2. Is there a nativity scene in your decorating somewhere? Post a picture or, if it's special to you in some way, tell us why. Or do both-it's Christmas! I have a beautiful nativity scene. It is very simple in design but is very fitting. I do not have it up yet. I think I will get it out this year, maybe.
3. Do you live in a social neighborhood? If so are you glad? If not do you wish you did? Many of my neighbors are my family... We are social for sure.
4. As the saying goes, 'there's no time like the present'. How does that ring true in your life right now? It is ringing true here. I don't spend a lot of time thinking about the future at the moment. We are living day by day and enjoying it. Each day is a gift and I want to savor it. Today I will be keeping my baby nephew. He is 9 months old now and I honestly can't believe how fast the time has flown! It seems that a blink ago he couldn't even roll over and now he is crawling and getting into everything! I love it and it helps to keep me grounded! My own babies are teens so I truly miss this wonderful baby stage!
5. Do you dread Mondays? Why or why not? I am one of those people who dread Mondays. I think I have always dreaded Mondays. I am not a schedule person so when Monday rolls around I have to leave the carefree weekends go...
6. Poinsettia, Christmas Cactus, Amaryllis-which on the list is your favorite holiday plant? Are any of these on display in your home right now? I will say Christmas Cactus but the Poinsettia is very close... My Christmas Cactus is in bloom right now. They are so lovely. When I decorate, I like to use Poinsettias.
7. Share a favorite quote from a Christmas movie. I don't think I actually have a favorite quote but one our family uses is: You'll shoot your eye out with that thing! from a Christmas Story. I will assume that it isn't the actual direct quote but close. I will also state that I am NOT a fan of that movie but it has some really good one liners in it! :0)
8. Insert your own random thought here. Today Jeremiah and I celebrate our 20th Anniversary. We were high school sweethearts who were engaged on Christmas Day then married two years later with a Country Christmas wedding. December 7 is Pearl Harbor Day so many folks don't choose to marry on that day but it was also my Pap's birthday. We decided that it was ok to chose that date. We even mentioned Pap's birthday on the wedding program. He is gone now, actually passed away on Christmas Eve many years ago, but all our grandparents live on in our hearts and memories. In reference to question #4; live in the present and enjoy every day you are given. Plan for the future, but don't obsess about it; remember the past and learn from it. We never know how many of days were are blessed with. Have a blessed day and enjoy it to the fullest. God is good- all the time!
After re-reading #8, I think I hit random on that!!!! I am very scattered with my answer! Have a good day anyhow! ~smile~
