Megan tagged me to complete this meme - here goes:

A One-Word Meme (which is really more like a one-phrase meme):

You’re feeling: overwhelmed with wanting to be a godly wife and mother, seeing how short I fall
To your left: a pile of stuff waiting to be put away
On your mind: God's will for our family in multiple areas
Last meal included: leftover Olive Garden ala Monica
You sometimes find it hard to: not worry about what others think
The weather: makes me wish for a screened in porch, a loungy swing and a good book
Something you have a collection of: enamelware and canning jars
A smell that cheers you up: freshly mown grass
A smell that can ruin your mood: trash that needs to be emptied, or should have been a day or two ago!
How long since you last shaved: Um, I can't remember - a few days I think
The current state of your hair: getting longer, but I'm not sure what to do with it now
The largest item on your desk/workspace (not computer): piles waiting to be cleared
Your skill with chopsticks: I have no skills with chopsticks, but I like Megan's idea
Which section you head for first in a bookstore: magazines
Something you’re craving: sleep, sleep and more sleep
Your general thoughts on the presidential race: I love Megan's answer to this too - but for my own answer I would say it is two-fold: wishing it were over and praying for revival in our land
How many times have you been hospitalized this year: Well, hospitalized would probably involve an overnight? I was in the hospital three times total welcoming Samuel!
Favorite place to go for a quiet moment: propped up in my bed with a book or on Mesa Road overlooking Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak or here
You’ve always secretly thought you’d be a good: homemaking mentor
Something that freaks you out a little: anything that creeps, crawls, slithers, etc... you get the idea
Something you’ve eaten too much of lately: homemade cookies: chocolate chip, M&M, etc...
You have never: gone scuba diving
You never want to: have my children know hunger

Now - I will tag Rebecca, Brie andMiriam

Thanks for playing, Monica! I just realized that the thing that "freaks me out" could probably use some clarification. Maybe I should go to that. *grin*

Great answers! So fun to read. I, too, am working on being in the center of God's will in all aspects of my life. I think your desire to please God in everything shines through so much. Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing.

I know exactly what you mean about the Garden of the Gods! I totally miss it. It was fun reading your meme.
