Maddening

Daily Prompt: Maddening I know I have to do it, but I just can’t seem to gather the energy needed to face the maddening crowd of Christmas shoppers out there this year, all bustling and jolly. Just thinking about walking into another festively decorated shopping centre, Christmas carols playing, shop assistants smiling, makes me want…

What Christmas Personality are you?

The Grumpy Grinch I’m feeling a bit exhausted by the thought of Christmas? My Christmas wish this year is that I maintain a little sanity; as I try to focus on love and peace, while in a mad panic – I drive 100 or more kilometres in a round trip to catch up with all…

Be time

Tip Jar: When life gets busier than it should, through no fault of your own (or even by your own hand), it makes the importance of slowing down – glaringly obvious. The Tip Jar says: Everyone deserves as much Be time as they can get, take it where you can my friends. Take it where you can….

kids and dogs

November 3: 2016… This week was all about kids and dogs at our house, how nice it was to have cancer be the last thing I thought about as we got up each morning. Although with treatment ongoing, cancer was still very much a part of our every day, it was great to have an…

Transformation

Daily Prompt: Transformation There was no big bang, no ton of bricks hitting me unawares, it was more a subtle shift, a gradual change. Not only in thought, but feelings and direction too.

Artificial

Daily Prompt: Artificial Her smile as fake as the plastic plant sitting in the corner of the room, her contempt for me obviously hard to hide as she motioned to the chairs in front of her with the sweep of a well manicured hand. We sat! Eric and I gave each other a sideways glance and…

Volunteer

Daily Prompt: Volunteer a personal observation… The support she offered came from a place of true knowing. She was gentle, unobtrusive yet attentive. She was there for anyone who needed her. She offered the kind of comfort only those who had walked this path could. Fluffing a pillow here, offering a caring gesture there. She was…

Millions

Daily Prompt: Millions What were the chances on that night of a million different things, a hundred different thoughts, dozens of decisions and several serendipitous occurrences leading to the two of us being in the same place at the same time, creating the exact moment our two worlds would collide? Two complete strangers met, married,…

Breakthrough

Daily Prompt: Breakthrough Today’s daily prompt reminded me straight away of limitless hope. The hope you hold on to when life depends on the particular breakthrough you’re waiting for. That waiting game can be excruciating, and it breaks my heart to think about how many of us are playing it. So; what do I do personally…

Unfinished

Daily Prompt: Unfinished The door slammed behind him with a force that made me jump. Not the best way to start this day I thought, as I picked up the broken pieces of my grandmother’s crystal vase. I know it wasn’t intentional. It’s not like he had pushed it off the hall table in anger, his…
