I read a lot! But not especially to learn something. Reading to me is like TV to other people. I just enjoy reading. It is my favorite thing to do. I read for pleasure, not to study or learn something. So most of what I read is fiction, and occasionally a biography or memoir.
I don’t go to church anymore, but I went to a bible study for several years that gave me an appreciation for the Bible. Though I don’t read the Bible every day it has an impact on my life. It makes me think about and consider life differently than before. I pray every day and often meditate which came about from my daily Bible reading in the past. So I would say the Bible is the book that changed my life.
I planned on doing the January Bloganuary post every day. But somehow that didn’t happen, so here I am catching up. I hope to keep current for the rest of the month.
1/2 How are you brave? I can’t say I am brave. I have had to make hard choices and do difficult things and maybe some think that is a form of bravery, but I think that’s just part of life.
1/3 What is your earliest memory? I remember when I was about 3 years old sitting on the dining room table arguing with my mother that she was putting my socks on the wrong feet. I knew that there was a right sock and a left sock!
1/4 What is a treasure that has been lost? Someone I loved with all my heart.
1/5 What brings you joy in life? The people I know and love.
1/6 Why do you write? No big or important reason. It’s just something I like to do.
1/7 Write a short story or poem about rain. The rain falls softly Cool and fresh The earth is renewed
1/8 How far back in your family tree can you go? Not very far. Nobody talked much about the past.
1/9 What is the most memorable gift you ever received? The Teddy Bear I was given the day I was born. Of course, I don’t remember actually receiving it but my Guy was my best friend and I still have him.
It has been a while since I have participated in Bloganuary but I have decided that this year I will. I don’t know how it will go. I haven’t been exactly motivated to write lately. So here goes the first day…the prompt is
What is something you want to achieve this year?
Hmm, I am not very good at making plans or looking ahead, but I will try to answer this prompt. Getting more exercise this year is the only thing I have come up with. The plan is to walk and do my stair and hallway circuits every day and do some simple exercises every other day.
So, today I went for a walk and did my stair and hallway circuit. Day one was a success!
The picture is an impressionist painting of me my brother did when I was in my early 20’s.
December is the month of Christmas. Somehow it doesn’t seem like it this year. I wonder why? Is it because it is warm instead of cool or cold? Or is it just me? Do I need an attitude adjustment? Am I becoming a curmudgeon in my odd oldness? Maybe I need a swift kick in the butt! Or a slap up the side of the head!
