I'm old school

I talk on my cell phone, use the ATM, order online, text message, e-mail, blog, post on Facebook and tweet.  But, I still enjoy actual face time.

I like having lunch with a friend and catching up.  I like getting my cash from a bank teller.  I like trying on clothes before purchasing.  I like playing with electronics before deciding which we need/want.  I like throwing  the bowling ball down the lane.  I like hitting the ball with my tennis racquet.  I like going to a dance performance.  I like going to see the circus.  I like sitting at the kitchen counter, while my kids snack.  I like waking up to talk with my hubby, when he gets home from work.

Appreciation 2/15/13

I appreciate that Lauren apologized.  I appreciate that Mitchell made the time to see Chris' game.  I appreciate that Chris followed our rules.

I appreciate how Lauren's face lights up when she smiles.  I appreciate that Chris made his bed and tidied his room, before going to school.  I appreciate how Mitchell texted me when his schedule changed.


Most Catholics will fast or give up some luxury during the forty days of Lent.   My RCIA class chose  a variation during the Lent prior to our confirmation.  Instead of giving something up, we chose a daily commitment, in hopes of  self-improvement (I wish I could remember what I had chosen).  I think I will try this again.   I commit to appreciating my family.   And, to get me back into the blogging world, I'm going to commit to posting my appreciations.
