December 21, 2014 – God First … Always

untitledDecember 21, 2014 – My number one. Who is the most important person in your life? Describe that person in as great a detail as you can muster and most importantly, tell us why you cherish this person.

I know this post is asking me to chose a mortal being.   I cannot chose any one person to be the most important person in my life. We all need and cherish different people for different reasons.  Now, the person I would be most lost without is my husband, because we do so much together and he is truly my best friend.   His unconditional love is most amazing !

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 20, 2014 – Why Should I Forgive You?

imagesO0RDBDUKDecember 20, 2014 – Forgive and forget? Share a story where it was very difficult for you to forgive the perpetrator for wronging you, but you did it — you forgave them.

It took a long time for me to forgive the woman (women) who slept with my ex-husband; and even longer for me to forgive him.  It did not happen overnight, but the moment I forgave I was able to move on with my life.   And my life today has never been happier.

Having said that, there are some people in my life I have not forgiven and will probably never forgive.   The negative impact they have had on my life can  never be forgotten, perhaps because I cannot forgive.

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 19, 2014 – My Husband

untitledDecember 19, 2014 – A random act of kindness. Tell us about the time when you performed a secret random act of kindness — where the recipient of your kindness never found out about your good deed. How did the deed go down?

I am going to give credit for this one to my husband.  Every year at our church we set up a store of gifts donated from the congregation.   The kids get to come in and “shop” for their parents and the parents get to come in a “shop” for the kids.

One year, we helped with distribution and was assigned a family.   After all of the shopping was done, the family was leaving the church and my husband gave the child and envelope and asked him to give it to his Dad.  The envelope had a $100.00 bill in it.

We never saw the family again, but I am sure they had a nice Christmas!

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 18, 2014 – Setting Priorities

imagesVT521ZA1December 18, 2014 –  Mad as a hatter. Tell us about a time when you flew into a rage. What is it that made you so incredibly angry?

I am so sick of people not having priorities and being late for everything.   You know who you are.   You know your good qualities and your downfalls.   Account for them.   Show up.

Throws me into a rage ….. Everytime.

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 17, 2014 – Backstabber!

imagesO3SZY3S8December 17, 2014 –  You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. What is your least favorite personal quality in others? Extra points for sharing your least favorite personal quality in yourself.

I hate it when a person has to be everyone’s best friend.   The are the best friend to whoever they are talking to at the moment – and talking shit to you about everyone else.   It took me a long time to recognize people like this, but now I can pick them out of a crowd.   They are those people that you tell a “secret” to because you know they will spread the word.  It kind of makes me chuckle now.

My worst quality – I have a bad habit of telling people how they feel.  But I only do that because I know everything.  (wink-wink)

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 15, 2014 – Happy 4th of July!

untitledDecember 15, 2014 –  Memories of holidays past. What is your very favorite holiday? Recount the specific memory or memories that have made that holiday special to you.

For some reason, I suppress a lot of memories.   I don’t think that I had a bad childhood so to speak, but I do not remember a lot of things about my past, even when someone says “Remember when ….” I have a hard time recalling what they are talking about.  If anyone knows, or thinks they may know, why I do this, I welcome your comments.

As for the Holidays, I love 4th of July.   Not really for what it represents, but because I love the heat and the fireworks after dark.  I think it is a really romantic holiday!

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 14, 2014 – Me Day?

imagesDecember 14, 2014 –  Festivus for the rest of us. You have been named supreme ruler of the universe. Your first order of business is creating and instituting a holiday or festival in your honor. What day of the year is your holiday? What special events will take place? Describe YOU DAY in as great a detail as you can muster: the special foods we’ll consume, the decorations we’ll use…everything.

Every Day – Is Me Day!

I won’t bore you with the details!

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 13, 2014 – Not Today …

imagesDecember 13, 2014 –  Necessity is the mother of invention.  Imagine, in great detail, an invention that could help reverse pollution — describe for us how your invention works and how it will help save the planet.

I don’t know.  I’m not feeling this.  Perhaps because there is no way to reverse pollution.  It would take a world full of people agreeing on one thing – and that will never happen.

Have a blessed day! :-)

December 12, 2014 – Rescued!

wpid-2013-01-11-07.35.06.png.pngDecember 12, 2014 –  Daring do. Tell us about the time you rescued someone else (person or animal) from a dangerous situation. What happened? How did you prevail?

I am no hero.   This little guy I got from the SPCA though.   He was part of my life for more than 10 years and was the best pet anyone could ever have.   He saw me through some rough times.    I miss Clifford!

Have a blessed day! :-)

Let's see if I can do this ……
