Weekend Wandering comes in very handy sometimes, giving me a helping hand in choosing a theme for a post. This week, David asked "What Is The Best Decision You Ever Made?"
I was really stumped with this one and wondered whether to leave it this week! However, I decided to start the post in the hope that something would jump out of the key board!
Well, my thoughts on the subject are probably what every one else will say, the day I said "Yes" to Harry! Hopefully no one else said "Yes" to him! But you know what I mean. The decision to marry someone, hopefully is the best decision you will ever make.
I often wonder what it would have been like if I hadn't have said "Yes." My family would be non existent & my life would be what? I don't know! Anyway........ I'm really glad I did say "Yes."
This year we will celebrate our forty fifth anniversary!
However, there are other important things that I have done. I have already written in a post about my faith, that I was baptized after being converted to Christianity at forty one years of age by total immersion. That was a fairly profound thing to do and it has certainly changed my life for the better and not only in this life but the next too.
On a lighter note...... when my son told me that he was buying me a computer eight years ago, I told him I would not be at all able to cope with it & had no interest in one what so ever. As usual, he took no notice and bought one any way on one of his visits home from Japan. It was a pink iMac, a strange shaped one quite unlike the flat screened one I have today. I had one week to learn to email and before that I had never even switched a computer on. I was a bit scared of it at first but later progressed to web cams and had chats with the grand daughters when they eventually came into the world. This really did open up my life to family on the other side of the globe.
Well the rest you know. That first computer led the way to the blogging and that has opened up new horizons too! However, I did have to make a decision to use the computer and not send it back. I am really pleased that I made the decision to keep it, now.
The pink iMac is still going strong, but was not fast enough for web cams or blogging, so the girls watch CDs and play games on it. I will always have a soft spot for it though.
Well........ how do I choose the most important decision I ever made. I want to say husband & family. I will definitely not say the computer! Because these things are transient & will pass away or break down ........... sorry Harry and family..... it has to be my trust and faith in Jesus because that will be for ever!
