Share Your World – 2016 – Week 3

I’ve never done this before but really liked the idea so I’m giving it a try!

I saw this challenge today: 
Share Your World – 2016 Week 3

I encourage you to go check it out!

The questions this week are:

1. What is your favorite piece of art? (It doesn’t have to be famous)

Currently, this one:   

My daughter Emily painted it this past fall. Emily is a wonderful young lady. She’s 17 years old and has Cri du chat syndrome. Over the last year, she decided to paint and I truly enjoy seeing her progress. 

She wants to build up her inventory and sell her art eventually. 

What do you think?

2. What made you smile today?

I make a conscious decision daily to be happy and smile. It starts first thing in the morning and I do my best to keep my smile on all day. 

At night, when putting Emily to bed, I sing to her (like I do every nights) and tickle her nose with my hair.  My mom used to do that to me 😊 It’s so annoying… and now I’m passing the tradition. 

This makes me smile. 

3. Which place do you recommend as a must-see?  Please state which country, state or providence. 

Percé, Québec, Canada

I grew up on the Gaspé coast and went to Percé Rock yearly as a kid. Either with my mom or with my school. 

We took Emily when she was only weeks old, back then, you could still walkto touch Percé Rock when the tide was out. Nowadays, we can no longer walk to the rock, the stairs have been removed and the tides are no longer monitored but Percé is still an amazing place to visit. 

This is Emily during our latest visit.

Side note, Percé is situated in the province of Québec. Bring a French dictionary and visit in summer.  😊The town shuts down in winter time!

4. When I was younger I used to…

Be a ballerina!    

The Bonus question 

5. What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the coming week. 

I am always grateful for my hubsband and daughter. 

Over the last week, I have been especially grateful for  Emily’s cheer club and team!

In the coming week, I am looking forward to my mom coming to visit. We last saw her in July and I can’t wait to hug her.  Just a couple of weeks before Christmas, there was a fire in her duplex. She lost all her material possessions. I have been wanting to hug her ever since getting that phone call.  I am really looking forward to spending time with my mom.
