Annie at McGuffy's Reader and Ellen at 15andmeowing are co-hosting a weekly meme called Friendly Fill-In'sAll you have to do to participate is complete the statements and link your post up hereThis is a fun way to get to know each other a little better!

Here are the this week's statements:

1. I wish ____________ would bring back ______________.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is  __________________.

3.  I still have __________________ from my childhood.

4.  If I didn't have ___________________, I'd be completely lost.

Here are my answers:

1. I wish parents would bring back raising children with traditional values.

2. An act of kindness that I do often is taking advantage of opportunities to say or do something that will brighten someone's day, especially someone who isn't expecting it.

3.  I still have many memories from my childhood, some treasured, some not so much ;-)

4.  If I didn't have the Internet to connect me to my friends, I'd be completely lost, or at least very lonely.



  1. Our society would improve if #1 happened. Loved your other answers, too.

  2. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I wish the same thing as you for your #1. Sorry you have some bad childhood memories,but I am glad you have good ones too.

  3. Speaking of memories and the Internet, I have found what I consider to be a real treasure...newspaper archives online! Last night I found in an old personal/society page article where my mama, at age 6, went to have supper with some other family members. Where the Internet helps you to connect with your friends, it is helping me to connect with my family's history. I think it is great!

    I think it is sweet that you look for opportunities to brighten someone's day. I imagine that you brighten quite a few. :)

    Have a blessed weekend!

  4. It is as if parents today have kids they have no intention of raising. When people have kids and don't show them love or direction, our society can't help but go down hill.

  5. Yes, parents have a huge responsibility, but many of them shirk it.

  6. #1 - I'm doing my best!!! It's hard in this world that throws so much at our children that is shiny and full of (false) promise; constantly competing for their attention. I hope mine remember the values we are teaching when they choose their own path.
    I lived without my computer for over a week... and boy did I miss everyone's blogs!! :)

  7. I wish parent would raise their children as their children and not as their friends. As for connecting on the internet I have been an awful friend to many of my cyber are one of the names on the top of the list. I have too many irons in the fire with time factors that visiting my friends is not happening. Not sure when things will get back to normal. :(

  8. I am not sure why our generation raised children to be such "free thinkers". I think that the collective "we" made some mistakes that are irrevocable. Of course, the Internet has added to this free thinking dilemma.

    Kindness in speech is such an easy thing to do. I try to do this with everyone that I encounter throughout my day. It makes me feel good, too.

    Memories are a blessing and a curse for me. My memory is exceptionally good. Scary good. Bill is always amazed by the things I remember. I am, too, actually.

    Ah, you would not be lonely without the Internet! You have a phone, pen and paper, numbers and addresses! You would call and write. Friends are as close as that.

    Thank you for being a part of Friendly Fill-Ins. With Summer coming to a close, I plan to get back to my usual routine. I will be going back to Mayo Clinic this Fall, so hope to get some resolution for my health issues, too. I appreciate your patience and understanding. Hugs.
