Fridays Feasting

Long week, time for the lazy post :)

Appetizer
When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?
Even though I am the initiator of most smile exchanges, I do try to always return a smile… however a fake laugh does get on my nerves.

Soup
Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?
Mix of carpet and vinyl but would love it to be hard wood and ceramic.

Salad
Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.
Just John

Main Course
Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?
I know of two people that were adopted and it has been with mixed results. While they all lived very good lives, as a friend I did get to notice that they felt some kind of abandonment. I know that this does not happen to everyone that is adopted but its something that I have seen first hand and its always in the back of my head when I think of adoption.

Dessert
Name 2 blue things.
I love blue, so there is a lot of stuff but right now I see the blue on the wordpress interface and the blue blinking light on the Wii.

  1. I wonder if that feeling of abandonment is common. I hope not.

  2. Great feast! I’m having fun reading everyone’s Salad. How interesting they all are.

    It’s wonderful reading all the adoption stories.

    Come on over and feast with me.

  3. Dude, you so totally cheated on your salad, thats not 5 words.

    How bout- John jumps Jim Jr jokingly.

  4. I’m not comfortable with my smile so I seldom initiate but I will smile back!

    Sorry about your friend… but feeling abandoned is a common issue, even with kids who were not adopted but who come from divorce or even through the death of a parent. It’s just something they need to learn to work through… it’s tough but most of us have something to deal with no matter what our circumstances. We just have to make the most of where we come from.

    I agree with Nuke… you so cheated on the salad! lol

    Have a great weekend and drop by if you can!

    Just Some Thoughts

  5. My salad would be: My mantra matches mojitos: more!

  6. I’m adopted and I never really had that feeling from the adoption itself, but rather the way my adopted parents behaved toward me and all of my siblings. I think it depends on how the adoptive family treats the adopted kid. Even with all of our problems growing up, my family NEVER treated me like I was different or really even mentioned the fact that I was adopted. In fact, even when I bring it up now, they’re almost hurt that I even think of it — like I don’t want to be connected to them.
