YOUR THREE WORDS


I don't know who all watched Good Morning America on Thursday but they did a special on Three Words. This is an audience participation programing they have been doing on the week ends for quite a while. Then on Thursday, they involved most of the country in their exercise.

People were asked to describe either their lives, hopes, dreams, their feelings, fears, joys, loves or dislikes in just three words. I have always been impressed on the week ends with some of the 3 word messages. Some  were delightfully funny making me laugh, some quite poignant, some were truly profound.

I considered what might be  my defining 3 words. I thought of how many times I have offered “I'VE GOT NOTHING” as an opening line for my blog.

With tongue in cheek I thought of “TODAY, NOTHING HURTS” in honor of my aging  joints. 

Then thinking of my lifelong passion for the rescue of stray and abused animals along with the horror of how many sweet creatures are destroyed each year,  I have simply chosen,”PLEASE SPAY NEUTER.”

I am quite curious  what  your three words would be. One of the beauties of blogging is the education I get each post as I read your comments. We are a varied group yet often quite similar even with vastly different life experiences.

I really would love to read your 3 words.

  6. I read this and then had to go away ...I could not find the perfect 3 words ...found some ok 4 word groups though.
    Now I am back BUT have had to offer up several.
    THANKFUL FOR LIFE
    yet
    HATE BEING OLD
    and like your one about aches and pains
    FEELING GOOD TODAY
    but I think the the one that sums everything up is
    LIKE-MINDED FRIEND NEEDED.
    Yes I know I have a group of you out there that that are amazing and make life interesting and fun but I so long for one that is flesh and blood ... so I could pop in for a coffee ...not that I want much lol catlover, crafter, family historian,food lover, non athletic, enjoys a moan and reality TV,and loves discussing all manner of topics and is untidier than me ... lol xx

  7. I like Clint's and Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy's.

    I will go with "It works out".

    99.9% of the stuff I worry about never comes to fruition and what does wallop me upside the head I never saw coming, so I try to remind myself to not worry about things.

  10. I love that section but I had never given any thought to what my three words would be. I will have to think on that one.

  11. Mine would be those three words from Mother Teresa's prayer,
    "Do It Anyway"

  12. These types of assignments can really stretch the mind. I think this past year, my three words would be: Living after loss.

  15. NCmountain woman,
    I am so glad someone else has seen it. It is a favorite segment of mine.

    Barb,
    That is something we all need to do.

    Brighid,
    Mother Theresa is my heroine also.

    Retired English Teacher,
    That does describe the painful year you have had to endure.

    Grayquill,
    And I suspect, will always be.

    sweetmother,
    Clint's was popular(three more words). You had two great ones also.

  16. Husband's favorite saying is "living the dream". I think my three words would be a revised version of that- Living's the dream.

    Love that positiveness of that.

    I had a feeling yours would be in that vein.

  22. I have NOT had any trouble entering your site, my dear....You are probably correct that it is something between the other computer and yours---Or just a problem with the other person's computer.

    I really need to think about my three words---Though....I always end each post with MORE TO COME...so I think these may be my three words, right there...! (lol)

  23. I was at a loss, so I read everyone else's first.... so mine would be for now, "Miss my mom" and "Living after Loss".
