Eight Things and an Award

8 Things
I haven't done a tag in awhile and my friend Michele decided she wanted to get to know me better so she tagged me with this fun tag.

Here's how to do this 8 THINGS thing:
Mention the person that tagged you.
Complete the lists of 8's.
Tag 8 of your wonderful bloggy friends.
Go tell them you tagged them!

8. Things I look forward to:
1. Spending a week with Mom and Dad in Texas in June
2. Seeing our new home
3. Seeing my son serving Jesus
4. Starting the ministry He brought us here for
5. The glory God is going to get when my GAL case comes to an end
6. Moving from size 16 to a loose 14...and then seeing the process continue!
7. Finishing the basket I started and doing another one
8. Looking back on our time in the camper :)

8. Things I did yesterday
1. Went to Ready Med because of the pain in my jaw
2. Found out they thought I was having problems with Bells Palsy (I don't think so)
3. Listened to someone tell me they liked the color of my hair..that made me feel good. :)
4. Made some changes to my the little ants
5. Took plenty of pain meds and yucky steriods
6. Talked to a buddy on IM
7. Ate too much
8. Bought a little pot and planted basil in it. (yum!)

8. Things I wish I could do
1. Write the book that is in my head
2. Wear a size 12
3. See the hearts of the DSS workers I am working with blown over by the GLORY of God.
4. Touch the pain in the hearts of those I deal with and see God heal it.
5. Hear the audible voice of God tell me what our future holds.
6. See certain friends turn back to God
7. See what our future holds
8. See satan squashed for what he is doing to my GAL family

8. Shows I watch
1. Charles Stanley...In Touch
2. The Today Show
4. Chuck...sometimes
5. Oprah if I think she is speaking of something I think I need to be aware what she is is a quick way to see where society is heading.
5. That is about it......I haven't been a big t.v watcher lately

Ya'll know I don't tag if you want to do this I would love to come and read.
Don't forget to come back and tell me.

One more thing...while I was on break a sweet friend passed an award my way.
I promised to pass it on so this seems to be a good time to do it.

This little sweet award was given to me by Shirley of Ma Ma's Place. Thank you Shirley...I was touched!
Here is what is said about the recipients of this award.

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.”

Enjoyed reading your meme. Sounds like you are really busy. I'm sorry you are experiencing pain and that it is taken care of soon.

I'm not much of a tv watcher either and now that I can't sit at the computer for long to do my writing, I'm a bit out of sorts.

Congratulations on receiving the award and also for losing the weight. Great job.

Take care. Praying for you and your GAL family.

Mary / Mariah said...

Thanks Sharon , I have a shaddy and a really sunnie arie . Let me know if you need shaddy plants help . Thanks for the Kind Aword

Denise said...

I enjoyed your lists, and I love the cute little ants on your header. Great weight loss sis, proud of you. Congrats on your award, and thanks for passing it along. I love you.

Mary / Mariah said...

I'll get the aword later , don't have time to tag & my eye isn't so good so I read and type as little as I can . Every thing goes slow when your eye sight is not good .
I'll be having surgery the 14th of may .

The weight lost is the same I am hope for in the next few weeks. I want to go from a 16 to 14 because all my summer clothes are 14 and this winter I gained to much.
