Apparently, I'm bubbly

Here's my most recent LO. I had fun doing it, and my goofy husband made me laugh. Gotta love a man who thinks you're sexy no matter how screwy your hair is or that you're up to your elbows in dirty diapers! The conversation went something like this:

Hey, remember that digidare thing I've told you about?


Well, this week the challenge is to scrap about me. But I have to do it with one word that you would use to describe me. So... what one word would you use for me?

Just one? How about _______?

What?!? I can't use THAT on the digidare!

Well, you asked, and I told you the first word that comes to mind because you're so sexy!

Come on, please?

Ok, how about... Bubbly?


Yes, you're outgoing, and fun and a real people person. You're a total complement to me in that way, because I'm not those things. So we make a good pair.

How about "Kind, intelligent, beautiful, mother, wonderful?"

What? Oh, you mean the one word to describe me?

Yeah, I've been thinking about it all evening at work.... Well, when I wasn't actually working. There are so many wonderful words to describe you. I don't know if I can pick just one.

But I need just one.

I don't think I should have to pick just one, but if I do, I still think you're bubbly. And it's something I really love about you.

you can find the credits.

If you happen to read my blog (rather unlikely, but possible as I do have a few comments), you can see that I'm not a great blogger by any stretch. But when I was looking at the challenges at digiscrapshak, I found this one for a blogging entry on being RAK'd. I remember the first time I even heard the term Random Act of Kindness. I read an article probably 15+ years ago about "Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty" and was so touched by it that I photocopied it and gave it to friends and family. Now the term is common, but I still love it.

I had a friend treat me to a RAK recently. She's one of those people who always brings a smile to my face. She thinks of others before herself, but is also a joy to be around because she doesn't seem put upon for it. My DH and I were having company over for dinner. It was people I didn't really know (the wife works with my DH--I'd met her but not her DH or baby), which made me more anxious about it than I would normally have been. That same day, there was a baby shower for my SIL, which I obviously couldn't skip out on. So even though my house wasn't as tidy as I wanted, I went to the shower. As I was leaving a little early, I mentioned to my friend why I had to go. 20 minutes after I got home, she called to tell me that she was on her way over to help me finish cleaning. She showed up, grabbed a broom and set to work. We had a great time visiting while we worked and I felt so loved by her sweet act of service. She makes me want to be a better person. What better kind of friend or RAK is there?
