I can't believe it's already Thursday and October is halfway over already! The time is just flying by. You know what Thursday means . . . yeppers! Another five things about me post! Hope you are not sick about reading things about me yet!
I am a bit of a worry wart. I don't know why that is. I try hard to conquer it, but I still grab the ceiling of the car every time Todd gets near a red light . . . I never sleep the night before I have to fly, give a talk at church, etc. . . . I always cook too much when we have guests for supper, just in case there is not enough . . . its the same thing when we just have people over for nibbles, always far too much prepared . . . I can't bring myself to eat anything that's even a second out of date . . . the list goes on and on. My worry wartness is a great companion to . . .
My Guilt Complex. I feel guilty about things that aren't my fault. I find myself always apologizing. In grade six the music teacher said that somebody was singing of key in the Glee Club. I only mouthed the words the whole rest of the year because I was sure that it must have been me she was talking about. I am sure if World War Three started tomorrow . . . I'd find a way to blame myself for it . . . perhaps an exaggeration of sorts. But you get the point. Sorry about that. (oops! there I go again!)
I practice my penmanship every day. I have workbooks. I am doing the Spencarian method of penmanship. I did the MacLean's when I was at school. I took this up about a year ago because I found that my hand writing was becoming digressingly deplorable, probably due to too much keyboard use. I hate to think that handwriting might become a thing of the past . . . it's the same with paper books. I hope we continue to have both of these things for a very long time . . .
I never do anything by halves. I'm an all or nothing kind of girl. That is often a good thing, but sometimes it gets me into trouble and is bit of a nuisance . . . just ask Todd about my collections . . . or about my pedantic cleaning habits. It's also a bit of a pain when it comes to food . . . no half slices for me.
I wish I was better at using this word. I often find myself doing things I don't want to really do because I have a difficult time saying "No." Mind you, I've also had some really lovely experiences because I couldn't say no. So its not all bad. But I do wish that sometimes I could say no and not feel guilty about it.
I can't end on a negative!
I have a kind and generous heart. In fact I'd give you the shirt off my back if you asked for it. I am a giver. I get far more pleasure out of giving than getting. Getting embarasses me. I don't know why that is. But I love to give. I have to wait until the last minute to buy gifts because I want to give them away right NOW! Which can make it difficult sometimes. I just love bringing happiness to others. It might be a bit selfish . . . but I can't help giving!!
And that's it for this week! Tell me something new about you?
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
God's love is there for you. It is simply always there.
I promise you that one day you will stand aside and look at your
difficult times and you will realize that He was there right beside you.
~President Thomas S Monson
