You 8 Wednesday

Normally I 8 Wednesdays (how’s that for whacked out grammar?) but today it’s your turn.

In 8 words I want you to tell me why you’re here (as in here on earth not here at my blog).

Sentence or no sentence, I’m not picky.

  1. Okay, cracking me up. I love your answers...but I was thinking exactly 8 words...otherwise you're not quite 8ing Wed.
    ~ Wendy

  2. I'm here to share life through my words.

  3. Rob, Susan, Paul, Scott, Mark, Danika, Katherine, Bethany

  4. Ummmmmm??? This is too hard for me. lol I don't KNOW why I'm here but I can give you 8 reasons I'm glad I'm here. :-)

    2. Chocolate is fun to eat.
    3. Love, like the God-kind. It's goose-bumpy sometimes, in a good way.
    4. Sitting in the sun. It's peaceful.
    5. Books/Imagination. That's when I'm here, but not really here, and yet I'm glad to be here so I can not really be here. *grin*
    6. Life Just breathing and being. There's something sweet and valuable about it.
    7. Family/Friends/Laughter They seem to go together a lot. :-)
    8. Service Helping others. I think that's part of showing God's love

    I didn't put Jesus because I don't need to be HERE to be with Him. So He's a given. :-)
