Thankful Thursday and a Flower "Quiz"

You Are A Lily

You are a nurturer and all around natural therapist.
People see you as their rock. And they are able to depend on you.
You are a soothing influence. You can make people feel better with a few words.
Your caring has more of an impact than even you realize.


I believe this is true of me, and I love lillies, especially stargazer and calla lillies. I think my purpose here on Earth is to mother, teach, and guide. But sometimes I get so tired. I want to be nurtured. I get so tired of giving, and giving, and giving all the time. I wonder if other people ever feel that way.


In the long run, I am thankful to have the gifts that God gave me, and I know that instead of whining, I should be grateful, so I'm going to ask God for graciousness and try to be thankful for all that I have.

Sure. When my mom in law died I had this horrible feeling that I would have to grow up and become the nurturer now. It wasn't so bad, but at the time I felt so selfishly alone and unpampered. Thanks for posting on my 13 facts about roads. Actually, "where a road leads is more important than how it is paved" is my favorite too. I got it from an old family story that I'm going to tell someday.
