Writers Workshop

4.) What lights your fire? Describe five things you are most passionate about.

I have to be quick this week because I am sick with the flu and can hardly see to type (sinus, headache and snotty!) but I don't want to miss out on this weeks writers workshop....see I'm so dedicated.

1. My family - they are the reason I live, I breathe and I drive. And boy do I drive - to ballet/tap and jazz dancing three times a week for the girls - to football games and training for number one son - to birthday parties, to Macdonalds and the movies occasionally and wherever else this chauffeur has to go. Since we live out of town add the travel time on top and we are super busy.

It's all worth it. To see everyone happy and thriving and taking an interest in something keeps our family harmony in balance...most of the time.

2. My childrens' future. I want my kids to be happy, healthy and responsible and giving members of the community. I want them to be rich in love and friends, be safe and comfortable in their own skin and know that they will always be able to come home to mum and dad if they need support or guidance.

3. Travel. I read about different places in the world constantly and dream of the countrys I would love to visit. I enjoy reading travel brochures on places like America and Europe.

4. My house. The faceless house. I am so ready to unpack my things and decorate my new house, I wonder when this will happen? I am being very patient, but I miss my "stuff" and I want my damn theatre room in which to watch my damn movies...

5. Life. My one and only. I love where I am right now. There is so much I still want to accomplish and I just feel so very blessed to have this life, my health, my family and friends and to live in the country in the peace and quite.

Great list! I couldn't really think of five things I'm passionate about so wrote about my husband's instead. Visiting from Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

Oh your family is lucky! What a great mommy.
We moved into our house a little over 6 months ago and we are unpacked yet undecorated. Not a single picture up in our house, and I'm a photographer. How sad is that.
I love your list and thank you for your comments on post today, you brought tears to MY eyes!

Great list! I feel terrible - I didn't put "family" in my top 5 ... that is a gross oversight on my part!
