Blog Every Day in May ~ Day 2

Day 2 is
Educate your readers on something you know a lot about
or are good at.

What on earth am I good at and know a lot about???


I think when we are all posed with this question
we cannot pick something out and say "hey ~ I am good at (insert that here)"

truth me told I can go on and on about things that I do not excel at
but isn't that a woman's first instinct?

I am a mediocre baker and cook
I do a mean brunch but it's the basics

I can organize like a mad woman
but time management escapes me some days
and I look back on the time and wonder what the heck I did do all day

I can shoot the crap out of a flower ~ with my camera of course
I am quite proud of my floral shots
but people pictures ~ I cannot find that happy medium

so to take one thing to say I am good at
is friendship

I am loyal ~ I am a good listener
I am a nurturer and give the best hugs
I will be the one to plan the reunion ~ to make sure everyone is called
then relax once I get there and just connect with these people

I am the one that remembers when
that dance, that party, the night we did "this"

I realize that friendships are relationships that need work too
but not too much work 
and have come to learn as time goes by
that if I am the only one investing in it ~ you will lose me
I will try for a bit as I am a fighter
and know that some things are worth fighting for
but if I am getting nothing back
I just do not have time in my life for that any more

Perfect for you are a great friend, I couldn't agree more.

When I tell me that some of my closest friends are people that I have never met, you are the first one I think of....sssh, don't tell the others ;) XX

Wonderful post, Lori! Even though I've never "met" you - I know you have a loving and giving spirit and that is what I love most about you. Dang it, I might have to be a few days behind on this challenge but I will do it! Hugs and smiles, sweet girl! xxoo

Lori, I have always had you on my favorites and for a very long time I just couldn't get into your blog, the page just kept saying "can't recover web page". Very frustrating. Most likely on my end as we have terrible internet service out here in the boonies. Today I just had to try again to peek in and so happy it worked. Now I have a lot of reading and catching up to do. Cheers from Alberta!

I think being a friend is one of the best things you can excel at, Lori! Be proud of that. If you are a good friend that you are a good person!
