Reminders, Random Thoughts... or Confessions!

Last Day for The Bonnie Hunt Show Give-away entry...Go here. We will draw tonight at 5:00 pm and announce tomorrow morning, Wednesday, October1, 2008...hopefully bright and early...we'll see how it goes! Ronda's Rants is very flexible! We don't believe in writing anything in stone!

Brenda from Queen of Good Intention's has tagged me. That means I have to tell you seven random things about me.

1. First off...I am not flexible ...that is a lie...I admire people who are flexible and take things in stride. I do not. But, God is working with me!
2. I have been forgiven and I have forgiven and it is a lot of work and I struggle with accepting forgiveness, asking forgiveness and being a forgiving person. But, God is working with me.
3. I am an Olympic worrier...not warrior...I try very hard not to be the Eeyore of our family but I still struggle...that and swearing like a drunk sailor in a foreign port-of- call! God is working with that as well, if only I would try harder!
4. My faith is very important to me...God has done things in my life, that are really miracles, things I wouldn't have thought possible!
5. My children are happily married or engaged and that has given me more joy than I can express. I have the peace that comes from knowing they have a love that will endure their whole lives.
6. My Hubby and I have a strong marriage but not always peaceful and for years I have envied people who seem to have a even keel marriage, while mine has been stormy! But, through our marriage difficulties my Hubby and I have grown in our faith and love for God and each other. This is one of the many miracles I spoke of in #4 and the struggle he and I share in #2. But, God is still working with me.
7. Recently, in the real world someone talked about my blog in a complementary way and wanted to give my blog address out in a public forum! I declined not very gracefully. It shook me in a way that doesn't make sense. It is public domain anyone can read it and I am aware of that however...I immediately thought of deleting it the moment I got home...I am wondering why I felt/feel that way...I am pondering this and God is working with me! I am sure I will blog about it... before I delete the whole thing...Tee Hee!
If you feel like being tagged...you are tagged otherwise keep running!

I want to be talked about in a complimentary way!!! But I could never go public either because the real world thinks I am smart and close to perfect. So many people would be crushed to know the truth! HA!

Ronda's Rants said...

You ARE talked about in a complimentary way! I am still thinking about why this shook me up!

Rhonda said...

Hmmm. I would love to hear why you were upset about that. Isn't it a good thing that they complimented your blog? And isn't the internet a fairly public place?
I think that even though you chose to decline, you should be flattered.
And try not to worry so much. It's good for the weight issues, but not so much for the skin. Not to mention your tail might fall off. lol

I would feel the same way I think... i realize my blog is out there in the public, but there's something about having someone make my blog known that would make me feel like I was standing in the middle of my high school gym, naked.

I think I would feel the same way about the idea of my blog being publicly given out. I know that everything I write IS public, sure, but I don't know very man people who are going to go to the effort of googling me on he off chance I mich possibly somewhere have a blog; that way, I can still keep it fairly under wraps. It would ruin it completely were EVERYONE to know!

What an interesting list. We are all a work in progress.....good thing God is patient with us. Some of us (me) are more pigheaded than others.

Don't ever delete your blog...you can lock it down and make it private...but you may one day regret deleting it if you did....you've got hours and hours of work into it!!! Oh, and please don't make it private either. ;)

Lauren said...

Let them write about you and please don't remove your blog!

Jennifer said...

OMG don't delete your blog Ronda!! I have not posted a link to my blog on any forums, etc. so I know where you're coming from. I also haven't told a lot of people IRL--just a couple of friends--I'm afraid I'll always be censoring myself if a lot of people I know are reading it.

I love your Olympic Worrier not Warrior comment. That's me, too!! I also understand your last one. Sometimes it is easier to be peeped in on by strangers than by those you see all of the time - or even some of the time. I feel judged by those who I have contact with. I almost feel befriended by the strangers.
