I've been tagged!
Last Tuesday I was tagged to do a meme by GiBee. Sorry it's taken me so long to get to this, GiBee. Here goes:

What is your favorite word? Mama-- there's nothing sweeter than hearing my son call out to me, "Mama!" with a brilliant smile on his face.

What is your least favorite word? Stupid-- I don't think anyone should be called stupid. We all possess some form of intelligence, it's just a matter of developing it.

What turns you on spiritually, creatively, emotionally ?
spiritually: music-- I've been involved in church choirs in the past and raising my voice in praise is so spiritually motivating.
creatively: card stamping, cake decorating
emotionally: loving family and friends, tenderness

What turns you off? belittling words shouted in anger

What's your favorite curse word? hell-- my Grandma once told me that I should be able to get my point across without cussing, but sometimes I just can't help myself.

What sound or noise do you love to hear? my son laughing uncontrollably as we find all his tickle spots.

What sound or noise do you hate? my son crying in pain, that's the worst sound of all!

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Writer

What profession would you not like to do? Telemarketer

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say at the pearly gates? Since I believe that Heaven does exist, I would love to hear God say, "Welcome, my child."

Now, I'm going to tag two bloggers that I'd like to get to know better: kpjara and Tracey. Please leave me a comment you two, letting me now if you're willing to do this.

I'm truly honored you "tagged" me...and I must have known it would happen because I did this on 05/16/06, LOL! It seems our least favorite word is the same, and I LOVE your favorite word! That is so sweet.

We consider Stupid, shut up, and hate to be curse words in our house and the kids come home from school saying that others kid say these things and I am proud that my kids don't!!
