This Fun Monday hostess is the creative and candid Karina. For the challenge this week, Karina wants to see our security blankets or the things that we must positively take with us when we leave our homes. At first, I declined participation in this challenge because I could not think of anything that I absolutely need to have at all times. However after thinking this through, there is one item that I always, always have. I always have my glasses. Usually, I am wearing my specs because seeing at all times is very important to me. I used to have 20/20 vision. As I aged, like most (ah) mature adults, I developed presbyopia. At first, I needed the correction for reading and close-up work, but eventually my vision changed such that I needed correction for all distances. My glasses have progressive lens that allow me to see close-up, faraway, and in between. I wear my glasses during all my waking hours. If I am asleep, my glasses are on my nightstand, and I wear my glasses if I get up in the middle of the night. So my security really is vested in my glasses because they allow me to see almost as well as I used to see.
In addition to the glasses, when I leave my house on a work day, there are some things that I should take with me such as my purse, my phone, my personal keys, my school keys, and my ID.
On Sundays, I take these items to church, a satin purse, my flash drive, (I create PowerPoint announcements for our worship services) and whichever book that we are studying in our adult class. We currently studying The Faiths of Our Founding Fathers by David L. Holmes.
Now, check out what our other Fun Monday buddies need for security.
