SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

I got an e-mail asking you to take the first two words and complete the sentence. I thought it was a very self-reflective task so I wanted to post it. I challenge everyone to do the same. It made me think....which is good because sometimes I go through my day too busy to reflect. Try it...I dare you!

I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A PROJECT.
I WANT A VACATION
I WISH TOBY WAS HERE
I HATE IGNORANCE
I MISS TOBY LAYING NEXT TO ME AT NIGHT
I FEAR NOT BEING THE KIND OF MOM MY BOYS NEED ME TO BE
I HEAR ROXY SNORING
I SMELL FRESH SHEETS
I CRAVE A HUG FROM TOBY
I SEARCH ON THE INTERNET FOR EVERYTHING…AN ADDICTION
I WONDER IF MY KIDDOS KNOW HOW LOVED THEY ARE
I REGRET EVER BEING GRUMPY…I HAVE NOTHING TO BE GRUMPY ABOUT.
I LOVE MY HOME
I CARE DEEPLY ABOUT THE GOODWILL OF OTHERS
I ACHE FOR TOBY’S HUGS
I ALWAYS TAKE ON TOO MUCH
I BELIEVE IN OPTIMISM
I DANCE TO MAKE MY KIDS LAUGH…AND TOBY TOO.
I SING TO MY KIDS ALL THE TIME….HORRIBLY
I CRY RARELY
I DON’T ALWAYS PRIORITIZE WELL…I PICK FUN OVER NECESSITY
I FIGHT OVER THINGS I BELIEVE IN
I WRITE TOO MUCH ON MY BLOG…NOT ENOUGH IN A JOURNAL
I NEVER WANT TOBY, JACK, OR SAM TO GO A DAY WITHOUT FEELING APPRECIATED
I LISTEN NOT CAREFUL ENOUGH TO WHAT JACK IS TRYING TO SAY…HE IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND SOMETIMES
I NEED SOME DOWN TIME
I AM HAPPY EVERYDAY….IT’S A CHOICE

I love it! We all need to reflect a little more on how blessed we are...sometimes we get too busy to appreciate it all.

That was great. I love when you said I'm happy everyday, it's a choice. Isn't it so true. I have to remember that too.

Hi Betsy! Your list is great! I especially like the last one... be happy. I've been letting myself slip into this horrible negative mood lately and I need to work on that! Thanks for the reminder!

Ruth Ann said...
