April 18, 2014 – Is this really you?


April 18, 2014  – Unknown caller.  You receive a call from an unexpected person. Who is it, and what is the conversation about? Go!

“Hi there, I was wondering if there are any pointers you can give me, or any suggestions you may have to help me lead a better life?”

“Who is this?”

“It’s me, Monique. I’m ten and I have the opportunity to live your life all over again. Only this time I get to talk to you about all of the things you know and what you would do differently!”

“Oh dear child, how much time do we have to chat?”

“Not long, so tell me three things that I should know about myself as I grow up”

“Well, I think you should know they have a product that you can put on your hair now so you won’t have to wear those curls forever!”

“People are not always what or who they appear to be. It is not your job to make others happy. Find happiness within yourself and others around you will be happy.”

“…and try to find God and make him a priority in your life now. Don’t wait until you are in your thirties. The earlier you trust God, the better your life will be.”

“Awesome! Thanks!”

Have a blessed day :-)

April 13, 2014 – $5 Million !!!



April 13, 2014  – Charitable.  You’ve inherited $5 million, with instructions that you must give it all away — but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?

Without hesitation, I would give 1/2 to my church and the other 1/2 to the SPCA. I love God and I love animals and would do all I can to help them both!

Have a blessed day :-)

April 11, 2014 – Read This!


April 11, 2014  – Press it.  Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.

It seems like I just did this a few days ago, but here I go again, this time showing some love to a few others:

Capture You Photography – amazing artist and photographer
Arl’s World - just a mish-mash of goodness
Sabethville - an awesome and humbled writer that makes you put your thinking cap on.

Have a blessed day :-)

April 10, 2014 – Admitting I’m not Perfect

thApril 10, 2014  – Imperfection.  Imperfections — in things, in people, in places — add character to life. Tell us about an imperfection that you cherish.

If I choose to tell you about an imperfection that I cherish, does this mean that I am admitting that I am not perfect? Okay already!  I am far from perfect.   I have many imperfections and can’t say that I “cherish” any of them.   I guess the fact that I don’t worry much comes to mind.   But because I don’t worry sometimes it is perceived as though I don’t care.   And I do care, I just don’t care if you care that I care.

As for other’s imperfections, I think it is awesome when you can laugh at yourself.   I’m not sure if that is considered an imperfection, but it definitely adds character to life.

Have a blessed day :-)

April 9, 2014 – Perfected Already

first_times_a_charmApril 9, 2014  – Do-over.  Go back to a blog post you always thought could be better, or were unsatisfied with — now, fix it.

When I decided to accept this challenge, I knew that it would be a difficult one and very time consuming.    I knew in the beginning I would do this only once.   And I knew that I would limit my daily entries to 100 words or less.  For the most part I have done that.

So really, I don’t have any need or desire to redo any of my posts. Does that make me conceited? or confident?  or just careless?

Have a blessed day :-)


Let's see if I can do this ……
