Layers Upon Layers

For the month of September, I’m joining a lovely blogger, Jenni @ Story of My Life, for an every day blogging challenge!  Jenni has created some fantastic blogging prompts to guide us through Blogtember.  I’m joining the 300+ other bloggers to make a month of it!!


Today’s prompt asks that you describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.
When I think of where I come from, I think of a game I used to play when I was younger.  I had trouble sleeping as a child.  My mind was constantly going and wouldn’t shut off.  Instead of counting sheep, I made up my own way to fall asleep.  We can call it the layers game.  
It was all about the layers.  The goal was to create as many layers as I could to describe where I was at that exact moment.  I’m going to play a quick round, to give you the hang of it. 
Round 1: (Layer 1) I am Sara.(Layer 2) I am in my room.
(Layer 3) Which is in my house.
(Layer 4) On third street.(Layer 5) In Velma.(Layer 6) In Oklahoma.
By now, you probably get the idea.  As silly as it is, using my imagination to create layers, upon layers, upon layers, actually helped me to fall asleep.  Each night, I would try to created more layers than I had the previous night.  Who knows how far I took it.  
Using the layers game, I’m going to describe where I come from, the people in my life, and factors that make up me.  
Round 2: (1) I am Sara Norton.(2) A sister.(3) In our three-bedroom home.(4) On third street.(5) At the corner of Wildhorse Drive.(6) In Velma.(7) Attending Velma-Alma High School.(8) In Stephens County.(9) In the Chickasaw Nation.(10) In Oklahoma.(11) In the South (?), some say Mid-west.  (12) In the United States.(13) In North America.(14) In the Northern Hemisphere.(15) On planet Earth.(16) In the Milky-Way(17) In the Solar System(18) In the arms of God
Round 3:(1) I am Sara Norton-Sanner.(2) A sister.(3) A wife.(4) In our two-bedroom apartment.(5) On the North-West side.(6) Of Oklahoma City(7) Working for a non-profit(8) Ministering to my community(9) In Oklahoma County(10) In Oklahoma.(11) In the South (?), some say Mid-west.  (12) In the United States.(13) In North America.(14) In the Northern Hemisphere.(15) On planet Earth.(16) In the Milky-Way(17) In the Solar System(18) In the arms of God
