Five Question Friday
You know what today is? Friday! Time for my Five Question Friday post, courtesy of Mama M at My Little Life.
1. What album/cd/download are you embarrassed to admit you have?
I downsized my music collection a few months ago, and got rid of all my old cassette tapes (remember those?) with heavy metal music. Poison, White Snake, that sort of thing. The only thing I've kept is a CD my son gave me awhile back - Bon Jovi. Am I too old for that sort of music? Maybe, but I still enjoy hearing it now and then.
2. What's the one thing your spouse does better than you?
The Mister (we are separated) is an extrovert, so his job as a sales supervisor is perfect for him. I'm an introvert, so approaching people to convince them to buy anything is a stretch.
3. When do you start buying Halloween Candy?
Not till it's a week or so before Halloween. Otherwise we might end up having to buy more.
4. Family closets - Yay or nay?
When the kids were little they did share a closet for awhile, but as they get older and their wardrobes grow with them, it's too difficult to fit a lot of clothes in a bedroom closet. Even my master bedroom has two walk-in closets, a his and a hers, and they're pretty packed. For us to have a family closet would mean converting an entire bedroom into a closet, which is not feasible for us at this time.
5. Which home/cleaning chore do you hate the most? Why?
Bathrooms. Who wants to clean dirty toilets? Yuck!
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
