I've been Tagged--Second try!

I've been tagged by Cindy, Letters from Midlife, to post 7 things that people may not know about me. My real life friends probably know most of these, but my blogger friends probably don't.

There are some rules with this tag:
  • I need to link to the person that tagged me.
  • I need to share 7 things people may not know about me.
  • I need to tag 7 people to share 7 things and link to them.
  • I need to let them know they've been tagged.

Here are my 7 things:

1) I was married to my first husband for 27 years. We had 2 children. My son is 34 y/o; my daughter passed away at age 28 from carbon monoxide poisoning (a generator in her apartment.) My husband died of a heart attack in 1999.

2) I met my current husband on the internet--well, not really. We had known each other for over 30 years. His wife and I used to instant message, and about 8 months after she died, he sent me an e-mail. I was in Oklahoma and he was in Indiana.

3) I, like Cindy, like to sing out loud in the car along with my CD's. I harmonize with people like George Bev Shea, and pretend I'm an accomplished musician!

) I was a missionary in Haiti for almost 2 years in 1 970-71. I was still single at that time. My current husband and his wife were in Haiti at the same time I was.

5) I am a wanna-be chritian fiction writer. Since starting this blog, I realize I am not really a great writer. I do write poems, and recently posted one on my blog--Choices.

6) I like to scrapbook. I started scrapbooking in 2000; I had taken a trip to Israel and wanted a nice way to preserve my pictures. It lets me tap into my creative side.

7) I like to read christian fiction, romance and mysteries. Some of my favorite authors are Karen Kingsbury, Terri Blackstock, and Kristen Heitzmann.

I want to tag the following people:

Gina at Gina's World

Joan at More God=less me.

Jan at Just wandering: as I wonder..

Dee at One foot out of the box

Kristen at Over the Backyard Fence

Becky at Just my Thoughts

Lynn at Proverbial Pilgrimage

I am going to try to post this with the appropriate links. It still doesn't seem to be working--I must need further instruction. (If my sister, Brenda, sees this she may come to my rescue and either tell me what I'm doing wrong, or fix it for me; sisters are great!)

Thank you so much for the link love. I'm still working on the last one you tagged with with. So maybe I'll get a bunch together and make one post.

You and I have a lot in common. I like many of the same things.

I enjoyed reading your list. Thanks for doing this. I learned some things about you I didn't know!

It was one of those little annoying things. You had http:// twice. I just went through and eliminated one of the repeats from each link and everything worked fine. Maybe someone else is having the same problem and this may help them. You are a quick study. You'll get it next time.
