Count Your Blessings

Captain’s Log, Stardate 08.16.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is RELUCTANT BURGLAR by Jill Elizabeth Nelson.
My Monday book giveaway is GEORGIA ON HER MIND by Rachel Hauck.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for RELUCTANT BURGLAR and post the title for another book I'm giving away.

My local friend Malia (“local” meaning from my home state of Hawai’i) tagged me, the brat. Then Robin tagged me, too! They're coming at me from all sides!

1. A friend who has blessed me: My husband for being there to hear me vent. I'd like to name all my friends but I know I'm going to forget someone, so rather than piss anyone off, you're all being ignored! Bwahahahahaha...

2. An unexpected gift: a pretty blue England bone china teacup and saucer my husband got for me from Goodwill.

3. A kind word shared with me recently: “Thanks for being who you are!!!” from Sharon Hinck

4. Something that makes me stop and praise God: An engrossing book

5. Something I'm looking forward to: ACFW CONFERENCE!!!

6. A particular part of me I'm pleased with: My hair. Don’t hate me, but I rarely have a bad hair day.

7. Something in my life that I wanted but never expected: to be published by Zondervan, my dream publisher

8. A place that moved/moves me: the Grand Tetons

9. One thing/person that always makes me smile: my dog, Snickers

10. Most recent "love note" from God: “Because I love you, you need to be nicer to people, chickie-baby.”


  1. You mean you aren't nice to people? I would beg to differ--as far as the blog goes anyway.

    What do you do to other people? Put them down? Clobber them?

    But I guess there's always room for improvement in anything we do.

    I should be more prompt in getting my statements in by the 10th of the month. Today's the 16th and I just don't feel like doing it. Wah! I'm being seriously noise-challenged again. Especially by the noise of the ever-running fridge. I could scream!!! And of course, that's not the only noise. I had to evacuate my bedroom because Tony, the hairdresser is "talking at the top of his voice" again. Can you tell I'm in a good mood? My head seems ready to explode.

  2. #10 takes the cake! I'm sure we've all heard versions of that message at some point in our life. However, God has never called me chickie-baby. Must be his pet name for you! ;-)

  3. God calls you 'chickie-baby' too? I knew I liked you! ;-)

  4. I guess that's the first time I've been sort of been referred to as local. I'll take it. :)

  5. Nicer to people? LOLOLOLOLOL I'm sorry, that's RICH! LOLOLOLOLOL
