When Your Thrill Is Gone

Hello Friends, Followers and  Viewers,
You asked for it.  You wished for it. Now it is here.  TGIF...thank God it's Friday!  This morning after reading the news, I called out to my DH who was still in the bed to tell him "The Thrill Is Gone"! He immediately asked me if I was talking about B.B. King.  Couldn't fool him.  He may have been informed earlier than I had by watching the early, early news on the TV.  We (collectively all of us) get bored often when the passion of something new has worn off.  Yes, the thrill is gone, now what?  We have created these bucket lists of things to do before we die and as soon as we get one thing done, the thrill is gone.  Have you had a chance to zip ride, to ride on the steepest roller coaster, to skydive, to run with the bulls, to swim with great white sharks, to ice swim, to go white water rafting or to kayak over a waterfall?  As soon as you do....the thrill is gone.  Your first time cannot be lived all over again.  Get a new car and ride around for a month free with no payment...the thrill is gone when you make that first monthly payment.  In card making, if you don't change up with a different sketch, design, bling, color, ink, stamp, etc....the thrill is gone....the thrill is gone away.
Here is my share for today:
