I thought it had been some time since I wrote to you all. I was right. How are you all doing? I am listening to the dramatic wind today! It literally is tossing and thrashing around my city today. I have some sticks and limbs that have fell from nearby trees laying in the yard. The wind is seriously powerful. I hope it dries up all this wet and muddy land. It has been raining fa lot this past week.
I will be celebrating my granddaughter’s fifth birthday this coming Wednesday. She truly is a light in my life and I am so in love with her. I really think my life would be serious boring without her in it. She is talented and sweet, meek and smart, funny and serious. I am thankful for each day that I have been given her.
Haven’tate yet. I made some tuna salad and will be eating that soon enough. What did you guys have for your meals today? It is fascinating hearing what others eat. I help run several Diabetic sites on Facebook and we have a lunch roll call everyday for them. This is just a reminder to help remind them to check their blood sugars and to eat, and make better choices. I am administrator so if any of you wish to join, look me up, Diabetic Anonymous, Diabuddies United,etc. They are all on Facebook.
Also, I am so excited for Valentine’s Day. It is no secret that I just love, love Heart Shapes. So yay for me. I can collect some more different ones as the holiday approaches.
I hope you are still enjoying my page and finding things that are good for you and interesting. Please send me comments, emails, or what have you to let me know if you do! Please share my stuff guys! That makes this whole webpage success and joy for me is knowing someone can benefit from the things I post. So thanks in advance for sharing, liking, and commenting.
I’m hanging in there , trying to keep productive and bring you guys good content and cool stuff. I have also been sharing poems I’ve wrote and stories I’ve found. Places and animals are also something I like to share.
Anybody that knows me knows I have a soft spot for animals, especially my own. You’ll see them on the posts I do. I use their pictures a lot.
Just want to say thanks for reading, sharing, commenting, etc.
Been a while since last I wrote. Hope everyone is happy and content.
I wanted to say, “thank you again!” for reading, supporting, commenting, and sharing my posts! I love being able to offer helpful information and information that could benefit another’s life.
I have been doing the grandmother thing and keeping up with two of my three grandkids, whom I adore. Although I adore them, they keep you busy. They want and need all kinds of things at their age. They are 4 and 3. I have another one who is 1 and he is the same. They are such a refreshing addition to my family.
I really enjoy finding cool things to post and hope you enjoy them as well. I am hoping that my poems can touch you and add something to your life as well. I write purely from my heart and experiences. It sometimes is hard to convey just exactly the right words for my thought and feelings. Personally my feelings go all over the place and in writing, I am able to capture a few of them and share.
So remember you are worthy to be loved, respected, cherished, and happy!!!! And I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!
So I hope everyone is fairing well this Monday! I just wanted to say “Hello”.
I am going to be discontinuing the Question of the week category I was attempting to do. Seems like no one is really interested in it so I might occasionally pose a question but for now I am not worried about doing that weekly.
I just try and bring things of interest to the forefront, by reposting and sharing things I find in a vast variety of venues. Things like Health, Exercise, Diet, Recipes, Poems, different interest in animals, and such. I hope you will always find something of value or interest.
If you have any suggestions or comments for me, please feel free to leave them in the appropriate comment box or you can email me at Mwsrwritings@gmail.com.
Another thing is I no longer have chat so I thought I would let you know that.
As far as where I hope my blog will go this year….
I hope it will expand in it’s following, and commenting. I hope to get more visitors, more likes, and to form new writer friends. I see many more poems in my future! I am also not doing a good job at making my new poem book but that is okay. I have had a lot going on this year. There has been a handful of things that needed my attention.
I hope to see everyone on this side of the Rainbow!
Well that last post that I tried to do somehow did not come out right at all. So I am trying this again. Hope everyone is doing good and is well. What are y’all up to?
I have been working on my book.
I also have been doing some of my poems in podcast form from Podbean, look for ”mipoet” that will be mine.
I would like to know if y’all are enjoying that are not. Let me know it would be kindly appreciated.
Just wanted to let you know that next week I will be serving my jury duty. They said to prepare for all week so I won’t be posting as much as I normally do I have some things already scheduled.
For those of you who don’t know what jury duty is you should probably look that up.
It is our civil duty here in America to participate in the jury duty if we have been selected.
Anyway, I have also tried to include chat for those of you who have questions or comments that you want me to answer if I’m online it will show you if I’m not. You can leave a message just look for the message icon in your lower screen when you’re on my webpage.
So I think that’s about it everyone try to remember that you deserve to be loved, respected, and treated fairly. And I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!🌈
Hey everybody! Hope everyone is fairing well this Friday!
I am going to express a few random thoughts, not in any particular order.
I love waking to the bright beautiful sunshine. It makes the start of another day, somewhat special.
I am drinking coffee and sitting here scrolling WP reader and reading some posts from you guys.
I love a community that gives back to one another and I believe WP can do that and often times does.
I love the variety and I am hoping my webpage gives that to others. I try and hit things that reach a different genre of folks.
Tomorrow, I will attempt to do some outside gardening. I hope to put some “already growing “veggies in the ground. My seeds I started inside during March and this month, have long since been planted. Some were great and are doing fine, while others are not. I have something eating my peas and I am not a happy camper. I have hung dangly things and fencing and I am not sure what else to do. We shall see how it goes.
I live with my two grandkids and my daughter, their mother. To say life is boring is a far stretch from reality. I enjoy the precious time I have with them. Although they love to be mischievous and a handful at times. I think it keeps me young and keeps me going. This was not how I pictured my life, at the age, I am now, but I am glad that God saw fit for me to have this most precious time with them. Kids grow up way to fast and in 20 years or sooner, they can move onto their own life and sometimes you rarely see them. I am never going to regret the time spent with my own kids or my grandkids.
I am currently, and very slowly, working on another poetry book. I want to give insight and hope to others. My life was never easy and was not handed to me with bows and balloons, or gift wrapped even. I learned painfully and strategically how to do what I wanted and get to where I needed to be, to feel safe and loved and happy. Still, actually, I am working on it with each day. It is a thing that takes time and work.
Learning to trust has never been my forte’ but I am trying to let go of my insecurities and shortcomings. What we learn as a kid and how we are treated will pass into our adult life. We need to grab the reigns and hold on and make it go where we need it to go.
I am getting much older than I ever really thought about. So this time in my life is something I am trying to learn. It brings new challenges and new things. I hope to go through this life more gracefully and sure-footed.
Thank you to all who genuinely care for others. That is what I am sure, life is all about. So many of us are hurting and lonely and misguided. So many are treated cruelly and permanently messed up because of the people that were or are in their life. We all can try to reach out a hand to others and try to love with kindness and concern. Love like that is a genuine love.
I have so much more to share or say, but I will save that for another time. Thank you all for reading, for following, for your comments and your appreciation.
Well, let’s see… I hope everyone is fairing well. I am trying. It has been raining here so much, I have actually thought of buying a boat, haha.
Rain is alright but not loads of it. I am writing because believe me or not I am turning 50 this coming Saturday. I am not in any way a fan of turning 50 nor do I like the fact I feel 30 but am actually going to be 50. I look young, think young, and feel for the most part, young.
Not to say that I have not had three kids, now have three grandkids, and have been married for 24 years. With that kind of thing comes comfort, familiarity and “use to its”. I like the fact that I am young looking, helps my ego a lot. The one thing I do not like is having diabetes and having things that pertain to years of having it. Diabetes can certainly age a person.
I like the same things, but my eating habits have greatly changed from my younger years, for sure. I like the same people and some have been in my life since I started school. That is a long time to know and keep in touch with a person. I have lived over half of my life with the same person, my husband and I would not know what to do without him. Those kinds of things make getting older, sweet and comforting.
Now if I was to name things I do not care for about aging it would be first and foremost, pain. Things that keep you awake in the middle of the night and those things that limit your abilities, those are the top of the list. I hate seeing those “told you so’s” hit me in the head. I do not like the fact I see my loved ones and friends die. I don’t care for tooth issues that present themselves out of the clear blue, as if to tell me my teeth are old too.
I wish sometimes I could run like the child, I use to be, and how they did many moons ago. I have not yet got to live out all my wishes and dreams. I long for the simple days of my life but cannot seem to find that peace. I do not mind wrinkles, nor do I mind the fact that I am most definitely in the “ma’am” category and not the “young lady” one. I don’t like the rude younger generation that seems to think the world owes them something. The world does not owe anyone anything, young or old.
In getting older I see things that this coming up generation never will. I will be able to tell my grandkids things they have yet to know from books or encyclopedias. I will be referred to as, “the one who knows” and I will be the considered smart for the simplest of tasks because this generation has technology in their pockets more than the fortitude to discover things “hands-on”.
I loved being wild and carefree. I never thought of myself as I am today, back in those younger years. I could not of foretold all I know and have learnt. I simply did not ever give thought to growing this age. Seems now, all I give thought to is mostly this age, peppered with memories of how things used to be.
If I could offer words of wisdom to the readers of this, out there, in this world, I might tell you to never stop believing. Never let your mind and heart grow tired of trying. Lift someone else up and hold them till they can do things on their own. Spend time with those less fortunate and try to put yourself in their place and understand why things are how they are for them. Say your prayers of thanksgiving and gratitude to those who have helped you ad brought you along beside them. Please, NEVER stop dreaming of a better life, a better world or situation. It can happen.
Things do not happen in a day, they happen when we work for them. Things do not just follow us till we realize it, we need to search for ourselves. We need to love, accept love, and graciously express it. We need to make this world, our people, and all that is in between a better place. We are not alone here. If in getting older you can be a better person, give more, be more, and achieve the impossible, you and each person you have influenced will continue. A small piece, a large piece, it does not matter, those pieces multiply.
I may be turning 50, but my mind is still good. My eyes still see, and I still feel things like for the first time. I have much to give, little I need, and advice that I need to share.
Thanks for reading! I shall see you on this side of the RAINBOW!
