1. When were you last a guest at an event or in someone's home? Tell us about it. Do you enjoy having guests in your own home?
This would have been August 2019. My friends (3 friends) and I planned a trip to Hawaii. We would arrive in Dallas, Texas and fly to Hawaii together. EXCEPT my small airport wasn't cooperating! I was having to fly to Charlotte and then to LAX and then to Hawaii. Nope, I wasn't having it. I tried 2 different airports and nothing was working out. My friend, who lives in Atlanta, suggested I fly to Atlanta, spend the night with her and her son would drive us to the airport, and we could meet up with our friend in Dallas. I had to fly a day earlier and had an extra leg. Donna (my friend) gave me a tour of her neighborhood, went out for a quick dinner, and her son fixed a special treat at midnight that night. At 4:30 the alarm woke us all up and we were off the airport.
I enjoy having guests in my home.
2. What has you 'tied up in knots' currently or recently? Are you any good at tying actual knots?
My country. The riots, protests,the vengeance acts, and impeachments is literally mind-blowing not to mention we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Heaven is mourning at how America has turned its face.
I use to be good at tying knots, but with age I have developed some arthritis which makes this difficult.
3. What's something you've been wanting to do and have decided 2021 will be the year you 'take the plunge'?
This year, I will focus on God first and Tammy (me) next. It is easy to focus on God, but baby steps to focus on me and my needs and happiness.
4. Something in your home that's old? Something new? Something borrowed? Something blue?
Old...besides me ha! would be an old clock radio that hubs had before we were married and we were married 37 years and it still sits on a nightstand.
New...my kitchen dinette set
Blue...I have a blue wall hanging in my living room
5. Share a favorite quote, a verse of scripture, and/or a bit of wisdom for couples getting married in this challenging and seemingly unpredictable season we're currently/still experiencing.
I gave this advice to both my daughters. I do not believe a marriage is 50/50. There were days I needed more that 50 and vice versa with hub. Some days it might have been 70/30. Marriage is partnership but depending on how the day unfolded, hub or I might have needed more or less than 50% . It is a commitment for a life time and you are All IN! There will be times when you argue or disagree BUT remember the love you have for each other.
A couple of special verses I also gave daughters were 1Peter 4:8 "Above all, maintain constant love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins." and Ephesians 5:33 " To sum up, each one of you is to love his wife as himself, and the wife is to respect her husband."
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Thursday at 2:15 I am scheduled for my first dose of the Moderna vaccine. Praying and thanking God for the knowledge he has given the scientists.
Have a great week and Enjoy Life!
