I took the challenge and took on the persona of a friend of mine, unannounced to this person of course. In fact as I tell you about the characteristic I assumed, she may begin to notice herself. I stole the fabulous mommy characteristic from my friend. This individual is an amazing mother. She is so devoted and wise and is an envy to the kind of parent I dream of being. She once said in passing, she doesn't want to miss a single moment with her children, therefore the computer, the dishes, the laundry can all wait until they go to bed, or until forever as far as she concerned, as long as she is an active participant in life of her children. She said their happiness is her happiness. In not so many words. This is a major characteristic I want to gain. I want so badly learn to push everything aside and just enjoy the moment of my daughters laughter, even if those moments last 12 solid hours. I want to be able to look past my must have to do and enjoy the spur of the moment passions and cherish the time and love I have with my daughter. So for one day, I did. And it was AMAZING!! I threw away all cares of dishes, laundry, dust and computers and just basked in the glow of my daughter and all she is. I have never felt more happy and energetic than I felt this day. Thank you my friend for being an inspiration! I am now working to make this dream a permanent reality in my world!
Oh and I also took the frivolous challenge and surprised my H4L with a intimate moment. Which is a private moment between us and all you need to know is I took the challenge!

( i would love for those bold bloggers out there to share this on their blog and link back, but understand if you are not ready.) Now have a look at these 3 ridiculous events. Did any of these events provoke a you-ism? Can you see how these events although wild and wacky may have actually been a fabulous experience that matured your soul? In looking back have you chosen a wild and wacky moment in your history that helped define yourself today? Would you repeat these events? If you said no, re evaluate as to why it was acceptable in your past but is not now. What is so different from those wild days about you today?
