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!
Hope everyone is doing great, on this day February 8, 2019.
It is a nice mild weathered day here, with a slight breeze blowing. I was contemplating something recently. It has to do with a call for my readers or followers. I was wondering how a post or several posts dedicated to someone or otherwise. My thoughts on this post or posts would be to have you, my readers, followers, and such to send me love poems or love letters, perhaps, maybe something along those lines , dealing with love, for me to showcase on my page. I am hoping you will help me out with this. I would like to call the post title, “LOVE”, appropriately entitled.
I will be using this picture for the corresponding posts.
Again, I would like participation from my friends and fellow writers, and followers, I would ask that you send me the stuff you wish me to post, by emailing me at http://Mwsrwritings@gmail.com// Please get those to me by February 12th.
Please help me out. I shall see you on this side of the rainbow.
Hope You are all doing okay today and everyday thus far.
I am writing you all today just to let you know some things I have had on my mind lately. Thank you to all those who continue to connect and follow and comment on my webpage. I appreciate it so very much. It is a great honor to have people who genuinely appreciate your words and content.
I just want to say that I have been adding to my “Blue” series of stories. These stories are about a girl who has not had the best of lives but continues to keep moving forward, despite her upbringing and her obstacles. Blue is naive in a lot of ways, but she is hoping that the trust she puts into someone will one day be reciprocated and keep her happy. Trust is something that for Blue she finds most difficult to give to someone. She loves despite being hurt and wants to find her safe place one day. She witnesses lots of abusive things growing up and feels the impact from them heavily and wholeheartedly.
Please check them out if you get a chance.

I also want to say that I am trying to offer the readers something I myself am always interested in and that is my DID YOU KNOW, things I post weekly. I find that there are so many fascinating things for us all to learn. Here is your chance. Follow along weekly in case you miss something.
I am not sure what 2019 will bring for me and this page but I hope to gain more followers, make more writer friends and maybe publish another book soon. With that though comes certain difficulties and it will take time.
Please send me a comment or something you might would wish to see on my webpage and I will take it into consideration. I am always interested in what others find interesting.
I shall see you on this side of the rainbow and hope you all feel loved and blessed.
For those that celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas!
For those that do not, Have a Merry Day anyway!
I just wanted to announce this is my 203 day of daily posting. Yay me!
Also I am glad to see more followers, and I hope more will come. Thanks for all those who comment, follow, and share my posts. I really appreciate it.
Although I do not necessarily follow any pattern I do like to keep all of my different interests posting. I work hard to find interesting and helpful things to share with you all.
I am busy trying to get things together for our gift giving and celebrations at my house and my brother in laws. We go to his house on Christmas Eve and of course we are my house on Christmas Day. It is fun and taxing all in the same accord.Seems like we all prepare for about 20 minutes of unwrapping gifts. The time it takes to buy, wrap and share, goodness!
I hope everyone has love and comfort, healing and transitioning, wellness and support.
I shall see you on this side of the rainbow, again!
I was without power for over 12 hours this past Sunday, and without WiFi until an hour ago. It has been a real eye opener.
I have two toddlers in my household and four adults, it was interesting coming up with things to do for everyone. I had over 15 inches of snow here. It started Saturday at midnight. I live in the foothills and it was a big event getting that much snow. Thankfully no ice. But as everyone knows, when it starts to melt , if temperatures fall below freezing it will re freeze making icy roads. So we were pretty much trapped for a while.
I did not get to post anything, if I had not scheduled something previously, I would have had nothing to post. I had no WiFi so checking messages was far and few in between.
I just wanted to explain to those of you who were curious where I had been.
I am trying to catch up on things, so sorry for a delayed response to the messages, comments, etc.
