Today is the 16th day of Blogmas and honestly I was having writers block until I read my devotions this Morning. I thought how neat and interesting it would be if I wrote on the uniqueness of snowflakes. With winter here and some of got 5 to 7 inches of snow it’s interesting to just watch the snowflakes. So I decided to do Day 16 on Snowflakes(The Legend Of The Snowflake).

As people we are unique ourselves. None of us is alike and we all have different passions, different likes and different dislikes. Also, some of us like cats for pets, some like dogs for pets, some like like both cats and dogs and some like snakes. Yes I said snakes. Now that you know how unique we are let’s go onto snowflakes.

Snowflakes are unique too only in different ways. In fact there is not one snowflake that is alike. Even though some snowflakes are extra small, some snowflakes are small, some snowflakes are medium size and some snowflakes are big but all snowflakes are unique no matter what size they are. All snowflakes even taste different  But despite that we are taught snowflakes are unique the question remains are they really? I did some research on this question and found some Links For The Uniqueness Of Snowflakes.  I found it interesting and hope you do too.

I’ve added some of my own pictures as well of some images from the internet. ENJOY.

MY 1ST UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD

 

 

Hello Friends, I wanted to send my gratitude to PENandPAPER who nominated EVERYONE because every blogger is unique in their own way. PENandPAPER has helped me greatly especially when I get frustrated with my blogs. Telling me that my blogs are unique in their own way made me realize I don’t need to be perfect. I just do my best on my blogs and suggest everyone do the same thing. If you’d like to meet this amazing blogger who has an amazing site and is helpful to, please click here. I also suggest you follow this blog if you’re looking for a good blog to follow. The link of the blogger that showed love to me for blogging is THE UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD

RULES FOR THE UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD:

  1. Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you.
  2. Answer their Questions.
  3. In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  4. Ask them 3 questions.

QUESTIONS ASKED BY PENandPAPER:

  1. What is the inspiration behind your blog content? When I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I started it because I wanted to have fun and see what blogging is all about. I liked the fact of self publishing my posts, stories, pictures and more on my site and sharing them with others. I also like meeting other bloggers.
  2. What is your favorite time of the year and why? My favorite time of the year has probably got to be December 19 to the 25th because that’s the timeline when my birthday comes and I just love Christmas because that’s when Christ was born and started his mission to die for our sins.
  3. What is your favorite book and why? (Or movie if you don’t read) Like PENandPAPER, the Bible is my favorite book too. The Bible is a good book to read and it’s a best seller. As for worldly books, I like most mystery/suspense books mostly because they have you on the edge of your seat guessing who done it. If I didn’t read, the movies I would choose is Dirty Dancing and Grease. Why? They’re good movies.

MY NOMINEES ARE:

I follow several good blogs and can’t just choose 8-13 blogs and after seeing that PENandPAPER nominated Everyone because every blogger is unique in their own way, I thought I would do the same thing. So my nominees are EVERYONE. 

MY QUESTIONS TO ALL OF MY NOMINEES ARE:

  1. What is the inspiration behind your blog(s) and why?
  2. What is your favorite extracurricular activity?

Choices: Good And Bad

 

Above are examples of choices. On the left, someone is choosing to go into the service and on the right a bear choosing to get something to eat in someone’s backyard. Both examples are risky choices.

We are given the ability to have choices to teach us responsibility. From a young age we are taught Right from wrong. When we get to our Pre-teen and teenage years, we choose for ourselves. Sometimes we make the right choice and sometimes we make the wrong choice.  Sometimes we regret the bad choices we make.

So before we make a choice be sure to think it through before you choose to go that way.  There is always a risk involved with whatever you choose but sometimes the risk pays off and sometimes it doesn’t.

If you don’t want to choose the wrong choice, here are some tips you can go by:

  1. Don’t hang out with the wrong crowd.
  2. Before making your choice think it through.
  3. Write the Pros down.
  4. Write the Cons down.
  5. Weigh the Pros and Cons.

You’ll find if you do some or all of these steps, it will help you make the best choice. However, remember animals don’t have this luxury.
