Hello to all my blog friends...


I realize I haven’t displayed a post lately, or made it over to visit frequently. I apologize but am preparing for an upcoming event.

Arlee Bird, atTossing it Out, has initiated an A to Z Challenge for bloggers. The premise is to post the letter of the alphabet every day during the month of April, with Sundays off for good behavior. Sunday, April 1st begins the festivities. If you are interested in joining, stop by his place. Thus far there are 1192 entrants for this blog hop.
Last year was the first year I participated and it was grueling to not only compose a post everyday but to visit and read all the contributors’ blogs. However, I enjoyed the trial.
My ‘theme’ last year was the ABC’s of Me!  Therefore, this year I had a desire to cultivate a theme that was diverse and uncommon as well as struggling with the need to keep the post on the ‘short’ side; time will be at a premium when visiting the blogs of other partakers.

So, drum roll please?

My theme is as follows….

Perceptions + Quotes + Reality =

A to Z Challenge
 
Is the glass half empty or half full?

Depending upon how you respond to this oft-asked question, your answer offers a glimpse into your mindset or attitudes of life.
My belief is the foundations of your reality are based on your perceptions thus are deeply embedded into your psyche-what you perceive or recognize to be true.
I await the upcoming contest and look forward to hearing your retorts.

Retorts? No, we'll COMMENT and ENCOURAGE!! :-)

I think it's great that you're doing this. I bet it is grueling. I probably won't try it this year. But what a wonderful way to explore all kinds of things!

Thank you for your encouragement of me. I look forward to connecting more!

Looking forward to it. I gave this a thought of joining, but am afraid that I'd fail miserably with posting each day. But I'm looking forward to reading yours!!!!

I'm looking forward to reading you A to Zs. Can you believe it's been a whole year? I remember your theme from last year well. It was great. This year mine is Swedish Rhapsody. A mixture of tall tales and fun stuff from my native country.

Huge challenge! My glass is often half empty but I am working hard on keeping it half full :)

EmptyNester said...

I'm thinking about having a theme this year--probably centered around fitness/lifestyle changes...something along those lines. Heck, I'll just be happy if I can think of something for every letter. LOL

LV said...

Thanks so much far taking the time to visit. I enjoyed your blog, but I am participating in too many memes as is. I will drop by and see what your are doing tho.

Well that sounds like a very fun event. Spring is a good time for for new beginnings.
Our glass is half full BUT (big but)
my gasoline tank is always half empty. LOL Hubby likes to 'see how far he can go' on fumes. Not me.
Hugs C

However, it is still a really noble job and one that not everybody is able to do. Moreover, you will be required to assist in any way possible with the treatment and the care of the patients as well as in dressing the wounds and cleaning any injured regions.
