Dear Irma,
I love your lists! And we are really sisters that didn't know it--- were you kidnapped as a baby and moved across the boarder? (I was born in upstate NY and lived outside of Buffalo my growing up years- that explains so much about me ;)!!!
Anyway- books, your #1 and #2 would be mine also- I go on from there a little different direction- Stephen Kings early stuff would be in my favorates. (not so much now, at all)
I would love to visit Russia- The summer and winter palaces - The great wall is so neat- I think I was still in shock as I visited there- I would love to go back to Europe- And would love to visit your #4,6,7,(NOT 8) tooo cold! and #9.
COFFEE- all the time, all day LOVE coffee-
Jobs that I have had- your #3,4 and 6.
I dislike ice cream and pizza- I know, I am not human.
All 5 of your favorites would be mine also- So, I copycat thats what sisters do...
Your mood lifters and your reasons to get out of bed are great!!
So, there is a bit about Pamela Dawn!
Our fingerprint day went really well- I am so thankful that it is over and we are now done! It is all up to the governments- OH what a scarey thought! but, there is nothing that I can do to make this happen any faster, except pray.
It would be an act of God for us to really be able to bring the kids home by Christmas, but, we sure want too. So may good reasons, but it is up to God. Thankyou for your prayers about all of this. ;) Pam
