IWSG March Post

Good Morning!
How is everyone this morning? I hope the cold weather is about over and warm spring breezes find their way to our house soon!

I'll be honest. This past month, I haven't been able to think about writing, much less work on it. I've had a lot of family emergencies, hospital stays, emergency room visits, and other sickness.

Last week, my uncle passed away. He was such a dear, sweet uncle. He was funny and silly. When you took a picture of him, he always had a photo he wanted to hold up with him. Once, we took a photo of him and my mom and a couple of years later, I took a photo of him, with him holding that photo of him and my mom. So silly! We put those photos on his CD for family.

Take the time to spend with your family. MAKE the time. Don't wait until a tragedy happens to visit and tell them how much you love them and appreciate them. Don't let death hold you in regret of what you wished you had said or done with those you love.

 No more regrets.

Do it today.
And every day.

Happy insecure writers day, you beautiful guys and dolls.
