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 set an example for all of the humans.

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.

This is a little about SGT Keith Hale, the recipient of this years Mikefest donations. Thank you for writing this TiAnna – MRSGT Keith Hale joined the Army after 9\11 to stand up for the country he loves. 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. He still has many uphill battles, medically speaking, but will continue to soldier up. SGT Keith Hale medically retired on February 27th 2013.

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.

Hey what are you doing on May 4th come and support a great cause

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.

Tammye Honey

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.
