I am slowly recovering from my psychotic episode over the weekend. Still very tired but have been able to go to classes as normal. A big, huge thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
Anyway - today's post includes my answers to the Album of Opinions questions - hope you enjoy reading them.

A brief definition of love.
There are different types of love. The best of them is when you consider the other person's needs before your own.

Secluded beaches with pure white sand.
Your idea of happiness
To be completely rid of mental illness.
Your favourite motto or proverb
A good name is better than riches (from Proverbs in the Bible)
The wrongs you would redress.
Third world debt should be abolished so developing countries can actually develop.

The true place of woman in society
This is a tricky one. Some women prefer to be at home and others prefer to work. I think the 'place' should be what is considered to be the best outcome for the husband, wife and children. Single women can really do what they want.

To be a published author and support myself totally by writing.
The Christian name you like best
Jessica and Joshua
Your ideas on the subject of marriage.
Marriage can be wonderful if both partners make an effort to love the other and put the other's needs above their own needs. Also we need to choose our partners well and not just on our hormones.

Honesty, openness, kindness, gentleness, generosity and humour.
Your favourite flowers, birds and beasts
Carnations, white cockatoo, cat.
Hey - maybe now it's your go! God Bless
