A May Hodgepodge

1. What's something you 'may' do this month?
Since things are getting "somewhat" back to normal I'm wanting to get back in the habit of having people into our home.  I'm thinking of having some ladies over for coffee and cookies and I just "may" do that this month.  I have a freezer absolutely full of cookies and other baked items, so that part is ready. 

2. Last time you literally or figuratively shouted mayday!

Well, I didn't say mayday, but I hollered very loudly and Hubby did come running.  While putting up dishes a couple of years ago I dropped a white Corelle Ware dinner plate and can I just tell you that it did not break, it exploded!  It was much like the picture above except that this picture shows it after it was swept into a pile.  We picked up pieces of that plate for the next week.  It was unbelievable!  So, between my hollering and Hubby hearing the "explosion" he wasn't sure what he was going to find when he entered the kitchen. 

3. Let the chips fall where they may, come what maymaybe, Cape Maymayflies, devil may care, you may now kiss the bride,  much to our dismaymayhem, mayonnaise...choose a 'may' word or phrase from the list and tell us how it relates to your life in some way right now. 

I often think to myself, "let the chips fall where they may" concerning situations. There are usually always situations that I need to do that and sometimes I really want to help those chips fall where I "think" they should go.  Generally not a good idea.

4. If someone were serving you breakfast in bed this weekend, what would you like to see on the menu?

I love, love breakfast but the funny thing is I rarely eat it unless we go out or we are traveling.  Give me some scrambled eggs, crispy fried bacon and a biscuit with grape jelly and I'm a happy gal.  Oh, and of course, a piping hot cup of coffee!

5. Tell me one true thing you believe about motherhood. 

My sweet Momma told me this shortly after I had our firstborn.  It didn't mean all that much to me until years later.  No matter their age you are still their Mom.  And, sometimes it's hard to remember not to give them "Motherly advice" even when they are wayyyy past grown. ~smile~ 

6. Insert your own random thought here.

With Mother's Day this Sunday I've thought of my Mom more than usual these past days. She passed away 12 1/2 years ago and at times it only seems like a few days ago.  The suddenness of her death took me down a very dark path for a good while. But in time I realized how good the Lord was to take her on and not leave her here in the condition the massive stroke left her in.  She was such a Godly woman with such a quiet and gentle spirt.  I am blessed to still be learning from the example she set.

And, a Happy Mother's Day to each of you!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I had a Corelle plate explode on me years ago too. Pretty scary stuff since they weren't supposed to break at all! My mom passed away almost six years ago, also very suddenly... you never get over missing your mom when she is gone.

  2. I'm surprised Corelle shatters. That is unexpected. I don't think we're ever to old to need our mommas. Happy Mother's Day to you!

  3. Whoa...thought that stuff was indestructible. That must have been a shock. It's sad to lose our moms on earth. Sorry for the suddenness of your mom's passing. Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

  4. I didn't know a Corelle plate would explode like that! I would have screamed, too! I agree -- once a mom, always a mom!

  5. I love what you wrote about your dear mother. We are so blessed when we can continue to learn from their example. Corelle isn't supposed to break... they should tell us it won't break, but it will explode! Glad you weren't hurt! xo

  6. Yummmmmm bacon!!
    That is a sweet tribute to your mother, what a pretty lady.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  7. I've missed reading your blog but life has gotten in the way recently. I have thought a lot about motherhood...and It was graduate Sunday at church and even though I have no one graduating this year, I cried all the way through it. It's so hard on a mama's heart when her babies grow up. After church my grandson called me and said, "Cheri, just will be me up there next year." OK, God...I'm really not ready...please let this year go by slowly. Always love reading your blog and hope I will be back in the swing soon. I NEED A SCHEDULE...and I need to stick to it!!

  8. I’m recommending Dr Uromi to everyone who have herpes simplex virus to get the cure from him. I was diagnose of genital herpes in 2018 and i have been searching and asking questions to see if i could get something to cure the disease because i did not believe what the doctors say that no cure is found yet. I came across a comment on Youtube and the person testify how she was cured from herpes and hpv after using Dr Uromi herbal medicine. I quickly contact Dr Uromi and explain my problem to him and he prepare the herbs and send it to me through UPS and gave me instructions on how to use it and tell me to go for checkup after usage which i did after two weeks of taken the herbal medicine and my result was NEGATIVE. I waited another month and retested the result was still NEGATIVE and my doctor told me that am completely free from herpes. Am so happy and grateful to Dr Uromi for what he has done for me and i will continue to share this for people out there to know that there is cure for herpes. You can contact Dr Uromi on email and WhatsApp to get the cure from him.  and WhatsApp +2349021374574.
