Friday's Feast








Appetizer

List 3 emotions you experienced this week.

I'm not a very 'emotional' person... you can ask any of my 'friends' who actually have voiced concern that I don't show much emotion... but here are three I can think of:

Joy-I have felt very joyful at my walk with Christ and the revelations I have recieved.

Sadness-I read a post at another blog (I think Jill's) anyway, she was talking about weaning her baby from his bottle. I lost it. It was the day after the three year anniversary and I had a good day on 'the' day, but I was typing a comment about how when Izzy's accident happened she still took a nightly bottle and how she would knock on her wall from her crib and call out 'baba.' As soon as she had a bottle in hand she would dismiss me and be happy with her bottle. I had breastfed her until she was about 10 or 11 months but wanted to wean her because I waited too long with Emelia and it was hard. Anyway, I had several bottles made up in the fridge and I came home to get clothes and saw those bottles. I stood and poured out the milk, washed them, and put them away while crying. It all came back typing it and I was very sad, but only for a moment and then I snapped out of it.

thankfulness-I have been thankful this week for all the wonderful blessings that I have received and continue to receive. I am thankful to God and know that He is good, all the time.

Soup

Name a car you’d love to have.

I like my suburban fine. It's big, so maybe a suburban that gets good gas mileage...

Salad

Describe your typical morning routine.

Wake up... pray ... bathroom... teeth... make Matt's breakfast... get Izzy up... get Emelia up... say bye to Bailey & Amanda... fix Izzy & Emelia's breakfast... get a coke!...check email...feed Izzy... say bye to Matt... get Emelia ready for school... watch for Emelia's bus...get Izzy ready for school... get dressed... take Izzy to school. (I do a lot of things the night before to make our mornings go smooth. Like lay out clothes for Matt Emelia and Izzy, program coffee maker, make lunches if needed, etc.)

Main Course

Have you ever emailed someone famous? If so, who, and what did you say to them? Did they reply?

Not that I can remember.

Dessert

Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which ones?

I don't listen to 'podcasts,' but, I listen to different lessons available on the internet.

I just finished reading Izzy's story and browsing through her blog. I send you my prayers. With such a loving family, Izzy is still so blessed.
Re: your salad, mornings can quite get crazy in a big family. Congrats that you're so organized. I need some of that :D

Have a good weekend. Hugs to little Izzy.

Emotions can sneak right up on you, can't they? Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for visiting.

Great feast Annie. Your mornings sound hectic. I remember those busy mornings when my children were young. I am enjoying a little more 'laid back' time now!
Have a blessed weekend.

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Great feast Annie! I always love your pictures on these and your menu, makes these memes so much more enjoyable :)

I wish they would come out with an SUV that got great gas mileage. I'd get one in a heartbeat :)

Have a great day and a great weekend!

Imogen said...

Thanx for stopping by :)
Great feast!

Carrie! :o) said...

Awww, what a tug at the heartstrings. I can only imagine the emotions you felt over the bottle issue. To many, those things are simple. But to those who have dealt with traumatic experiences with our children ... it's the simple things that *get us*.

Great feast!

Dawn said...

What a wonderful feast! Have a great weekend!

CoachJ said...

Girl, your morning routine is sooo much more than mine. It's all I can do to get my teeth brushed before drinking coffee and staggering outside to say good morning to God! Forget breakfast for anybody....

Izzy is very blessed to have such a wonderful family! I'm so glad she is well now and is improving all the time. And she is beautiful! (I just read her story and live in Phoenix, where we hear so many of those stories on the news!) I'm sure I'll be sharing her story with people here too.

Thanks for your comment on my FF this morning and hope you have a wonderful day.

Mandalyn said...

Annie~ I'm so sorry that you experienced sadness this week. My heart and prayers go out to you.

Your morning routine sounds as complex as mine. I do a lot at night to make the mornings easier.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

SASSY MOM said...

Hear ya on your salad! We do need to plan ahead so thing will be smooth sailing...

Great feast!

I really enjoyed reading about your three emotions. I am likely less emotional than you-its a mental condition. I don't ever feel bad. Some say I'm lucky, but I think without being sad occasionally, happiness is overrated. Thanks for stopping in on my blog.

gail said...

Such a testimony to us all that you can have such joy and thankfulness in your days...I love that.
I love my suburban too but I'm with ya on wanting one with good gas mileage! It's sticker shock for me to put 42 gallons in it right now.
I've listened to some podcasts and enjoy them from time to time if I'm walking by myself.

Alice Teh said...

I'm with you on the dessert. :) Great feast! Blessed weekend!

Hi Annie!
I had a great time reading about your Friday's Feast. I participated but I haven't figured out how to add the little pictures so mine isn't as exciting as yours. :) I tried using the image thingy but it didn't work for me. *sigh* I'll get the hang of it one day! But I did figure out how to add links to my roll blog! Yay! So I added you and several others I enjoy reading. Many Blessings to you and yours!
In Christ,
Jenileigh

Isn't it funny how one little thing can bring up a memory and make it so real, if only for a moment? Thanks for sharing this story with us.

Take care!
