Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 15


Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins"! You can find the fill-ins here or at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen. The final two statements are offered by myself. We have posted a link so we can all share the completed fill-ins.

We thank you for joining us each week. Your participation is very important. Sharing with you and getting to know you better through your answers is what it is all about. Please remember to visit everyone on the list. Thank you!

Here are my completed fill-ins for this week:

1. When I run out of coffee, I use instant coffee instead. I keep it around, but prefer brewed coffee. I really do need and like coffee in the morning.


2. My guru is Pope Francis, since technically, a guru is a spiritual leader. However, I do have many other mentors for various reasons and interests. Cesar Milan and I share many beliefs on dogs. My vets are consistent teachers of pet care. I always try to soak up knowledge from anyone who is educated in a field of interest or importance.


3. I am afraid of a world where anything goes. A world where there are no boundaries is one without laws, leading to a lack of concern and compassion for others. I fear this is beginning to happen, too.


4. I feel empowered when I accomplish something for a cause. I believe in being part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. I value justice and have a very strong moral compass. I pride myself on following it.



~Now, go in peace and love!~


Now, it's your turn. Please link up with us here. Or, you can answer in the comments

  1. All of these images are great, but I especially love the one from the Pope. I feel the very same way!

    Have a blessed weekend, Annie! :)

  5. These are all such wonderful answers! I love Pope Francis, and I also loved Pope John Paul II. Of course, Cesar Milan is awesome, too! And I am completely with you on #3. Such a scary thought. Thank you for hosting this! It's always so much fun!

  8. Great answers! I love Pope Francis too, in all my Catechism classes we were told animals don't have souls so they couldn't go to Heaven which I never believed.I am glad that he believes they will be in Heaven.
    I agree with your #3, that is very scary. And I make sure to never run out of coffee, I can't function without it. We drink it all day, I make decaf though after lunch. Have a nice weekend!XO

  9. You have such great answers! I had trouble with those questions this week... :) COFFEE!! I have to have my coffee in the morning, too. The hubby even more so. But I don't keep instant on hand - that's a great idea, even though I really don't like the taste of instant. I don't even use it in my homemade Kahlua (though the original recipe calls for it) because it's all about taste for me! :)

  10. Annie, I need coffee to jump start me first thing in the morning and sometimes in the early evening I like having a cup because it's relaxing. I'll drink instant coffee when push comes to shove, but I preferred brewed coffee. The batman kitty is so cute! I'm gonna have to steal this for Friday Sillies plug. Do you mind? Thanks for hosting the fun, dearie!

  11. Your fill-ins were fantabulous. Hope my fill-ins are even half as good.

    Kitty Kisses,

  12. I enjoyed your answers! I had to think about mine more this week. It's good to think though! LOL Have a great weekend!

  13. Your answers, as usual, resonate with me, Annie! Number three is deep and thoughtful, and I feel the same way about our world.

  14. I enjoy the photos. I am glad to see the pope weigh in on something that I have always pondered and hoped this was the case.

  15. Fun responses, Anni. Have a great weekend!

  16. Annie...is the Pope Francis image free to use? I ask because I always do a post in tribute to Saint Francis in October ♥♥♥

  17. Excellent answers! I am not a coffee drinker, but I am in total agreement with you on 2,3, and 4. Pope Francis is a shining light in a world that is indeed abandoning all values. We will reap the results of the "anything goes" mentality we are being bombarded with. Helping solve problems is something we all can do and should do, it's the right thing! Thank you for the great questions to contemplate this week! XOXO

  18. Great answers. Don't understand coffee in the morning. Pope Francis is a wise man.Sadly, have to agree with you on #3.Not surprised with #4 you have a generous heart.

  19. As always, Annie, you have exceptionally well thought out answers, which reflect my feelings as well, except #1. Tom is the coffee freak in our house. I don't even like the smell. I am the Diet Coke addict! Allowing Lisbeth and Astrid to do the fill-ins today made our completions less outstanding. Sending you much love and hugs, Janet

  20. Good Morning, Annie... a bit late but here!
    1. When I run out of patience I rely on my last worn out nerve instead... :)
    2. My guru is not just one person but a group of wonderful people!
    3. I am afraid of rocking the boat... !
    4. I feel empowered, stronger and more confident, much more as I get older... hence #3!

    Pope Francis is awesome!

  22. Yes unfortunately anything goes has been going on for a while now....

  23. Definitely agree my friend - a world of anything goes usually means the first things to go are kindness, compassion, and any sense of moral restraint. Everyone lives for themselves, when we should live for one another, and it is a sad, sad state I think we are entering. Hope remains though as long as there are people like you changing the world; even in small ways.

  24. I share your trepidation. Let us hope for a light in this present darkness.
