If you receive this award, you have to answer the following questions:
IF YOU COULD COME BACK AS AN ANIMAL, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
Okay, if you know me, you know that this is one tough question, so let me narrow it down to a puppy, a kitten, a tigress, a panda cub, a butterfly, an eagle, a hummingbird, a duckling and probably a few others.
SOMETHING YOU COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT
God and His goodness
WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST IN ANOTHER PERSON
Caring, compassion, generosity for others and for animals.
THE COLORS YOU TEND TO WEAR ARE
Go figure this out... mostly blues even though green is my favorite color.
THREE WORDS THAT DEFINE YOU
Compassionate, prayerful, loving.
A PLACE YOU WOULD TRAVEL TO
Here we go again with these tough answers...the whole United States, Europe, Australia, Puerto Rico, South America.
YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE FROM A BOOK OR MOVIE
I have many, but let's use the best, "Love one another as I have loved you."
SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO
Win the lottery and help alot of people, write a book, become a better and better person.
YOUR MAIN STRENGTH/FORTE
Keeping level-headed in emergencies small or major (then I can always fall apart afterwards!)
You are also supposed to send this on to seven "young" blogs and seven blogs of wisdom. the nice thing about something like this is that it enables us to get to know one another just a little bit better and these 'tags, you're it' are fun and finally, if you have blogger's block, instead of walking around the block (get it...hee, hee???), you have something instant and easy to post.
Even though some blogs that I frequent have been around for awhile and some are quite young, I like to think that they are ALL wise, so I choose:

Meanwhile, back in jokeville, some poor blonds are taking the heat...
Blond Prize Winner
A blond goes to the local restaurant, buys a small drink for herself, and sits down to drink it. She notices a peel-off prize sticker on the side of her cup while she is drinking. After pulling off the tab, she begins screaming, "I won a motor home! I won a motor home!"
The waitress runs over and argues, "That's impossible. The biggest prize given away was a stereo system!"
The blond replies, "No. I won a motor home!"
By this time, the manager makes his way over to the table, and he too argues, "You couldn't possibly have won a motor home because we didn't have that as one of our prizes."
Again the blond says, "There is no mistake! I won a motor home!"
The blond hands the prize ticket to the manager and he reads, "WIN A BAGEL."
Slot machine winner
A mentally challenged blond was standing in front of a soda machine outside of a local store. After putting in sixty cents, a root beer pops out of the machine. She set it on the ground, puts sixty more cents into the machine, and pushes another button; suddenly, a coke comes out the machine!
She continued to do this until a man waiting to use the machine became impatient. "Excuse me, can I get my soda and then you can go back to whatever stupid thing you are doing?"
The blond turns around and says, "Yeah right! I'm not giving up this machine while I'm still winning!"
I couldn't decide whether to go to Salt Lake City or Denver for vacation, so I called the airlines to get prices. "Airfare to Denver is $300," the cheery salesperson replied.
"And what about Salt Lake City?"
"We have a really great rate to Salt Lake—$99," she said "But there is a stopover."
"In Denver," she said.
~~~Lord, thank You for the blessings of the "prizes" we receive in life that have no monetary value whatsoever.
