My subject is “Build” an imaginary person by taking the one best trait from different people you know. Which people would you choose and which of their traits would you use and why?  It was submitted by the awesome, the amazing Baking in a Tornado.  
Here goes: 



I LOVE this prompt!! When I first got it I knew exactly who I would use and what traits I would take from them! 
Let's get started!

First and foremost, I had THE BEST grandparents EVER!!!!!! From my grandmothers I would take loving and giving. They were the best at it. Anyone that had ever met them knew love.
From my grandfather it would have to be devotion. He was so devoted to his family. I can still remember watching grandpa and grandma cuddle on the couch. He would baby talk to her and she would giggle. They always held hands. Their love was inspiring.

I have an aunt that is the absolute embodiment of JOY! She is full of smiles and encouragement all the time. I have never once seen her angry. Just thinking about her lights me up.

I have another aunt that is always giving, of herself, of her time and yes, gifts as well. She always lets you know that you are important, that you have meaning. She is amazing.

They are the best people I have ever known or ever will know. I have been incredibly blessed to have them in my life. 

From my oldest son I would take his fearlessness. Sometimes it's a really good thing but other times it frightens me! LOL He knows no fear, of any kind. He has never met a stranger, never been intimidated by anything that has crossed his path. 

From my second oldest son, his brains!! LOL I have never met anyone with the ability to remember absolutely everything they have ever read. I am in awe!!! He is very logical and methodical but he also hilariously funny.

From my oldest daughter, her acceptance of self. She knows who she is and she likes herself. She doesn't succumb to peer pressure. She is herself and if someone doesn't like it that's THEIR problem not hers. She is also extremely tolerant of others. She has no prejudice of any nature.


From my youngest daughter, her bubbly personality. She is a friend to everyone she meets. She can walk into any situation and start up a conversation and make new friends. It's amazing. She has such a sweet and sensitive heart. 


From my youngest son, his inquisitiveness. He is curious about everything. He has such a hunger to know how things work and what things are. Where does this go? How was it made? What is it used for? Where is that place? What do they do there? It never ends and I love it. 

Last but not least, The Hubby. He has the strongest work ethic that I have ever seen. 60-70 hour work weeks are nothing new to him, even when he was on salary and NOT getting paid for those extra hours. 
He is an excellent provider. Are we rolling in money? No, but we don't need to be. We have what we need and a lot of what we want and it's all due to how much of a hard worker The Hubby is. His strong work ethic makes it possible for me to stay home with our kids, which we both think is the most important thing. 

The one thing that all of these people have in common is their loving nature. Each and everyone of them are so full love. I think that's the most important thing a person can have, a never ending capacity to love. I am the most fortunate of people. I have known and loved them all.

  1. Stacy, I LOVED reading about your family! So much warmth! No wonder you're such a lovely person!

    I was especially amazed by how diverse your kids are. Just great! I hope we'll stay in touch for a long time, cause I want to be part of those kiddos growing up and becoming young adults.

    Maybe I can place bets. Like Colin is going to work in research & development as an inventor, engineer, something along those lines :-)
