got a chance to meet my paternal grandmother that has been deceased for a few years. I saw her a few times on trips to Nicaragua. She was such a strong lady, so creative, so loving. As I grew up, either I was teased at school or was nicknamed for my Asian facial features, specifically my eyes. As time went by and now as an adult, we finally were told about my paternal grandfathers side of the family. It was such an amazing feeling knowing that even if only to have his Korean features – I’m happy to know something of him lives in me. My children also have my facial features and it just reminds me of how far our blood line goes – incredible!
2. Who is your favorite author?
3. What is one thing you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?
In my lifetime, to know that I’ve done a good job raising the children God has sent to me. I try to raise them to best of my abilities and pray that I can continue to lead them on the path to knowing the Lord as their one and only true Father. As my life will not last forever, but the love of Christ will live in their hearts forever.
4. What is your biggest regret?
Regret, I try not to look back at my life with regret. However, there are a few events, heartbreaks, friendships that I would have liked to have gone differently, maybe have been more honest. I would have wanted myself to have been stronger and able to have been willing to speak on what was in my heart, things have remained left unsaid – on my behalf. Isn’t that unfortunate, when you didn’t speak on something and would have liked to?! Ugh!
5. What is one thing you could start doing to make a difference in someone’s life?
Aside from living with chronic pain and spending most of my days on edge due to the pain. I try not to be snappy or disrespectful to people. I try but if you come to me with some nonsense about life’s hardships, to me – I apologize in advance for my lack of interest. It’s hard to want to make a difference in someones else’s life when I’m barely making a difference in my own. I do want to make a difference through this outlet – my blog. And outside of this outlet, I try to be a good ear to whomever needs one, be a good listener – not always a talker. Again, living with chronic pain on a daily basis can get in the way of trying to be a ‘good’ friend by societies standards, but I try my best. If I think of you, I try to reach out and take advantage of that moment and send a text or anything to let you know, I’m thinking of you. I can definitely start wanting to build stronger, better friendships.
