Twenty-Word Hodgepodge on the 20th

Restraining myself to just twenty words for my answers today is  a necessary discipline, for time's sake and your sake. 

1. What lesson has failure taught you?

Humility. (I'm not perfect.)
Compassion. (Other people struggle as well.)
Correction. (What not to do.)
Discernment. (This ain't my thang!)

2. What decision are you glad you made?

To follow Christ, although it was His initiative and grace that wooed me. 
The joy of knowing Him is  indescribable!

3. I've been a little bit surprised to see fully lit and decorated Christmas trees popping up for the past several weeks in friend's Instagram feeds. So tell the truth-is your tree up and decorated, and if so when did that happen? If not, when will you be decking the halls?  

No, we don't decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving!  One holiday at a time, please. Decking halls here starting Dec. 2.

4. Solitaire-Poker-Rummy-Hearts-Go Fish-Old Maid...which game of cards would you most like to join? 

Not Solitaire; I'm too social. Rummy? I always lose . Old Maid? Forgot the rules.  Go Fish?  Yes? I could win!

5. This question comes to you courtesy of a Facebook friend, who once upon a time had a blog...When you're feeling stressed do you snack a lot or are you more the 'can't eat' type? 

Unfortunately, I am a mood eater. I eat when stressed, eat when happy, when bored, when excited, when sad. Ugh.

6.  Have you ever reviewed a product or service on line? Was your review favorable or less than favorable? 

No. But I keep meaning to write a good review for my sewing machine (Janome DC 1050) for this retailer

7. What was the best conversation you had yesterday? 

During ladies' Bible study, we encouraged one grandmother who hasn't seen her four-month-old grandson.  DIL refuses her requests. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

Today is the day I will --"come hell or high water"-- clean out my bedroom closet. I need cheerleaders, hear me?

Go Zo! You can do it : ) How sad to think a grandma won't get to see her grand. That's a hard one. I hope the dil's heart will soften in that area.

20 words or less: I enjoy your blog and sense of humor! Now get to that closet! ( :

Here's your cheer - you must imagine me (though we've never physically met) with my hair in ponytails, waving wild pompoms madly in the air while jumping up and down - "LET'S GO! LET'S GO! L-E-T-S, G-O!" There! You excited now? GO GIRL! You can DO it! :-)

Oh, you will feel so good when you finish that closet clean out. I hope you have already done so! I'm definitely cheering you on!

How sad, a Grandmother being denied seeing her Grandchild. Oh, my!

Of course, as always, enjoyed your humor!!
