Share Your World – 6-19-2017
1. What is something people are obsessed with that you just don’t get?
For me it has to be fishing. I don’t like it. It’s boring, it smells, you get icky if you bait a hook (icky being a technical term). I think catch and release is like torture for the fish. Some of this relates to being forced to sit in a small boat in hot and humid weather, with my parents while they enjoyed fishing. This happened often. Not to be rude, but I hated it.
2. What quirky things do people do where you are from?
People in Wyoming are a bit quirky about the use of firearms. But one thing that has stood out for my family is: no driver seems to be able to figure out how to navigate a roundabout. They either sit at the yield thinking it’s a stop sign, or can’t figure out which direction they are going in or want to be going in, or they blast ahead ignoring everyone else.🚗🏎🚚❓👉🏻👆🏾👇👈🏻❓🤠
3. What things would you unlearn?
I would unlearn being critical of myself. I would be able to look at myself in the mirror and think, “ok, you are ok”.
4. Who is someone you miss having in your life?
I miss a couple of good friends that I live far away from now. They made life much easier and more fun.
5. What are you grateful for from last week and what are you looking forward to this week?
I’m always grateful for time spent with my grandkids, but this week I spent some alone time with my daughter which was very special.
I am grateful my grandson is home from youth camp so we can spend some time together. One thing he said today as he dropped off my mail surprised me. I asked what he enjoyed most at the camp after he spoke about the activities of, swimming, rope challenge, zipline, singing, music, games, etc. He answered, the group discussions about life and Jesus. At seventeen I always knew he had a soft heart, but I guess he’s also an old soul. 💞
