3.) Describe a phone call you won’t forget.
4.) A list of 10 Celebrity DON’TS
5.) Write a poem about your favorite place to be.
I chose Prompt 2: If my Mom were a blogger
I sadly do not know a lot about my mom other than what those who knew her tell me. She was taken from me when I was 5mos old. If she did blog I imagine it might be as follows:

To my darling daughter who has braved the earthly world on her own, I am so proud of the woman you have become. I cannot wait til the day we can hold each other again. Til then, I do so hope you enjoy my blogging attempt.
It's a shame that the course of life took us from each other my darling girl but while I'm here in Heaven I think I shall blog about it. Of course, I first had to figure out what a blog was and why it seems to be all the rage of late. Lord knows I've seen some trends in my days, both on earth and from up above. This one though, seems to be a keeper. What inpired me, I think it was watching you try your hand at blogging and adding a 30 Day Music Challenge to the mix. I however, cannot take the 30 Day Music as many of the artists I might list are residing and that could cause troubles amongst them and me. Instead, I'll give y'all some dish about heavenly goings on without crossing the line of right and wrong too much, I hope. I might also add of my motherly advice to things you are experiencing.

Clearly I have not taken this blogging as seriously as my daughter seeing as how this is my first post in 5 days. You'd think that being up here means I have loads of time on my hands. Sadly, I don't really. I'm of course busy watching over you and then there are our chores. What?! You did know that chores never really go away, didn't you?
Well in any case, we do. We all pitch in to help keep heaven heavenly. Today was my day to go collect the recyclables. Of course, some take recycling more seriously than others. As is the case on Earth, too. Now really, it seems to be the same thing every week no matter who is picking up the recycling around here. Walter, that old codger, never does set out any recycling. Of course, Faith is his next door neighbor. She thinks it's her responsibility to educate him without fail every week of recycling. While one must admire her resolve I really think it's time she just let it go.
Imagine my surprise when I stopped by their houses today and not only did Faith have her bins out but Walter did, too! What in the name of heaven got into him?
Then it happened.
As I was driving off I saw them sitting together on his porch sipping iced tea and giggling. Of all things, giggling! I dare say they are headed down the road of courtship and isn't that just lovely! Wonder how long the peace tween them will last?

Oh My Darling Daughter! I think your song choice today is funny. I've seen you dance and while it is a pleasing sight I must concur you have no rhythm. I think it comes from you dad's side. I could tell you stories about our younger days that would make your hair stand on end and laugh at the same time. I did my fair share of dancing! Someday I shall tell of the grand times your dad and I had. Man was he the life of the party. He sure did rock and roll a bit and I sure did dance! I'm forever glad that my sense of fun has passed onto you, sorry couldn't pass on the dancing gene.

Well, it's official! Faith and Walter must be a serious couple! They sat together in church yesterday. It's so cute to watch them. It made me think of me and your Dad and the days we had like that. I know you are struggling with what he's going through with his cancer. I am glad that you are there for him and that he has such good people around him. I'm even happier that you have just as good a support system around you. Keep your chin up my darling girl! You are so much stronger and braver than you know. I love you!
This is just my take on what a blog from my Mom might be like. I feel like she's with me at all times celebrating my good moments and supporting me through the bad.
