Q: You are often referred to as “Our Fearless Leader.” Honestly, what is your greatest fear?
A: My greatest fear…well, believe it or not, I have a few and they all involve my daughters. But, I would have to say that the greatest of them all is something happening to them and me not being there to hold their hands, kiss their brows and tell them, as I constantly do, how much I love them. Because I was present when God lent those Angels to me, it would cripple me if I wasn’t given the opportunity to say goodbye when he called them home.
Q: WOW! Nonnie that was so beautiful and powerful but how can you carry the weight of that around each day? It has to be a really heavy cross to bear.
A: It is extremely heavy, Rhani. I know I often speak on letting go, and letting God as well as those God jobs I talk about. In my head, I know that my fears are God jobs, but when it comes to my daughters, my heart doesn’t know how to take my own advice.
Q: Does your husband have the same fears as you do about your children?
A: OK, now I’m going to make you all laugh here…my husband is a Pastor! Yes, I said it, believe it or not, I’m a Pastor’s wife! OK, now that all the laughter has subsided, I will have to say that I’m sure he has his fears about his daughters, they are his world, as well. But, my husband has a faith so strong that he does what he should do…he sits, he is still, and he lets God do his job. He’s smart enough to know, that is all that he can do, because none of it is in his power to change the course of any path God has laid out for our darlings. And you all thought I was the smart one. Well, what he feels hasn’t registered in my heart yet.
Q: We’re going to have to lighten things up a bit here. I didn’t know we were going to go down such a serious path with those questions, but Nonnie, thank you so much for opening up the way you did. Random question time: What is the one thing you did today that you truly regret?
A: I ate two blueberry muffins from Panera Bread, when I should have eaten none!
Q: Random question #2: I know we don’t wake up looking for trouble, but what is the one thing you think you might do today that you will regret tomorrow?
A: I’m going to eat that little slice of cake that will come inside the fish dinner that I’m going to get from the church later, because it’s Lent and the Catholics eat fish on Friday during Lent (I guess). And no, I’m not Catholic…I just pretend to be during Lent so I can eat their fish!
