I'm on a roll with the Wednesday Hodgepodge: Give it up for 4 weeks in a row! Joyce keeps cranking them out, week after week, with very few breaks.
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's not very easy for me to take a compliment. Recently, my name was drawn from other employees who completed online sessions from the Special Ed Dept. Everyone kept congratulating me on a job well done when I hadn't done anything at all...I just finished those little sessions so I could have a day off during the school year.
2. Ten little things you are loving right now.
I'm only going to keep it to 5...don't want to bore you just yet!
|Reliving my Ireland vacation|
|My breadmaker. Makes fantastic pizza dough!|
|These 2 getting along...for the moment|
|My slow cooker. Have any good recipes to share?|
|CH & I love these! A better alternative to regular chips. They have "veggie" in the name, so they must be healthier, right?|
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?
Here's the thing: I try to be a positive person, and I would hope that people would describe me that way. The only thing on the list that I have to really work on is resisting comparisons. I do my best to steer clear of negative people, because they can certainly bring you down!
4. Homemade chicken soup, beef stew, or a bowl of chili...what's your pleasure on a cold winter's day?
Chicken Noodle Soup with a peanut butter & jelly sandwich and chips is the best lunch ever, but especially on a cold winter's day!
5. The best part of my day is....
My prayer time. After I've taken the shower and fed the dogs, it's "me & Jesus" time. It helps me get the day off to a good start and helps me focus on the important things.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Just in case you didn't notice, I've finally started writing about my trip to Ireland. I'm posting on Mondays & Thursdays for a total of 8 posts. As I'm looking up information about things my SIL & I saw, I realize just how little time we had and how much we missed. I definitely need to go back and see some more things!
