WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE


Click on the button and join us each Wednesday.


1. Have you ever been served breakfast in bed? Do you enjoy that? If someone were serving you breakfast in bed this coming weekend what would you hope to see on the tray?
I am pretty sure I have had breakfast in bed but it's been way to long ago to remember. Definitely enjoyed it. I would love some eggs over easy, buttered toast and some sausage.

2. What is one piece of advice you would give a new mother?
Nap when your baby naps! Also start a blog, it's the best baby book in the world and you can make it into a hard book each year.

3. When was the last time you wanted to scream? Explain.

I can only think of one time recently and I can't share it. Sorry

4. Can you hula hoop?
Yes I can. I also like stilts and a pogo stick

5. What is something people do in traffic that really bothers you?
Talking on their phone. Why can't they get how dangerous that is.

6. What do you do when people don't admit they're wrong?
Well I blew up years ago with my father-in-law when I knew he was wrong. His children and people who knew him would just let him always win. I just couldn't do it anymore. Well that turned into two years of him not talking to me. He was so stubborn. I would still try to prove myself being right to a family member. As far as other people go I just let it go. If I know in my heart I am right that is good enough for me. See most people who won't admit it will eventually know that they were wrong

7. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word 'fun'?
Scrabble each night in the cabin at Mammoth Lakes, CA each summer. Next would be Disneyland which we are going to on the 20th of this month

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Most of you know that I have another blog called For Your Tears where I mail out handkerchiefs to women who have lost a child. (if you ever have the need for one please feel free to contact me, it doesn't have to be an infant. Our children are always our babies no matter how old they are) I just wanted to share a recent post with you from a woman who received one from me. Her name is Christy and her blog is called Everlasting Families. This is why I do it. If I can bring comfort, even for a brief moment, then I have done what God asked me to do.

Would love to see you on the pogo stick! The handkerchiefs you send to people is a service of love that is so encouraging to them and even us. Thank you for your service.

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

The handkerchief service you do that I am so excited about. What a wonderful ministry. I think back to when my parent's lost my brother at the age of five. It is sad that there was no one like you around then. I am amazed by the fact that you can pogo stick...you must be a riot at parties.

Kathy ... better known as Nana said...

What a blessing you are to the families who lose a child. Bless you!

I love playing Scrabble ... I just can't find anyone who will play with me. ;-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

CRY said...

Wednesday are my favorites!

1. Have you ever been served breakfast in bed? Do you enjoy that? If someone were serving you breakfast in bed this coming weekend what would you hope to see on the tray?
I THINK MY DAUGHTER DID ONCE WHEN SHE WAS REAL LITTLE. I WOULD JUST WANT COFFEE

3. When was the last time you wanted to scream? Explain.
LIKED YOUR ANSWER(HEEEHEEEE) WHEN I SEE MY POOR DADDY I WANT TO SCREAM TO THE LORD TO TAKE HIM HOME TO HIM SO HE SUFFERS NO MORE.

4. Can you hula hoop?
ON THE WII GAME I CAN

5. What is something people do in traffic that really bothers you?
BESIDES DRIVING SLOW IN THE FAST LANE IT WOULD BE TEXTING, A MANS SPORT UTILITY LANDED ON MY SONS CAR HOOD FROM TEXTING AND NOT WATCHING THE LIGHT GOING AROUND 50 MILES PER HR AND FLIPPED AND THATS IT. IDIOT COULD HAVE KILLED MY SON. HE JUST BOUGHT THAT CAR AND ONLY HAD IT FOR A WEEK, BRAND NEW.


6. What do you do when people don't admit they're wrong?
DEPENDS ON WHO IT IS

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I MIGHT NEED ONE WHEN MY DADDY PASSES. YOU ARE SO AWESOME!

I have never been able to hula hoop, but my daughter, Abby, is a hula hoop whiz! She's even won a few contests! Yes...breakfast in bed sounds divine. Of course, mine would probably consist of a big bowl of Cheerios. I love what you're doing with those handkerchiefs! Such a sweet idea! I know they bring lots of comfort to grieving mothers. I lost two babies to miscarriages between the births of my two girls. It's a hurt I'll never forget.

ModernMom said...

You can hula and pogo?? You are a rockstar :)

Brandy@YDK said...

maybe it was a blessing that your father in law didn't talk to you for 2 years. lol.

Maribeth said...

I am in awe about the hula hool and pogo stick! WOW!

skoots1mom said...

haha, i know about blowups with a father-in-law...he did keep speaking to me though, i think he knew i was right even though he never admitted it.
love the handkerchief idea...we give out prayer shawls to those who have lost...
:)

nancygrayce said...

I would like to scream on a daily basis!

I love my hula hoop and as a child I loved my pogo stick!

Amy said...

Disneyland is SO much fun. I live in So.Cal and I really don't get tired of going. Have a GREAT trip!!

Guiding Light said...

Enjoyed your post! Love the handkerchiefs! Blessings!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Breakfast in bed .... hmm I seem to do that a lot for Rick but I don't think I've ever had that ;(

Oh yes the naping is key and the blog is a GREAT idea :)

I agree would love to see the pogo stick!

UGH the wrong thing yup you just have to suck it up and say your right I was in the wrong, but I know it's so hard for so many to do ... UGH

EmptyNester said...

Your compassion is inspiring!

Stilts and a pogo stick too? I'm very impressed!

Amy said...

I think I may have had breakfast in bed before..

For a new Mom I would say sleep and enjoy your time with your children they grow up way too fast..

A this weeks has been a wild one for me for sure so I think I have let out a few screams..

I can't hula hoop right now but I use to..

In traffic I do not like it when someone is right on my car's butt.


It drives me crazy when someone is wrong and won't say it. I hope they get it and stop doing it..

Fun a girls night or date night.. Or a great book...

I love your For your Tears blog.. It sure helped me and gave me an amazing new friend..

Have a great night..

blueviolet said...

omg, I like stilts and pogo sticks too!

Mary said...

I love your handkerchief ministry. When I first read #2 question, I had the exact same thought. Those were some tiring times, for sure!

Kathy said...

Oh, stilts and a pogo stick, too! Wow...I'm impressed :)

I think I may be one of the few who actually told their screaming story today...

Loved the handkerchief, and the ministry...so thoughtful of you.

Laura said...

Thank you for your posts- I always love reading them! I am so with you with the blog thing- I only wish I had started it when my oldest was born!! Oh well- I guess that's what 'wednesday walks' can be about!
I say scream on- whatever it is- sometimes makes you feel better.
And you are an amazing people doing amazing things for others- I need to get over to her blog soon- crazy times around these parts! Glad I got HERE!
Hugs-
L

Cathy said...

Such a sweet post and such a wonderful thing you are doing to encourage others. May God richly bless you.

auburnchick said...

What a wonderful ministry! I've never heard of it, but what a unique way to reach out to those who have lost children.

That corgi :) said...

I think you have such a great ministry in your "For Your Tears" one Debby; I know it touches people's hearts.

How fun to go to Disneyland in a few weeks! and the weather should be just about good and hopefully the crowds not over abundant!

good for you to do a pogo stick and stilts in addition to the hula hoop!

betty

Caroline said...

What great answers.
I love everything you do for the Babylost community.
You are such a blessing.

xinex said...

I love hula hoops. Would love to see you hooping....Christine

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

We love "speed scrabble"... how about you?

Just Be Real said...

Scream: IN my car. When people do stupid things that could get me killed.

Fun: Reflecting back to childhood with childhood friends.

Joyce said...

I had stilts and I love a pogo stick but I never mastered the hula hoop. We were on the road all day yesterday and it is astonishing how many people are on their phones!

Mara said...

I have felt like screaming all week now, but that will only make my head hurt more! So, not a good idea...

jayayceeblog said...

Debby, your For Your Tears hankies are the nicest thing I've seen in a long time. What a beautiful thing to do to help ease the grieving hearts of these families with angel babies. Thank you for doing this!

Nichol said...

I use to hula hoop for hours, now I can't do it, how sad. You are awesome for your other blog, it is wonderful what you do Debby!

Garden of Egan said...

I KNOW!!!!!
Does anyone ever just drive anymore????
I swear, what did the world do when the phone was still connected to the wall?

Libbie said...

Oooooo I am with you on that breakfast in bed, you picked a good meal :)

& I have to admit I do take a lot of naps when I get all the boys down.

But I sure wish I could hula hoop :)

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

I love that you do something so incredibly thoughtful as For Your Tears. AND you can hula hoop too???!! You are amazing!! xoxo

Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day!

Deborah Ann said...

Wow, you pogo and hula hoop! Far out! I love that kind of stuff.

Love your advice to new moms. It makes me sad, because my kids never read my blog or even my articles that were in the newspaper last year. Do any kids actually do that? No, don't tell me, I don't want to know. Heavy sigh...

Hey, thank you SO MUCH for voting for me!!!!!!!! You're the best! Please allow me to return the favor sometime...because I love to bless people's socks off!

Amy said...

No she did not eat the peaches and the cheese. I do not blame her either.. THanks for the kind words for sure.. Have a great night..

Technodoll said...

eggs over easy, buttered toast and some sausage - a woman after my own heart! YUM!

i'm also a scrabble addict... we'd have some fun times together ;-)

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Debby, I went over and read Christy's post. what a wonderful ministry you have! God bless you. I can no longer hoola hoop. I hadn't done it in years, and recently went to a party where people were doing it. I was shocked that I couldn't do it. I have NEVER been able to do the pogo stick! I'm soooo impressed. Hope you get breakfast in bed for Mother's Day. laurie

secret agent woman said...

It's funny - I think starting a blog when you have a new baby is a great idea, but I there are only a very few "mommy blogs" I like. Too unidimensional.

Kristin - The Goat said...

That's so lovely, Debby. Christy wrote such a beautiful post. I'm sure it just made your heart soar. You have such a good heart.

Unknown Mami said...

Guess what? My kids are napping and I'm not. Terrible. Most of the time I do nap when they do simply because I'm too tired not too.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!
