someone's consolation prize.
Pearl: So profoundly true, my friend~
...this is the teacher coming out in you, isn't it? ;-)Okay, here goes...I am not ---old, wrinkled and green for nothing!! I feel like a million dollars.
HOOTIN ANNI: Ha!!! You are so right!
"I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!" - John Merrick (from the David Lynch film The Elephant Man, 1980)
Shady: Amen! And thank you for bringing that great movie to mind this morning~
I am not your mother. How many times do I have to remind you?
Linda: I can so relate!
I am not opposed to eating doughnuts for dinner...
I'm not even opposed to eating doughnuts for breakfast! (:
Linda: Now I've got doughnuts in my mind!
I am not tall. I don't think I'll ever get over this!
Lydia: Sometimes I feel like Gigantor next to some of my more diminutive friends if it helps~
I am not tall either. But I would wear heels, just for your benefit Shelly! You might have to catch me if I wobble in them though, as my husband did once in Wally world:)
Jenny: Even when I'm 80, I'm going to be wearing heels, and please join me! We'll wobble together~
Kelley: Love it!
I am not going to let someone else's negative mood affect me.
Nonnie: Absolutely! You are the mood setter, not them.
Rum Punch: I have been called it from time to time, but I fully embrace my sanity, too!
I am not arrogant. I am also not antagonist. I am not a push over either.
Munir: And that's why I like you so much!
I am not a fan of bitter cold weather...bring on spring!
Alica: I wish I could give you some of our beautiful weather- highs in the 80's today....
Dear Shelly, I am not a believe in the importance of differences. I do believe in looking for what connects us. By the way, I left a comment on your January 6th blog. It looks like you and I took a breather from blogging about the same time, but you came back a week earlier than I. The important thing is that we both came back! Peace.
Dee: I'm so glad you're back! It is good to take a breather now and then. I headed back to the earlier post- and thank you!
Dang it, Shelly, this is hard! I have typed and deleted, over and over.I am not ... finished ... I am not a finished product. It continues to surprise me, in late middle age, how much I am still learning and changing. Some people are adults at an early age. Some days I feel like I will never be one.
jenny_o: It is hard, and that's why I haven't put mine in yet! I totally agree with yours- I don't know if I'll be a grown up even if I reach 100.
I am not . . . I am not . . . I am not lifeless. I decided on that because X used to tell me to get a life. I had one all along.Love,Janie
Janie: Shows how clueless he was. You are one of the most life filled people I know.
Stop already! You're so nice.
Janie: :) It's true~
Sherry: No ma'am- your kids and your pets keep you going!
Bossy Betty: And may I say again. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you~
I am not...too old to accomplish something important.
Stephen: So true!
someone who stops aiming higher.
Janette Dolores: Whoohooo!!!
shy, a quitter, a pessimist, logical, a redhead, thin, wealthy, a lover of things, a vegetarian, a twin, an only child, an uncle, a father, a brother, a nephew, a painter, a librarian, or a horse.
Carol: And I am not without admiring laughter and a smile after reading this!
Young; but I am not dead yet.
vanilla: The same here!
I am not a follower.
Pat: You are a trail blazer, as y'all's pictures prove!
Cute idea, Shelly.I am not going to stress or worry this year like I've done in previous years, but really try to trust God more.betty
Betty: And that is a wonderful, freeing thing!
going to complain about my knee because now the pain is in my shoulder.
Linda: Oh, I hope the one in your shoulder disappears!
Dearest Shelly;"I am not TINY in my heart." Haha, I had been teased my tiny physics (sometimes still am) . When I was young, I wished to say it out loud p;) Lots of BIG WARMTH from my heart to my dear American friend from Japan, xoxo Miyako* PS> SO sorry my belated comment lately. My husband had a bit of cold, but got better now(*^_^*)
orchid Miyako: We are measured by the size of our hearts, and you, my dear friend, are a giant in that! I do hope you and your husband are feeling well~
I agree, Miyako has a beautiful, big and delightful heart.
And I'm so glad she shares her heart so freely with us!
What are YOU not? I am not cool.It's really humbling actually. I'd like to think I used to be. But now, I'm older, have 6 kids, priorities are different, I guess.I'm OK with it. Someday I'll be a cool grandma. I don't have to be a cool mom.
Jamie Jo: I think you are uber cool, in all the right ways. And you will also definitely be a cool grandma one day! Hmmmm....I am not feeling old yet!
You are not old...
Jamie: Thank you- my heart tells me I am 16! :)
Jo-Anne: What a great quality!
Saimi: I more a spur of the moment gal, myself, too~
Sandie: And that's a wonderful thing!
Dawn: With all the wonderful things you cook, I wouldn't expect anyone in your house to ever be!
a fabulous cook....
Sue: I enjoy cooking, but I'm probably a better eater than I am a cook...
a procrastinator! Lol, I am!Nas
looking forward to my critique group tonight. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Right???
Theresa: Yes, but not pleasant, I'm sure!
...sure that laundry will get folded tonight. I think I'll read my book instead!
Amy: I always think that's the better choice!
a stickler for bedtimes and an enforcer of rules. If my children ever want to snuggle with me at later and later hours, I let them, because the laughter that comes in the moments before bed is sometimes the only laughter I hear all day.
Jenny: Amen to that- I am the same, even though my kids are now older!
I am NOT going to give in, no matter how difficult the circumstances. I WILL beat that damn level 245 in Candy Crush...... some day!xx Jazzy
jazzygal: Defeat Candy Crush! Yes!
Invisible anymore. I do matter!(I think I stumbled upon this blog at just the right time for me!) x
Cassandra Louise: Hooray for you! Also, so glad you stopped by- I"m headed over to yours~
I am not waiting. Not sure what I am not waiting for, but I am a little impatient. Maybe I should wait:-)
The Chicken's Consigliere: Waiting is so hard! Unless I'm waiting at the dentist's.
I am not fighting my body like I used to--LOL! My body is the boss of me and has been for over a decade now. I have adapted to that and am much more at peace with that fact than I was several years ago. I am content. Sometimes restless...but content. :)
Rita: And contentment is a great gift~
I am not not.
Rubye Jack: Bravo!!!
As Sherry said, "I am not bored." There is so much to do in this life. Also, I am not afraid of aging; just as long as it fits my age! :)
Anita: Amen to that, my friend!
Along These Lines: True!
I love to hear from you! I also love to comment back.
