Share Your World – 2014 Week 25


Here are Cee’s Share Your World questions for week 25:

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal, drawing, cartoon or character in a movie or TV show)

A black lab.  My Kayla was a Golden Retriever/St. Bernard mix.

Kayla 3

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I am deaf in my right ear from too much loud music through headphones and too many rock concerts when I was younger.

Have you ever gone scuba diving?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

No and no.  I tried using a snorkel and mask once, but began to feel claustrophobic and panicky.  They came off quickly.

What was the most important event in your life last week? (anything goes it can be a good nights sleep, finished a reading book,winning the lottery, or getting married)

There have been two important events recently.


My youngest step-son got married on the 14th to a wonderful girl;  and I was asked to do the mother/son dance with him.

Dancing with the groom

The other event was a short visit from my son who flew home from California on Father’s Day.



Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for those two events.  For being able to share in the wonderful happiness of my step-son, and for being able to visit with my son, even if only for a few short hours.

Not much planned for the next week or so.

Thanks so much for stopping in and sharing in my world.

As always you can answer these questions yourself by posting in the comments below or you can create your own post.

Good morning, all.

I hope each of you had a joyous celebration of our Savior’s birth.

Mine started out slow and not very well.

Everything went wrong from the time I got out of bed until late afternoon.

I won’t bore you with the details – just say that Satan was having a field-day trying to ruin my day.  I tried hard not to let things get to me, to let the peace of the day fill me; but have to admit by evening I was a little quite irritated.

But then 7:00 arrived and a young man came to my door, all the way from California.

This mother’s heart melted and wept to have the first Christmas with him in 4 or 5 years.

We sat and talked about his job, his life in the west.

We reminisced about past Christmases when I would pound on his bedroom door at 6:00 Christmas morning, and hear the teenage voice tell me to go away because he was trying to sleep.

We talked about favorite foods, Christmas foods, and he once again tried to tell me how much I enjoyed sushi when he brought some last summer.  (bleh)

He showed us pictures of his cat sitting on the suitcase as if to keep him from packing and flying home for Christmas (either that or trying to tell him to bring her with him when he came).

He showed us pictures of activities he had gone to and participated in over the last few months – concerts and sporting events he attended, volunteering at a Thanksgiving dinner for the needy, and photos he had taken where he works.

When he left, taking a pie-tin filled with  Grandma Henderson’s Sugar Cookies,  it was close to midnight and all of my irritation with the rest of the day had vanished as if it had never been.

(J, I so enjoyed the time spent with you; and am so glad we got to spend part of the day together.  I am looking forward to tomorrow’s breakfast.  I love you.)

Have a blessed day, everyone.
