And in This Corner...Sarah Eubanks' Meme ~ Round Two

By
Mortgage and Lending with Hill Valley Financial Services

In this corner, Lisa Heidel.  Weighing in with a love for shoes and a cookbook fetish, Lisa tagged a new acquaintance to find out more on her the "victim".

And in this corner, with one Meme down and who knows how many more to go, we have the victim...Sarah Eubanks, otherwise known as Meme for today!!!

  • About seven years ago, I was in a terrible roll over car accident.  While I broke the second vertebrae in my neck, our son had to be life flighted to a local children's hospital.  It was at that time that I found out I was allergic to morphine.  Boy was that bad news...being strapped down, unable to move, and needing to throw up!  Yuck...Some things you never want to do.  Breaking your neck would be one of those things.  However, it was by the Grace of God I survived and was not paralyzed.  My neurosurgeon called it a "miracle"!
  • I lost my Daddy and a true hero when I was thirty.  He was only 54 and way too young.  I hate cancer and actively campaign against any form of it whenever possible.  For more information on how to donate time or finances, please go to the American Cancer Society website.
  • My family has four members to it.  Our son, Derek, daughter Breana, husband Michael, and myself.  We are so grateful that our daughter looks a lot like me and our son a lot like his Daddy.  If it were the other way around, it would be quite random!  Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think!

                                         Father & Son                   Mother & Daughter

 

  • I grew up in a family business.  My Mom and Dad own Sun Glow, Inc., a local heating and air conditioning business.  They provide great work, superior customer service, andfantastic prices.  I am certain that I got my entrepreneurial spirit from my Dad.  He worked really hard, but always made time for us as a family.  I try to mimic that as much as I can.
  • I was the captain of Centennial High School's dance team in high school and a cheerleader in college at Willamette University.  I am certain that these facts are what make me so flexible even still today.  How many 34 year old peoples can still do the splits, after all??

 

So, there are a few more things about Meme that you probably did not know.  Perhaps you have an idea now as to why I am the way that I am.  Why I am who I am.  Why I believe what I believe.  That is, after all, part of what this Meme thing is all about, right??

 

 

For my part to keep this chain going, I hereby choose to invite the following into the ring with Meme:

  1. Andrew Trevino ~  This man I know little about, with the exception that my trusted friend, Mr. Alexander Harb thinks highly of him.  I am looking forward to forming my own opinion!  :) 
  2. Jeannie Kontis ~  A strong woman (like myself), I must say I am eager to learn new things about her!  Have fun with it Jeannie.   :)
  3. Jennifer Bukaty ~ I know that she recently did a book Meme, but as a fascinating person, she has so much to share with us.  And, Jennifer, I do promise I will get my Book Meme done.  I have the books, but writing the blog as beautifully as you did proves to be a challenge.  One that I am up for, but time consuming nonetheless.  :)

Thanks, Lisa, for bringing me out of my box.  I am normally such a quiet girl (wink, wink)...

 

Happy Christmas Everyone!

HI Sarah,

WOW! Nice to learn more about you, I kinda had a feeling you were a cheerleader. You have a wonderful upbeat personality that shines right through in your writing. I think its pretty cool that we both have a son named Derek!!! :)

Sarah, what a remarkable story you have to tell!  I'm so glad everything turned out okay for all of you.  And it sounds like your best friend is a Godsend to take care of you like that! 

Okay -- I'm off to work on my Meme.  I was worried that I didn't know what to write - but I think I might have a book half done instead!

Sarah,

Thanks. It is icky losing a parent at a young age, but sometimes we have no control over what life dishes out to us...only how we choose to handle it. If life was easy and we had no challenges, we would be boring people  :)

Cheryl ~  Very true.  In my college philosophy class, we decided in conversation that if we only had good, we would have no reference for how great good really was!  Plus, if we allow those hard moments to be teaching moments (or days, or weeks, months, years, etc.), we will be much better off and infinitely stronger!  :)

Sarah,

I just listed your second meme in my alphabetical meme list.  Thanks for letting me know.

Splits?  I could never do them, then again, I never wanted to! ;)

Take care,

Lucky :)

Very impressive to still be able to do the splits! Never have been able to do them and even thought I was short and people tried to get me in to gymnastics when I was young that was one thing that I could never do. Balance beam, cart wheels and that kind of stuff no problem. Splits just weren't in me despite coaches trying. I quit gymnastics at the ripe old age of 6, just didn't enjoy it! Baseball, that was what I enjoyed!

Todd...

I suspected that you were a baseball fan!  :)  What position did you play?  I was never good at softball.  I think I caught a pop fly once and it was so unusual that we went out for ice cream at the DQ in Welches.  That was where the game was...

I guess we cannot all be good at the splits...or baseball!  :)  Hope you are doing well and as always, good to hear from you!
