  1. Paula, you look beautiful in your picture, did you know that only 2% of us in the WORLD have Green Eyes.

    I really enjoyed reading this, ( I am now trying to write down 25 Facts about ME ).

    My daughter also does not like any foods with raisins in them (I found you, as you have recently started to follow her @laura_jade_Jackson )

    France is also one of our favourite places to go. Do you visit often? As it is good to feed your soul.

    My daughter and are also fans of Tiffany blue, when my mother died, she left a Tiffany heart necklace to be given to her on her 21st birthday. ( she wears it all the time & on the 1st & 13th picture on her instagram)

    SNUGGLE-TIME…… Love it, ( on my daughters day off, she rings me, I am only downstairs! to go to her room for snuggle time)… As you say ” the value of a moment” I am making the most of it as soon she will have family of her own.

    I also love folding freshly dried laundry, Off the washing line as I live on top of a very high green hill 364 acres, with a pine tree forest next to the house. The smell of the sheets & towels is amazing!

    It is VERY interesting that you are an ordained minister and your major was Religion and philosophy. At 50 years of age,(some time ago now) one of my goals was to pursue P E A C E at all costs, which includes being a Christian & being Baptised. Of course this is a lifelong process, of self improvement, in a world full of challenges, as you know.

    It’s strange, I also love, and own enough blank notebooks to open my own store.

    Paula, thank you for this post. loved reading it,

    Peace, Love, & Blessing to you and yours.
