Present #11 . . . 

To enter:

you need to answer the question of the day.

Question Day 11:
What single thing
can you do this year
that will matter most in 10 years?
In eternity?

My Answer:
Hum . . last day and I need to think on this one?
Eternity is pretty easy . . .
recycle to save the planet.
Now for 10 years,
besides recycling for eternity,
it would have to be
to love my family
in a way
that makes them
know they are loved
without judgement.

  1. HAPPY B-DAY!!!
    I loved your B-day giveaway.. I didn't answer the questions 'cause I live in Chile and sending something here would be pretty pretty expensive.. but I enjoyed all questions and answers..
    Enjoy your day...!!


  2. Happy Birfday to you, Happy Birfday to you, Happy Birfday dear Paula, Happy Birfday to you!!! Much love! xoxoxo

  3. I did donate to locks of love...always. :o) The smaller, fuller prettier hex is the one I'm doing. I tried one in yarn then in the #3 thread and I love it. They're quick and easy to do. :o) I love working with #3 too. 10 is really hard for me to get a good grip on.

    I keep forgetting to see what that treat's name is for Indy. They're really small. Two look like paws light brown with dark brown spots and dark brown with light brown spots. And the other is a small filet mignon tasting one. They come in these carry-all kind of bags. I can see the bag, can't remember the name. I'll try to look at them when I get home tonight. xoxo

  4. Happy Birthday! What a fun celebration we've all had together!

    What can I do that will matter in 10 years? Love my hubby and my son. Cherish them and enjoy them rather than be selfish with my time. I hope that makes a difference in the next 10 years!

  5. Happy birthday Paula - I have been thinking about you all day. Hope today was everything you wanted it to be!

    Your question for today bothered me. I couldn't think of anything meaningful as an answer. I recycle - I keep the heat down - I am trying to make my carbon footprint smaller. All of those things didn't seem personal enough. Finally, I arrived at my answer. I will be kind. Maybe one kind act that might not seem much to me but might be everything to someone. Driving more carefully - I might save my life or someone elses. I'm sure all family members will be grateful for another day with their loved one.

    I'm going to keep this question in my mind. It's something I need to ask myself everyday. Thank you for such a thought provoking question.
