If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Time for the Hodgepodge and I thought I'd play along this week.

1. Let's all think happy thoughts...share one of yours here.
I may get to go to the ocean in March.  I'm looking forward to that possibility.

2. There's a Chinese proverb that says, "If you want happiness for an hour take a nap, if you want happiness for a day-go fishing...." What say you? If you want happiness for a day _____________.
Knowing I can spend the day with my hubbby doing whatever we want makes me happy especially if it's at the beach.

3. Where do you go to decompress from the world around you?
My home or if I'm really lucky, the beach.

4. What song never fails to make you happy?
Any beach song by the Beach Boys

5. Wednesday is National Fast Food Day. Should that be a thing? Apparently it is, so tell us what's the last 'fast food' you consumed? If you were putting together your own version of a 'happy meal' what would you include?
Why shouldn't it be a thing?  Everything else has a day.  lol  The last fast food I had was at breakfast and it was a McDonald's Breakfast Burrito.  My Happy Meal would be a chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a, Burger King fries, and a diet Coke.
6. In a few sentences tell us why you blog.
 Because I enjoy the people I've met through blogging and because I love getting to know them better.  Plus I love having a record of our life.
7. List seven things you're feeling especially grateful for today.
My Husband
My Church
My Doctors and other caregivers over the past year.
My God
Our home
Our girls
My grandson
These are not necessarily in order. 
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Is anyone else watching Survivor this year?  I so enjoy this show.



  1. Cathy, it's so good to see you joining the Hodgepodge again! I still think of, and pray for, you every day, and hope you are doing well.
    I'm with you on the beach thing. There's no place I'd rather be, other than home. I hope you get to make that beach trip in March :)
    Yes, we're watching Survivor. It's been interesting, so far! I was happy to see "Figgy" get sent packing, and will be glad to see Taylor go home, as well. Such self-centered people!!!
    Take care,
    Kathy (Reflections)

  2. Thrilled to see you posting, Cathy! I've been out of the loop for awhile myself. Hope you're continuing to do well. No, I'm not a big fan of "Survivor". I stopped watching it about 4 seasons or so ago. My newest fav. show is "This Is Us".

  3. LOVE the beach too. I never fails to lift my spirits. And beach boy songs? Well how could anyone not get that? lol Love them too. I have never watched Survivor believe it or not, lol. I am hooked on Netflix and rapid fire watching series. We are just finishing up Call of the Midwife. We have both loved it...(though me more then hubby, lol) Have a good day!

  4. Hi Cathy,
    I agree, the ocean can calm my nerves and recharge me to face another day, it is one of my happy places for sure. We watch survivor and have been faithful fans for many years. Looking forward to seeing how the merge will play out, I like Zack, if he plays his cards right, I think he will go far in this season. I have an Etsy shop too, I couldn't find your Etsy link in the sidebar, is it still active? Have a great week.

  5. I do hope it works out for you to make that beach trip! We have a trip somewhere warm and pretty coming up in January, sort of work related for hubs but I cannot wait : ) Hope you're doing well and I know you're enjoying your grandson.

  6. Love The Beach Boys too. I need to get to the ocean soon. It's only about 20 minutes away but I usually go 3 minutes away to our local beach which is on The Long Island Sound. They both have a way of calming me :) Hope you are feeling well.

  7. Someone is in a beachy mood today! I love the beach, too. So much so that I have a tattoo on my ankle to have a bit of it with me all the time. I hope you get to go in March.

  8. Oh, yes, the Beach Boys are great! I haven't been to the beach in a very long time but I do like the beach. Perhaps I need to plan a trip! Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. So, you love the beach? LOL I hope you get to go in March! You make me remember to stop taking my short distance from the beach for granted. I don't watch much television that isn't on Netflix or Hulu. I have never been one to watch reality tv programs but I know a lot of folks who LOVE it! :) Have a wonderful day!

  10. I will pray that a beach trip is in your near future! Nothing makes you feel better than some sun and ocean breezes blowing. Not a lover of fast food, but do like Chic-Fila!
    Very happy to see a post from you! Continued prayers!

  11. I think you love the beach as much as I do! I hope you get to go soon. I've never missed an episode of Survivor. I love that show.

  12. I love the beach too. I wish it was warm enough to go. Have a great day.

  13. Sorry I'm a whole week late getting here. I hope your get to the beach in March. I like your list of things you are grateful for.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
