Rules: If you get tagged list 8 random facts/habits about yourself. After which you have to choose 8 others to tag, and to let them know by commenting on their blog.
1. I love to come up with random questions. Especially when good convo is running low. Such as, why are there not purple m&m's or why do most guys general have longer eyelashes than girls? hmm....
2. I like to try and predict whether or not someone is right or left handed without them telling me. By either seeing them write first or infering from which hand they wear their watch on, etc.
3. I don't drink soda. Water, lemondade, etc. or the drinks of choice. I do however drink energy drinks and coffee.
4. I actually enjoy donating blood. Not in some creepy weird way. I just like the fact that that simple act could help someone out.
5. I am not deathly but near deathly afraid of rats, mice, lizards, and frogs. I don't really enjoy the presence of spiders either.
6. I have the ambition of one day learning sign language.
7. I want to badly learn how to drive a stick shift. I don't know why.
8. My worst habit I must say is procrastinating, right up there with biting my nails.
I will tag Rachel, April, Denise, Ashley, and whom ever else I can think of when I see my friends list.
I hope everyone is enjoying the fall months. Missouri is beginning to get fridgid. Today I had frost on my car when I was leaving for school! I love the fall colors and cooler weather.
Until next time,
As some of you might have heard, seen on Facebook, or read on my cousin's pleonast my grandmother Bertha Behle passed away this past Thursday. I am sad that this entry has to follow the one I previously posted...
I have no words, I feel speechless and can only say that she was a wonderful wonderful woman. She knew how to take care of people and was so full of wisdom.
I just thought I would list some happy funtimes I had with her:
-going to the Mizzou game last fall and sitting with her on a bench watching the crazy crowd yell M-I-Z-Z-O-U!
-dropping my chicken wing into her coffee when we went to the state basketball games in Kirksville way back in 2000 and then hearing her drink the coffee and say "That's not too bad." lol
-watching her drift off to sleep watching a rainy day baseball game in Old monroe since we were so tired having been up since 4 am making breakfast for the players.
-having her tell many many years ago, possibly when I was in second grade, "That don't I just know that God will take care of me." when I was terrified during a thunderstorm at her house one night.
-Her German stuffing that was there everything Thanksgiving holiday and though many of us cousins were afraid to eat it/didn't like it we still expected it to be there.
-walking with her to countless baseball games, and basketball games and hear her being one of the loudest fans there.
-I will miss her organ playing, her stories of my grandpa, her scotch cookies that she made every holiday season, her presence in the assembly right in front of me, her crossword puzzles sitting all over the house, her hats, her knitting, and basically all in all I will miss her.
This entry may only mean something to those that knew her. But I felt like I just needed to write it down. I feel like in these past few days I have grown closer to my family, if that's possible, we are pretty close. I still can't help but think that she will come home from the hospital or just be on vacation.
But I believe with all my heart that she is in a better place. At the end when she was suffering and physically in pain I knew she wanted to be in a better place. Know there is no more pain, no more sorrow, and no more tears.
If I have one piece of advice, love those around you now not later, and never take for granted God's wonderful blessings.
"Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4
I hope this entry finds you all doing well. I hope everyone enjoys what is left of their summer.
My granny Behle went into the hospital late last week. She was so weak and when my aunt went to check on her she said that she was having trouble breathing. So my uncle Paul and aunt Martha took her to the emergency room and that is where she has been ever since. They hoped that she would come home today but the new news is that it might be Friday now.
My family, Granny, everyone appreciates the prayers on her behalf.
I went with my cousin April and Aunt Martha to see her on Sunday night after services. It is so weird to not see Granny Behle at services sitting right infront of me. I know Granny is prepared for anything that might come her way. But selfishly am I?
Her 89th Birthday is this coming June 28. She has had almost 89 gloriously healthy years full of watching 5 christian children grow up, 11 grandchildren sprout and grow, and has witnessed 3 great-grand kids come into this world.
I wish whatever remaining days she has on this earth peace and happiness. I want her to be happy and I know that the Lord's will will be done.
Thanks for listening and for all the prayers,
Today was no school and for the community college this is shocking. I really have not done much on this fridgedly cold day when I should be doing some homework....who is surprised honestly?
My cousin recently had a baby, and for a family as close as mine this is very exciting. I got to hold him on Sunday because I was first in line :).
My days are very busy with work and school. Yesterday I left home around 10:45 and I didn't get home till 9 and the day before that I left at 8:15 and I didn't get home till 8 pm. Pretty long days. So today when I slept in till noon I didn't feel to bad. :).
Our congregation is in the search of a preacher to help us do the work of the Church. All prayers are appreciated because I know this is a pretty stressful time for the elders and such.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful week. Keep warm fellow Missourians!
Not a lot has happened on my break, been pretty normal as far as breaks go.
Currently I am in Florida visiting my cousin, and some friends at FC. The weather is not much different from Missouri sadly enough. It is just more humid right now. I flew for the first time yesterday. That was interesting. I kind of felt like I was on a rollar coaster when we were taking off. It was a neat experience.
Well everyone have a safe week!
