Pray, pray and pray some more for each other. When we pray for our spouses it not only benefits them but us as well as HE works in both of our lives. And, don't sweat the small aggravations, just accept them! You'll be all the better for it!
2. Before we're too far into the new year I wanted to post a question Teresa submitted during the December giveaway. Teresa blogs over at Being Refined As Silver, so everyone go say hi.
Teresa asks, "What were you doing on December 31st, 1999?"and "Did you or your family make preparations for Y2K?"
Oh, my goodness, talk about memories! We celebrated with dear friends by going out to dinner and then came back to our house to wait it out together. Just before 2000 rolled in all of our children joined us and it was a most memorable time for sure.
Yes, Hubby and I did make some preparations for Y2K. We had gallons of water, canned tuna, pork and beans, etc and Hubby got a bit of cash and stashed it away. Thankfully, none of it was needed, but at least we were somewhat prepared.
bae (before anyone else), polar vortex, hack, skill set, swag, foodie, curate/curated, friend-raising, enhanced interrogation, cra-cra (as in crazy), takeaway, and -nation (a suffering sports suffix).
Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why? Is there a word not on the list you'd like to add?
The word that jumped out at me is cra-cra. For goodness sakes, it is the absolute silliest word and the first time I heard someone use it, I immediately thought they were crazy for sure. I have heard both adults and teenagers use it.
I have just finished watching The Gabby Douglas Story on Netflix. It was a Lifetime movie last Feb. but I did not see it at that time. If you have not seen it and are looking for an inspiring movie, it's for you. I had a special interest in it as her trainer, Chow, lives in Des Moines, Iowa and his studio is very near where my brother lives. It's truly a story of grit and determination!
