Whenever it is someone's birthday, the song "This is the Day" runs through my head and I sing it unabashedly in that person's honour. Your birthday is a day the Lord has made so rejoice and be glad and in it! He certainly does! I love your dreams and I pray that they all come true. How awesome would that be?!

All I have had running through my head lately are various preschool songs, particularly "Look who came to school today, school today, school today..." sung to Mary Had a Little Lamb. You're welcome. ;)

Mine are definitely seasonal, too, with the exception of chocolate. As if chocolate could ever be out of season. In the fall and winter my comfort food is soup, with my all time comfort meal being roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy. If only I could make a roast like my dad does. I don't really have a comfort food for spring and summer, because I really just crave soup and then I don't eat it because I like to make it from scratch and it's too hot to do that. No wonder I love fall so much! I've been dreaming for the past two weeks of making soup. Is that pathetic of me or what?

The real reason I never started this meme is because I know I would never finish it. Although every time I read yours and Amanda's posts, I get an urge.

Acceptance letters?! Exciting!! I love my babies, furry things that are supposed to be in my house (not so much when they don't belong there!), my hubby, being able to pursue my passion, coffee (duh!). And currently the first day of school for said babies. ;)

I keep getting Katy Perry's California Girls stuck in my head - I don't need to repeat the infamous line that plays over and over either. Silly radio. ;)

My biggest dreams have always involved working with children. I try to find different ways I can do that, whether through serving in ministry or working. You would think with all the writing I do that would be my biggest dream, but it's not. I love doing it and it's fun, but when I picture what I am doing in 10 years, it inevitably involves me sitting with a bunch of little ones loving on them like Jesus does. I always love that visual in the Bible of children flocking to Jesus and crawling all over Him!

This is so hard - I let some "friendships" (I use that term very loosely!) go last year, but I still find I hang on to the hurts that caused me to need to let them go in the first place. And then I realized the other day that I was projecting those hurts on to others that had nothing to do with the whole mess. Praying for clarity and wisdom definitely helps - even if it is just me whining at God for days until I've gotten it all out and He can finally get a word in edgewise.

Mine is Flanna Kylea - I may have to get another dog so I can name her Flanna! :P

(((hug))) I understand. I can't stand Nov 11 - that's the anniversary of my Grandpa's death and it's Remembrance Day here (kind of like your Veteran's Day). It is all too much to handle on one day.

Oooh - Tuesday Tidbits is fun!! My province Saskatchewan is famous for being the birthplace of medicare, which is free health care for everyone in the country regardless of financial status. While it does have its cons (like the longest wait lists ever!), I really appreciate that everyone has access to the same quality of health care not matter what. Also, the father of medicare was Tommy Douglas, who was Keifer Sutherland's grandfather. So basically Saskatchewan is responsible for 24. You're welcome. ;) Oh, and our football fans wear watermelons on their heads.

I am so glad you are bringing back Pouring Out! I love the whole idea behind it. And don't let it discourage you - even though you may not have had a lot of people visibly participate, you have no idea of how many people it actually challenged who just kept quiet about it. ;) I love your heart - it is so beautiful!

Love Pilgrims. I think you should keep that! How about something like "What's on your mind?" for Tuesdays?

I'm with Tracy - can you just hurry up and tell us? :P You know I'm just teasing you, right? I love how you are taking the time to fully explain you new mission with this blog. But impatient me doesn't want to wait until tomorrow for more!

You ARE a part of my family, sweet Christy! I miss you, too. I'm starting to get the urge to write more again, so I know this bloggy break has been good - and almost over! And thank you for the award - you made my day! Question...hmmm...I've decided to ask you a silly one, because I suck at thinking of profound things. I leave those kind of questions to the experts. ;) So tell me - if you could be on any 80's sitcom, what would it be and of course, why?
