Wednesday Hodgepodge

Another Wednesday means another Hodgepodge.  I've missed the last couple but am up to the task today.  Thanks Joyce for always "showing up" for us.

1. What is something you currently find 'taxing'? 

Oh, my goodness!  I have been having "tear duct issues" in my right eye for about 3 months.  My awesome Ophthalmologist referred me to another eye specialist in Shreveport (for non locals that about 100 miles from us) and I saw him yesterday.  Can I just say that I am not a whimp with much of anything but when you are poking and prodding in my tear duct, irrigating it and other stuff, it about causes me to have a "hissy fit."  Now, there is no pain because my eye is numb but just the thought and I can feel the poking and prodding even though it is not painful.  Yes, I find it very taxing!  And, I have to have another procedure done next month.  Hopefully that will fix the issue.

2. I've seen this question asked in various forms on several social media 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? 

Well, what a strange list but if I had to choose it would be coffee, jewelry and makeup. No explanation needed for those that know me. ~chuckle~  I don't like to do without any of these on any given day. ~big smile~

3. Tell us something you know or have learned about forgiveness? 

I've learned that there are times that we have to forgive when not asked for forgiveness. It's so much easier when someone apologizes and asks for forgiveness but when they do not, we need to forgive and move on.  It's better for all concerned and leave the rest up to the Lord.

4. What's something you'd recommend that is often overlooked and under appreciated? 

God's Word!!!  For many, it's not even a conscious act, but we/they do not appreciate the extreme value of His Word and it is often overlooked for things of far LESS importance.  We must make a concerted effort to be in His Word and to appreciate the value of it in our lives. It's a daily struggle for me, so I'm speaking to myself first of all.

5. Give us a favorite word that starts with letter K and tell us why this is the one you chose. 

KINDNESS !!!!  Our world needs a HUGE dose. It cost nothing and it could and would change so much in our world if everyone would just practice it.  

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

This was one of  my Mom's favorite Bible verses............

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Kindness is a very good choice and it would definitely make the world a better place. I enjoyed your answers today and I hope your tear duct issues will be gone soon.

  2. I hope your eye issues are resolved quickly and painlessly. I can imagine that would be quite uncomfortable. Love the rest of your answers! Have a great rest of the week :)

  3. I'm the same way about anything with my eyes (or teeth!) I know there will be cataract surgery in my future and I shudder just thinking about it. People say it's no big deal but still...shudder. I hope you get this issue resolved. Enjoy your day!

  4. Hope your eye heals. That's a long time to endure tear duct issues. Was thinking about your Dad recently, hope he is still doing well.

  5. Excellent responses for #4, #5, & #6. I want to change mine, now. Another fun Hodgepodge from our friend, Joyce! xo

  6. Great answers today Lea, except for the eye issue. Dick had a problem with that but our Dr in Shreveport was able to resolve it without all the treatments you are having to do. A friend here has been undergoing your treatments for weeks, so hoping you get relief soon.

  7. I agree with your answers on what to keep! So sorry about your eye issues. Praying relief comes your way soon

  8. Sorry about your eye issues. Hope you have good relief soon. We have similar answers for question #4. Hope the rest of your week is grand!

  9. Oh I do hope that your eye issue heals quickly. Dealing with eye issues can truly be frustrating. Hugs and blessings to you. Cindy

  10. Oh Lea... I hope that eye problem clears up soon! I'm glad that you found a good doc, even though he is quite a distance away. Have a good weekend.

  11. Hi Lea, prayers for healing of your tear ducts and that the next procedure goes well! I enjoyed your answers especially of the importance of reading God's Word. Your mother's verses are two of my favorite and are listed among our memorized verses. I have really missed blogging and realized today that I haven't blogged in months!
    Kindness is so lacking today, we all need a good dose.
    Have a great day, I have missed visiting with you.

  12. This is a good list, I particularly like your thoughts on forgiveness. This is something I struggled with until about 10 years ago. I think it takes practice but it is sure worth it. I hope your next appointment cures the tear duct issue. Take care, Anne

  13. Beautiful post, Lea. If people would only get in to God's Word, they would find treasures to help with every facet of life.

    As for what I would need to keep: coffee, books, and jewelry (select pieces).

    I am praying now that the tear duct problem clears up completely. That sounds like quite a bother. I'm sorry you've had to go thru this.
