Kathrynzj says at RevGals: In honor of BE Three I thought I'd offer up a Friday Five of lifesavers. I'm going on our cruise (are you?) because I am excited about meeting up with my blogging buddies again, I am interested in the speaker and because when I went on the first one my life was saved (okay, that may be a little over-dramatized but if you saw me getting on the boat and then the difference when getting off the boat you would know of what I speak).
I don't expect - or need - another life saving moment but I want to support the conference.
Of course lifesavers can come in all sizes and with far less drama. I would readily admit that I have considered a person (children's sermon substitute), the location of a bathroom, and a beverage (the last diet coke in the back of the fridge - score!) all to be lifesavers at one point or another.
And so today I ask you - dramatic or fairly common - what have been/are your lifesavers:
First off...I can't attend the BE Three, and I am very sad. But it is at a bad time for my work and I would be MORE stressed if I were away then. Or at least when I got back!!
1) Your lifesaving food/beverage. Hmm, right now it's Diet A&W Root Beer. Frosty Mug Taste!
3) Your lifesaving movie/book/tv show/music. I'm still stuck on old episodes of "Friends" and "That 70's Show" on the TV, and on Hulu'd episodes of "Glee".
4) Your lifesaving friend. My mama! The other day I had something unexpected come up and I had to leave where I was and drive back to work. I realized I was driving ANGRILY. Not good on I-35. Not good. I called and talked to Mom and felt lots better.
5) Your lifesaving moment. Right now it's seeing trees in glorious color change...we don't have many around here that do it, so seeing one is a great treat. There's a rain tree next to my building, big one, with all yellow leaves and a great big splotch of auburn on one side. Like God kissed it.
