7 Things I Love Meme

Mulier Fortis has tagged me for a Meme although she makes a comment about the point of Memes to be to tag the more little-known blogs.

What is she saying? That my blog is little? That I'm not known? Well, I'm not a Big-Time Blogger, but don't insult my beautiful 118 followers! THEY know about me, even if they only randomly read my links! (My dear followers, let me take this moment to thank you, sincerely, for following this not-so-humble blogger who desperately needs all 118 of your prayers if you'd be so generous.)

And Yes, Mac, I know what you mean and I totally agree that linking to other cool but less-well-known blogs is the best thing about Memes! (Yeah, I'm as guilty as you are, for saying "Tag Thyself" maybe even more so!)

So, without further ado, these are Seven Things I Love:

1. Raindrops on roses
2. Whiskers on Kittens
3. Bright copper kettles
4. Warm woolen mittens
5. Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
6. Catching a firefly and setting him free
7. Tying your shoe for the very first time

*** sound of needle ripping across a record****

OK, ok, the above comes from The Sound of Music and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. But...the ARE cool things, aren't they? And I DO love all those things and even remember tying my shoe for the very first time! And I mostly like wild geese with the moon on their wings because that view means they're not pooping in the field.


You really want REAL stuff? Really? I'm sorry, but I'm really boring and not nearly as poetic, but here goes anyway, the real Adoro. (Yes, I see the irony in that statement.)

(7 Things in no particular order):

1. Roses and Lilacs and Dandelions. Yes, Dandelions. And Violets. Bleeding hearts, Irises, and baby's breath, all together in one bouquet. ALL of these. I've never received such a bouquet but if I did my heart would melt. I know that if anyone were to ever give me such a weird mix of flowers they must REALLY love me because they can't necessarily be obtained from a florist, and I would expect the person to give them to me to know WHY I love those specific flowers. If someone were to know that puzzle, well, that would indicate real love for they'd have to know me WELL to be able to answer it.

2. Horses. I really love horses. And no, little girls don't always "grow out of it." Sometimes we keep that unrequieted longing for life, and that makes it that much more precious.

3. Coming home. No matter how bad my day has been, there is someone there waiting to turn inside-out with joy at my presence. That's only ONE of the things I love about dogs.

4. Coffee. Especially Mystic Monk. 'Nuff said.

5. Writing. If I didn't write, I'd die. You don't want me to die, do you?

6. Mexico. I lived there for a semester, loved it, was crying as I left my host family. The cab driver who picked me up from their house was concerned and so I had to explain I was going home but wanted to stay in Mexico, my new home. Apparently those words endeared me to him and he appreciated that an American could so fall in love with his country and his people. It wasn't hard. Los Mexicanos son muy amables, simpaticos, especialamente para los estudiantes, y su pais es bonitissima. Te amo mucho, Mexico! (Lo siento, no hablo bastante bien, se me olvido' tanto!)

7. Jesus. If I didn't love Him, NONE of what I mentioned above would mean anything at all. He is my reason for being, He CALLED me into being, and love wouldn't be anything but a word if He hadn't revealed the true meaning of love as He gave Himself for all on the Cross. If I love at all, it is only because HE loved first.

I tag.....

I look forward to reading all your favorite things! (You don't have to be as wordy as me, I'm just being me...and you know that and put up with me despite that character flaw...)

Muy divertido. Me gusta mucho a leer que tu escribas. (That's off the top of my head and much worse than yours).

Tara said...

Dandelions--very interesting combination of flowers, and weeds. I hope one day someone gives you such a bouquet!

Coffee and comming home--very nice.

Adoro said...

RJW ~ Esta bien...muy bien!

Tara~ It all depends on your definition of weeds. And that's part of the puzzle. ;-)

I knew someone would twist my words...


But, in the combox, I also point out that one tags more famous blogs as well, in an attempt to get noticed, which is why one has to go to the blogs and say "tagged" as those more famous bloggers would never notice one otherwise...

(Have I done enough grovelling yet??)

Adoro said...

ROFL! Not even necessary (although I wouldn't call myself "famous" by any stretch of the imagination! lol)

I think the famous bloggers are along the lines of Curt Jester and Fr. Z.! I'm nowhere near the same category. (whew!) :-)

Michaela said...

Shame on you, Adoro! lol you gave me the itch for The Sound of Music which I watched all last night, while eating the oatmeal cookies I had just made to send some to my brother in the air force. I'd forgotton how good that movie was! Thank you!!!!!!

Cathy_of_Alex said...

Geese flying so they are not pooping. Yes, I like the thought of that too! BUT, they can drop it while they fly. Stinkers!


Good list!

Thanks for tagging me! I'm just now getting to it. I'm such a slacker. ;)
