Wednesday Hodgepodge

From this Side of the Pond

1. January 24th is National Compliment Day. Is it easy or not so easy for you to accept a compliment? Share a recent compliment you've given or received.

It is hard for me to accept a compliment....I don't know why.  I recently received a compliment about how with all that has happened I have handled it all with grace.
I would rather give compliments....I gave a compliment the other day for someone just stepping up to the plate and doing her best.

My daughter coming through open heart surgery.

I have so much to be loving every day!

3. Would people describe you as a positive person? Do you see yourself that way? I read here  a list/description of eight things positive people do differently-

Positive people find something to look forward to every day, they celebrate the small stuff, they're kind, they stay busy, accept responsibility for their actions, forgive themselves, know when to move on, and resist comparisons

Which action on the list would you say you do regularly? Which action could you add to your life to give you a more positive outlook? If you're a positive person, what's something you do regularly that's not on the list?

I try to be positive but I feel like I fall short many days.

5. The best part of my day is..

When I know my family is all okay.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

Asking all to whisper a prayer for hub
He has CT scans on Tuesday at Duke to see if the chemo is working to shrink his cancerous tumors. 

Like to introduce my grandson...Blake Elliot Waugh born January 15, 2018  weighing 9lbs. 3oz. and 22 inches long!


  1. I will keep your hubby in my prayers. Duke is a great hospital.

  2. Prayers for your husband.

    Your new grandbaby is adorable!


  3. I will keep your husband in my prayers. Your new grandson is beautiful... such a blessing!

  4. I will be praying for Charlie and a good report. Daughters together is one of my favorite things too. It doesn't happen as often as I'd like these days, but we make the most of it when we manage to all be in the same geography. Enjoy your little guy!

  5. I believe family is very important to you. That is exactly how I feel as well. I was blessed with a large family and so happy that I was. Now, I feel it is my responsibility to take care of what God gav me
