The retreat in New Hampshire was beautiful and freeing at the same time.

QUESTIONS:

Why do we have such trouble telling our loved ones that we love them? Do you have that kind of communication issue with your loved ones?

I had only two memories of being told I was loved. When my kids were growing up I told them I loved them always. When they hit the teen years they got angry if I told them I loved them. It took quite awhile before they were back to being OK with it again.

 

Above question inspired by this short, poignant blog post:

Decorations for holidays?   Spirit lifters or pain in the butt?   Or a mix?  I loved to decorate for the holidays. Both my classroom and my home were always decorated every month. I gave away all the school items and gifted most of the home items. 

Do you donate to charities?  Of your time, do you feel money is the only true gift, or other?  (nod to Rory for this idea) I do donate money to charities. I also believe in gifting to people directly. That way I know that the person who has the need, gets the money. I would like to donate time when my health is better.

Are you too superstitious or  have you ever played with a Ouija Board?  I can’t think of anything I am superstitious about. I have played with a Ouija Board many times in my youth.

To see a great deal of autumn I must travel over an hour away. Oak Glenn has a wonderful village where you can purchase apple pies, apples, apple candy, apple jewelry, etc. 

 

Melanie explains all about the challenge here.

My Responses:  

What do you feel about charity really?  Should we give to charity and if we should, what should we give?  I guess I believe charity begins at home. I like to give to people I know. I don’t trust most organizations, too much money spent at the top. I do give to medical charities I believe in.
