About Lynnette

Q&A

What is your idea of happiness?
Happiness is seeing everyone in my family (including myself) healthy and getting to enjoy life: it’s shared moments, eating good food, traveling and creating memories. Happiness is when you can wake up in the morning and feel grateful for another day.
When and where were you happiest?
I am happiest when I am with my family and friends, creating memories. Time well spent with them are happiest and it doesn’t matter where.
What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is the recurrence of cancer. And spiders.
Who are your heroes in real life?
My husband and daughter, who had been my rock and strength during the time I had my journey. They held it all together for me.
What do you most value in your friends?
A caring and nurturing heart. I was disappointed with the so-called close friends who did not come through or make an effort to visit me during the times I needed some caring. I discovered those who have innate caring and nurturing hearts in them, even if we haven’t talked or seen each other in ages, would surprise me with a visit!
Which talent would you most like to have?
Creativity. I can be creative, but I need a little more push. Oh, and PATIENCE. I would love to have that virtue (or talent, because it IS a talent).
What is your current state of mind?
Happy at the moment, but I feel like I need to do more things: spend time with family and friends, travel, explore, take more photos, and meet someone famous.
What is your most treasured possession?
My family, including our dog, Fred.
How do you most like spending your time?
Reading a good book, taking pictures of just about anything and sleeping (I work the night shift).
What do you most dislike?
Shallow answer, but this really is my biggest pet peeve: drivers who do not use their turn signals! It was created for a reason?! Use IT!!! We cannot always anticipate what you are going to do (to those drivers who don’t use the turn signals).
