Can I pull off a Meme Including ALS?

If I were a month, I'd be May which speaks of renewal and it's ALS Awareness Month

If I were a day, I'd be Monday because it's the start my week after a hectic weekend. I love beginnings.

If I were a time of the day, I'd be 10am because that's when I awake and have my coffee, in the fresh mountain air.

If I were a season, I'd be fall because my muscles have been worked in the summer and I'm strongest in fall. Bonus is the tree colors.

If I were a planet, I'd be Saturn because it's unique and beautiful.

If I were a direction, I'd be north keeping me close to God and I love Northern California where I live.

If I were a drink, I'd be a glass of ice tea w/no sugar. Gives me energy when my ALS tries to steal it away.

If I were a tree, I'd be a redwood living long and strong.

If I were an animal, I'd be a dog. They need you and give back unconditional love.

If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a guitar. It's held and strummed with passion.

If I were a fruit, I'd be a passion fruit. Sweet and colorful.

If I were a food, I'd be a pasta. Very versatile and energy boosting.

If I were a celebrity, I'd say Hugh Lorie because he's sarcastic and his mom died of ALS. He could really impact awareness.

If I were a color, I'd be red because it looks good on me, my hair and ALS color.

If I were a book, I'd be a romance novel because I'm a true romantic.

If I were a song, I'd be Stairway to Heaven, a high school fav sung by a crush.

If I were a movie, I'd be Pretty Woman or Dirty Dancing.

If I were a flower, I'd be Jasmine for the sweet smell and climbing vines.

If I were a facial expression, I'd be wonder. I'm in awe of nature and love.

I first heard about ALS when I read "Tuesdays with Morrie" ... i still love that book ...

I'd have liked to ask you questions , but fear that I'd be intruding on your privacy / my questions might make offend you. MAybe as we get to know each other well, I can ask you certain question I'd after reading the book. I wanted to talk to someone who has experienced ALS .. but ...

Your blog is very inspiring. I like the look of it, the music, and -of course- your words.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Feral cats can be a challenge; but once they learn how to trust, they make wonderful pets.

I just read the story of you and Pam and commented, then went back to look at Pam's blog, not realizing she had died, even tho' your link indicates such.

I am sorry for your loss. She sounds amazing. How fortunate to have had her in your life.

It appears you can do anything that you set your mind to. I'll bet you even meet Hugh Laurie someday!
