Of Today's
Married Women®

Mrs. Missouri International®

Adelaida Peterson

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
Perseverance. Its meaning, steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success, truly applies to me and my life. We do not always experience happy or good times. We sometimes encounter challenges, which I believe are designed to make us stronger and better individuals.

2.How would you describe your husband?
I do not have a favorite TV program as I do not watch TV, except to catch up on local and world news.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
I do not think it is the worst but it is something I must work on. The habit of falling asleep on the couch at night, by accident. At the end of the day, I get so tired that I do not make it all the way to the bed.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
Life is not easy for any of us. We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained. Why? Because it is with perseverance that helps me to be stronger, better person.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
My favorite day of the week is Thursday. Because in my 10 years of marriage, every Thursday is having dinner at a restaurant. The kids look forward to it, too. We enjoy eating out as a family.
