Me, Myself and I

1. What are your top 5 movies to watch during the holidays?
Polar Express
Edward Scissor Hands
Bad Santa
Miracle on 34th Street
Home Alone

2. What are you thankful for?
It's hard for me to pinpoint a couple of things. I'm grateful for a lot. I'm not always super fantastically awesome at showing it but at the top of my list are: my family, my friends, my experiences, the love and positive influence I have in my life.

3. If there was a verse to describe your life, what would it be?
After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul, and you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security, and you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises, and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and you eyes open, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child, and you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is to uncertain for plans. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get to much. So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure…that you really are strong, and you really do have worth.

4. Who in your family are you most like?
My dad is an Accountant
My mom is a Bookkeeper
My sister is a Probation Officer
I'm...the black sheep. 
I suppose I'm a little like all of them. My mom and I share perseverance and compassion. My dad and I share bluntness. My sister and I share stubbornness. 

5. What is your favourite drink to order at Starbucks?
Well in this sense I'm really not that exciting. A grande non fat latte, with two milk chocolate covered Graham crackers. Pretty much every time.

Thanks for the idea:

    Hi, I'm a new follower to your blog, coming by way of the Link Up Party. This is my first time at this link party, because I thought the questions were too good to not answer :) Also, am I the only one with non-Christmassy movie choices? Hmm...

    Don't be a stranger now; I do hope you will stop by to say Hi too!
