Today is Monday. That means it’s time for Manic Monday – a meme designed to give your mind a workout to clear out the cobwebs from the weekend. You can either click the link in the words Manic Monday above or click the graphic in my left sidebar.
So, here we go. Are you ready? While you read MY answers think about what YOUR answers might be.
What is one thing that you wanted to do this summer but didn’t? For the last "I don’t know how many" years I have attended our denomination’s national convention. However, this year I didn’t get to attend because the kids were going to Sylvan every day to prepare them to return to school. It’s always a time of fun and seeing old friends. Our denomination is like one really big family. Most of us attended our denominational Bible College. So, you see people that you normally would have long forgotten about. Yet every summer you get to see one another. It’s like a family reunion. I missed that this year. I won’t be missing it again!!
If you lived a hundred years ago, what job would you’ve had? Well, first of all, I’m GLAD I didn’t live a hundred years ago because there was no air conditioning. hahahahaha Seriously, I think my mindset would be different back then than it is now. I don’t think that we would have been farmers. Ron is a business man. I think somehow he would still be a business man. Thankfully, because I can’t see me ever living on a farm. But like I said my mindset would have been different. IF I worked outside the home at all I think I would have been a schoolteacher. Thankfully though God put me in the RIGHT era. Whew!!
What are some of the most persistent and challenging obstacles in your everyday life? This question is the easiest for me to answer. Right now I struggle physically with fibromyalgia – which brings pain. But mostly I am learning that I have to fight the mental game. For the most part I’ve just given in to how I feel. It has kept me from doing things. I am finding though that I can do more than I think I can do if I just make myself. Sometimes it works better than others but I can usually make myself go. Now there are still some days that it just ain’t gonna happen no matter how positive the attitude. Telling the difference is the challenge.
