Wednesday Hodgepodge: Join in on the fun

Joyce is hosting the Hodgepodge and she really does pick hard questions!  Waiting for family arrive at the airport gave her too much time to think. Click on her button and join in the fun.

1. What is more important-doing what you love or loving what you do?
I thought and thought and finally asked Hubby to explain this to me and neither of us see a difference.  If I am doing what I love (care for my family) then I am loving what I do.  Now there may be days when caring for my family is harder, or busier, or even frustrating but through it all, I love caring for my family.

2. Do you like bleu cheese?
That would be a really big NO!!!

3. What is the most difficult emotion for you to handle?
Worry - I worry about so many things, most of which will never happen. I know that He, my God, will care for me and get me through what ever may happen - that no amount of worry will change anything but I find myself worrying anyhow.  An old habit -  I still need to work on. One that I am praying about/working on. 

4. Fresh flowers or a box of chocolate?
BOTH I'm worth them!

5. What's a song you love that has the word 'love' in its title? It doesn't have to be a 'love song'.
The first song that came into my mind is "I Love How You Love Me". I'm telling my age but I do love the way that Hubby loves me. He makes me feel so special all the time!

6. Are you the person you wanted to be when you grew up?
You know when I was little, I never thought I would be alive at my current age. As a teenager I was an angry  person and not happy at all. God changed all that and I began to feel loved and treasured and safe.  I did always want kids and grand kids and I have both so I am very happy with my life.

7. Any special Valentines Day plans?
 I do have plans for Hubby that will not be mention here, maybe next week.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
The Scottish Luckenbooth Added to the baby blanket - a superstition to keep good luck with the baby.

I'm a Grannie of 4! Our 4th grand child and 2nd Grand daughter was born on 2/7/11.   She is beautiful and as I write this I am overwhelmed with emotion. I wish I could describe the feeling of watching my child holding her child! She has become such a wonderful adult and fantastic Mom of her own family.  Listening to her talk to her children and explaining things to them is so fascinating.  The look in her eyes while she looks at her girls brings tears to my eyes.  It also makes me miss our grand sons! They live on the other end of the country and we really need to get toghther more often. My daughter In Law (DIL) is fantastic about getting photos and videos to me but I would love to read them a story or find a way to interact with the boys.  I know that Skype and iChat make that possible, the time difference seems to be the hardest issue.

Ok so go visit Joyce and join the fun or leave your answers here. Thank you Joyce.  


  1. #5 - Oh, I'd forgotten that song -- I LOVE it, too!

    #8 - CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Nothing is better than the birth of another grandchild. I'm sad for you that your grandsons are so far away. Praying that you'll be able to get some face-to-face time soon!

  2. I'm with you on #1 and #2.

    Congrats on the new granddaughter!

  3. Congratulations on your 4th grandchild!!

  4. You and I picked the same love song! How cool is that? It's an oldie, but still a goodie (like us!) LOL
    Congrats on the birth of another grandchild! Aren't they just "grand"?

  5. I think in #1 there is a difference if you are not doing what you would love to be doing. Then you have a choice-will I learn to love this thing and be content or will I be bitter because I have to do something I don't love?

  6. Great answer to #4, and I love your answer to #6. God is good, isn't He?

  7. Just checked into your blog and discovered your big announcement - HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY!

    CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your newest grandchild - what joyous news!
    Love to you and Gerry,

  8. I don't like blue cheese either. Worry is always with me. I try hard to give it all to God but it still takes over my life. Yes, you are worth both of them! Great song. Congratulations again on your new blessing.

  9. Congratulations on the new Grandchild.

    I love the blanket.

  10. I'm with you on the worry. I also try to remind myself that God has it under control but then my little voice (don't want to think of who that little voice belongs to) asks me "what if God is wanting to test you and the thing you are worrying about really will happen so you can be tested.....hate that little voice!!


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
