Bucket List

So, I finally made one.

Yep, I made a bucket list!

Now, I could have made it a lot more daring, but I didn't want to put stuff on there that will most likely NEVER happen. Like 'Ride an elephant'. Or 'Find out how many balloons it takes to life me off the ground.' Yes, I would love to do both of those but I have a feeling it ain't going to happen.

Dear Friend...

I made this... please don't take without asking!

Dear Brooke (aka my Loyal Servant):
You are so awesome, my friend. I seriously cannot wait until we have a photo shoot together one day :) Your emails thrill me so!
Love from your Highness,

Dear Elizabeth,
Hi, Lucy Twin. You and I are alike in so many ways, you know? Both of us <3 old movies and TV shows. Especially Lucy :) Thanks for being an awesome friend!
Love from Lucy,

Dear Rachel,
Greetings to you, Cary Grant lover. We may be about 4 years apart, but hey. We have so much in common. We both adore writing, old movies, and Fred MacMurray. So thanks for being my friend and writing partner! The next part of The Story Blog is coming soon. I'm sorry it's taken so long :)
Love from Dot, Herbert and Tip's co-author,

Dear Nine,
Hallo, liewe vriend! (To the rest of you: That was "Hello, dear friend!" in Africaans. At least Google Translate says it was.) It has been so awesome being friends with you. :) I enjoy our chats so much! *chicken hug* (Inside joke. Do not attempt to understand.)
Love from your US friend,

And you guys. Really? 1 more follower and I'll have 120! Thank you!! :)

And to start off your Thanksgiving just right, here is an awesome song.

Don't Rush

Maybe we want to watch TV.

Maybe we want to check our mail.

Maybe we just want to put another check mark on the to-do list.

Admit it. How many times have you rushed through your devotions, skimming the Bible chapter you were reading, just so you could go do something else? Did you actually meditate and understand at all what you just read?

Don't rush.

It would be better to read one verse and get something from it, than to read a chapter or two and forget what you read as soon as you leave the room.

God has given us 24 hours in a day. Let's not spend all of it on Pinterest or watching TV. Let's not spend all of it on blogger, either.

If you find yourself skimming or rushing through your devotions, stop and think. Why am I rushing? What is more important that reading God's word? Am I putting something else before God?

I'm working on this too, guys. Will you join me? Lets all try to read without rushing.

Quotes about Writing

These are some quotes I found about writers and writing. :)

I do it.
Pay attention!
Be careful... you could end up in a novel!
Show, don't tell!
We all get it... :)
And lastly, a picture of our favorite couple. This quote was when Anne found Gil after he had been reported missing during WWI.

Gilbert Blythe: You know, every day I would pick a different memory of you and play it over and over and over again in my mind, until every hair, every freckle, every part of you was exactly as I remembered.

Mary Lynn

I was sitting on the couch when I noticed a blue van parked in front of our house.

Me: "Where did that van come from?"
Mary: "From the lady visiting the neighbors."
Me: "Which neighbors?"
Mary: "The ones next door."

You don't say! :) This girl cracks me up sometimes :P
