Content, Peaceful and Tired...

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Since last fall I have devoted Tuesday's here on Walking on Sunshine to a question.
It started off with one simple question in one blog post and before
I knew it, a whole series developed.


I have come to LOVE our Tuesday's Question posts and hope you all have also.

Last fall, one of the first questions I asked you was for you to describe
your life in THREE WORDS at your FUNERAL.

That post generated a lot of comments!
You can read that post HERE.

I thought for this week's Tuesday's Question we would revisit
that very popular question...but with a slight change.

"Using only THREE WORDS
 how would you describe your life NOW?"

Yes, only THREE WORDS!

I had a hard time answering this question.
The first three words that came to my mind were...

"Exhausted, tired, weary."


But then I went to our garden yesterday and I gathered this...


So last night, my three words were going to be...

"I love gardening."

Then I remembered Olivia is leaving soon to begin her sophomore
year at college and my words were...

"Worried, nervous, sad."


That's my girl in her Troubled Italian shirt that she sells on
her website to help pay for her college.
Here's a link to her Troubled Apparel site and her Twitter account if you'd like to follow her.
She has quite a following and has funny things to post.

But those three words don't really cover everything and
after some careful thinking, I came up with the following three words...

"Content, peaceful, tired."

Yes, I'm content.
I'm at peace with life and I'm also tired.
It's tiring keeping up with everything on some days!

All in all, God has been good to me and I'm grateful.

Leave me a comment and let me know 
YOUR three words.

Enjoy your day!

  4. Good morning! Now this should be interesting...but my emotions and feelings are ALL over the place these days, and my 3 top descriptions of me right now could change practically minute by minute, lol, so I am going to go with what I KNOW to be true.

    blessed, content, and hard.

    Have a wonderful day!

  10. It's hard for me to sum anything up in just 3 words! :) I'd have to say my three words at this moment are:
    waiting, weary, wondering.

    Have a nice day!

    Thanks for your precious insights.
    Just wondering if you get my updates, I don't see my blog over in your sidebar any longer. Hmmm.

    Hang in there sweetie as your daughter returns to school. I'll be praying for you. <3

  16. Blessed! First thing that comes to mind.
    Disheartened-Dr put me on a lactose-free gluten-free diet. I love to bake, this is going to be hard.
    Motivated-it has made me want to eat healthier and teach my kids to do the same.

    Thanks, this made me sit back and put my feeling into words.
    I love it!

    Blessed, thankful, loved.

    :)
