This week’s statements: 1. Growing up, I was the only one in my family who was spoiled rotten. I was the youngest of eight children, with 5 older sisters. I always said I had 6 mothers. 2. On a typical morning, before I leave the house, I read, blog, and eat my breakfast. 3. No matter how hard I try, I am still afraid of snakes and lightening. 4. A smile is the first thing I notice about people.
