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.

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot
