WWTK - This is deep stuff!


Photobucket

I'm joining in with Mamarazzi & Queso again this Wednesday for We Want to Know!

1. What is the best advice someone has ever given you?
To accept the things I cannot change. It's allowed me to let go and stop stressing about things that were extremely frustrating to me. Sometimes you just have to step back and accept that you've done all that you can do.

2. What is your greatest accomplishment?
Raising my kids. Through all the craziness and fun dysFUNction, they are turning out to be pretty awesome people.

3. Who do you admire?
My best friend, Danielle. She has been through so much in her life, but she never plays the victim role. She's a wonderful mother, and has a huge heart and loves very deeply, even those who have hurt her in the past. She's forgiving and doesn't hold a grudge.

4. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I would have more patience. I am a very impatient person, and it causes me a lot of frustration.
Also, no gray hair! ;-)

5. How do you want to be remembered?
As someone who helps those in need, without expectation of reward. I don't just mean the hungry or homeless; for example, the other day some people I had just met locked their keys in their car. So I used our AAA service to get a locksmith out there for them. They were so happy! I think helping our 'neighbors' and taking care of one another is what life is all about. And that includes animals as well.

I have to accept things I can't change too. The thing is to look and make SURE you can't change them... then move on! Happy Wednesday.

No gray hair would be fantastic! I hate the expense of keeping it at bay. I have no doubt you've done a wonderful job in raising those kids!

I am the same I need to accept things I cannot change, it's really hard for a control freak like myself!

I could use some patience, especially at the end of the day.

Brandy@YDK said...

my patience well dries up at night. i really really try to stretch it out.

Jill said...

Ahh patience...I lack it...What I'd give to be more patient!!

Daffy said...

Patience....hmph...p is a stupid letter. :O)

Nadine Hightower said...

very good advice!

Hopes@Staying Afloat! said...

I hear you about patience! I wish they sold it in jars in the store. It would be so much easier to buy than to come up with it on your own.

Helene said...

I wish I had more patience too. Your BFF sounds incredible!!!

And good for you on helping those people out. I'm a firm believer in karma!!

Mrs. Marine said...

Ha! Totally agree with #4. I used to have a lot of patience. NOT anymore! My children lost it, LOL!

Aloha! Mrs. Marine
& the Tiny Troops

Unknown Mami said...

I think you are probably more patient than you give yourself credit for.

MrsJenB said...

I love your last point - that was so generous of you. I'm sure your kindness will come back around tenfold!!

Crystal Escobar said...

I can totally relate to #1 and #4.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Good questions. I like your answers and being a good person is so awesome!

Helping people sure can put a smile on many faces. I too feel great satisfaction when I've been able to help another person. Happy Thursday.
