Reserved, humble and prayerful. These all describe my precious Mother and I'm so thankful the Lord blessed me with her. Mother's Day has never been the same since her death 8 years ago. It still holds a certain sadness to me.
3. What's something beautiful you own or have seen that's made of glass?
After my Mom's death my Dad gave me a beautiful cut glass pedestal candy dish that once belonged to his Mother. She had given it to my Mom and Daddy wanted me to have it after Mom died. I can just see it sitting somewhere in her house with hard candy in it. Remember the unwrapped hard candy that was always stuck together and we just reached in with both hands, pulled it apart and ate it. Perish the thought that we would do that today. ~too many germs~
Be a little more "fly by the seat of your pants." I'm all about a schedule and a plan for the most part and think it's definitely the more productive way. But, there are times that no schedule and no plans are the way to go.
I had a LOT of responsibility from a very young age and I can't say that I really disliked any of it. I was looking for ways to earn money at the age of 13 by babysitting, doing ironing, cleaning houses, etc. At 15 I got a job as a cashier at a local grocery. I did all these things and still managed to enjoy some fun time. It required that I be a very good manager of my time and I'm pretty sure that's why I'm still fairly good with time management and organization.
NOTE: I will likely not be back to my regular blogging until Monday, too much going on the rest of this week. But, will have lots to share then, so stay tuned!
