We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Random Dozen

1. Describe the best sandwich in the world, according to you.
A sandwich made by someone else.  Preferably served with fries and a diet coke in a place that I don't have to clean up when I leave . 

2. Which inspires you more: a good conversation, a song, a book or movie?
3. What is your favorite board game?
One I can win.  
4. As you grow older, are you more or less patient with small children?
More patient because they aren't mine.  Praise God.

5. Name one item you never let yourself run out of.
I can't think of anything.  Most people will say toilet paper or diet coke or peanut butter M&M's but I regularly run out of stuff.  Important stuff like toilet paper, diet coke and peanut butter M&M's as well as toothpaste, acid reducer and dish soap.  
6. Do you agree with Tennyson's assertion, "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?"
Yep.  Take a risk.  Put yourself out there--good things happen.  So do bad things.  Do it anyway.

7. Name one national treasure or monument that you have visited.
Gee.  I don't think I have been to a national treasure or a monument.  But when I grow up I am going to Mount Rushmore and then to the Grand Canyon. 
8. Which is more painful, to be disappointed in someone else or to be disappointed in yourself? 
Since it's all about me....disappointed in myself.  I just hate it when I do something that I know I could have done better, handled differently or said it kinder, gentler way.
9. What makes your kitchen uniquely yours?
Pink appliances?  Purple walls?  Red and white checked curtains? Black and white checkered flooring?  What isn't unique?
10. Are you a crafty person?
Not if I can help it.  
11. What is your favorite traditional picnic or bbq (cookout) food?
Whatever someone else cooks.  And cleans up.  And purchases.  
12. Name one leisurely activity you enjoyed over Labor Day Weekend.
Napping.  It was lovely.  And it was alone.  Just sayin'.

I finally got set up to "follow" you... and some others that I read...instead of hitting on your blog each evening and using you as a gateway to the others I like to read too. Keep up the good stuff! Tell Logan Mrs. Rieger still like cookies.

Your own soul is nourished when you are kind, but you destroy yourself when you are cruel. -Proverbs 11: 17
