monday morning question

       
                                       (A day late!)

What pivotal experience(s) in your life has changed you, so that you see life through different eyes?

My answer:  Becoming a Christian, the moment I realized it was okay to be either married or not married, marrying John, going through the transplant experience with John, starting this blog (call it cheesy but this thing has changed me in a lot of ways!)

So tell us, what experience in life has changed you to see differently?

  1. For me there were many moments that changed my life.  I am actually knee deep in writing a book about them.  Life is a constant learning experience and I have learned quite a bit from my children.

    One of my favorite things that I learned was from my eldest son.  I told him to get ready for church one morning and when he asked me "why?"  I replied "because it's important".  He was 5 at the time.  He put his little hand on his hip, looked up at me and said "it wasn't important last week!"

    Out of the mouths of babes.  I learned the value of consistency very quickly!

  3. I can tell you quite honestly that the birth of my child with special needs DID NOT change how I see things or view things ... but the birth of my child with special needs reaffirmed for me that there is a God and He knew who to bless with that child.

  5. What changed my life - my Sis Elaine and young nephew Kenny being killed by a Doctor driving drunk in Pennsylvania.   Made me re-evaluate life as it did all of our family....a wake up call, that we need to enjoy today, no guarantee we had a tomorrow, so don't waste time on letting things get you down, life is too short, enjoy....

  6. Getting married two weeks after meeting my husband changed my life in ways both wonderful and not. After 41 years, we're still experiencing both.

    Finding out my son was deaf from birth.  This has changed where we wanted to raise our children  and changed how we had to live our lives.  But it ended up being all good changes in the long run :)  Didn't seem so good THEN but NOW it's great.

  9. Signing for a course in Bioinformatics. I had to be socially reengineered! It rewired the parts of my brain that I have not used since highschool.

    Giving birth to my children. And when I became saved through Jesus Christ! Both events have opened my eyes to new and beautiful things that I did not have before.

    I think there are three major events:  1. Giving my life to Jesus Christ.  2. Getting sober.  With that experience, I began to see that even though my heart was in the right place, I was hurting everyone around me.  2. Becoming a missionary.  I never really understood the poverty that people around the world suffer.  The children I cared for opened my heart up to more love than I could imagine.  Of course, there are other events that either cleared or changed my pereption.  I believe we have them often.  Blessings and much love, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

  13. Possibly when I broke up with my ex and started living on my own for the first time.  I was only thinking today that it has made me into a stronger person, coz i have to deal with things on my own and not hide behind someone.

  15. Sorry can't say one thing.  Going back to college around 40 & then again in my 50s.

    Getting older (not that I like it that well) because you look at things in general so differetly once you become a Senior citizen.  (Oh, boy Krissy, that kills me to call myself that, I wouldn't admit that to just anybody.  But you are special as is your husband.)  Krissy, you have supported me through some tough times & I hope my prayers have helped you.  Love, Merry

  16. Getting divorced from a husband who did drugs and was physically and sexually abusive. It was like a great burden taken from my shoulders.  I was finally free to raise my children without fear of HIM.  
    Thenest BIG thing was going to college (graduating with honors), raising the kids (both have asthma, & son is ADD), while working full time with kids with genentic problems.  I had a full plate and I DID it : )
