What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

Sleep in then enjoy a delicious breakfast that someone else cooks for me.  Lounge in my PJs reading a good book, slip down to the lake for a few hours of peaceful solitude, then treat myself to a massage and pedicure.  Ahhh…

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?

A girl named Laura F. I met when I was in tenth grade.  She was the first person who reached out to help me in my bumbly teenage mess.  She was also the first person to issue me a vehement come to Jesus ultimatum when I was making a huge mistake.  Laura F. is the reason I believe teens need straight (sometimes tough) talk with both feet firmly planted in reality.  No ostrich heads in the sand around here.

List your favorite toys or games as a kid?

Twister, Battleship, The Game of Life, and hopscotch.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

One of the things I love so much about the lake is the bird feeders.  I could sit there all day watching the birds’ intricate dance between trees, ground, and perch.  Last week it finally hit me – why on earth don’t I have a bird feeder at home?  I couldn’t come up with a good reason (other than DUH), and BrightSide put it up outside the kitchen window for me.  This afternoon I watched a tiny bird perched, tossing aside three seeds for every one he ate, and he had a whole crew hopping from fence to grass behind him.

Cee’s Share Your World is part of Monday’s joy.
