Because I've run into a dry spell,
not knowing what to share on my blog,
not knowing what to share on my blog,
I'm using this idea from Ginny's Blog! THANKS!!!
Here goes - whatever word comes to mind first........
A - Amber - have a beautiful amber necklace as a keepsake from my aunt.
B - Brigitte - is really my first name. Because the kids in Junior High School made fun of my name calling me Brigitte Bardot, Bridge and Bird-s**t, I decided to use my second given name.
My favorite coffee mug!!
C - Coffee - stopped drinking coffee for about 10 years and then one day just started up again. Enjoying our Keurig coffee-maker and having a morning latte with vanilla sugar and cinnamon.
D - Dresses - grew up wearing only dresses, suits, skirts and sweaters and never slacks or jeans. Nowadays, I'll be happy if I never have to wear a dress again. Love the informal, casual look. Comfort is where it's at!
E - Excellence - doing the very best with the skills and gifts I've been given - no perfection here. If something is worth doing, it is worth doing well.
F - Faith - Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and His gift of faith to me is growing, especially in the valleys and challenges of life. Follow only a leader I trust.
Miss my bleeding heart - had white and pink!
G - Gardens - I miss all the gardens I've had in the various homes we've owned over the years! Fortunately for us, the apartment we moved to in November, has a beautiful courtyard and the residents are welcome to participate in the gardening.
H - Hymns - love, love, love the old hymns. When I'm close to drawing my last breath here on earth, please sit at my bedside and sing hymns.
I - Internet - is my favorite pastime - reading blogs and researching topics of interest.
J - Job - love mine and have been working for the same organization for over 25 years.
K - Kentucky - spent hubby's sabbatical year and a half in Louisville and loved every minute of it.
L - Love - my heart's desire is to show God's love to all I meet - He's still working on me!!!
M - Mountains - so glad we live close enough to the Canadian Rockies to travel there for a week-end. Haven't done that in a while. Hmmmmm........
N - Natural - enjoy people who are genuine, natural, no-nonsense, and nurturing.
O - Organized - I've always been one to have a place for everything and everything in its place. Simplifies life and saves so much time. Good thing hubby is on the same page!
P - Prayer - am going through a time of a dry desert in my own prayers, but so appreciate that others are praying us through.
Q - Quiet - after a full day of either work or other activities, I'm thankful for solitude and quietness!
R - Reserved - can often be misunderstood as a personality trait - I don't feel the need to enter every conversation.
S - Sensitive yet sensible - do not like conflict but will speak my mind; sensitive to the feeling of others; S - can also stand for silliness - which I enjoy - especially with the grandkids!
T - Travel - so thankful for all the places we've been - Europe, Israel, and many States in the US.
U - Understanding and helpful and still working to being more understanding of people
V - Values - well-developed value system - faith, family, friends, honesty, loyalty, respect, gratitude.
W - Winnipeg - place where I grew up after immigrating from Germany. Awesome memories!
X - Xylophone - I know how to spell that!!! This ABC project hasn't been as easy as one may think! I've also had a number of X-rays in my life.
Y - Young - in my thoughts and attitude. Don't ever want to become like one of our residents who sits in her chair and moans, "Why me, why me!" Y, Y, Y!!! It's so hard on the family as none of them knows why mom does this - poor darling!
Last October, after a 10 hour drive north to visit family,
hubby and I conked out on their couch for a nap before supper!
Z - Zzzzzzzzzz - I'm sure you probably fell asleep by now! So thankful for refreshing sleep!
HAVE A BLESSED WEEK EVERYONE!
