Wednesday Hodgepodge

Thank you Joyce!! 1. What is something you currently find 'taxing'? I am dealing with a toxic situation. It is taking its toll on me but I am so thankful for friends that let me talk about this and cry on their shoulders. 2. I've seen this question asked in various forms on several social media sites...you can only keep three- coffee, jewelry, tacos, wine, books, dogs, chocolate, Netflix, make-up, leggings, cheese, cats Which three do you keep and how easy or hard was it for you to decide? Books because I love to read. I do own a Kindle but there is something about holding a book and I underline and make notes, Wine is used to calm me down and relax me, Coffee for my brain to function in the mornings and to get meenergized. 3. Tell us something you know or have learned about forgiveness? Forgiveness is hard (at least for me} especially when the offense is fresh. My prayers have been asking God to soften my heart so I can forgive them and I bless the persons who have committed the offense. Just because I forgive, doesn't mean I justify their behavior. Forgiveness releasesall bitterness I have toward them and gives me peace. Jesus was falsely accused of a crime and crucified. As he hung on the cross he said, "Father, forgive them for they don't know what they're doing. (Luke 23:34) God forgave ME! 4. What's something you'd recommend that is often overlooked and under appreciated? Bread ties...I bet you didn't think of that!!! Bread ties have many uses: put it on the end of tape (especially duct tape) and ta da!! you never have to try and get it started again, to keep cords separated, use as a book marker, to keep cords secure around appliances, and I have even used them for wine glass charmers. 5. Give us a favorite word that starts with letter K and tell us why this is the one you chose. K for Kindness.We all have had bad days, but when someone displays kindess my day is turned around. Kindness is a ripple effect...have you ever gone through a drive-thru and someone pays for your order? I have, and then I pay for the order behind me. This world would be a little better if we all showed kindness. So be the I in kindness. 6. Insert your own random thought here. A student asked me yesterday how many weeks we had left in this school year. When I looked at the calendar,I was amazed...only 5 weeks left after this week!! Gosh! it has been a trying year,but we are making it! Have a great rest of the week.

  1. I guess our answers to #1 and the question on forgiveness go together. I bet the students are glad to only have five weeks of school left, the teachers too! Have a great rest of the week :)

  4. Tammy,

    We bought picked 'kindness'. :) Get bread ties ideas. I never thought of how useful they can be. I just throw them away. Twist ties I use more frequently. :) Here's today's Hodgepodge responses! ;)

  5. I'm sorry for the difficult situation and hope peace can be found. I'm also glad you have support and a place to vent. I use bread ties for many things but hadn't thought of the tape. Great idea! Have a nice day!
