Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear TammyeHoney

Weekly Writing Challenge: Dear ____________________

by Erica on October 28, 2013

To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge and include a link to this post, to generate a pingback and help others find the challenges. Please make sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed on Friday, and in our monthly newsletter.

For this week’s writing challenge, channel your inner Abigail Von Buren. Experiment with the question and answer format. Taking inspiration from a question you’ve been asked recently, whether in conversation with a friend or sent in from a reader, don your best counselor hat and share your expertise.

Not up for kickstarting your career as an advice columnist? We’ve got a few more ways to help get you involved with this week’s focus on advice.

  • What’s the best, or worst, piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
  • You’re the most important writer in the world, and everyone will be tuning in to your blog to listen to the one bit of knowledge you most want to share. What is it?
  • Do you live by the advice you give? Sure, it’s easy to dish out opinions, but are you a pillar of your own beliefs?

I give lessons on Cooking, Crocheting, Sewing and Knitting on a regular basis.  I do not feel this is classified as advice.  It is simply someone who has worked the problem successfully at a prior time who is able to lend a helping hand to someone who has never walked that mile yet.

Helping a friend who is a new mother and is nursing her first baby my advice is very simple.  The baby will let you know when things are not quite right.  If things are flowing in a set pattern and routine then life is good.  The plumber never puts in new pipes if there is not a problem.

If a problem is not going to make a difference a year from now, perhaps it does not need to be a top priority on the list.  A lot of problems have a way of working themselves out on their own without doing anything but praying for the correct way for God’s will to be done.  I always to suggest to pray for three days on the same subject before making a decision.  This gives a person time to think with a clearer head and thought patterns.

Just thinking before you speak as to how it will have an effect on others will sometimes change the wording that would have otherwise been blurted out.

Remembering others and that they have feelings that can get hurt.  To never speak when angry and to bite the tongue if it is going to be a cruel comment will save on an embarasing moment later on.

What questions as my reader would you like to see answered here?

Submit your questions and I will be glad to honestly answer them for you.  (Or find a great source for your answer)

TammyeHoney’s Advice column is now open to her readers.

Bring on the questions….

I am ready and waiting..

Daily Prompt: Do Opposite When You Do All Three?


Daily Prompt: Opposite Day

If you normally write non-fiction, post a photo. If you normally post images, write fiction. If you normally write fiction, write a poem. If you normally write poetry, draw a picture. (New) photographers, artists, poets: show us OPPOSITE.
 
I have been known to write a poem or two.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue.
Fictional stories thrown in, a few.
A scattered picture of me and you.
 
Today’s prompt came as a surprise.
What would I do here, compromise?
I could always write a pack of lies.
That would finish me off, my own demise.
 
I thought of a story of fiction to write.
A life of children to bring to light.
Of how love being shown is always right.
Saying I love you last thing at night.
 
To give a small hug and say I love you.
Does not take blood, does not cost too.
To find it hard to say and to show is true.
To turn away from God is the last thing to do.
 
If you have the love of God in your heart.
The family stays together and never apart.
The light of his love will shine, strong like a spark.
Your words will ring true, sung like a lark.
 
A simple prayer to those who have lost their way.
Please listen to what I have to say.
God did not abandon you or not hear your prayer, as you say.
He just answered it slowly in a different way.
 
When we lose a loved one so close and so dear.
Perhaps backs are turned from God from fear.
If we look at it from fresh eyes it may be clear.
The suffering spared, had they stayed here.
 
To see a machine that is all that gives one life.
Be it a father, sister, brother or wife.
If the pain and suffering would be like a cut from a knife.
Perhaps God’s plan was to spare that one’s suffering strife.
 
We must get on and cherish those near.
They could be gone in a flash or hurt severe.
Say the words today that make them dear.
Don’t hold back from anger or fear.
 
Anger will rob you from life’s golden treasures.
Hope will make it grow by leaps and measures.
Love will make it strong and bring you pleasures.
Life is too short, so grow angel feathers.
 
So find you smile and love your children as well.
It will cleanse your heart and will break the spell.
Children learn what they see and what is on the shell.
By your example is what their life will tell.
 
We teach hate with cruel words, love is shown by doing.
If the love is not seen, then resentment comes spewing.
A simple fix with prayer is the answer of cueing.
To turn back to God and allow his love to start viewing.

Daily Prompt: Is Love Enough?


Daily Prompt: The Road Less Traveled

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision.
Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us OTHER.

A short story of fiction, to fit the occasion.

It was a stormy evening, much like the past week of every evening there being storms.
 She laid curled up in the bed with her dogs thinking about her day.
She thought about the turmoil that her hubby’s drinking caused each day.
It had not started this way.  She had no clues in the beginning to know.
He did not drink at all the entire time they had dated, right into their first year of marriage.

Had it been the four friends who had died within a month of each other?
Was it the straw that broke the camels back to make him lose his will power?
Rationing seemed to work some days, then there were the days that he was too much.
She would walk out and just hand him the small remains of the bottle to have a moments peace.

As she looked around at the devastation going on around the world she wondered if it was better elsewhere.
To start again, at her age.  The thought sounded so exhausting.
She watched her friends and their relationships.
Some appeared happy, yet she felt a sense that all was not right with them either.
She looked around her own life and thought about what was good.  
She looked at what had been built by the two of them in a relatively short time.

Perhaps running away was not the answer.
She prayed daily for an answer and each night before she closed her eyes.
Hoping that God would show her what was the right thing to do
She had a lot invested in the relationship just to call it quits.

It was a long and winding road ahead and she knew it.  
Was it a fork in the road where she had to make a decision?
Could it be that just a few trees had fallen to block the path she was currently on?
She decided to just rely on her faith to get her through.  
She would let God handle the situation as she had in the past.
She knew this was the only answer that made sense to her.

Faith When We Need It Most


It was an odd Daily Prompt today about Faith.  I simply gave a poem for my statement.
To me that said more than I ever could about my position in life right now.

My hubby has an inguinal hernia that the Dr. is afraid is going to rupture.
His consult for surgery is not until July 25th.
I have two fingers that have been fractured on my left hand, which makes it difficult to function.
I am in the process of going through testing myself for a problem.

Last night, my hubby experienced a sudden drop in blood pressure and found himself on the floor.
I patched up his head with antibiotic cream and lots of pressure to stop the bleeding.
With an ice pack he layed back down.

God’s will we will carry on and get through it all.
Through lots of prayer and faith, I know that it will work itself out.

Patience is something that I have had a strong lesson in over the years.
Perhaps at times, I have a little too much patience.
I know that with everything happening in the world today, life could be a lot worse.

I think of the poor families in Colorado who are homeless due to a fire.
Some have had to evacuate their homes, not knowing if they will have a home to go back to.

As I sit here in the comfort of my home, I feel blessed.
My prayers to those families and others going through hard times.

Keep the faith and all things will work out in the end.  🙂

Daily Prompt: Journey Into The Past


Daily Prompt: Journey

Tell us about a journey — whether a physical trip you took, or an emotional one.

Photographers, show us JOURNEY.

CIMG2655

Last night with our house guest was an emotional journey for my hubby.  In his mind, he was able to go back in time to a period when he was so familiar with having biked with two friends across South Korea.

So Ho Woo and my hubby sat out by the fire talking about various places in South Korea that my hubby had been.  They even discussed a time when my hubby and his buddy’s had came across a funeral procession that they suddenly found themselves a part of.

As the evening progressed, one could hear the sound of laughter from both as they each shared stories.  With my hubby and his P.T.S.D., this was a good memory and one well worth discovering all over again.

The discussion of the process of how kimchi is made to the wall that is in South Korea, the topics were broad yet narrow.

God works in mysterious ways as my hubby was able to share with this stranger, things that he knew I might never totally understand.  This stranger was able to convey some of the fears that he faced while being on the road alone to travel his journey to Los Angeles.  Perhaps the most significance came in two strangers meeting on a road and becoming instant friends.  Perhaps a friendship that will last till death.

Of all of the cars that had past this lad on his journey.  To be stopped by an individual and asked in Korean if he was hungry.  That was the beginning of a journey.  One that we will remember for a very long time.

CIMG2660

 

 

Perhaps the next time you pass a bicyclist on the shoulder of the road, a kind word or offer of food or water might make all the difference to them.

So Ho Woo had an unexplainable bad experience in the Knoxville, TN area to then go to Nashville, TN and spend an entire evening alone.
We are glad that we were able to show him that Tennessee can be friendly and warm.
That kindness does exist out there in the world.
Perhaps others might think twice about laying on the horn and blaring the sound then saluting him with a middle finger as they pass him.

Shame on those motorists who missed out on the chance to take an incredible journey with a young man on a quest.

Your Words, Choose Them Wisely


603872_472916049446383_1179158025_n

 

You were not thinking when you spoke today.
The thought process caused you to go astray.
Your point was taken, yet you continued to say,
Hurtful words in a cold and meanless way.

You were not thinking of how others would feel.
You were Hell bent to get across your appeal.
To have said what you meant in a kinder fashion and deal,
Might have taken thought and a bit of  being real.

To touch a heart, to be warm and show compassion and caring,
Might be a new perspective, bold and perhaps daring.
Using tact is sometimes gold, and so worth sharing.
It does not leave scars, and does not need repairing.

The damage is done, we can’t turn back time.
Perhaps you will learn from my little rhyme.
If you hurt someone, perhaps each time you should pay a dime.
I would be on a beach in Costa Rica eating a lime.

Before the words leave your mouth, please think twice,
Perhaps what comes out might actually be nice.
By causing others pain there is nothing to gain but lice.
The point is not taken, not even by mice.

Perhaps someday, you might find yourself all alone.
Your words will have caused others to become stone.
They will not hear or care if you want to moan.
You will be alone upon your throne.

Heed my words as I do love you so.
In lifes journey we still have far to go.
If it is to be with me you need this to know.
To be kind is the seed that you must sew.

This is only written with love in mind.
Hopefully you will understand this in time.
It was not meant to be cruel or just make a rhyme.
It was to point out that love is important to share and find.

Look to God for help in all matters so dear.
He is right there standing by just waiting to hear.
Ask him for guidance to help you with what you fear.
Perhaps if you do the attitude will clear.

Tammye Honey
