Thanks Aimee

My friend Aimee sent out an email that she got from a friend of hers. It is the question of the week and I think I might implement that here at Kpinion. So now you can share your ___pinion (fill in the blank).

The question this week is “What are the things that you love and hate about the world?"

Here are mine:

Loves - sunrises and sunsets; the wonder of looking at stars and a full moon; the smell of babies and puppies; when you get a hug from a little kid just because; the feeling in your stomach when you have a crush; knowing that you just made someone's day; people who are polite; sleeping in; tulips; unexpected surprises; friends who are always there for you; reconnecting with old friends; making new friends; love - in all forms; random compliments that brighten your day; driving in your car with the sunroof open and the music blaring; laughing, more laughing, and even more laughing; crying – when it just empties you of the junk in the world; sincere and honest prayer; being told you look pretty when you’ve put no effort into it that day; watching old couples in love; hearing God’s whispers

Hates – the sound of a finger nail clipper in a public place; the feeling when you know you've really hurt someone; traffic - any kind, anywhere; when people disregard your opinion just because they think you are too young to have a good one; when men don't step up and lead; the idea that we all have to be perfect all the time as Christians - hello people we all struggle and have crappy days - own up to it; when guys say it's all about the "inner person" and then you see them out with a floozie with a hot body and skanky clothes - inner person my butt; when people aren't real and only tell you what they think you want to hear; when people think you will always be "one way" and never change; that feeling that you just lost your bestfriend; lying; deception; not being able to help someone when they are hurting; corn nuts (you know I had to go there); my sin

Ok now it’s your turn – share and share good.

i think this might take some time for me to come up with. that requires a lot of thinking. still, here are a few that initially come to mind:

loves: a little kid, just learning to speak, who says your name for the first time. and, every time after that.; losing weight; ice cream; wilderness; coming home to the man who knows you better than anyone else, who loves you despite your faults, and who is more trustworthy than you ever dreamed.

hates: cleaning up after a dog gets sick. and by sick, i mean both ends.; seeing mothers slap their children in the grocery store; not knowing what to cook for dinner; getting in car accidents, particularly if i am at fault; jealousy.

Katie -

LOVE this. Love your loves, and strongly agree with a few of your dislikes. I'll share mine in a day or two on my site.

God Bless Today All!

maybe this could be my post of the day. Oh well, I'll post it in your comments.

likes: a great hug (although any hug will suffice); ice cream in a waffle cone; booking travel; when the plane takes off or lands; finishing a book; naps; finding good friends; my grandmothers' cooking (oh how I miss it); someone "getting" me; snuggling with my hubby; laughing; my 2 year old niece saying my name loudly whenever she sees me; forgiveness; good worship songs; driving with the music blaring and the sunroof open, or better yet, riding in a Jeep on a Spring or Fall day.

hates: early mornings; people that have to have attention; perfectionism; undisciplined children; bad dreams; running late; having plans cancelled

Ok... I am Aimee the one who sent this to Katie... thought I would share mine!

I hate breast augmentation, face lifts, and botox and for that matter- makeup; I mean God made us to deteriorate, it is the beauty of life. I hate long fake fingernails, you know the type that click on the keys of a computer ( I can hear some right now). I hate bell-bottoms, scruncies, clogs, tie die, big bangs, or any other severely dated trend that people continue to rehash. I hate cockroaches. I hate dating reality television shows. I hate gossip magazines and America's obsession with famous people's lives, I mean they are humans just like we are and no one cares when I go to the park to walk my dog. I hate screaming kids in airplanes, and that guy who leans his chair back into your lap. I hate karaoke, an attempt for it to be ok to sing off key... it is NEVER ok to sing off key. Oh yeah, and $3 gas.
> So many loves... I love good music. I love deciding what to eat hours before meal time. I love Clemson... the campus, the team, the people, the memories. I love surprises, but not the kind that you see coming at all, I like the kind when you really don't have a clue. I love a good book. A comfortable T-shirt. An unexpected phone call. A glass of wine after an exhausting day. I love being a bum on my couch in my robe after a good jog and a long hot shower. I love it when a guy is a gentlemen, not because he was raised the way, but just because he wants to. I love friends where you can pick up right where you left off, no matter how long it has been. I love board games. I love family time. I love getting out of the city and realizing that you can see the stars... I love stopping the hustle and bustle of my life just long enough to be still.

HATES: I am SO with you on the fingernail clipper bit! My auntie G sits behind me in church and I once had to SHUSH HER FINGERNAIL CLIPPER in the middle of prayer time!

Also, my darling hubby knows to clip his nails when I'm at work or asleep, because I just HATE that noise.

Loves: My darling hubby, the sound of drying leaves skittering across the parking lot, the smell of autumn, children.

Just a small list. Have a great day!

Loves: Sydney, Kids, Saturday Mornings with nothing planned, Green Bay Packers, the look of a freshly mowed lawn, friends, toddlers when they first begin to speak, Christmas, snow, my Birthday, My anniversary, Fall, Hunting, Fishing, a new computer, blogging... just to name a few.

Hate: gloomy days, being crabby, people who are fake, lofty people with lofty glances, a busy schedule, knowing I need to mow the lawn, allergies, when football seasons over, season finale's of my favorite tv shows... I am sure I could list more... but you get a feeling of who I am... I guess.
