Let's start the week by using out OK, I know...what brain? smhair What things in life that you're truly passionate about? Let's leave out the obvious and dig into your soul.

For me it's volunteering and helping others. I've always been that way. Most recently hubby and I took in a college gal and her new baby. That was 2 years ago and now we are preparing a wedding for our newest 'daughter' and we are the proud grandparents to that baby boy who is now over 2 years old. They both are the delight of our lives....along with our other kids and grandkids. Seeing these two young adults start their married lives together warms my soul.

And you can all see I love to volunteer. smilewinkgrin Been going that as long as I can remember and hope to keep it up.

What's your passion?

Reading and helping animals.
Reading is the greatest excape I have ever found from lifes little issues.

Animals are a passion because of their nature and innocence. No animal has ever commited a crime of hate, nor made fun of a person.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

I love to volunteer too. I haven't done much of that lately but I have always supported the ASPCA to help abused and neglected animals. I also liked to donate my time (when I was feeling better) at the schools. I would help out in the classrooms. Plus, in the past I was a Girl Scout leader. That was the best experience of my life. I loved to go to the meetings with the young girls and help them become stronger women. I have watched some of them grow up to be fine young ladies and it warms my heart to know that I had a hand in that development. I wished I could do more though! But for right now, my passion is Healingwell! :)

I like this topic. The art of dance, teaching, and choreographing is my passion. I can hear a piece of music and map out a whole dance in my mind. The feeling I get teaching kids and to see them excel in the studio and finally perfect something they've been working on for months. I love children and animals as well...I just feel good around them :)
