A to Z Theme 2016
For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Judgement Reserved (#atozchallenge 2013)
Love looks through a telescope; envy through a microscope. ~ Josh Billings ~
Judging others can sometimes be difficult for us not to do. When we first begin to love someone, judgment is often set aside because we are so captivated by a new lover or friend. Then as time goes by and the newness wears off, we sometimes start noticing things we missed in the earliest stages of a relationship. We begin to see through the judge's eyes.
Over time we pick up on quirks and habits that may begin to bother or even annoy us. Accept them. That's who they are. If you love, there are some things you should let go. If something was once endearing, why should it become irksome? If we loved a person for who they were when we met them, then we should love who they are now.
People can change and change can be for the good or for the bad. Take care when we judge. Is the judgement warranted? Is that person helping themselves in what they do? Are they hurting us or others? Sometimes judgement is necessary. Be sure that our judgement is meant to help others and not just make ourselves seem better.
