Most folks say they WILL celebrate because of family. I am actually driving to northern MI in the morning for thanksgiving with my family. Last time I did that was 1993. Usually I'm content to stay home, watch the Lions lose, and take a nap.
If I get a chance, I'll pop on-line & say hello. Yes, they finally have the internets up there.
You would HATE being my roommate. I'm on the top floor and I kill 5 or 6 spiders a week up here.
There was a baby snake in the entrance way at work last week. It was cute. But I had to go around the building and use the loading dock entrance because I'm completely terrified of them. I couldn't even just step over it.
You've done more than grow. IMO. You've accepted, and taken control. You are in a position of strength, not fear.
I don't even grab a tissue anymore, just grab & flush the buggers. (Of course I wash my hands LOL.) I secretly think they survive the flush and go on to live in a spider colony somewhere by the waste water facility.
We'll hook lyrics up with an electric spider swatter with a nice loooong handle.
My biggest fear is fear itself because to fear and be scared is to be un-confident about a situation, it is to be worried and feel threatened. Ultimately this fear is the loss of my confidence, to stand in a place of uncertainty knowing that their is nothing I can do.
But what i certainly do not fear is losing my loved ones or dying for death is not the end. And failure why fear that if you fail oh well try again and if you succeed well done!
Great Question, i thought: wow: i'm new here ..but this caught my eye. I'm reminded of this: "The Fear, of the Lord, is the begining of Wisdom". So guess one might say, that this New "Kid" on the block, fears the Lord!
It is a terrible thing, and I do fear it. Not only for myself but others also. I fear getting it and being placed somewhere not so nice and being mistreated and abused. It happens. God bless those who choose to take care of their loved one's until the end as my late mother-in-law did like Nancy Reagan.
