Daily Prompt: The meaning of love


stop by and see us

What does love mean to you?

by Scott Berkun on August 5, 2011

Topic #210:

What does love mean to you?
We talk about love all the time, but rarely do we sit down and think about what it is.
How our behavior helps us get more or less of the kind of love we desire.

How does platonic love differ from romantic love?
How does the love we get from a parent differ from the love we get from a friend?
Or a dog?
Is love a feeling or a set of behaviors?

This topic suggested by Timmer at Timmer’s blog.

There are so many forms of love.
Truly love should be unconditional no matter who or what it is directed to.

Animals love unconditionally no matter who their owner is.

They do not distinguish between gender or species, or race.

They set an example for all of the humans.

There are a lot more variations of love though:

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear TammyeHoney


pooky12

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear ____________________

by Erica on October 28, 2013

To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge and include a link to this post, to generate a pingback and help others find the challenges. Please make sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed on Friday, and in our monthly newsletter.

For this week’s writing challenge, channel your inner Abigail Von Buren. Experiment with the question and answer format. Taking inspiration from a question you’ve been asked recently, whether in conversation with a friend or sent in from a reader, don your best counselor hat and share your expertise.

Not up for kickstarting your career as an advice columnist? We’ve got a few more ways to help get you involved with this week’s focus on advice.

  • What’s the best, or worst, piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
  • You’re the most important writer in the world, and everyone will be tuning in to your blog to listen to the one bit of knowledge you most want to share. What is it?
  • Do you live by the advice you give? Sure, it’s easy to dish out opinions, but are you a pillar of your own beliefs?

I give lessons on Cooking, Crocheting, Sewing and Knitting on a regular basis.  I do not feel this is classified as advice.  It is simply someone who has worked the problem successfully at a prior time who is able to lend a helping hand to someone who has never walked that mile yet.

Helping a friend who is a new mother and is nursing her first baby my advice is very simple.  The baby will let you know when things are not quite right.  If things are flowing in a set pattern and routine then life is good.  The plumber never puts in new pipes if there is not a problem.

If a problem is not going to make a difference a year from now, perhaps it does not need to be a top priority on the list.  A lot of problems have a way of working themselves out on their own without doing anything but praying for the correct way for God’s will to be done.  I always to suggest to pray for three days on the same subject before making a decision.  This gives a person time to think with a clearer head and thought patterns.

Just thinking before you speak as to how it will have an effect on others will sometimes change the wording that would have otherwise been blurted out.

Remembering others and that they have feelings that can get hurt.  To never speak when angry and to bite the tongue if it is going to be a cruel comment will save on an embarasing moment later on.

What questions as my reader would you like to see answered here?

Submit your questions and I will be glad to honestly answer them for you.  (Or find a great source for your answer)

TammyeHoney’s Advice column is now open to her readers.

Bring on the questions….

I am ready and waiting..

Daily Prompt: Pressing On to Share The Love


pad2013 (1)

Daily Prompt: Press It

Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.

The very first one that comes to mind is a post by a regular that I read and it was really a great Poem that she wrote.

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/on-children-april-2013-monthly-peace/

The poem was very touching, well written and the message was one that was well worth a reblog.

The next one that comes to mind is a mom who shows her love of children through her blog…every step of the way.  She also shows her love of crafts on the blog.  Her latest blog was on her second child’s first hair cut.  http://momoftwosalums.com/2013/04/10/my-baby-boy-had-his-first-haircut/
 Through her writings, you can tell her overflowing love of her family.

The next must read is going to two bloggers actually because when I am hungry, I always go to these two sites to see what they or their guest bloggers are cooking for the day.  They never disappoint me and always have something great to offer:

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/  When he is not giving you a great recipe he is giving you a diced competition of four great blogging chefs who are competing with a recipe.

http://maggiesonebuttkitchen.com This gal is all about cooking and blogs or has guest blogs daily about food.

So that is my recommendations for the day…I have many more on my wall if you check that I actually recommend daily as I read them.

Now I am off to my A-Z challenge…I am on the Letter J so I am still going strong.

He has been married to his wife TiAnna for 10 yrs and they have 3 amazing kids Zach, Kaley and Nathan who is autistic. Keith 1st deployed with the 1/115th Shelbyville in 2005 for 15 months to TQ, Iraq, where he was a scout truck driver. His 2nd deployment was with the 278th HHT RFS to Mosul, Iraq and was now a truck commander for the scout truck (scout trucks go out in front of the convoy). Over the deployments there were many close calls. In June 2010, he was having some issues with dizziness and vomiting but he would push through to continue the mission. On June 5th, they were coming into FOB Spiecher there was a wreck and a lot of confusion. He fell from the back of the MRAP and received a brain injury and spinal nerve injury that caused damage to his right leg. He still carries the nickname deadleg.

Mikefest is a yearly event that has been created by Byron and Melissa Russell in remembrance of Michael Charles Russell. He passed away while they were on vacation at  Disney World on a ride.  He had an non-diagnosed heart condition.  Instead of mourning his loss, they now celebrate life each year by remembering him through this fundraiser for a different charity each year.
We would appreciate your support and prayers for this function to be a success.
Thank You for Hearing my plea.

Raw Footage of Miss Shelby


Thought I would share some raw footage of Miss Shelby so that her parents could get the photos once this hits my wall on Facebook.

It took me this long since we have been busy with Non Food Vendors for the Mike Fest 2013.

We have been making arrangements to give them information and have their baskets for donations delivered.

We are so honored that you are here and that you joined us…

Thank you again to her mommy and daddy Amanda and Jeff for allowing me to be such a part of her arrival.  Thank you Christy for being there at a vital time of need.

Thank you to a wonderful crew of nursing staff at the hospital who all worked together to help bring you to your mommy and daddy.

What a blessing she is.

Daily Prompt: Crying is it for fear, joy, sadness or pain?


Daily Prompt: Happy Happy Joy Joy

We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?

If you have been following my blogs at all I think this answer has been given over and over somehow through the daily prompts.

I would have to say welcoming Miss Shelby into the world was absolute true joy tears.

The mixed emotion tears was making the video for the Mike Fest 2013 in Dedication to the Russell Family.

It was an honor to make it and that brought happy tears, yet due to the emotional content that brought a different kind of tears.

It was made with a box of tissues.

Just to watch the mom and brother viewing the video for approval was a difficult time.

They were delighted with the content as mom cried throughout the entire video.

It was an honor to do both the video and welcome Miss Shelby into the world.  Both brought tears.

 

What has happened in your life recently to bring tears of joy?

Would love to hear from you.

Special Thank You to ????


I owe a special thank you to two different people for two different awards.  I was busy helping a friend get ready for her baby with sewing lessons then actually ended up in the delivery room with her as one of her coaches.  I have no idea who gave me these awards or what the rules are now…if you could refresh my poor exhausted memory on both counts, it would be fantastic.

At least I have a beautiful mom and baby to show for my efforts of not answering them…

Miss Shelby was well worth the effort to get her here… It was an honor to be a part of the process.

Daily Prompt: Competition Of Myself


Daily Prompt: Competition

What activity, task, or game most brings out your competitive streak? 

I would have to say that the making of a video in that each time I want it to be better.  I will stay up overnight if necessary to work on it to perfect it before I publish it.

I have a tendency to become OCD and Anal Retentive with the timing of the video until it is completed.

Last night’s video was no exception and then I had to blog about it as well before I could crawl into bed at 5 AM this morning.

We had not made a video, other than cooking video’s in a while.  This one was a near and dear to the heart one and was to two very special people that we felt deserved the video to be made.  Being certain that everything was in place for the video was crucial.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Theme of the Week is Future Tense


Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

Shelby at birth

For the past two days, Miss Shelby decided that she wanted to come into the world a week early.  Her grandmother is in Michigan and due out next week the day before she was due.    A baby comes when they want to.  Her wonderful parents, Amanda and Jeff asked me if I would like to join them in helping with the birth as a coach.  I was honored.

After an all night session of contractions between three to five minutes apart after my arriving at the hospital at 7PM, he water broke at 4AM.  They had been giving her Pitocin in her IV to help encourage the contractions and actually stopped it at one point during the night to try and slow them down.

Shelby had a tough time coming into this world as the umbilical cord was not only wrapped around her neck, it was wrapped several times around her body.  She obviously liked the comfort of the womb.  Being Joined by a wonderful RN friend of the group, Christy was a wonderful asset in the witnessing and assistance of this birth.  It was nice to have an extra RN in the room who was off duty.

Once out, she really made her voice of the future heard.  She is the future tense.  It was a pleasure to have been a part of this celebration.  To watch the proud father cutting the umbilical cord and be handed the baby with the mother was an absolute honor and a site that is not soon to be forgotten.  More photos will follow on my blog as they are processed.

If you would like to post a Weekly Photo Challenge, here is the scoop on what it is about:

From heartfelt hopes about exam results, or being noticed by that oblivious boy in your class, to wishes for a prosperous or healthy future, you can think of them as prayers and hopes  made manifest and left in public. In today’s challenge we want you to grab an image from your world that holds the promise or portent of the future. It could be:

  • As everyday as the experience of waiting for a bus or train.
  • As abstract as something that symbolizes  your ambitions or hopes for the future.
  • A note, prayer or promise jotted on a napkin or cross-stitched with exquisite tenderness.
  • The promise or portent of spring, sunrise, or storm in nature.
  • A street candid of someone nervously waiting on their date to arrive.
  • A piano falling from a third storey flat into the oncoming path of an adorable kitten. Or any other action about to take place.
  • Anything that involves the present and a hint of the future all in one frame.

We spend so much of our lives thinking back, or looking ahead, and even though a photo captures only one moment in time, with a bit of thought it can freeze the process of moving forward, or the promise of things to come. Your challenge this week is to seal one such moment in amber.

pickIn a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says FUTURE TENSE.

I’m looking forward to seeing your visions of the future, daydreams, and wishes frozen in time.

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag. You can also link to this post to create a pingback here and to encourage more people to participate.

Daily Prompt: Erasure or Not?


Daily Prompt: Erasure

by michelle w. on March 12, 2013

You have the choice to erase one incident from your past, as though it never happened. What would you erase and why?

Thanks for the great idea, Amba!

If we were to erase something that had happened in our past, how would it affect the rest of our past and our future?

That would be a dangerous thing to do.

I think I will pass on this thought as everything happens for a reason.  We learn (Hopefully) from our mistakes and we profit from learning them.

I realize that for one brief instant I might have my given wish.  With that would come a price.  If I had been granted That one thing, would I have two beautiful loving daughters with the grandchildren and their hubby and significant other one that they are with? Would I have met my new hubby who is wonderful?

All of this might not have happened if I had used that magic eraser and changed one little thing.

How do you feel about this subject?  I would love to hear.
