FRIDAY FEAST TIME

FRIDAY FEAST

Appetizer: What are you proud of?
When my youngest daughter's husband died, she took over the reigns of his business, without ever working, and has managed to keep it successful.
Soup: What is the best thing you’ve ever won as a prize?
I'm having a brain freeze - I do not remember ever winning anything of value.
Salad: Name something you do that is a waste of time.
I watch too much TV.
Main Course: In what year of your life did you change the most?
I was 30 when my husband died leaving me with three children. I was completely changed forever.
Dessert: Where is a place you consider to be very tranquil?
This sounds so cheesy, but it's true: During guided imagery I created a tropical paradise with a pool, being fed by waterfalls trickling down the sides of steep craggy volcanic mountains; mists blowing gently, the scent of plumeria thick in the air; completely surrounded with palms, ferns; the soft call of exotic birds. The pond feeds into the ocean so a pair of dolphin resides within, returning to the sea on occasion. When we went to Kaua'i I found my pool minus the dolphins.

Here to pick up my meme.. BUT!

Your daughter is wonderful and I see why you're proud of her.

Um.. you won BBOTD (Grin.)

30 was so young.. I'm sure it did have a big impact.

Good Friday morning Gracie !

An appetizer to be proud of indeed ! And that is neat about the dessert - finding the dolphins !

Gracie, would you be willing to send me the code for how to get people to participate in something like your Thursday 13 ? I want to do it for my one kind act Wednesdays, and I don't know how ! Thank you !
It is when everyone's name shows up/their links as partcipating in it, and then you add a comment...

Oh Gracie, I loved this post. I was most taken with the Guided Imagery part. I was beginning to think I was the only one who had ever used it.

I was first given my CDs of Guided Imagery at Clevland Clinic ,prior to having surgery. I have used them many times since then. They are a great stress reliever.
