Morning Dawdler 3/17/23 Looking for Miracles

Rory asked these questions a day ago. It seemed a fun place to start the day.

Do you think being outside is good for a person’s wellbeing?

It is absolutely essential. When I’m outside, all my problems seem smaller. The immense beauty and expansive wonder of Nature (something I cannot fully explain) speaks to me. There are forces so much bigger than I. My favorite personal explanation is “It’s a place where I feel comfortably insignificant.”
Once when my granddaughter, at about 8 years old, was having a ‘meltdown’, my cure for it was asking her to go and sit outdoors. It worked. It always works.
I don’t consider it a distraction, but rather a reconnection.

How much of a sensation seeker are you?

This is a good one. I am a bit of a daredevil. But the path I take is usually testing my own limits. As an “eyes wide open” person when it comes to assessing physical danger, I don’t as often take safety risks as I test the “rules”. I think most rules are arbitrary nonsense. Remember the 6-foot distancing during the pandemic? Yeah…that one was actually an IQ test and most people were sadly scoring in the double digits. lol 😉

Do you believe in blind luck?

No. Since I decided to center my life around gratitude it has been even more beautiful. And to feel gratitude, one needs someone or something to thank. I am thankful to God for his grace and love. By finding that life direction which increases my perception of beauty and calm, I haven’t regretted the decision… and I truly don’t care what others think of it. Faith is absolutely a daily decision and no different from deciding what you’ll wear.
Since I’ve looked for miracles (I even did as a child), I’ve recognized SO much. It’s quite like the saying, “You can’t win the lottery if you don’t play.”

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

Zabby Eight Update 12/1/10

The Eight family had a miracle over the weekend! Kat discovered a “back to life” potion and injected Zabby’s parents,who happened to be lying on my living room floor.The potion works ONLY on imaginary people and brought Zabby’s parents back to life!

At first, Katherine injected Zabby’s mom and she popped back to herself. But when it came to her Dad, Katherine accidentally picked up the syringe filled with the “super grow” formula that Kat had also developed. He filled the room . After the reanimation of Zabby’s Dad, Katherine had me give him an injection for “average size”. She lifted his pant leg and told me to just inject his leg since I could not reach his shoulder. It worked!

Zabby’s parents are staying with me now and actually look pretty good for all that they have been through. Kat has decided to keep her medical miracle syringes better organized. I’m still wondering what killed Zabby’s parents in the first place AND why they were on my living room floor? I’m just too afraid to ask!
