Meme Monday

Meme Monday - Hosted By: LivinWithMe.Com!

It’s already Monday again and time for another round of Meme Monday.  Anyone can participate in the fun- you can get more information about what Meme Monday is by clicking here.

I was tagged a bunch of times again this week, but I’m only going to post two of them today.  I get overwhelmed if I have to do more than two in one day.


My first tag was from Pam for this really hard meme.  She did such a good job when she posted her answers that I had to wait a few weeks before posting mine.  Hopefully you’ve all forgotten by now how good her answers were.

5 things I want my kids to know:

  • I will love you and accept you no matter what- even when you make choices that are wrong that will not change that I love you unconditionally.
  • None of us are perfect, it’s okay to make mistakes.
  • Who you are on the inside is what matters- if you are beautiful on the inside you will be beautiful on the outside too.
  • You can come to me with anything- no matter what or when I want you to know that you can tell me absolutely anything.
  • While I love you more than you can possibly know- God loves you even more than that.  That is even hard for me to comprehend.

5 things you want to tell your children when they are grown up:

  • You are worth it all- worth everything we went through trying to conceive you, worth all the sleepless nights and worth all of the worry, the tears, the pain- just worth it all.
  • Do what makes you happy.  Money doesn’t matter if you are unhappy.
  • Now that you are an adult- we can be friends, best friends I hope.  When you were a child my job was to be your mom, not your friend.
  • Have respect for everyone.  Remember Matthew 25:40- The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
  • Don’t forget to call your mother.  At least once a day.

5 things you want to tell your child before you die:

  • Someday I will be gone, but God will always be there for you.
  • I did my best and gave you everything I possibly could.
  • You brought me more joy and happiness that you can ever know.
  • I loved going to Disney World just as much as you did.
  • I will be waiting for you in Heaven.

5 things you want your child to know before she dies:

  • What it feels like to fall in love.
  • The wonderful feeling of marrying the right man.
  • What it feels like to have and love her own children, with the man she fell in love with and married.
  • True happiness
  • That she is a Christian and that she will be spending eternity in Heaven.

That was probably one of the hardest meme’s I’ve done, but I’m glad I did it and I actually kind of like my answers.  If you haven’t done this one yet and you have children then consider yourself tagged- really you should do it.


My next tag is from Chuck to do the desk top meme.

Here’s how to play:

- Capture a picture of your computer’s desktop.
- Post it on your blog along with a link to who tagged you.
- Tag some people.

So, here is my desktop.

Livin’ With Me

As you can see I don’t like to have any icons on my desktop- it just seems too cluttered to me.  If you remember back when I did this meme in September I was sharing a laptop with Rich- take a look and see how it looked back then.  I think it looks so much better now that I have my own laptop.  Now if I could just find a way to get rid of that silly Recycling bin I’d be all set.

If you want to play along with the desktop meme- then consider yourself tagged.


If you played along this week- sign Mr. Linky so all of the participants can visit each other.  Invite your friends to play along and please send them here to sign Mr. Linky so that I can visit everyone who plays.
