1. Do you have a go to song that always puts you in a good mood?
Cheery Christmas music. Any time of year.
My fellow employees have checked on me when it’s the middle of April and “It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas” is streaming from my speakers.
Christmas music is my quick stress reliever, pick me up, and any other time I need to calm down from the real world.
2. Are you a real Christmas tree kinda person or do you go with a real fake one?
This question makes me sad-ish. (Is too a word!)
I have artificial Christmas trees. But I also have a tree in almost every room in my house. (See why here.) Having said that, I would love to have a real Christmas tree. But the sad truth is I can’t breathe with one.
Asthma has its downers. I literally can not breath. I can’t even go near a real Christmas wreath without feeling like my lungs are wrapped in saran wrap…in an oven.
My husband wanted one – just for our first Christmas together. Until we went to a Christmas party hosted at one of our friends. We were barely two feet in the door when my lungs started protesting. A lot. My husband gave me a look. Barely married six months, he never saw an asthma attack. He did that night. What an eye-opener. For both of us. For him, he didn’t think I was going to survive. For me, it was the first time I saw just how much he could be freaked out by my lack of oxygen.
So yeah, no real trees in this house. Ever. And with two boys with the same hereditary lack of lung power – that would be doubly never.
3. What are you thankful for?
Family. Friends. Health. Home. Work. Is there really an end to my list? I think not.
I am so very thankful for the blessings the Lord has bestowed upon my life.
From my daughter’s medical condition – which is decreasing – to my promotion at work, not to mention a newer, better job for my husband, I am thankful for my faith. Thankful that regardless of what may come, my Lord has my back – even if He has to carry me Himself.
