  1. Hello friend … here’s my take on it …

    1. If you could have any superpower, which one would you have and why?
    To create and raise another human being … I think that is a superpower … Kudos to all moms out there!!! … I hope to be one someday

    2. Who is your style icon?
    Reese Witherspoon … I like how she dresses … simple and chic

    3. What is your favorite quote?
    Don’t know who said this, but this is my favorite –“Have fun. Be good. Smile. Laugh. Hug. But mostly, love.”

    4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
    A smile, hug and a thank you from Paolo – one of the streetkids I met during an outreach I did with some friends. He said, “Salamat po sa malaking puso n’yo (Thank you for your big heart!)”. That gave me a moment … a moment I’ll never forget!

    5. What playlist/cd is in your CD player/iPod right now?
    Mostly R&B and Acoustic

    6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
    Night owl

    Dogs. I have 4 special ones and they are just “joys” in my life

    8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
    reflections + my nickname “J” … the blog is my online journal of when my heart speaks of calm reflections, inspirations, thoughts, ramblings, conversations, and of my highs and lows.

      I knew it, I have a superpower!
      I’m so happy sistah that you’re here.
      And yes I saw how you live your quote
      and inspire me to do the same.
      Paolo knows how to spot a golden heart
      which my kiddos also discovered.
      We miss you!

  2. This sounds like fun. Here’s my take:
    1. My son asks me this question all the time, and I’m never sure what to answer. I guess the power to heal, both physically and spiritually.
    2. Comfort is my fashion icon.
    3. “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but through me.” Jesus Christ.
    4. A non-Christian friend once told me “I’ve never known anyone for whom their faith was so all encompassing of their life.” I don’t think she meant it as a compliment, but I took it as one.
    5. Christian playlist on my iPod includes everything from Johnny Cash gospel to Jeremy Camp to Third Day to the Newsboys to P.O.D. I have other playlists, but hardly ever listen to them.
    6. Night owl. Mornings and I have an uneasy relationship.
    7. Dogs, definitely. But I do love my cat, too, as I discovered when he disappeared for 16 days.
    8. Not very original. It’s just my name. I added the tag line to indicate the types of things I would write about before I really knew what I was going to write about.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      may you have that power
      and heal the aching world!
      your faith is indeed oozing

      and your cat is sure lucky
      what more are we 🙂

      can’t wait to see a photo

  5. rtcrita Says:

    1. TO FLY. Because I am terribly afraid of heights–except in my dreams where I have the ability to fly above the trees and buildings, looking down on everything that is going on below. Plus, it helps me to avoid driving through traffic, thus eliminating any possibility of road rage!
    2. When I was young, I wanted to be like Marlo Thomas in That Girl. I wanted to look just like her–from her hairstyle to her boots. Now, I dress for me and what makes me feel comfortable and confident. (Makes it sound like I dress in mini-pads!)Okay, how about I just say I have my “fat clothes” and then there’s everything else. Mostly casual and classic style.
    3. “A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.”–The Wizard to the Tin Man in the Wizard of OZ.
    4. Wow! You have great breasts! Better than most 20 year olds. Are you sure they’re real?” (yes, they are)
    5. Anything from Earth, Wind, & Fire, Santana, or Daryl Hall.
    6. Night Owl.
    7. Dogs. Cats are evil.
    8. rtcrita, well, “artsy” was taken already.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      another flyer
      to put airlines out of business!
      yup i so agree with dressing
      for comfort and confidence
      nothing is as comfortable
      as being oneself.

      “A heart is not judged by how much you love;
      but by how much you are loved by others.”

      this got me thinking
      are you loved first by others
      or you love much first
      before they got to love you?
      but i do know of a great One
      who loves us no matter what.

  6. Great answers! 🙂

    1. The power to grant wishes.
    2. I don’t think I have a style Icon.
    3. “”I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” -L.M. Montgomery
    4. When my kids tell me I’m a good mom.
    5.I listen mostly to the radio. I’m about to give away my age. I like the Eagles and Gerry Rafferty…70’s and 80’s groups are my favorites.
    6.I take spells, but recently have been up late and getting up early.
    7. Probably cats, but actually love parakeets and guinea pigs.
    8.The first word is my last name the “To Ponder” part means more to consider. 🙂

    • bendedspoon Says:

      oh my simple pleasures
      i am having one right now
      one after another
      smile smile smile
      for all the lovely thoughts.
      your blogname is what attracted
      me to you — the pun, remember?
      and so true there’s so much Moore to it
      there’s a wonderful woman behind!

    7. Dogs or cats: Dogs. They are more interactive, and more appreciative.
    8. Meaning behind the blog name: Which one? 🙂 I think they are all pretty intuitive.

  11. Lies Says:

    I didn’t realize dr. Seuss could be so profound – and I loved your answer on the superpower-question! I’m afraid I’m more egocentric -and less original, I would also love to be able to fly…
    As for the other questions…
    2. I got some friends who know how to dress AWESOME and I often ask their advice… but that’s as far as my interest in fashion goes.
    3. Everything’s ok in the end. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end. – Don’t know whose it is but it often keeps me going.
    4. My professor telling me I have earned my PhD fair and straight.
    5. I’m more listening to the radio these days… the next on my iTunes is Anna Begins by The Counting Crows, but since that is a random playlist it doesn’t say that much :).
    6. I always thought I was a night person… but I’m starting to love my mornings.
    7. I again agree with Linda… I’m missing my cat so much here :s.
    8. Well, I’m Lies… and I’m writing about what happens in my world. Since there’s many possible views though, I made it “a” world – not “the”.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Yes, Dr. Seuss
      he could be funny serious.
      hmmm Lies?
      the 8 answers, truth or lies? 🙂
      thanks for joining the fun!
