Pondering with a Purpose - Green

Welcome to Pondering with a Purpose -
 This is my weekly hop where I post a prompt and you get to write to it on your - come back here and add it to my linky and then we all get to go read what you wrote!
I started Pondering with a Purpose because -- simply put -- I am a writer - - that is what I do (I just can't help myself)! And although I love following all the hops, I wanted to see if I could bring out some creativity in not only myself, but some of my blogger friends as well.

The rules are really easy:

1. Grab the Pondering with a Purpose Badge (in my sidebar)
2. Look at the week's prompt
3. Post something on your blog that relates to the prompt - it can be a story, a poem, a picture -- anything you want it to be.
4. Come back here and add the URL from your post to the linky list below.
5. Go check out the other bloggers who have added their links to the list.
6. AND most of all.... Have fun!

Today's prompt is: Green

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner I had the word 'green' pop into my head and then I realized this is also a word with multiple meanings....

Was the first thing you thought about when you read the word the color green? Well if so, which shade would that be...after all I have a lawn with at least five different shades of green in it...

But then I starting thinking about going green.... seriously? How did recycling and taking care of our environment turn into a fad?

Then of course there is that saying "Green with Envy" or the "Green Eyed Monster" --- but what I want to know is if you've ever seen someone you love actually turn green? You know...right before they are about to lose all the contents of their stomach? Or when they are on a boat and are sea sick?? I have.... and let me tell you green is NOT a good thing to be!

Or how about our constant striving for more green in our pockets?  I am sure you all realize that other countries do not have currency that is green.... in fact the US Dollar isn't even green anymore.......

So how about you? What do you think about when you say green?
I'd love for you to link up your post.... or read your comment...or better yet... both!

Happy Pondering.


  1. Great pondering topic. I enjoy taking part. Great thinking required.

    1. Thanks Judy...and I enjoy your pondering with me

  2. my childhood - green was my favorite color and I was obsessed with it. I would wait longer at the amusement park just to ride on green rides - I was always a strange one...

  3. Green is my favorite color too but my post went in a different direction.

  4. we are on the same wavelength these days!
    I realized after I published my post...I forgot to include a picture of the shamrock plant I have on my table for St. Patrick's day! Its blooming very pretty right now.

    1. definitely riding those waves together sis!

  5. To me, green is the color of Spring and the color of life! It is also the color I most miss in my present surroundings, West Texas for the most part is brown and dry. I decided to go with a story this week, something to cheer our hearts a bit, I believe in miracles! This is a wonderful prompt, I hadn't even considered green with envy, I might have to do a story on that one too! :-)

    1. Aha, I thought I'd written about jealousy before, I found the post and just had to share it here. Hope you don't mind me taking up two slots this week! :-)

    2. I love both our your posts Josie....thanks for pondering with me!!!

  6. This was a really fun prompt! No emotional baggage to dredge up. :)

    1. I am trying to make some of them lighter than others :)


Comments are a gift... thank you!
