I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

A Poignant Loss, Something to be Happy About & Christmas Greetings

Howdy beautiful people! 😘 Did anyone out there miss me? πŸ˜‚

Our master bedroom is a huge mess right now. I am surrounded by scattered mountains of stuff that need to be packed into already burgeoning suitcases when ..

Share Your World 2016 #37

Hey guys! How are ya? ❀ πŸ˜€ Things are settling pretty well in the new house and you and I should chat about this sometime soon, yes?Β  I’ve found my mouse – yay! XD But we’re switching internet providers since the current one’s not very reliable so, this week will just be another lone blog post by way of Cee’s Share Your World weekly challenge.

With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world which may not always match our reality.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?

Hmmm …. I don’t think so. I had a rock that was engraved with the word “strength” before but I was using it as a key chain.

By the way, the notion of having a rock as a pet strikes me as a bit odd. I know some people collect rocks but I can’t see how something inanimate could be considered a ‘pet’. I need to study up on this πŸ™‚

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

Oh dear, I’m drawing a blank on this one … hmmmmkay: I’m a type A+ perfectionist so I do not know my strengths (may have to ask the husband later 😏) because I tend to focus on my weakness instead. (And the perfectionist me says I have many!) o_O o_O

Also it’s been a while since I applied for a job so I no longer have a canned answer for this one XD XD

Seriously though, here’s one I want to change – I really want to stop reacting to an emergency (or anything unexpected for that matter) with panic. I hate it! 😧 Granted, I don’t run around screaming and waving my hands in the air but my mouth might betray me if I’m not careful πŸ˜₯

The thing is, panicking is not helpful. If any, it curtails rational and creative thinking and makes the problem look worse than it actually is. So I would like to be able to stay calm and NOT think that the world is ending πŸ™πŸ» πŸ™πŸ»

Any tips?

What makes you feel grounded?Β 

I’ve been feeling a lot more grounded ever since my family has been together. I’ve settled comfortably into the role of SAHM (I honestly love it!) and, at this point, am able to receive and enjoy the support of my husband without feeling insecure about my worth as a human being. (You know, I used to be an independent, self-supporting, head-strong, career ladder climbing “Super Woman” in my previous life πŸ˜›).

My Bible study and devotionals, a relatively recent addition to my definition of a perfect day, also helps me greatly in this area.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

Easy! I’d give up cold food in an instant. My stomach just cannot get satisfaction from a cold meal 🍜 🍲 🍳

Bonus question: Β What are you grateful for from last week ~

Our new study room with it’s beautiful balcony πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ(See picture above)

~ and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?Β 

Being able to make my own chicken nuggets. (It’s a feat you know, from someone who never even liked venturing into the kitchen 😏 I’ve certainly come a LOOONG way, dahling!)

Now what are YOUR answers?! I’d love to read them in the comment section below πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Have a wonderful, blessed weekend everyone! ツ
