I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one – This time with a theme, Music!

So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. Plastic bag
  2. Chicken
  3. Sunglasses
  4. Quote
  5. Thermometer
  6. Coach
  7. Gas
  8. Tablet
  9. Magnify
  10. Speaker

wordsSo how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. 5p
  2. Chinese
  3. Red
  4. Insurance
  5. Different
  6. Travel
  7. Condemned
  8. Mum
  9. Sight
  10. Loud

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!

Crisis! A word that strikes fear and alarm when we hear it.

However as this quote from JFK states, even in a crisis, we need to remember that there is still time for opportunity.

So whenever you face a crisis in your life, be alert, stay safe, but also remember to reach out and grab the opportunity that the crisis presents to you.

August is month full of lots of family birthdays as well as our wedding anniversary (see yesterday’s clog post called Love). So today was one of my cousin’s 50th birthday!

So this afternoon I got a phone call at work to see whether Sandy and I wanted to go out for dinner with my cousin and all the rest of our family. Unfortunately Sandy did not feel up to going out tonight so I went along without him.

We all went for a lovely Chinese and a good old blether which was good as we don’t see each other all that much. It also got to see my cousins grandchild for the first time too, so that was good.


All in all it was a good night with my family, even though Sandy wasn’t with us.

Today I’d just like to say thank you to God once again for my family and the love they’ve all shown me over the years.

I pray too for those estranged from their family, and ask that reconciliation may be found so that they might all become one again. For those with no family, I pray they find someone special to them who they can share their lie with.

Thank you God for the love of family.

I’ve chosen the same song as yesterday to conclude, but make no apology for it as it is a song full of powerful words…The Power of Your Love, this time by Rebecca St James:
