Staying Current

January 7, 2014

in the generous life

I used to hate tea and be terribly uncomfortable speaking in front of folks. My favorite color was blue and I was a big city gal.

Now I enjoy tea and am downright comfortable in groups of people whether I am speaking or not (pretty good for an introvert). I like all dark rich toned colors (and couldn’t pick just one) and I am more and more at home in the lovely outdoors of Washington state.

People do change. Sometimes it’s big and in your face and other times it’s sneaky and subtle.

Since you and your sweetie got married, you’ve both changed. A great tool for staying current is remaining curious and asking questions. If you are question challenged, here is a free download of a year’s worth of questions to get you started.

I saw this when you posted it last year, and I decided to make it for my husband for Christmas Whew! Cutting/Folding 365 strips of paper takes a long time! :) We are really enjoying it so far, thank you for the great idea!!

LOL Yes, it does take some time. I remember thinking the same thing when I cut them up for my jar.
