Show + Tell Monday {Stuck on an Island}

Pin It Now!

This week's questions are very interesting! Let's get started. 

Tell us, if you could only take 5 people with you to a deserted island, who would it be, and why?
{These are in no particular order.}
The Mr. {duh} It's pretty obvious that I would need him to survive plus I wouldn't want to live without that man!
The Fur Baby. So what? He's not a person, but he is someone I would need to take with me. The reasons are obvious.
My Sister. We would both die of a broken heart if we were separated. So there. That's my reason.
My Momma. Since I talk to this woman every single day it would be pretty hard not to have her with me.
My Dad. He knows how to fish well and he can hunt with the Mr. so we have food. See below.

 {Exhibit A: King Crab}

{Exhibit B: 64 lb. Halibut, caught by my Dad in Alaska [where he lives]}

Show us which island you'd like to be deserted at. 
This island would suffice. It's breathtaking, private, and there's some shelter. The water. Are you kidding me? It's crystal clear. If I could bring Target along with my 5 people, I'd be all set. 
Tell us, if you could only bring 3 items with you, what would those items be. And why? 
Hands down, first and foremost I would bring my Bible. It's my rock. I need it for survival. 
My pillow. It feels like home and it's pretty necessary for a good night's sleep.  
A camera to capture all our memories and adventures. 
Show us 3 pictures that you would take with you.

Tell us what you envision life would be like on that island. Do you think you would go into survival mode? Would you be like those Survivor people and eat bugs? What qualities do you possess that would help you survive. Do share.
Life stranded on an island would be difficult. That's obvious. I wouldn't willing go. But, if for some reason I was stranded with this exact scenario? It might be okay. I think in this situation {and any situation in life} it's how you react that matters. I hope my reaction would be to make the best of the situation. To learn to survive with what I have. To make the most of each day because it's still a gift from God. To strive to be grateful, even when it feels hard. I hope that would be my reaction in this type of situation as well as life in general.

For the record, I wouldn't eat bugs.
