Five Question Friday
Happy rainy Friday! At least it's a rainy Friday here. I had to stop off at Target after picking my son up from school to get a new coffee maker, and I could barely see where I was driving. It really poured, and the streets were starting to get flooded. I'm so glad to be back home! Let's get with the program - it's Friday, and that means Five Question Friday with Mama M at My Little Life.
1. What is one grammar issue you cannot let go without correction?
I am always correcting grammatical errors. Whether it's written or spoken, our language should be treated with respect. If I'm reading something and I find a grammatical error, I get stuck on it and it disturbs me to the point that I want to get a pen and correct it.
2. What's your favorite thing about fall?
Pretty much everything, but I would have to say the humidity goes down (eventually) and Thanksgiving.
3. What's your favourite dish to take to a potluck?
I usually will take a dessert. One of my favorite cakes, like pumpkin spice cake or lemon cake. They're always a hit.
4. When do you start Christmas (Holiday) shopping?
I've already started my Christmas shopping. I like to start in September, looking for deals and getting them wrapped as soon as they come into the house. I don't like to shop earlier than September because the house starts looking cluttered, and I hate clutter.
5. Did you move homes a lot growing up?
I guess we did. We lived in apartments in New York, and as the family grew we moved to larger spaces. The first apartment was a one bedroom, then when the twins were born we moved to a 2 bedroom. When my baby sister was born we moved into a 3 bedroom, and when the rats moved into that place we moved into the projects, another 3 bedroom apartment.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
