I have been tagged

Abbie has tagged me

Here are the rules:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player tags 5 people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago:
Ten years ago was 1998. Busy coaching my kids' soccer teams. I was on the Masters Swim Team and competed in Buffalo, New York. I also did some road cycling especially was in Tour of the Scioto River Valley ( TOSRV) This is a 200+ mile tour makes the annual pilgrimage from Columbus, Ohio to Portsmouth, Ohio (near Kentucky) and back each May on Mother's Day weekend. After diagnosed with MS on April 22, 2002, I stopped road cycling since my legs could not do them anymore.

Ok, Jim, although ALL of these questions about me are already on my blog...and I have said "no time" to other taggers; so now I must do theirs too. I will do both, but I have to get the time---so be patient.

I like what you said : "I would like to feel the sense of blogging community of getting to know one another other than blogging about issues. Its nice to get to know my fellow blogger a little more."

Thanks for sharing so much about you. It's nice getting to know you better. I am so glad to get to know you and so many others through our blogs. I too enjoy not just reading about various issues but getting to know each other as friends. Isn't it wonderful to "meet" through this way though we may never meet on this earth!

What I enjoy the most is reading about various Christian bloggers' walk with God and how the Lord Jesus Christ is precious to each one. I appreciate that very much each time I read your sharing on your Bible readings and your walk with God. May God bless and keep you and family near to Him always. We serve a great God! God bless.
