Share Your World, Oct.9, 2017

What do you consider is the most perfect food for you? Ham and Scalloped potatoes.  My mother’s was the best ever and I’ve never duplicated it.

Are you focused on today or tomorrow? Today, but I’m taking tomorrow into account.

If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask? Rather than a great-great-great, I’d interview my father’s father, Walter, because he died before I was born and I’d love to ask him what it was like for a gentle baker from Holland to be henpecked by his wife into driving out to South Dakota by covered wagon with his two young daughters and building a shanty and turning into a farmer–something he knew nothing about. (My grandmother and 3 year old son, my father, came out by train a year later after he’d set everything up.)  I would love to hear his side of the story and experience his gentle personality.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I appreciate being with my long-time friend Patty, my sister and brother-in-law Jim and my godson Riley and his two adorable boys.  You’ve seen them before.  Here they are in their newest incarnations:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I have been in that beautiful home. It’s so good to see Patti and Jim on a whim. Love you all and I hope you have a wonderful time together. I just got instructions from brother Bill to call him at 8:00 o’clock sharp his time in the morning. Guess I’m in trouble for something. I sure wish he had been born a girl…
