Hodgepodge Wednesday


1. What is more important-doing what you love or loving what you do? Loving what you do, because that's a choice to love no matter what the circumstances.

2. Do you like bleu cheese?  Only with Buffalo Wings.

3. What is the most difficult emotion for you to handle?  Anger. I stop thinking clearly and ride my emotions instead, which just fans the flames even more.  Very discouraging. Thankfully, God isn't finished with me yet ...

4. Fresh flowers or a box of chocolate? Not both????  Knowing how much I love chocolate, you might expect me to prefer that. But I really LOVE to receive fresh flowers as a gift, so that would be my choice if I could have only one. (But I think it's mean that I get to choose only one.  Just sayin' ...)

5. What's a song you love that has the word 'love' in its title? It doesn't have to be a 'love song'.You know, I can't think of a single one right now.  Eeek!

6. Are you the person you wanted to be when you grew up? I could go on for days about this one, Joyce! Let's see. When I was young and thinking about what I wanted to be when I grew up, I only considered the outward aspects -- career, car, husband, house, etc. In that sense, I'm not the person I wanted to be. I wanted to be a librarian and live in a nice apartment or house in a city. As it turns out, I'm happy that didn't come to pass because I love the life that God has blessed me with (with which God has blessed me, in case my grammarian cousin is reading this).  As for inwardly, I don't think that I ever gave a thought to what KIND of person I wanted to be when I grew up. I wasn't close to my parents and didn't really pay attention to the people they were.

7. Any special Valentines Day plans?  We will be in Salt Lake City for the weekend. I'm working. Tim and Number 7 will be playing. That's it.

8. Insert your own random thought here. Randomly speaking, one good game of racquetball is worth several hours of talk therapy.

Always great to read your answers Catherine. Most people answered #6 in regards to vocation but I suppose in my head I was thinking more along the lines of the person I am on the inside. Like you said in #3...God isn't finished with me either : )

:-o I almost answered #3 the same way you did. Thankfully, God's not finished with me yet. That reminds me of the song by Brandon Heath "Wait and See".

#4 made me laugh. We really shouldn't have to chose, should we?!

Enjoyed your answers. I am with you on the comment you left me. I too wish I had their budget to travel and research my heritage. By the way ancestry.com is having a giveaway for that very thing... just saying... lol
until next time... nel
