5 WORDS


1. KINDNESS...
Other than living my life for Jesus...kindness was next on the list of things my Mama and Daddy instilled in us. Daddy was the kindest man that I have ever known. We heard daily "You children be kind to one another," or "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all." So, I try to always be kind. Kindness matters.


2. TRAVEL...
Nothing excites me more than to load up the car and head out to the open roads. Destination...who cares! Tomer and I listening to the David Crowder Band, Third Day or Michael English...surprise. Just sitting in silence watching the world pass us by. Making lots of stops for a to go coffee or a pit stop because of the coffee...cheeseburgers and french fries from the Golden Arches, that for whatever reason welcomes me. Road trips are my favorite way to travel!


3. HOME...
Home is where my heart is. Where I have raised my girls and cared for 5 Grancbabies that also call this place home. Home is where you are love and accepted no matter your faults. Where you are safe and cared for, Where you get lots of hugs, kisses
and I love you's. As I have grown older, I realize that home too...is anywhere your Mama and Daddy are.


4. CHILDREN...
Well, I'm sure that you know since most of my posts are about them... that children are the center of our lives. Grandbabies who keep us busy with softball, swimming, school concerts and other activities. Tomer drives a School Bus and we both still teach Sunday School. Train up a child in the way he should go and lead by example. Most of all give them unconditional love...children love best.


5. BLOGGING...
Blogging has added so many new friends to my life. It has taken me places that I never expected and taught me many lessons. Just as Aaron held up the arms of his brother Moses. I am blessed with Sisters who hold me up, whatever the need...most of whom I have never met...yet! I love sharing my life with you all! I am blessed.


Today, I received (after requesting!) 5 words from Pat over at Living on Grace. It's all part of a meme that you join in, if you want to. Here's how it works; Pat got 5 words from another blogger, and she did a post about the 5 words she was given. She then offered to give 5 words to someone else. I posted my 5 words from Pat and wrote about each of them. If you want to play along, let me know in the comments, and I'll give you your own 5 words! It's fun!

Dear Trish,
I admire the simple and honest way you're describing the essences of your life.
It's indeed trustworthy and appealing.
You have made such conscious choices in life, I hope you are richly rewarded.
I'd sure like to play along too.
