Okay, so it's not Friday...and okay, I haven't posted in more than a week...but after being crazy-busy for the first part of this week and battling strep throat for the second half, now is the first time I've been able to post in a while.
I'm slowly on the mend, which is good because I am extremely tired of laying in bed, I am out of Harry Potter on CD to listen to, and I'm sick of waking up exhausted and with a sore throat.
So here it is - another Fill in the Blank Friday from Lauren at the little things we do ... play along if you'd like!
1. Giving is the best thing ever. If I could afford it, every time I saw something that I thought someone would love, I would buy it for them. I feel happiest when I'm making other people happy, and I think giving is a good way to do that.
2. Receiving is nice, but not as nice as giving. I really would rather give than receive - it's more fulfilling.
3. The best gift I ever received was my autographed Luke Ridnour jersey. I was in eighth grade, basically obsessed with him (he was the University of Oregon's stud basketball player who was in his rookie season for the Seattle SuperSonics), and someone in my life knew how happy it would make me...he was right!
4. The best gift I ever gave was my present to my parents last Christmas. I found a whole bunch of cute pictures of my siblings and I from when we were little and printed them in black and white and put them in a nice frame.
5. Something intangible that I wish I could receive is the ability to be crafty. I always have great visions of things in my head that never come out quite right. I'd also like to receive the ability to be less competitive. My need to always be right isn't always the best thing in my various relationships.
6. Something intangible that I wish I could give is , without being too cliche, is love. It really is the greatest thing, and it makes me so sad to know that some people don't have any in their life, or don't feel as if they do. I wish I could let everyone know that they are loved and have worth, because from there, great things can happen.
7. The one gift I always wanted as a child, but never got, was...I don't know. Not to say I got everything I ever wanted or asked for, but I think the important things in life, like being with family, are what I remember more than the gifts I did or didn't get.
Have a great week!
