Nancy is one of those serendipitous Facebook finds. We are friends of friends, acquainted through Karen since the late-80s. The larger part of my knowledge of her comes from Karen’s great love for her. That she inspires loyalty, admiration, love, and decades-long friendship speaks volumes.
We reconnected on each others walls, and I always look forward to what Nancy has to say. She deals with life with a sense of humor and optimism. And as I am typing all this with her picture, I keep getting distracted, thinking, “And she has the cutest cheeks in the world!” She does. Look! Cutest cheeks ever.
Name: Nancy Blum
Age Range: smack dab in the middle of the ’40’s
Preferred Job Title: “Chief” (a/k/a Legal Secretary/Assistant)
Describe my family: I’m part of a great big dysfunctional family. I know both my birth and adoptive families. My babies consist of my fur babies, Tigger and Babaloo.
What does the first hout of your day look like? I have a nasty habit of starting my morning as late as possible. I have a tendency to hit the snooze button at least a couple of time before I drag my rear end out of bed, throw my desginated outfit on, brush my teeth, and hit the road.
the last hour? Relaxing in the recliner, playing on the computer, watching TV and/or cuddling with my babies. Throw in the shower right before bedtime, and viola! A perfect evening.
What makes you feel successful? Seeing my other “babies” (a/k/a the kids I babysat growing up) on FB making their marks on life, growing up and having their own babies. I love knowing that I was part of their lives growing up. Making my way through life, good and bad, on my own and fixing my messes myself.
What brings you joy? Laughter, my friends and family, my animals, children.
What women do you admire? Of course, my momma. All of my girlfriends, for their strength and determination and the fact they love me, warts and all.
What do you like best about your closest friend? She loves me and treats me like her own sister. She holds me accountable, but always with love.
What do you like best about yourself? I would have to say my sense of humor (I’m a born and bred smart alek)
What advise would you give boys about girls? Don’t judge a book by its cover. Beauty is more than facial. True beauty is shown from within
How do you overcome adversity? Lots of prayer (and usually some tears along the way).
How do you want to be remembered? I hope I’m remembered as a sweet sensitive daughter, aunt, granddaughter who loved well, laughed a lot and lived even better. I want to be remembered as a child of God.
