11 Questions for me

  1. What made you started blogging?  I felt led by God to put down the experience of taking care of my mother for the last few years of her life.  I learned quite a bit during that period and also from taking care of my mother in law the last year or so of her life.  I feel like it would have been such an encouragement to me to gain from the experience of others going through the same thing.
  2. If you can choose to own one fictional gadget/tool, what is it and why? Hmmm, this is a difficult question.  Perhaps a time machine.  Even though I am retired, I never seem to have enough time for all of my projects.
  3. Name the strangest animal/living creature that you have seen. Probably the Sea Anemone.  When our children were young we had a saltwater fish tank.  We had a Sea Anemone.  Beautiful, yet strange
  4. Can you live without the internet for a week? Sure, I grew up before the internet was a thing.
  5. If you can fully learn one new language/skills today, what do you want to learn? German.  We had two German exchange students, although the more recent one actually grew up in Spain.
  6. If you can change one thing in this world, what is it? People’s conception of God.  He is our creator and loved us so much that He gave us his son.  Jesus lived among us, lived for and most importantly died for us.
  7. What is the one housework you hate/love to do?  I actually do like to organize.  My efforts do not seem to last very long though.
  8. Which movie character do you want to be? Winnie the Pooh. Everyone loves Pooh.
  9. When you meet the creator God, what is the number one question you would ask? I can’t think of a single question.  There are countless things I don’t understand, that is where faith and trust come in.  I’m thinking I would be quite speechless when seeing God face to face.  I would be in awe.
  10. What was the most horrible/disgusting food you have ever eaten? Liver and onions hands down.
  11. Tell us one thing you are passionate about. Family.  God has blessed me with a wonderful husband, three intelligent and kind children, three loveable children-in-law and eight grandchildren.  Family is so important, and the time to spend with them so short.

Here are the 11 questions for my nominees

1.  What encouraged you to write a blog?

2. How does your faith influence what you write about?

3.  What is your favorite book?

4.  What is your favorite type of music?

5.  Are you an animal lover?  What is your favorite animal?

6.  What is your favorite kind of food?

7.  What is your favorite color and why?

8.  Do you have a favorite flower or plant?

9.  Are you into making your own soaps, lotions, etc?

10.  What hobbies do you enjoy?

11.  Do you have a favorite season of the year, and why?

My nominees are:

I am very new to blogging.  I am still getting into the habit of reading other’s blogs and paying attention to the author. The blogs I am nominating are because of the thoughtfulness I see behind the writer.  They have encouraged my day’s and taught me a thing or two.  I appreciate all of them.

    Krista, congrats on your award. I always look forward to your posts and your reflections on the part of life where you cared for your mom. Thank you so much for thinking enough of my work to include me here. I’m a bit uncomfortable about getting awards, so I thought I would just answer your first question here. (What encouraged you to write a blog?) I’ve always enjoyed writing, and wanted to write a blog for several years. But I knew that doing a blog would mean that I’d have to put a part of my ‘self’ out there, and I didn’t have the courage to do that. I knew I wanted to write in my own voice, and I didn’t want to write if I wasn’t willing to be at least a little more sharing of my vulnerabilities than I am in real life. Last summer was very stressful, with unusually scary medical worries (don’t worry, I’m okay), and it set off a series of moods and events that led to an epiphany of sorts. And I decided writing a blog was something I had to do for me. And in the fall I made it a birthday present for myself. Thank you again! Best to you.
