Hodge Podge Wednesday

Wednesday Hodge Podge time link up with Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond.

1. What is one thing on your bucket list? If you don't have a bucket list let's pretend you do.
I don't have a bucket list, but if I did.  Travel, I would love to travel and see God's beauty in other parts of the world.
2. What makes a good dad?
One that loves their children unconditionally, and is always there for them no matter the distance.   One that will discipline them and is consistent in their discipline. Children learn by example, and I hate the phrase do as I say not as I do.   Because children are watching us to be their role models.  They need our love and time more than material things. 
I had a wonderful Dad, he never raised his voice to get our attention but we knew when he meant business.  We knew he loved us and provided what we needed.  With six of us there wasn't alot of room for wants, but we turned out just fine.
3. Are you afraid of insects? Which ones? 
Not really. 

4. We're barbecuing...what's on the grill at your house?
  It doesn't matter to me because if the grill is going it means I'm not cooking.

5. Do you believe that playing is more important than winning?  Yes I do.  Absolutely.

6. Do you tan? Use self tanners? Visit tanning salons? See your dermatologist at least once a year?
If we go to the beach or  if I'm out in the sun I usually burn a little the first time then tan.  I have never used self tanners or been to a tanning salon.  As I get older a good tan isn't as important to me as it was when I was younger.
7. Five years ago I would never imagine that today I would_______________.
Be a Nana.  Much less have two grandchildren in a two year span.  And now a step-grandson.  But I love it.  There's nothing like it.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm tired of being tired.  I go back to the Doctor tomorrow since at this time I can't afford surgery.  But I hope there is something that can be done.  Because this is getting really old and depressing.  On a happier note will be posting pictures of Chris and Shanea's wedding soon.  It was a beautiful wedding.


  1. One of the reasons we enjoy traveling so much is seeing all the beauty of God's creation. ;-)

    And I'm with you ... when the grill is going, I don't really care all that much what's on it ... it means that I'm not having to cook! ;-)

  2. I'm sorry for your #8. I know how that feels.

  3. Hi!
    I new twin grandbabies too, Bella and Luke. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  4. I hope you feel better soon!
    Your definition on a good dad is right on. I agree.

  5. I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. I know it does drag on the soul the longer it goes on. Praying that you receive healing and peace.

  6. Love your grilling answer. Hope you feel lots better soon.

  7. #4 made me laugh out loud! funny that you will not be cooking! I'm sorry that you are so tired.I hope you find answers and support and the right mix of meds for you.

  8. Hope you feel better soon! Enjoyed all of your answers. I love traveling too, but there is so much to see in the USA. Love your thoughts on grilling!
    until next time... nel

  9. There is a lot of travel on my bucket list. Sorry you're not feeling well...hope you find relief soon.

  10. I love (and agree with) your definition of a good dad. I agree about grandchildren, they're the best!
    I'm sorry you're experiencing heath difficulties. I know the feeling...and I know all about insurance difficulties, too. May we both get relief soon! PS I highly recommend the hysterectomy whenever you can manage it. It did wonders for me! I lost 19 lbs, and had more energy than I'd had in 20 years.

  11. Thena, I so relate to your love of your grandchildren. My two grandsons, Payton (4) and Josiah (19 mos) live far away from me, and it's SO hard! They are my heart!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog. You really have a lovely blog here!

  12. We can pray for each other to feel better! I have a constant struggle with health issues with no real answers too!

    Actually my answers would have been much the same as yours except that I do go to a tanning studio (blush) and I have 7 grandkids!


I love reading your comments, and especially responding back to them. So please leave your email address instead of a no-reply format.
Have a blessed day!!
