In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “When Childhood Ends.”
Write about a defining moment in your life when you were forced to grow up in an instant (or a series of instants).
When I said I do to the man I married catapulted me into a place I had no idea I was headed. Having children sent me further into that place. A lifestyle change and unfamiliar responsibilities set me on a path I’d never traveled before. Me, myself and I took a back seat to my expanding family. It was all good.
My childhood didn’t end completely. There were times that it was revisited. Playing with my children and taking them on adventures gave me an opportunity to experience parts of my childhood. Sneaking free time to act silly with my husband gave us throwback moments of childhood silliness.
When we remain young at heart I believe the good memories of our childhood never have to end.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Must Not Fail.”
What is the one thing at which you are the most afraid of failing?
Failing is like giving up. I’ve always said, “I don’t have a give up bone in my body”.
Since that is the case, failing is not an option. I will always keep pushing through and moving forward.
Everything I put my hands to will prosper.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “From the Top.”
If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.
I had a chance to be reborn and I took it. That is what happened when I gave my live to Jesus Christ.
I didn’t have to die and come back to experience being reborn. I became a new creation in Christ by submitting my life to Him and repenting for my sins.
I physically didn’t turn into something else on the outside but the change, transformation and newness of life happened on the inside. I invited Holy Spirit to come live in me and He did.
When I do leave this earth I will go to be with Jesus. That will be such a grand and glorious place and time that the last thing I will be thinking about is coming back here as something else.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Daily Ritual.”
Think about your day. Select one of your daily rituals and explain it to us: why do you do what you do? How did you come to adopt this ritual? What happens on days when you can’t perform it?
I work part-time any three days a week that I want. I usually work Monday through Wednesday. Every once in a while my ritual is changed because I have to change a day or two or maybe three. It’s a real task to make the adjustment but it always works out.
The hours are 9 am to 4 pm but I’ve been blessed to work 7:30 am to 2:30 pm. I don’t have an office. My desk sits in the middle of all the traffic and commotion which is distracting. Going to work earlier is a quiet time and I can get more done.
So far there hasn’t been too many times that I can’t perform my ritual.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Monochromatic”
This week, share with us your monochromatic images. Be calculating and creative in choosing your subject and focal point; resist the urge to simply take a photo of something with a single color range.
