The Apex of My Year December 2013 Secret Subject Swap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My fabulous subject was submitted by!! If you haven't already visited this blog, you definitely should. In fact, you should visit it often. It is one of my favorites!

My subject: What is the best thing that happened to you this year?

How many of you, that know me, already know my answer? Too bad. Keep reading anyways. :)

So much has happened to me this year. Really the past few years have been extremely eventful, and given the life I've lived, that is saying a lot. I'm blessed. Really and truly blessed. Sure, I have had some horrible things happen to me, but we all have horrible things happen. At the end of the day, when I sit back and think back on my life, I can happily report that the good things far outweigh the bad. By far, the best thing that has happened to me this past year, was Weewee. June 27, 2013 at 11:49 pm. By far the greatest moment of my life, not just this year. No matter what has happened in my past, or what happens in my future, I will always have that moment. It can never be taken from me. It will always be my magnificent moment. (I guess this is the part where I make the disclaimer, that yes, I realize it was Chad and I's moment... our moment... but for the purposes of this blog post... it is my moment... I am going to be greedy for a brief moment...) The moment when I was blessed so amazingly, with the most precious little girl. The moment when I felt a love so strong bombard my heart and explode around me. She is so amazing. I'm still so in love, and the love grows stronger and deeper daily. That moment when she was born, she filled my life with purpose and meaning, I hadn't even realised was missing. She completed my life and my world. I hadn't even known I was an incomplete person, until the moment she completed me. I'm certain she will bring even more "best moments" to me, over the years, but for now, her birth is my best moment of 2013. Hands down.

Now that you have read my blog, you should definitely visit the other blogs that participated in this subject swap!!! Baking In A Tornado The Sadder But Wiser Girl Crazy As Normal The Insomniac’s Dream

  2. Great answer. Your little girl is beautiful. I hope the next year brings you even more blessings.My daughter is 20 and I still feel the same way about her.

  3. If I had been asked that question in 2008 and 2005, that would have been my answer as well-my kids are the best things that have happened to me too! :-D

    1. It is truly a blessing larger than I ever could have imagined!!!

  4. Whitlee is just beautiful. And you so eloquently put into words how every mom should feel after the birth of her child. I know you'll have many years of amazing moments with her. Great answer to my prompt!

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
