It is always nice to visit with Patrice. She seems like she has been very busy too. Now on to this week's questions:
1. Are you planning on doing most of your Christmas shopping in stores, or online?
Both, I like to do most of my shopping online, but there are just things I have to go buy and it is nice to do a bit of shopping.
2. Have you ever been to a bonfire?
Yes, I really enjoy bonfires.
3. What would "simplifying life" mean to you?
" Simplifying Life" means to me that my family is healthy, my kids are good and my husband and I have time to take time with each other without having to always be rushing. To me there is nothing simpler just sharing a cup of coffee and watching the sun set with the sound of voices quietly talking, the sound of my son on the piano and knowing that no matter what happens, God is in control, and my future in never out of His hands, and He controls the future.
4. Tell me about one blog you really enjoy reading.
That is like saying which kid do you like best. :) I have a blog family that I read and I get excited when they have updated. I love reading about day to day life. I love knowing about the ups and downs, the hard times and the good times. I love knowing laughter and being able to share tears, I love praying for each one and I consider blogging a part of my extended family. I feel that each blog I visit is important to that person, and each one is my daily gift of life.
5. Have you ever had someone who isn't in your family, but felt just like family?
Well of course. I grew up in a family that when you got home from school, there might be someone staying with us for as long as they needed to or needed a roof over their head. My Dad always had a open door policy in our home. I have lots of people that while they may not be family they blessed my life as we shared meals around the table. I think as I get older that is one thing I notice, is life is richer because of the people who stopped and you got to share in their lives. Now, I feel like since I have kids here all of the time that I have lots of kids and even though they aren't mine, I love them like they are.
Thank you so much to Patrice, I have been in a blogging block. I have just sat and stared at the blinking cursor and couldn't think of a thing to say.
So thank you once again great questions this week.
Stop by and join in this week
Just a plug here. I am going to do a blog interview tomorrow on a blog named Country Girl at Home.
