the girl had an interesting homework assignment tonight. name 16 big events in your life. it was interesting to read her list. it included her infant illness, getting her first cat, moving from the trailer to the house, getting rid of that cat and getting the cat she has now, getting her first phone, the death of her grandma and more. it was so insightful to see what she considered important.
i could zip through 16 big events in my life in a heartbeat, but i really want to give this list some thought before i share it with you.
a little while ago someone i've come to think of as a kindred spirit in many ways had a contest on her blog and i wpn a a box of incredible treasures. only's contest was about paying it forward, so i'm paying it forward with a contest of my own. your homework? list 16 big events in your life (either in a comment here or on your blog). next thursday, sept. 2 i will pick a winner and send you a box of treasures. the treasures inside will depend on the winner. my treasure box included some very cool penguin items, among other things. what does it take to win? i won't know until i see the lists. maybe it will be something on your list that makes me lol or touches me deeply or stuns and amazes me. i don't know.
so...off with you now...go do your homework : )
