Cee’s Share Your World, January 22, 2018

share your world challenge

I love Mondays.  That’s when I have this challenge of Cee’s to look forward to. It’s also usually the start of George having three days off in a row..alas, not this week.  He had the weekend off so it is back to work for him tonight. But I digress.  On to the challenge!

List 2 things you have to be happy about?  I live in Enid.  And I am still breathing.  I am not being facetious either. I seriously have never been happier in my life than i have been since moving to Enid, Oklahoma.  I have amazing neighbors, wonderful friends, a nice house, a happy husband. What more could I possibly want? And the fact that I am still breathing? Every day has been a gift since my heart attack. I died.  Yes, i actually did die and a wonderful surgeon brought me back. Each and every day since then has been a gift, and if I awaken I try very hard to see the good in the day.

granted I rant and rage about politics, religious zealots, incompetent boobs! BUT, I am so dratted happy that I am still here to do so.  the rages, rants, etc only last until I can write them down then dissipate into the mists.

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry? Yes, actually.  When I was a child I had a rock “collection” of semi-precious stones.  It was a gift from my grandmother.  As an adult, I also have a few special rocks…one from the top of Mt Musa, Egypt 

“burning bush” granite from Mt Musa, Sinai, Egypt

…the mountaintop from which Moses saw the promised land. I have one from the base of the wall separating Jerusalem into Palestine and Israeli halves.

I have one from the Red Sea, one from the Mediterranean, one from a beach on the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  But, the most special rock I own was given to me by Jake…..Jake is a poodle.

Jake and Gunnar

He is “owned” by my friend Angela, and Jake never gives anyone anything.  Except, Jake has given me two small sticks and a rock.  they are in my antique display case in a place of pride.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger? 

 I am a hugger.  I admit it. I hug everyone…unless they are putting out don’t touch me vibes.

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. 

My neighbors. I appreciate them enormously.  Always ready to help out at the drop of a hat.

  3. I have sticks from dogs too! Good for you for having a good appreciative attitude. I have died a couple of times too (electrocuted, choking, etc.) and I find it does change the perspective, if we are lucky–sort of like reading ahead in a book to see what might happen later on in it, but there is no way to really read beyond that point–it isn’t the end of the book.

  4. I love your pictures. Your dogs are adorable!
    I’m glad the doctor was able to bring you back. 🙂
    I’m generally more okay with women hugging me than men. Sadly, I’ve encountered far too many men who have creepy agendas.
