8 Things Meme

8 things I'm passionate about:

*My husband
*My art (metal/gemstones/jewelry)
*My music
*My camera/photography
*Healthy and all natural things - the stuff "we" put in and on "our" bodies is scary!
*Children and treating them well (parents these days disturb me...)
*Educating people about phobias - people are so ignorant and rude, it's sickening.

8 things I say often:

*"What the frick/heck/yahoo/that place down there with fire and brimstone?" (YES, I say that word. It's in the Bible, for pete's sake.)
*"Oh, for pete's sake!"
*"Love you. Bye. Love you."
*"Did you wash your hands?"
*"Sick freak."
*"_____ (insert name of dog here), gitcher butt in here!!"
*"Are you freaking kidding me?" (Said when someone says or does something stupid... which... is often.)
*"I mean, who does that?" (Said when *I* say or do something stupid... which... is often.)

8 books I've read recently:

I haven't read any books lately, much less 8. The only ones I've picked up recently are books on jewelry design. Sorry.

8 things I want to do before I die:

*Adopt a couple of children and see them raise their own children.
*Melt glass and cut gemstones.
*Master photography skills.
*Master silver smithing skills.
*Find a cure for my phobias.
*Record an album.
*Bless more people with my music.
*Get published.

8 songs I could listen to over and over again:

I get bored easily... not sure I like to listen to songs over and over again... but... I guess there are a few...

*Breath by Faith Hill
*It's Your Love by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill
*My Immortal by Evanescense (sp?)

That's about it.

8 things that attract me to my friends:

*When someone treats their spouse with respect. I can't stand it when people talk down about or to their spouses all the time. It's SO unattractive.
*When someone is understanding even when they don't understand and listens even though it's something that's hard to hear.
*Good sense of humor... you have to have one to hang with me. I'm quirky like that.
*Strong convictions and morals.
*Intelligence... it's not like they need to be rocket scientists, but having a good head on their shoulders is a plus.
*Being able to go through their day without creating needless drama. I.Hate.Drama. and don't really have time for people who feel the need for it.
*Compassion and acceptance. I don't like people who are too judgy. We don't all have to be the same to get along.

8 things I've learned in the last year:

*Infertility sucks, but
*Permanent infertility sucks even more.
*God is good all the time, but
*His ways are not our own.
*Phobias are impossibly difficult, but
*The feeling you get after facing one and surviving it is indescribable.
*God DOES give us more than we can handle, but
*His grace is sufficient.

8 people to tag:

I think most everyone has already been tagged, but if you haven't and want to play along, feel free, but leave a comment. I luuuurve me some comments! *grin*

I got tagged by Sandy (I think), but I didn't think I could actually come up with 8 things per category! Maybe I'll attempt it sometime later this week.

I, also, am passionate about healthy/natural stuff. Haven't been doing so well on the healthy/natural wagon lately, but it'll come back!

They are all great lists! In fact, just about everything on the 8 thinkgs I am passionate about list are the exact same things I would list!! (I don't make jewelry, but I'm artsy fartsy in other ways!)

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
