Thank you all for continued prayers for David. We appreciate them very much.

Please be sure to visit him over at Random Thoughts and Observations and give him a big welcome back to the Fill-Ins.

Please also be praying our Ellen, one of the Friendly Fill-In co-hostesses, and her beautiful kitty Noel. Noel is feeling mighty poorly these days and can use all the prayers she can get.

The neighbor’s kitty named Tigger on our patio.

Here are my responses:

Cuddling with our kitties never fails to improve my bad mood.

I feel out of place no matter where I am at. I have never had a true sense of belonging.

I would like to find a treasure chest full of answers to my questions – all 10 billion of them!

If you ask me, lack of money keeps the doctor away.

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

  1. I joined _______________ in ______________________.
  2. I wish I’d asked _______________ about ___________.
  3. _________ had the biggest impact on who I am today.

Here are my responses:

I joined Blue Birds, a part of the Campfire Girls, when I was in elementary school. All I remember about it was that we met in the lunchroom at the school, and I got a little Blue Bird pin.

I wish I’d asked Grandma and Granny how they met my Grandpa and Papa. And, about the day I was born.

Many things had a big impact on who I am today. I would have to say that early exposure to the love of Jesus had the biggest impact.  If not for that, I never would have survived the other thing that had the second biggest impact, and that was not belonging.

The Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall is the most beautiful place I have ever been.

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Here are my responses:

My favorite Peanuts character is Linus.

I knew I was no longer a child when I brought one into the world.  I guess I knew it before then, really, but that moment is the point of no return for me.

I was shocked when I learned that…I think you all know the answer to that one by now. 😦

I always feel frustrated when I try to do anything lately. No matter what I try to do, I mess up.

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I am a stickler for ___________________________.
  2. By the end of August, I plan to _______________.
  3. _____________ is my favorite thing about myself.
  4. These days, my biggest priority is ____________.

Here are my responses:

I am a stickler for hand washing.  I hate to see people start to leave the restroom without washing their hands.  I say “start” because I generally say something to them about it.

By the end of August, I plan to forget that I turned 54 this past Sunday. Shouldn’t be too hard, I forget everything already, including my own name sometimes!

My love of family history is my favorite thing about myself.  This was a difficult one for me. I don’t really have a favorite thing about myself. David suggested the genealogy answer. I guess that is as close as anything is going to get.

These days, my biggest priority is to keep David alive and, well, you all know the other one.  PLUS, trying to find out if I am double cousins to one of my sets of cousins. What I found while I was researching that potential connection is that David IS kin to them through his mother and their mother.  I am kin to them through their father and my mother. My connection through my mother and their father is wayyyyy closer than David’s connection to them.

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Here are my responses:

I love it when a plan comes together. That is the first thing that came to mind. It is a line from a movie we watched years ago, but I don’t remember which movie. I love it when I’m able to find the answers someone has been searching for, but were not able to find themselves for whatever reason. Usually that reason is a lack of time and time is something that I do have. Not uninterrupted time, mind you(the bladder calleth), but still time.

I know it’s time to find something else to do when I start making mistakes with whatever I am doing.

Others come to me when they need for this or that information to be found. Back in our AOL days, my nickname was Ms. Directory Assistance of the Internet. I enjoyed it immensely and still do!

We should never take our loved ones for granted. We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. One day they won’t be around any longer and we’ll realize what we have lost and what we wasted.
