How many moments have I remembered and tried to capture in my chair that swivels and rocks? Many! best-moment-award

Mama at Mama’s Empty Nest has nominated me for an award that just in it’s title attracted me to accept. I want to thank her for this particular recognition.

I have opinions. I can take a stand. I can analyze questions. However, it’s the universal moments of family, connections, Nature, travel and teaching I am trying to seize, preserve and remember that put me in my chair so I can savor them, capture them the best I can and pass on to family members and my wonderful readers.

So please, go visit Mama’s Empty Nest and indulge me as I follow the rules for the Best Moment Award: 1)Placing the award on your blog (lined up on my Awards Page); 2)Answer a few questions; and 3)Nominate some of your favorite bloggers (there are so many, please look at my blogroll, so please don’t feel slighted if I missed you).

What is your favorite quote? This one by John Wesley may be impossible to live up to, but is so beautiful: “Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.” John Wesley

What is your favorite dessert? Strawberry shortcake — it has fruit– that’s good, it has cake — we all deserve our cake and eat it too — and it also, has whipped cream which I pretend is like eating air.

Do you play a musical instrument? I took piano lessons, but will never play as well as my grandmother or brother who never had lessons.
