Daily Prompt: Back to the Future Letter to Grandchildren


Daily Prompt: Back to the Future

by michelle w. on March 1, 2013

 A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future. To whom would you send something, and what would you write?

Thanks for the great idea, William

I would write a letter to my hubby’s grandchildren and to my own explaining why we do not see them as much as we would like.  Explaining that the economy in our time made it difficult to just hop in a car and travel like when I had been young.  In my note I would explain that health issues as you grow older prevent you from doing what you once did at a younger age.

I would tell them that I had said a prayer for their future that their lives would be full of happiness and prosperity.  That they might find their dreams to come true and to always look to the future for answers that are unknown in their time.  If only our note in a bottle could be read in their future… How proud we are of them and that we always loved them.

Daily Prompt: The Clock Was Ticking


Daily Prompt: The Clock

by michelle w. on February 16, 2013

Write about anything you’d like. Somewhere in your post, include the sentence, “I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock.”

It was six years ago now,yet it seems like just yesterday.  The phone call so early in the morning from my oldest daughter.  She said that she just wanted to know how things were going, but I could hear it in her frail voice.  Something was not right.  She was close to delivery date and was afraid.  I could tell.  I asked if she wanted me to come and she had said yes to my surprise.  This was my independent child who always wanted to do life on her own.  Then I knew, despite the weather, I had to go.

Of all the days, in snow to my waist, for my truck not to start.  I felt devastated.  I was sitting in the truck crying and praying.  My landlord came out and saw me to ask what was wrong.  I told him and he disappeared back into his side of the house as I went in to get warm.

He returned shortly to tell me that he had called his brother and asked if they would take me to Rochester, a 3 1/2 hour drive in good weather.  He said that he had explained the situation and that I should pack.  I hurried to pack a bag and sit to wait for what seemed to be an eternity.

“I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock.”

We had no time to spare.  If we were caught in the storm we would not make it.  If we did make it in time, would they make it back to the snow country or be caught some where in between and stranded.  It was a chance that they were willing to take for me and something that I have never forgotten.  An act of kindness that was above and beyond comprehension.

The journey took us a little over 4 hours.  When we arrived, they quickly said goodbye.  They had refused to take gas money.

I had slipped a twenty on the dashboard near the radio with a note that read “I can not repay your kindness, please take this for the gasoline and may God find a way to guide you home safely for the angels are with you to take you on your journey.  Forever Thank You”

As I settled into the house and checked on my daughter, I found her in her bed crying.  As she looked up, the tears became bigger.  “I prayed that you would come” is all that she said as we hugged tightly.  It had started to snow outside quite hard and we both began to pray for my friends safe return.

My son in law had gone to the hospital that morning to do his rounds and had not returned.  We sat waiting to see if he would be able to get home or if he would be stranded there.  He had called stating that an accident had came in while he was there and he had to do an emergency surgery and was not certain what time he would be back.  He was relieved that  I had made it.

I made the two of us a bite to eat, although anything that she ate did not seem to stay down.  We were timing her pains and praying.

My friends had called to say they were home.  They had taken an alternate route part way due to the New York State Thruway closing.  I was relieved.

For the second time that day “I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock.”

Was it my daughter’s father and grandparents?  Had they made it before the roads had been closed?  Was it my son in-law returning home from work?

The contractions were ten minutes apart.  We still had time.  As long as her water did not break there was hope.

We listened for someone to enter, then heard voices outside.  It had been the neighbors next door coming home from work.

Each time I helped her into the bathroom, the pressure in her back increased.  The race against time had started.  The baby always wins in the end.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Special Kiss


Weekly Photo Challenge: Kiss

Kiss. There are a lot of ways to capture a kiss, between two people – lovers, family, friends; two animals, or even just the sending or receiving of a kiss. I captured this kiss between two storks in Morocco. I felt lucky to have captured this moment.

In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means KISS to you!

Daily Prompt: Whoa! It Was Awesome


Daily Prompt: Whoa!

by michelle w. on February 11, 2013

What’s the most surreal experience you’ve ever had?

I would say the birth of my own two daughters however it was painful.  Knowing that I brought new life into the world does fit the description.

My girls

No they are not all mine and before you start guessing they are the two on the right…My oldest in black and youngest in pink.

I was fortunate enough to be in the delivery room with my oldest daughter when she delivered my grand daughter Raizel.  Yes spell checker that is how it is spelled.  No I did not mean Rapunzel.

She is already in grade school, yet I can actually say from where I was standing it was incredible to actually see the baby being born.  She came quickly and has been in a hurry every since.

Watch through pictures as she grows:

Baby Raizel Small Raizel Small Raizel 1 Getting bigger Bigger yet Still growing Still growing1 Wow how big much bigger

 

It is amazing to set up something like this and actually see the years pass by you.  Daily Prompt:  Whoa!

Here is a picture of my oldest grand daughter who is my youngest daughter’s daughter (say that fast ten times lol)

Jasmine is in the center

Daily Prompt: Teachable Moment Is All About Hands On


Daily Prompt: Teachable Moment

by michelle w. on February 10, 2013

You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?

Not only am I a “Hands on Learner”, I also teach the same way.  This post is just above two about my newest student.  It fits in so nicely.

blanket6

There was a time back in the stone ages when I was just going through a divorce and could not afford to have plumbers, carpenters or electricians coming to the house to fix things.  So, I went to the local B.O.C.E.S. and took a Basic Electronics I & II Course.  If some basic wiring went wrong in the house or I had to change an outlet, a switch or  wanted to upgrade a lamp I could.

The local hardware store was wonderful.  They were only a phone call away.  My plumbing woes were solved.  I would walk in with a diagram of what was wrong and what I needed with the measurements and they would talk me through it with all the supplies.  If I hit a glitch when I got home, the speaker phone was on speed dial.

Since I did not own a car and had a really long driveway and an empty garage, a friend of mine asked if I would like to make some extra cash.  Hmm. Single mom, two teenage daughters and lots of formal dances to go to… First question, what am I doing? Second Question, Is it totally legal?

He changed out engines and his hands were so big that it was difficult to get into different areas.  I was his extra pair of hands.  With a set of overhauls and hair in a hat, I climbed into the truck.  With a can of WD40, I could loosen anything and get into the areas that were tiny with my long fingers.

When my daughters were older, I found myself going back to college as I needed some type of degree to get a decent job.  To work while I was going to school was difficult.  I decided to tutor while going to school.  I was supposed to tutor Anatomy and Physiology however, I found myself tutoring Computer 101 and English as well as Spanish.

Now I am taking my domestic skills and teaching others with a hands on approach.
