30 Truths... 2 ~ 5


OK, here we go again...
Number 2: Something you love about yourself.
That's easy, I LOVE my sense of humor...I'm funny. Even I think I'm funny. Sometimes I can barely contain myself telling a story, cuz I crack myself up. Case in point, my Carlsbad Caverns post. That's me at my best, just being FUNNY...love it!

Number3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.
SURVIVING...for being 1 of 2 children to have been spared from a tragic genetic disease that ultimately killed my Mother & has completely taken my brother from me. Huntingtons Disease is so cruel, it's a flip of a coin, a 50/50 chance. I won the toss, my brother did not & it breaks my heart. And the very worse of it is, I haven't seen him in 10 years at the hospital he's being cared for in, cuz I just can't handle it. I may never forgive myself for this one.

Number 4: Something you have to forgive someone else for.
I need to forgive a friend I've had since I was 17, for recent crimes that are not all that huge. They were just a handful of words, but those particular words were so hurtful to me. I wish they weren't & maybe they shouldn't have been...but they really were.

Number 5: Something you hope to do in life.
My life has been so full & I have been so blessed. I always want my family & friends to know that if I were to die tomorrow, I have had a GLORIOUS ride...everything from here on out is frosting. I would love to live a long enough & healthy enough life, to be able to see my grandson happily married & with beautiful baby's of his own...now that would truly be FROSTING!

Wow, this is a little harder & more thought provoking then I intially thought. lol I guess that's why I was up to the chalenge, how would I HONESTLY answer these questions. Gosh, I only have 25 more to go...arggghhhh! ;)

XOXO

Soryy I cursed you darling. At first glance, none of these seem all that earth shattering but nasty little buggers do get the gray matter churning, yes????
I love your sense of humor....and Carlsbad Caverns is definately a kick.

Wide open there--girl. Good for you!!!! I'm not sure I could pin these questions down to one answer.

My bosses husband has Huntingtons Disease, and several other family members have been devistated by the disease as well. Their children had tough decisions to make when starting their own families. A horrible disease for sure.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ouch to #3. So sorry for the pain. You definitely deserve self-forgiveness.

Love that you love your sense of humor. I love mine too! I crack myself up. Not so sure others appreciate my humor as much as me though. ;0)
Their loss! Ha!
