Fill in the blank: The best thing about where I live is: ___________________
Well, I can walk to church and, if I had to, could walk to nearly any place I want to in town. We are so close to things including a big city and mountains and an ocean. Hard to beat but, it can also work against you. We are pretty crowded in my neck of the woods.
Create a new name for a deodorant (like “Flower Fresh” or “Shower Scent”).
How about "Ahhh….That’s Better!"
What was the last piece of software you installed onto your computer?
Verizon Security Suite
If you were to receive a superlative award today beginning with the words ”Most likely to…”, what would the rest of the phrase say?
…melt into a gelatinous mass as soon as I sit down for the night (it has been one of those weeks!).
What two colors do you like to wear together?
Ideally, I really like aqua or teal and lavender together. Also, some oranges with red. There are so many combinations and, being a winter (don’t tell me you have never been color analyzed!), I tend to be able to wear jewel tones.
Now, wasn’t that fun? I thank Amy for always having something for me to steal on Thursdays and Fridays!
My father-in-law and mother-in-law went away for a couple of days and he is now in the hospital. Himself had to drive the two plus hours to be with them. Sal, my f-i-l is 92 years old and has chronic congestive heart failure (his heart just won’t pump well enough to keep the fluids from settling in around it). Truth be told, I don’t know how to ask you all to pray because he has lived such a long life. However, after surviving three cancers, open heart surgery and many other ills, he keeps bouncing back! One day, though, that won’t be the case. We all have numbered days.
I don’t think having numbered days really hits most people who aren’t elderly. We constantly put things off that could improve the days we have left. Doctor’s appointments which could explain that mysterious pain we have had for a year, finally throwing away our clutter, visiting that neighbor we’ve been meaning to drop in on who seems to need some company.
A couple of years ago I thought often of a high school friend. Some time during college, we lost touch with each other just because our lives took different paths. Finally, after about a year of thinking about her, I googled her name to try to hook up. And found her obituary. I was able to contact her mom and was happy for that but still, had I looked her up sooner, I might have been able to be a part of her life that last year or so. I cried for days. (I miss you, Melanie.)
Is there something you have been putting off that could possibly make your life more positive? For myself, it is the dreaded colonoscopy and mammogram (yes, mother, I know). Also, making a life plan, where I want to be in ten years, Lord willing.
Here’s hoping you all have a great weekend and happy Father’s Day to the guys who visit – whether you are a dad or have/had one! Blessings, g
