3X Thursday

Some questions to make you ponder, if you're into that kind of thing.

1. What is one item that you really should throw away, but probably never will?

2. What are the things that stand between you and complete happiness?

3. What will people say at your funeral?


  1. #! I'm not sure about this one.
    #2 There's not much.
    #3 I often wonder is anyone will show up

    1. You are a man of few words, Tom.

    2. ...a picture is worth a 1000 words

  2. 1. I'm not against throwing anything away. I read the book "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and it helped me keep what I find value in and toss what is just hanging around my house.
    2. I am the only thing that stands between me and complete happiness (and also probably lack of money). I find that I am usually the sole cause for my inability to deal with stress and life's difficult situations. I'm working on it though.
    3. No funeral for me. Have a party, celebrate my life, don't mourn me. But at the party most people (the ones who show up) will most likely say they hardly knew me at all.

    1. I want you to outlive me, Annie, but if I ever get the chance, I will tell people how often my first niece brought a ray of sunshine into my day. I love Facebook for the plain and simple fact that it has brought us together in such a wonderful way. I love you!

  3. 1. I should probably get rid of some childhood stuffed animals, like a ratty looking raccoon and a scruffy teddy bear, but throwing something that has been around so long, hugged bare, and loved enough to turn "real" just feels wrong.

    2. I know it is ultimately my own choices and bad attitude that stand between me and complete happiness. In the big picture I need to make my own decisions and follow the road God has laid out before me. It's a question that will take some time and thought to answer completely.

    3. Most likely there will be some comments at my funeral about how many children and grandchildren I have. (It's a nice collection.) Hopefully, when it comes to the end I will have a well worn Bible, a worthy testimony, and a legacy of loving others. I'm far from having arrived, but I'm working on it.

  4. 1. I need to get rid of old purses. I have a thing for purses.
    2. I am the only thing that stands between me and happiness. My choices determine everything.
    3. No funeral!
