Don't Fear the Reaper #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to August's Secret Subject Swap. This week nine awesome 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:
what if the grim reaper existed, but he took people to whichever afterlife corresponded with their beliefs? Tell us a story!

It was submitted by: 

I must apologize to Jenniy first off, for the fact that I am not going to do this amazing subject justice. I just do not have the ability to think about this type of scenario and write a story. So, I can see that this is an awesome subject, but I just do not have the thought process necessary, to bring it to the glorious level it deserves.

Now, let's discuss this topic. The grim reaper actually existing, and everyone who dies, goes to the afterlife designated by their beliefs. That is some extraordinary reality. It would mean everyone, and every belief is correct. Those who believe in Heaven and Hell, correct. Those who believe there is no afterlife at all, correct. Those who believe in Valhalla, correct. Those who believe in 72 virgins, correct. Those who believe in Reincarnation, correct. I could go on and on. The magnitude of this possibility is mind blowing. 

For me personally, this would mean I would be going to Heaven or Hell. I must say, I am seriously hoping for Heaven. I would love to see all my loved ones, including my children, who have passed away before me. I want to meet God. I want to watch over my loved ones, until they join me, hopefully many decades later. I also believe that when we die, all our unanswered questions, are finally answered, and we know everything. I would absolutely love this. I have lots of unanswered questions.

The sad part for me, would come in the form of the people I love very much, who do not believe in the same afterlife as I do. They would be going to their own believed in afterlife, and I would be void of them for eternity. I would have to seriously spend my time praying, that when Gigi is old and gray, she believes in Heaven, and has remained a good person. 

In truth, with all the different beliefs which exist, the possibilities are endless. Obviously, if you would rather not say, I understand. I am genuinely curious where you would all end up, if this scenario were real. 

Now, please go check out the awesome Secret Subject Swaps, from my fellow bloggers. I will meet you there, with a cup of coffee, as soon as I'm home from bringing Gigi to school. Oh yeah, if you do not follow my Facebook page, you may have missed that Gigi became a Kindergarten student this week. I am handling as well as I am able. I have my moments. She is thriving and loving it. 

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a drink, and check them all out. See you there:


  1. I have a hard time imagining a heaven that doesn't include all my loved ones. That would make it a little less heavenly for me!

  2. I think you did do justice to the topic, well thought out and full of hope.

  3. I think you did a great job with a tough subject

  4. Interesting assignment, wow.
    How about you go after your unanswered questions the same way you did for this post? The answer is what you believe it is. Know what I mean? Will this give you closure? I feel you shouldn't have to wait till you die to find out what is important to you.

  5. It is in point of fact a nice and helpful piece of info.
    I'm happy that you shared this useful information with us.
    Please stay us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  6. this is one of those things I have been thinking about writing myself sort of like the wholesome demon story. I'd like to think that if there is a higher being whoever they are would appreciate someone living a good life and being a just person over who exactly they worshiped so that everyone who was good to others and lived with empathy and compassion could enter the afterlife they believed in. Kind of like everyone's person idea of The Good Place. And even though I don't particularly believe in any of it, and wouldn't have a real place if these events unfolded, I'd surely want to see everyone I love who does get what they were striving for in the end. :)

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
