At least it isn't another book review? LOL I may be a little obsessed with my reading lately ;)
Four-Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing.
Here's the fill-ins for this week:
1. It is important to learn ______________.
2. When I was _____________, I was obsessed with _________________.
3. I feel __________________about _____________.
4. My lucky number is ________________.
My answer is in bold, and each statement is followed by any comments I have on the subject.
1. It is important to learn to be happy with yourself.
Other people will come and go from your life, but you should be your own best friend! It's been an ebb and flow thing through my whole life so far, but happiness from within is the only happiness you have any control of.
2. When I was celebrating my first holiday season living on my own, I was obsessed with penguins.
Whoa - this was a harder one for me. I don't recall being obsessed with much over the years. But unpacking my holiday decorations will show that when I first set up my own place, without any small children around, I loved to hang penguin ornaments on my holiday tree. Which was kind of intentional. I liked them, sure, and having something to name made gift suggestions and requests easy. Now I love all the ornaments from/about/by my kids.
3. I feel passionate about feeding kids.
My 'day job' is feeding lunch at our local elementary school. While our district tends to be solidly middle class, there are still kids who get free or reduced lunch/breakfast, and kids with food insecurities. Some adults in the community don't believe it, or think the people picking up food since the schools have closed are 'scamming' the system for benefits, but I see these kids all the time. As well-to-do as some of our neighborhoods look from the outside, there are kids going to bed hungry, and kids who can't focus in class because they're worried about when they'll get their next meal. It really breaks my heart sometimes.
4. My lucky number is 13.
It's also my birthday. I like that it's odd and a prime number, without being too high to count in a hurry :) Hey, you asked!
Hope you and yours are doing well in this wild, wild world. Make good choices, and stay safe!
