Carded

What some people won't do to get me to blog!

My sweet friend Megan DiMaria carded me from her blog. Okay, Megan, I'm making good on this--I know I'm a couple days and a few dollars short but I'm working on my New Year's Resolutions and trying to put a few into effect before the old year is through. I should have answered before Christmas but those of you who know me can't be surprised I'm a little late with this. I'll just respond as if it's Christmas Eve :-)

And just so's you know, Ronie Kendig altered this CARDED meme to include a Spiritual Wish list so we can know how to pray for each other, both spiritually and physically. Sweet!

THE RULES:

1. Each player starts with 5 gifts that they would want for Christmas.
2. People who are "CARDED" need to write their own Blog about their 5 things & post these rules.
3. At the end of your Blog, you need to choose 5 people to get "CARDED" and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a COMMENT telling them they're "CARDED," and to read your Blog.

Since it is after the deadline, I won't be carding anyone this year but don't be surprised to see a reoccurrence for next year.

My Materialistic Gift/Wish List:
1. Diamond earrings (got'm and am wearing them!) Please note it says Materialistic--I can do altruistic also but just following the rules.
2. DVD's of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show (I got them for Phil--it was on his list, too)
3. New clothes (got lovely blouses and a sweater from my girls--note to self, remember to give them my sizes for next year)
4. Some shopping cash (thanks Mom, Norman and GrammaDear)
5. Bath/shower fragrance set (got a wonderful set from my eldest that smells so good!)

My Spiritual Gift/Wish List:
1. For us all to be together for Christmas with a focus on the true meaning of the Holiday (didn't work out because some people have to work--let's try this one again next year, please)
2. For all my children (that includes you, Juan) to draw closer to God this year.
3. To spend time again with my 101 year old grandmother and learn more from her example and devotion to God (I did).
4. To bask in the favor that God continues to pour out by spending time with my mom--too many people don't get one good parent, I have four I can say love me and it is all by God's grace that Mom came into my life. Thank You, Lord. I love you, Mom--good to be with you for another Christmas.
5. This one is secret, private but I may be tempted to share sometime in the New Year. Let's just say God is Gracious and Good.

And on that note, I wish you all a lovely, peaceful and joyous New Year full of an awareness of God's Abundant Blessings!

Rocky and Bullwinkle? Cool! I should rent that for my kids. They've discovered Tom and Jerry and just crack up.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas.

Well, well. Look who's blogging ;)
Where's the pic of the earrings?

Diamond earrings! Good for you. I wanted big, bright, shiny ones a few years ago. After I did some shopping around, I settled on big, bright, shiny cubic zirconias. LOL

Your spiritual wish list warms my heart.

Have a blessed 2008 dear friend.

A prisoner of hope,
Megan

Haven't gotten Phil to open the Rocky and Bullwinkle boxes yet--he's got the first 3 seasons--but I did go onto YouTube and there's tons of the Fractured Fairy Tales there. Had a laugh fest at my computer yesterday :-)
As for the earrings, they are small and match my necklace Phil gave me for our 25th wedding anniversary. I'd told him cubic zirconium would do. I just wanted something to go with the necklace but he really surprised me. Don't want to take them out :-) Guess I'll have to figure out how to take a picture of my ear--now that could be interesting.
Had another wish for my Spiritual list that I should have added--to have God bring Anthony home safe. And He did. He is home on leave until the 8th when he goes back to his base. At least he is home from Iraq.
