Share Your World ~~~ August 28, 2017

Sending lots of love and light to Texans who have been hit by the hurricane. May you all stay safe.

Cee is back from her mini vacation so here is this week’s edition of Share Your World. 

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

A day with no pain….of course that would probably mean I died, so let’s skip that, shall we?

Ok, instead let’s go with a rainy day that I can snuggle down with a hot cup of coffee and listen to the drops hitting the roof. Quiet, peaceful and stress-free. Ahhhhhh. No TV blaring, no one talking, just being in the moment.

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

Is in a home in the woods. Where the deer scamper and bees buzz, butterflies float with the breeze. Quiet and peaceful and full of nature. With a small lake full of jumping fish and playful dragonflies skimming the water. I know this place exists somewhere. I’ve been to places that were close to this perfection. I’m willing to go and test out places to fit my preferences.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

Gloria Holt. She was a distant relative I found out later. We went to grade school together and were best friends for years. Unfortunately, she came to a bad end I found out later. We drifted apart when we moved out of the neighborhood and I saw here years later on a bus of all things. I’m not sure she recognized me but I sure recognized her. She was working the streets back then, hooked on drugs after being sexually abused as a kid. I never knew she was being abused as she didn’t know I was. We never discussed it. I thought it was just so heartbreaking for her to deal that way with the abuse. Could have easily been me, I suppose. I just choose not to go down that destructive road.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

People might fuss, fight and feud but when the times get tough they do work together for the greater good. People in Texas are known for standing up for their convictions, whether good or bad and fighting for them. But when the hurricane caused so much damage they came together as a united people to help others. THAT is what keeps my faith in humanity.

  1. That cabin in the woods sounds like it needs to be found in sort order. You could do a little research, write about it and write off the trips 🙂 You really need that cabin soon. Love your quotes slide show.

  2. Thanks for the reminder about Texas, Jackie. I’ve been telling everyone that donations would go a long way to provide shelter, water and food for the thousands who have lost everything. Two places to donate: The American Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse.

  3. We so think a like. I too would say a perfect day would either be warm and sunny or rainy where I could take a break from the chores and curl up with a book and listen to the rain This year I’d opt for the sunny and warm as we’ve had so much rain that it’s not a special event for me any longer.

    I’d also choose that cabin in the woods. That was always my dream since I was a little girl. Being introverted and drawn to nature what could be better?

    The story of your childhood friend breaks my heart. That could have been me too. I often wonder what makes some of us determined to move beyond the abuse and create the lives we want and others drown in the pain never finding their as-happily ever after as possible they could have had.

    1. We’ve had very little rain this summer. Things here are very, very dry. We are surrounded by grass fires and the air is so thick with smoke I can hardly breathe. It’s really bad and it’s been so hot! I’ll take some of your rain. 🙂

      1. I can’t be around smoke either or it causes asthmatic reaction in me. A few of us were talking here a week or so ago about how we wish we could run a pipeline or fill tankers to deliver our rain to dry areas. We had almost a week without rain and still parts of my property were so wet that you sunk in it if you tried to walk on it. I’ve never seen anything like it in these parts before.
