Two for One

I'm doing a double post today. I didn't post yesterday so I'm going to hit the Thankful Thursday and the Friday's Feast/Friday Field Trip in the same post!

~1 Thessalonians 5:18~ Give thanks to God in all circumstances (no matter what they may be), for this is God's will for you (who are) in Christ Jesus.

My Peace I Leave With You



Thankful Thursday: What Nic is thankful for this week


A man who prays for me and with me on a daily basis.
Warm fuzzies that make me grin from ear to ear.
Finding out that a day you thought was going to not be so good turns out to be unexpectedly wonderful.
Instant Messenger that allows a 9 hour time difference between two people become the span of only a few seconds.
Smiles that just won't quit.
Love shared that is unconditional between my daughter and me.

So you participate in the Thankful Thursday and/or the Friday's Feast? If so please leave your site below and I will come by for a visit!


Feast One Hundred & One


Appetizer
When was the last time you visited a hospital?

The last time I visited a hospital was when I was giving birth, so it was kind of a mandatory “visit”.

Soup
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how ambitious are you?

Ambitious? Oh I would say if it interests me I’m a 9 or a 10. If it doesn’t interest me I’d say around a 5.

Salad
Make a sentence using the letters of a body part. (Example: (mouth) My other ukelele tings healthily.)

MOUTH – Making Our Unique Thoughts Heard.
FACE – Fear Acknowledges Courage Everyday.
HEART – Hear Everything And React Thusly.
LIPS – Love Is Personal Service.
CHIN – Courage Helps In Need.
ELBOW – Every Love Begins On Wonder.

Main Course
If you were to start a club, what would the subject matter be, and what would you name it?

I think I would start a club for support of single parents with kids who look older and have intelligence beyond their years. I know it’s difficult sometimes for Emily b/c she’s much younger than she appears and acts and people expect so much out of her that she’s not able to give yet since she’s only 4, is the size of a six or seven year old and the intelligence of at least an 8 or 9 year old. I would call it MOW – Mothers of Wunderkinds. Wunderkind is German for “wonder kids”. (Of course there would be no discrimination of single dads in this club so they would be welcome to join too.)

Dessert
What color is the carpet/flooring in your home?

Living room is rust colored; carpet, kitchen, bathrooms and walkways a gray/rust style of “brick tile”; master bedroom and second bedroom is gray carpet.

And FINALLY the Friday Field Trip.

A couple of months ago I did the FFT for Monk-E-Mail. Well, today is more monkey madness!

Yes, it's TRUNK MONKEY!!!

You have such a great blog! So much to see and read.

Happy belated birthday. I'm sorry it took me until today to find your blog, or I might have been on time! ;-)

BTW - I discovered you through Crazy Hip Blog Mamas.
