Monday Morning Meme

Hi all, another week is just beginning and it is time for yet another weekly installment of the Monday Morning MeMe!! Karen asks the questions(in blue) and my answers follow(in black)!

1. When and how often do you pray?
I need to pray more often, but I struggle with my faith from day to day. I make sure to pray when a friend/family member asks for prayers for a family member or friend regardless of the situation. I pray when I am scared for one of my children or a friend's child or if they are having surgery etc.

What motivates you to pray?
I am motivated to pray whenever I feel something is completely out of our hands and only in God's. He makes those decisions for us and I want him to know I am listening.

2. You’re giving the keynote address to the graduating seniors of a high school today. What’s your advice to them?
You are not the center of the universe. Helping people will get you farther than hurting them. Never hesitate to learn to do something new, however small and silly it may be or absurdly basic. Do what makes you happy. Don't live your parents' dream for you. At the end of the day it's your life, not theirs.

Do what feels right and make your own mistakes! If you don't, you will always regret not doing everything you always wanted to do. Don't sweat the small stuff. Life is too short to be worried all the time. Love everyone, love yourself, stay positive, keep dreaming and keep learning.

3. Which musician and/or band do you think is past their prime? Who do you think should hang up the mic and musical instruments and call it day?
Seriously, any band associated with a reality show should shut it down.

4. What photos are on your camera right now? You know, the ones that you haven’t downloaded or had developed yet? Please share a few of those photos with us.

These are a few photos from last night after our long day at Chuck E Cheese. lol

This is from last night and it is what happens when you leave two almost teenagers to their own devices until after 2am. His room was a freaking mess and the sheets on the mattresses disappeared. They are supposed to pull the bottom mattress out to sleep on it, but Lyric decided just to crawl right on in!! lol I hope he did not hit his head when he woke up!
