Share Your World From 1-25-21

I am a day late and a dollar short her, but it is my time to SHARE MY WORLD! This is the weekly challenge where Melanie asks us all several questions and in answering them we share our worlds. To be honest I think we all need to share our worlds a little more amicably now than ever before. So this is a very important challenge to take. When you have finished reading my answers below, please swing over to Melanie’s blog and read the other responses to it. Maybe you could even take a few minutes and answer some of the questions for yourself.


Is it necessary to trust someone you like?  (friends, acquaintances or co-workers with whom you have no familial ties)

Well I think it always helpful if you can trust the people you like, but I have to admit there are several people I really like, because they are fun to be around, but I do not trust them as far as I can throw them

Do you hold grudges?   What do you do when someone really irritates you?

No I try not to hold grudges. They are super unhealthy in every way. I try to forgive and forget-ish ( I am not sure humans can really accomplish that last part but we can put the subject that makes us grudgy far from our minds by filling our minds with other things)

When people irritate me (which happens with relative frequency) I generally pray and then eat something yummy and find a good story to get lost in.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve heard someone say?

People say sensible things to me all the time….when they are not spouting nonsense of course….recently though I would have to say the most sensible thing I have heard is “Let’s just move on.”

Is crying a sign of weakness or strength in adults? 

I think it can be both. Some people would be a whole lot stronger if they would just give their emotions an outlet…. God didn’t make us to be emotional eunuchs.

Then there are others …..I just want to shake and say….”Get over it!” …..”It’s time to quit crying and move on!”…..”You are going to die in this valley of tears if you don’t put your big girl/boy pants on and deal with life!”

What small things were you grateful for this week?


I am grateful for all the people who have helped us during our quarantine. So thankful for the family that has been shopping for us, and the lady who has been bringing my mother papers everyday. I am thankful for the people who have made and bought us meals. I am thankful for the lady who brought my sister flowers. I am thankful for the Facebook check-ins and all the prayers!!!!

  1. Thank you sincerely Joseph for Sharing Your World! Very thoughtful answers with some nuggets of pure gold (vis a vis advice) in there too! I am sorry to hear you had to quarantine, but it’s rare to find someone these days who hasn’t had to. I hope you and your family stay healthy and well!

    • This is true. Our part of the state has been very heavily effected this month. Our local hospital has one whole floor dedicated to Covid patients and several ICU beds as well. We were very blessed that Brenda was able to come home and convalesce here.
