What Kind of Pumpkin Are You?

Are you the kind of pumpkin that prefers to just blend in with the crowd and not draw attention to yourself? That's okay. There is beauty in harmony and unity.

Are you the type of pumpkin that forges ahead with charisma and grace for others to follow your positive example? That's okay. There is beauty in the pioneering spirit of a leader.

Are you the type of pumpkin that draws the attention of others in a social setting and is the "life of the party"? That's okay. There is beauty in vivacity and good humor.

Are you a pumpkin that is surrounded all day by little ones and feel like you go for days without adult contact? That's okay. There is beauty in the sacrifices you make everyday to mold and shape the next generation.

Are you a pumpkin that is unique and different? That's okay. There is beauty in diversity, individuality, and uniqueness.

Regardless, of what kind of pumpkin you are there is beauty within you that is treasured by others. Look in the mirror today and say, "I am happy to be the pumpkin that I am!"

Happy Halloween!!!

You are very right, all different pumpkins are beautiful and unique. I think I would be a curly pumpkin.

....what did you say, Mommie? Oh. There are no curly pumpkins. Never mind.

ps: My little Halloween sack will hold eleventy-squillion Temptations. Give or take a couple.

Happy Halloween!

In my best imitation of Thom Filicia:
"Nice pictures, punkin." :-)

Finally (finally!) getting around to linking to your Emily-Post-post etiquette at It's all Good. Believe me, I've wondered the same thing. Sounds like an opportunity for someone: Our grandparents had Emily Post; our mothers had Miss Manners. Where is this post-Post generation's Manners?

Cute and creative "feel-good" post, Cindy! Happy Halloween!

Helen Read said...

Wonderful pumpkin photos! Could we be several different kinds of pumpkin, depending on the day and the place? I think I change! :)

I think I'm the kind of pumpkin that's not pictured here....a carved up, hollowed out shell because its the end of a long workday....but you fill me back up anytime with just smile and a kind word or two. -hubby

I'm a round pumpkin who likes to cook...and eat...which is why I am round. I'm a mommy pumpkin, but the kind who blends in with the crowd. You wouldn't pick me out of the patch...but if you did happen to come across me, you'd say, "hey, she's a pretty nice pumpkin!"

I LOVE this post! :) I m definitely the pumpkin that's the life of the party; always making other pumpkins laugh.

Gosh I have missed so much over here!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for honoring me with the "Rose Medallion" for excellence. I am so honored. :)

What a soul-cheering post, Cindy. Some of the photos made me laugh out loud.I'm not sure what sort of pumpkin I be--probably a misshapen one that sits off by itself in the patch, or pops up out of nowhere in the compost heap. Either way, you're right to be happy in our pumpkin skins...:-)

Yolanda Elizabet said...

Great post Cindy and great pics as well!

This unique and different pumpkin is wishing you a great weekend.

BTW I hope you had a lovely Halloween.

Anna said...

Great post, and I am definitely the kind of pumpkin that prefers to just blend in with the crowd and not draw attention to me. Wow I am so impressed with your creativity. Anna :)

Strawberry Lane said...

That is just ... priceless!!

Joanie said...

I love your pumpkin analogy. You know what kind of "I'm-your-favorite-auntie-pumpkin" I am. You are so clever!
