Hi there! My name is Kelly. I'm a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 13 now! I've lived all over the country and even in Hawaii. Right now, I'm currently in Southeast Missouri. Throughout my adult life, I've wanted to find a forum of some sort that encourages other Christian women. I've found wonderful craft blogs, weight loss sites, motherhood sites, book clubs, etc. So I am going to try my hand at a blog that contains a little bit of everything. Grab a cup of coffee and let's chat!!

Monday Quiz

I'm joining Heather today over at Acting Balanced for her Monday Quiz event!

Acting Balanced

The 4 questions for today are these: (adding on a 5th question of my own for you to answer!)

1. Who was the last person you said 'I love you to?'
2. What was the last non-kid friendly movie you saw?
3. When was the last time you got angry about something that you felt silly about later?
4. Where is your favorite object at this moment?
5. (to be announced)
And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!
 1.  The last person that I said, "I love you" to would  be my 16-month old granddaughter, Allison.  I had been trying to get her to take a nap for the last 2 hours and she was really being difficult.  So, I picked her up and began singing the "Cuppy-cake" song to her and she started to calm down so I laid her back in her bed and our ritual is usually, kisses, tuck in "snug as a bug in a rug",  and "I love you".  She is sleeping beautifully at this moment.  Whew!
2.  The last non-kid friendly I watched was "Wolfman" with Anthony Hopkins.  There was quite a bit of gore and disemboweling, with it's fair share of blood.  Which I was really unprepared for, not realizing that it contained as much as it did.  Decent movie, but Benicio De Toro's acting left a bit to be desired.  He didn't convince me of his "angst".  
3.  The last time I got angry about something ... let me see ... Well, to be honest, it really takes a lot to make me angry.  My feelings get hurt before anger will set in.  The only thing that takes a split second to make me angry about is the broken promises and the abuse and/or neglect of children.  I will not hesitate to say something, do something, or react to something regarding children.  And...I usually don't feel silly about it... (unless it's with one of my kids.... sometimes I don't give them the benefit of the doubt and I'll jump in when not needed).  But I have no troubles with apologizing if needed.
4.  My favorite object, at this moment, is sitting on the shelf above my desk.  I blogged about it last year in answer to a question, and it's still my favoriteFavorite Item.
       ...and now my question...
5.  What are your feelings regarding the over-saturated "Politically Correct" society that we've become?  Do you think that it's important ALL the time? Only in certain instances? or Not necessary at all?  Explain why you feel this way.

I think "politically correct" is a sad statement that people need a "rule" to be sensible and respectful to others. Sometimes it gets overdone. There is nothing wrong with being a custodian, the job really doesn't require any sort of engineer. But calling a professional an assistant rather than the dated secretary better reflects the job. Camera operator rather than cameraman, excellent.

Oh, and I am Ms. not Mrs. to someone who doesn't know me and heaven help anyone who addresses me as Mrs. David; I took my husband's last name as decision of choice but I didn't take his identity.

Politically correct means we are in the process of making it socially unacceptable to be disrespectful or make assumptions about people's character based on prejudice. I think politically correct is wonderful; it just saddens me that it's necessary.

The problem is not the ideas but the level of discourse that accompanies them. When people use political correctness to limit the exchange of ideas, it becomes a form of suppression. On the other hand, there are ways to express your ideas that are respectful as well. It is a balancing act. Thanks for joining in on the MQAM.

In the appropriate place there is endless debate, but this is a statement and one I support.

As for 'not all Christians' I had a conversation at the height of the child abuse revelations with a Catholic woman who said "but not all Christians are like that". Despite her revulsion for what was happening she still supported the church and thought it was wonderful. She really was a nice person - as I freely admitted - aside from her ability to hold two opposing opinions about the church in her head at one time.

Political Correctness is a tool to get people to conform to the, ever changing, societal whims of the day. I try and apply biblical standards to these opinions put forth if they don't conflict then I consider there value otherwise they get rejected up front.
