Happy New Year and Thank You!

I’d like to say the same! Thank you to each one of your likes, reblogs and comments! Happy New Year!

What's for Dinner Moms?

As we are finishing 2016 I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to read, like or repost my blog this year. My views and visitors doubled this year! As I read and comment on your blogs I realize you are all pushing me to try harder to improve. Thank you!

So, instead of a resolution I am posting my word for 2017. This word is to help guide my decisions and choices. DETERMINATION.  I sometimes get lost on my way to completion and this year will be the year of follow through and DETERMINATION.

Happy New Year, friends! May this be the year all our hopes and dreams come true.

🤔 2016? What a year!

I’m not sure what to think of 2016. It’s been a real rollercoaster to say the least. Many favorite people left this world, a new president was elected, people who were all about peace and harmony turned into the biggest hypocritical people they thought everyone else was, and our police officers, firefighters and the like who have lost their lives to save others.

I know there are years like that I’ve mentioned above and it seems to get worse every year. Now, I don’t know if since I’m older and paying more attention to what’s going on that it seems to get worse or if it really is.

My wish for 2017 is that we all try our best to the best people we can be and to each other. That we stop all the name calling and bashing of one another. That we lift each other up – not be jealous or envious but encouraging and rewarding.

I still live by that old saying- treat people how you want to be treated.  Sure, it doesn’t always “reap what you sow” but it shows character. It shows others that you can be kind in times of adversity.

So be kind, say kind things, and just be the best person you can be.

Until next time..Happy New Year!

Paying Tribute

Lt. James Lions

In the Arena

Since the news and social media have taken the time in honoring celebrities who’ve died this year, I think it certainly warrants paying tribute to those who leaned in, served our country honorably in the United States Armed Forces and also passed away in 2016.

May God Bless them all.

Longing

I long for the warmth of your arms,

For they made me feel safe from harm.

The night talks that seem to never end,

Creating a life long friend.

Falling asleep holding onto one another,

The love we had like no other.

I miss the laughter that once filled our days,

Filling my heart like warm sun rays.

I long for the simplicity of our new found love,

You’re all that I would think of.

Holding hands and longing stares

Though I’m left alone in tears.

Longing for the welcoming hello’s,

and the dreaded goodbye’s.

Now I’m left here all alone,

No one to dry my eyes.

A love that was once found has been lost once again.

With pleasures gone, I’m left here in pain.

Show, Don’t tell

I’d like to thank B for helping me get started in songwriting. His lovely lady for introducing us!

I have learned much through collaboration, practice and inspirations.

I’ve also learned you don’t have to be a perfectionist to write. I tend to over think what I try to express and therefore I don’t write for fear of failure. I don’t want to seem like I have no clue what I am doing 😂.

When I write, I feel like my soul is bared and I feel uncomfortable expressing those words that bare the soul. I can express emotions better in writing than I do verbally. I feel when I write it, I can hide it, but when I speak, there’s no where to hide!

I am still working on “show, don’t tell”. I have a difficult time showing what I’m telling when I write a story. Sometimes letting the reader use their own imagination is a good thing 😅.

Ok, I tried to get out of it. Didn’t work :-/

Until next time…show, don’t tell lol

How is your writing going? Do you take a break every now and then or are you a ferocious writer? I need breaks when I blog or write. Regularly. But not necessarily in a given time schedule. When I feel I get tired and can’t concentrate anymore I have a break, have a cup of […]
