If you have the time ALL for YOURSELF, what will you do?

Have you ever heard of the song, “Que sera sera?”

When I was just a little girl, I used to sing this song a lot!
This probably was the first song I sang!

So this week, as I went trick or treating with my 8yo, who is now sick with swine flu,
 the view of our block reminded me of something I’ve always dreamed of…

I just love nature! I would love to just capture its beauty or its rage with paintbrush!


So as the song goes,

          When I was just a little girl
           I asked my mother, what will I be
           Will I be pretty, will I be rich
           Here's what she said to me.

            Que Sera, Sera,
            Whatever will be, will be
            The future's not ours, to see
            Que Sera, Sera

             What will be, will be.

So this week, my question to you is:

“If you have one week or one moment to do whatever you want – for YOU,
  Not for your kids, not for your husband or for your family
  BUT for YOU…what would like to be doing in that moment?

PS:  My 8yo only has a mild case of the swine flu (thank G-d).
      He’s still doing is handstand every moment he gets!

  1. Okay, I'll go for "moment" because that's more realistic for me (hah!) --have a spa treatment, the works!

  2. So glad that your baby boy is still doing handstands. That's a good sign.

    I'm not sure what I would do..I guess listen to the sounds of silence and nature....feel the cool wind on my face and then have a picnic lunch at a nice shady park.

  3. Hi Jen!! Oh no..I'll be praying for your son!! My 7 yr old son just got a fever today and we're praying it's not SF.

    If I had a week? I'd visit my sister in Hawaii.

  4. @Buckeroomama - a spa would be really a treat!

    @Chocolate Covered Dreams - We have a digital thermometer..my little guy keeps taking his temp and writing it down and jumping in joy when it records below 98!

    @Alicia, thanks for the prayers. Get your 7yo checked to make sure its not SF. The meds only work if its within 48 hours...Hawaii? I've never been to Hawaii...that would be awesome!

    If I had a week,I'll sleep long hours! I would love to paint and dance!

  5. That song reminded me of a movie I watched yesterday entitled "Max and Mary". Highly recommended. Briefly, it's about the friendship of two most unlikely people. Sometimes strangers make the best friends.

    Lova ya, Jenjen!!
