“I have great belief in the fact that whenever there is chaos,
it creates wonderful thinking. I consider chaos a gift.” ~Septima Clark

December 30 – Gift
This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year? (Author: Holly Root) [The #reverb10 project.]

2010 was full of unbelievable blessings.
I was given the gift of sleep.
I was given the gift of awakening.
I was given the gift of mobility.
I was given the gift of history.
I was given the gift of pride in my home.

2010 was also beyond chaotic.
I tend to thrive in chaos.
It makes me stronger.
It’s a gift.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.


  1. Yes!!

  2. Noel ~ That is my very FAVORITE Nietzsche quote. I've used it before. ;)

  3. Sounds like some great gifts to me. Are you happy or sad to be writing your last reverb post?

  4. OMG I am Champion of Controled Chaos! I thrive in it. Drives everyone in my life a little crazy. But then, I prefer crazy people.

    BTW... Hello old friend. :)

  5. Chaos. What a fabulous gift to have! Please don't go anywhere after #reverb10, Beth. Pinky swear.

  6. @Jason ~ I'm glad. It's been a good run. I needed the revitalization if nothing else. You?
    @MELAIN!! ~ Hooray for the crazies! Are you back to the blogosphere?!
    Stereo ~ PINKY SWEAR!

  7. Quite a list, and all those!

    Normal people are boring, bring on the crazies!
