Truth : What do you fear the most?
I don’t want to answer this question. To be completely honest, I have a few fears. Ok, maybe more than a few.
The question is ‘What do you fear the most?” I’ll narrow it down to my Top Two.
1. When someone, mostly my children, choke on something they are eating. My fears have been brought to the surface more than once. When I was 5 years old, I was choking on a hot dog & my Uncle Donald saved my life when he gave me the Heimlich! Thanks Uncle Donald. Greg had to give our son, Tygar, the Heimlich a few times. And Tygar’s 1st grade teacher saved his life when he was choking on a peppermint candy at school. As my children get older, this fear has not been as prominent. But I have to admit, whenever my kids are eating grapes, my heart involuntarily skips a beat.
2. Heaven freaks me out. I will wake up out of a deep sleep & heaven will be on my mind & the fact that I will live FOREVER overwhelms me for a brief moment & I have to get out of bed & walk around to calm myself down. It never happens in the middle of the day. Only at night. I know it’s silly. I am a Christian & I trust God & have faith & know that I should be longingly looking forward to heaven. I am. 99% of the time.
Now for some fun – go to YouTube & search “Ellen Scare Videos”. My favorite ones are Andy & Amy’s Haunted House videos – hilarious!
From now on, all I need to say to myself when the fear creeps in is, “Stop it! Stop it now!”
I’m generally an adrenaline junkie and will try most anything at least once. I don’t want this to sound arrogant, but I’m not afraid of too many things… but there is one thing that I’m deathly afraid of…
When I was little (maybe 8-9 years old) my “friends” rolled me up tightly in an area rug and then sat on me for like 10 minutes. I couldn’t move my arms, or legs, and it was difficult to breathe.
Let just say there were a few of my “friends” bleeding when I was done “freaking out” on them after they let me out. ** My anger management classes have helped out a lot since then 🙂 **
BUT DON’T ROLL ME UP IN AN AREA RUG
… there will be blood!
