Versatile Blogger Award

I want to thank Mystic Circle for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  I appreciate Mystic Circle for honoring my blog.

Rules for the Award

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and write a post about it.
  2. Share 7 things about your Self.
  3. Pass the award on to 10 to 12 bloggers you enjoy, link to their blogs, and let them know you nominated them.

7 Things about Me:

1.  I wrote and probably will write again for Yahoo Voices under the name  Genie Walker.  I have a lot of reviews of books, food and products, southern humor, spiritual essays, poems, recipes, and whatever else came to mind.

2. I have only owned four cars.  The car I currently own, I bought used in 2003; the one before that I had 13 years before trading it in.

3. My father had my name picked out before he even met my mother.  The man wanted girls and he was blessed with two daughters.

4.  Regina is the name my father gave me; it means queen.

5. I enjoy quotes.  Up to this point I have rarely used a quote in my blog posts, but I take much pleasure in reading quotes from all cultures and time periods.  It tickles me that the truths of our earthbound life is unchanging and known all over the world.

6. I notice colors.  As a child, I noticed that when couples wore contrasting colors that their relationship was on rocky ground or they could be temporarily ticked off with each other.  Next time you see a happy couple, notice what they are wearing.

7.  I’ve never been called graceful. I run into doorways all time.  If there is a piece of furniture sticking out – I will run into it.  If there is a pair of shoes in an empty room – I will fall over them.

One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you to Colour The Day, who nominated me for One Lovely Blog Award.  I am tickled that my blog is appreciated and considered lovely.

  1. Give generous thanks to the blogger that nominated you
  2. Write Seven things about your self
  3. Make a list of 15 bloggers you admire and let them know how awesome they are!

Seven Things about Me:

1.  The first word I said was “RC.”  I’m sure when my parents got over their disappointment that I didn’t say “Mama” or “Daddy” first, they had a laughing fit.  For those of you, who wouldn’t have a reason to know what this is – RC is the name of a soft drink.  The first word I spelled out in first grade was “Pepsi,” another soft drink. My teacher wasn’t amused, but my parents were.  They celebrated by buying me an ice-cold Pepsi.

2.  Speaking of soft drinks, I used to addicted to them.  This past April was my nine-year anniversary of being soft drink free.  I would love to say I have broken my addiction, but I still on occasion crave a soft drink.  However, I am strong-willed and I refused to get sucked back into that addiction.

3. I love wearing dangling earrings and have many, many of them.  I store my earrings in my bathroom by hanging them from wire shelving.  Often my friends have a hard time leaving the bathroom, because they are admiring my earrings.

4.  I love rocks.  When I lived in Louisiana in a place that was sadly lacking in rocks, I had a hard time dealing with that.  So whenever I visited relatives in Tennessee, I would bring back a bucket of rocks back.  I love holding rocks and feeling their vibration.  (Everything on this planet including us is made of energy and energy has a vibration.)

5.  I have trouble picking out my favorite of anything.  I don’t know if this is a defect or just a reflection of living in the moment.

6.  My main job as a kid was to mow the yard.  I loved it for several reasons:  I was outside, I would make up stories and songs as I mowed the yard and I got to wear my mowing outfit, which was a knee-length cotten forest green dress and my straw hat that I added different colored hair ribbons to so they dangled down the sides of the hat. For some reason this outfit was my child-self’s of the perfect mowing outfit and I wouldn’t wear any part of it unless I was mowing.

7.  My mother had 13 siblings (only one uncle still living) and my father had four siblings; most of my aunts and uncles had children.  I have a ton of cousins.   There are so any that I haven’t met most of them.

Trust

 

Do you have trust issues?  You may be more trustful than you realize.  Even the most distrustful of us, display trust in others often. Don’t believe me? Let me tell you my point of view.

I have pondered over the concept of trust for years and I have had the insight that we are displaying trust each and every time we go from point A to point B. Think about it.  Whatever way we are traveling, whether it be bicycle, vehicle, wheelchair, skates, or our own two feet, we are trusting that others using the same pathway, road or highway will stay in their part of the route.

At least I know I trust. I wouldn’t be able to leave my home and go anywhere, if I didn’t trust that everyone one else would do their best not to run over me.  My part of the trust deal is to do my best not to run over anyone.  Accidents happen not because a lack of trust, but because accidents happen. We are all human and well, we make mistakes.

In the past I was troubled by those who don’t feel the need to follow the rules of the road.  I took it personally and thought they were breaking my trust.  I just had an insight that these people who run the red light, or turn left from the extreme right lane are displaying the ultimate trust in us. When they do these unexpected things, they know that we will watch out for them. They trust us to keep them safe.

Have I convinced anyone that we trust others more than we knew?

Life is good!  God is great!  All is right in my world!

Blessings,

Genie
