Writing 101: Day 2 Where would I go today?


writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

 

Sometimes we read things on others Facebook posts that were not necessarily meant for us but the point is taken anyways.
Today was one of those days as I glanced upon my wall and saw a post about Motherless by Choice.  It hit a nerve with me and hurt.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/katie-naum/motherless-by-choice_b_5417281.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000046

If I could be anywhere today just for a fleeting moment in time it would be to sit next to both of my daughters just for a few minutes of their busy lives.
To be able to give them a hug, a big kiss and tell them that I truly do love them.  How proud I am of them and their success in life.

I know that there are scars in the past life and that they hold them tight.  My heart aches over this and you can’t go back and erase time or get a redo.

Life is a learning curve.  We learn from our mistakes.  We get stronger as we get older and we learn what not to do again.

I have asked forgiveness and was not allowed to have it.  From that one must go one with life.  It does not help the pain.

As I sit here and shed tears it does no good.  I realize this.  Only a head ache will occur.

Just a few minutes to hug my grand children would feel so good.  I am not getting any younger and I know that my health is not getting any better either.
These past few years have really taken a toll on me and as I reflect back it is useless to comprehend on what could have been different.  It can’t change now.

Little do they know that my heart is always with them and that my thoughts follow them through their journey of life.  Even if it is only on Facebook or an occasional text.

Perhaps some day things will be different.  I pray every night that God will soften the pain for all three of us.

While Waiting at the Doctor’s Appointments


I am not a person who can just sit idle in a doctor’s office without getting antsy.
I love to take my crocheting with me so that I have something to keep me busy and keep my mind off of why we are there.
I have found that it keeps me focused and makes the time go by so much faster.

We had several weeks of  back to back appointments so here is my creations.

My inspiration was the scarf that Mikey had as a challenge at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Crochet-Crowd/116482731742088  The Crochet Crowd.

A hat to keep my head warm.  Fingerless Gloves with a hat of their own lol.  The shimmering heart scarf.

Some of my projects that I am working on are just too large to transport so I have to find little things to fill the void.

With my Kindle Fire I can download my pattern and take it with me.
I have also picked up many new prospective students too, who want to learn to do what I am making.

Let me know how I am doing so far…would love to hear from you.

What is your latest project?  Share it with me please.

Daily Prompt: How much info is too much?


Should You Let the Cats Out of the Bag? Blogging About Family and Friends

let-the-cat-out-the-bag

Here are a few suggestions that the Daily Prompt gave to use before you put yourself and your family out there into public viewing.  It may not be what you say but what someone else shares and comments on after that actually does the damage to the family relationship.

  • What if it were me? If you were reading your closest friend’s blog and saw a similar story about you — perhaps something you hadn’t shared with others yet — how would you feel? (What’s that; your closest friend doesn’t have a blog? Why not?)
  • If I were telling this story to a group of people, would I share these details? Picture the real-life equivalent of your blog readers: you’re at a party talking to a group of people, some you know well, some less so, some not at all. You’re telling the story. Are you okay with those to whom you’re less connected hearing it?
  • Am I talking about children? My children? They’re not in the same position to assert themselves and ask not to be mentioned; that goes double for other people’s children.
  • You’re browsing Facebook and see that someone’s shared the post with less-than-positive commentary; how do you feel? Do any protective instincts kick in? Blogging isn’t just about what you share, but how others run with that. Are you comfortable if someone takes the story and sprints in the other direction?
  • If a prospective employer or partner found the story, would reading it hurt your friend’s chances? This is unlikely, especially since you’re probably not using your friend’s full name with loads of identifying details; the underlying question is whether the story puts your loved one in any kind of compromised position. Whether or not they’re identifiable, it’s probably not ideal.

Lots of stories are fine to tell — the hilarious story about the UPS mixup your cousin told you at Thanksgiving probably doesn’t impact anyone, except maybe the UPS man. In other cases, it’s worth thinking through the what-ifs.

These ideas really sounded like a great foundation to keep peace and with the Holidays coming up and silly things possibly happening around the table perhaps this will stop a war in 2014.

If you are not sure if it will not keep peace in the family, here is my advice to you…

Some things in life are worth biting your lip and keeping it zipped.  Unconventional love does not always mean what we think.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this matter….leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this subject…

Do you agree or do you feel differently and why?

I am listening…

Daily Post: What Is Your Google Search?


Daily Prompt: Google and Rescue Operation

What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it? 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SEARCHING

While helping a friend with a large bit of typing, I decided to add a bit of style and fancy up a boring handbook of policies and procedures so I searched on Google to find a few images that I could paste on the handbook to make it a bit more interesting.  This broke up the pages a little and made it a bit more appealing to the eye.  Since the images were all topic related it let the reader know what they were viewing and what section they were in by the illustration as well as the title.

Would love to hear what you use Google for…

Leave me a comment and let me know what it is that this search engine has done for you lately.

Here is my little find from Facebook today…

Would love for you to take my poll.
I want to hear your comments on this.
I use Facebook for social as well as advertising and for reaching family.

oops
There are aspects that I am not happy with, that is true with any network.
There are simple changes that could be made to make life easier.
I got married, some of my friends do not recognize my new last name.
I am blocked from adding friends.
This does not stop me from using the network.
Life goes on.

Would love to hear what you think.
Headphones are not overkill, he needs all the help he can get

So let’s hear it…

This must be hot off the press as there are only two link backs:

Daily Prompt: Taking A Roadtrip


Daily Prompt: Trains, Planes, and Automobiles

You’re going on a cross-country trip.
Airplane, train, bus, or car?
(Or something else entirely — bike? Hot air balloon?)

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVEL.

I think that today my roadtrip has been on a broom…after watching the interview by Matt Lauer with Paula Deen today I posted a copy of it on my Facebook account.

So Hillary Clinton made jokes about Upstate NY people, and Martha Stewart went to jail…this woman had a gun held to her head and is persecuted for saying a word one time…what about the rappers of the world are they next?

What ever happened to not being biased when reporting or interviewing?
First of all she was at gun point back in 1986 when this happened and it was from a statement to the police.
My question was to the respondents in Facebook are the rappers next?  Why did Food Network take so long?

On a brighter note we have heard from Su Ho Woo who is traveling from Washinton DC to California by bicycle to encourage people to be aware of the need for peace in South Korea.

If you would like to send him a word of encouragement https://www.facebook.com/suho.woo.5 to cheer him on his journey.
He was in Flagstaff Arizona on June 21st.

I am going to have to do a road trip to use my gift certificate for http://www.joann.com unless I use the entire $100.00 online as the closest store is over 100 miles away from my home.  Not happy about that one.

Well now I am off to a road trip to get this finger looked at an hopefully be told the splint can finally come off.  It has been a long two weeks.

Perhaps I will stop smacking my hand so much and can get back to sewing, crocheting and housework.
So for now my only road trip is two visits this week to the doctors.  Today is my hand and Friday is another mammogram.

Daily Prompt: A Laugh A Minute


Daily Prompt: Ha Ha Ha

Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FUNNY.

Every morning my hubby peeks his head into my office to say good morning and that he loves me and his question is always “So what are you doing? Blogging?”  So this morning I turned to him and said I need a joke for my blog.  After getting through the deer in headlights look, he realized I was serious.  Obviously neither of us have had coffee yet as his response was:  “A sandwich walks into a bar and orders a drink…the bartender responds sorry we do not serve food here.”

Then, since I did not want to disappoint readers while my coffee is brewing I went to Facebook to see what they had for me:

225832_389267817845294_469871862_n 1017373_388880074550735_133041007_n 1003663_388407004598042_2038114601_n 1001786_509496952454959_824080981_n

 

My hubby’s latest contribution to Facebook is his motto for our grandchildren…
