Reflection on 2005

Courtesy of Claire Bug...


1. What did you do in 2005 that you had never done before? Salsa Daning...can't say I've ever done that!

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I can't remember what I resolved to do last year, I know I wanted to grow in the Lord and I did that...with all the good and bad...this year I'm vowing to God to give Him my dreams this is not the easiest thing in the world, in fact probably the hardest thing that there is to do, I'm trying to surrender to His will...we will see what He has in store...

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? No, but two people that I'm close to got pregnant ;)

4. Did anyone close to you die? Yes! Kyle Hans at work.

5. What countries did you visit? Didn't visit any countries...

6. What would you like to have in 2006 that you lacked in 2005? Really if I think about it I don't lack for anything...God provides everything I could ask for, but while I don't think I lacked it I wouldn't mind losing a little weight and maybe getting to know the man I shall call my husband...if not I'm eternally blessed.

7. What dates from 2005 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? I can't even keep track with what the date is today...yeah...can't think right now!

11. What was the best thing you bought? I shop a lot...Yeah...not going there!

12. Whose behavior merited celebration? Oh you know what I just celebrate over my sisters all of the time, I think those that merited celebration in 2005 for me were those in our Holiday Book Drive this year at work...Thursday's Child and Special Needs Adoption Program...they have hollowed out a special place in my heart.

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed? Me, Myself, and I.

14. Where did most of your money go? Oh me I would love to say savings, but to me...I'm sort of a selfish buyer.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about? I get excited over the silliest things...I think Todd Agnew's new album coming out, Chronicles of Narnia, the Pioneer Christmas Event my family and I went to, Sara Groves new album...the fall leaves this year were a constant source of enjoyment for you...I get excited when I hear and see friends and family I love...my 2 year old boyfriend always makes me excited...he is the little apple of my eye!

16. What song will always remind you of 2005? No Anthem for '05

17. Compared to this time last year, are you: a) happier or sadder? b) thinner or fatter? c) richer or poorer? a) MUCH happier b) Fatter c) No worse, maybe even a little better off...in life much richer always! (The longer I live the harder it gets, but the better it gets wouldn't trade it in for nothin')

21. Did you fall in love in 2005? Not this year!
