Will you join me for Tuesday Tea? Let's get to know each other! I'd love to visit, come stay a while, I'll listen, leave your answers in my comments or post your own post answering the questions! (but remember to tell me so we can come visit!) Maybe someday I'll know how to do a linky join in thingy, but not today.
1. What is your phone's ring tone?
My answer is in the post before this post.
2. Would you ever have plastic surgery?
Hmmmmm....anyone who knows me and has seen me in person, knows I don't need it to enhance anything, if you know what I mean. I might need it to dehance those things though. No, I truly believe that God gave me this body and we should grow old gracefully. I'm not about fake. I don't even color my hair. I was thinking about my mother and how her hair is actually blacker than mine and she has no gray. I think she would look beautiful with gray hair. (but that's not plastic surgery....so I'll try to keep on topic) I do think plastic surgery is ok for corrective things, like accidents, or birth defects or things that. Or even C-section tummies. I think insurance companies should cover those things. I mean, my pants are a whole size bigger because of my tummy. My doctor told me it doesn't matter how many exercises I do for my tummy, only surgery will fix it. That was after my 3rd C-section, and after I religiously, worked on an ab machine (only mine was not portable) for a whole year, every day, with no results, except a bad back. So, maybe after I'm unable to have babies anymore, I'd think of getting my tummy shelf removed. So, I guess my answer is no plastic surgery for my face but yes for my tummy, maybe if insurance covered it.
3. You are having a bad day, who do you want to talk to?
I want to talk to Jesus.
I have that feeling and I want to run to Him in the Blessed Sacrament, in our Adoration chapel and cry:
Jesus Help me!
In every need let me come to You with humble trust saying: Jesus help me! In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations: Jesus help me! In hours of loneliness, weariness and trials: Jesus help me! In the failure of my plans and hopes, in disappointments, troubles and sorrows: Jesus help me! When others fail me, and Your Grace alone can assist me: Jesus help me! When I throw myself on Your tender Love as Savior: Jesus help me! When my heart is cast down by failure, at seeing no good come from my efforts: Jesus help me! When I feel impatient, and my cross irritates me: Jesus help me! When I am ill, and my head and hands cannot work and I am lonely: Jesus help me! Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls and shortcomings of every kind: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help me and never forsake me.
4. At a movie theatre which arm rest is yours?
When I'm with my husband (so very rarely), It's the side he's on, I lean and snuggle with his arm. When I'm with my kiddos, it's whichever arm works best, I'm always in the middle of them!
5. If you had to go back in time to change one thing, if you had to, what would it be?
I really had to think about this one. My first thought was the ultimate worst thing that happened to me, but that turned out to be the best thing too, by God's Grace. So I wouldn't change that thing. Then, I kept thinking about things and what thing has happened in my life that didn't have a chain of events to happen because of it. It took some thinking, but I'd have to say my diabetes. I see no good from it. I know it's my cross and I'm happy to have whatever cross God gives me, but if I had to pick something that would be it. Being a diabetic for 31 years now, it is 2nd nature and is not really something I think about much. It's a lot of work when I'm pregnant and I think it makes losing weight a struggle. (too much insulin) I have to test my blood before working out and eat if it's low and wait if it's too high. It's never always perfect and it's a constant reminder of my imperfections. I can't skip meals and I can't eat too much. It's also very expensive, we spend about $150/month on insulin and supplies. (and we have good insurance) All I can do, is take the best care of myself now, and take whatever God gives me. I believe that every bad thing has it's reason and God turns it into good. The only good thing I can see out of my diabetes is my offering up everything for Him. I give it to Him. I accept it and give it to Him. So if I had to pick something that would be it, but I take this cross over so many other crosses out there.
