WORLD EVENTS OF 1995:

Oklahoma City bombing

OJ Simpson's trial

Americans greeted on Mir

President Bill Clinton in office

FAMILY EVENTS OF 1995:

My family almost died of carbon monoxide from a furnace leak while I was away at college.

My family was doubling the size of the house to accomodate the 10 of us along with making things handicap accessible for my newly adopted brother.

A week after my family broke ground for the house addition, my newly adopted brother passed away from chickenpox.(he was handicapped and had a severe case of chickenpox they even were on his lungs as well as on his skin.)

My mother had hand surgery.

I graduated from college and my youngest sister graduated from high school.

I got married to the most understanding, handsome, Godly, loving man I know!!!

Today is my 13th Anniversary!
