Some time ago, Cheryl had this post and challenged us to post the "I am's" about ourselves. So, here goes...
I am: really ready for this splint to be removed. I have tried my best to maintain a positive attitude, and for the most part I think I have succeeded, but I will be really happy tomorrow at 1:30 PM. I expect to be in some apparatus for several more weeks, but just a half hour reprieve will be welcome.
I miss: My sister-in-law, Bonnie. She has been gone three years and I miss her every day.
I shop: Sporadically, but when I so, I most always find something I "just can't live without".
I hear: The chirping of the birds outside my sun porch.
I crave: My friends would all say attention, which is true. But right now I also crave a Wegman's chocolate brownie. Yummy!
I love: Jim and our daughters, my son-in-law Brian, and my extended family and friends.
I wonder: What my son would be like had he grown to manhood.
I celebrate: Everything I can.
I always: Love to take a nap.
I sing: Poorly. I sing very loudly when I'm alone in the car.
I cry: Much less than I used to. I think the sadness and hardships of life have taught me not to cry over small things.
I don't always: Finish projects I start. Knitting is a perfect example.
I pray: A lot but even still, I often neglect my quiet time. I'm working on that.
I write: Because I love to.
I lose: Everything but weight.
I need: People.
I surf: Not
I dread: Becoming a crotchety old lady. Nah! That won't happen.
I anticipate: The joy I'll feel when this splint is removed.
I laugh: As much as I possibly can.
Today has been a perfectly gorgeous day. Jim helped me with my summer program at a local library. We had 39 children and 20 adults. It was fantastic.
