Hey there! It’s January 13th and time for your 13th daily prompt for LindaGHill’s Just Jot it January 2020. Your prompt today is brought to us by Willow!. Hey that’s me, do pop by and say hello. I’d be glad to meet you .
Your prompt for JusJoJan January 13th, 2020, is “subscribe.” Use the word “subscribe” any way you’d like. Have fun.
Well can you believe it today I have chosen the prompt and not only am I extremely late posting but I cannot seem to write a word of interest. I have tried a poem, a story and even plain facts but I just can’t find my muse. I don’t subscribe to the train of thought that life is what you make it, if was there would be no poor, no pain no misery because if life is what you make it why would you make it so bad?
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Writing from your own prompt can often be the hardest!!!
You are not kidding I had about six attempts and still not happy. You’d better watch out as your up this week aren’t you 💜
Yup! I think its tomorrow!
Good luck Hun 💜
Hi! Thanks for the prompt. The sewn lips, not so much. I agree with your assessment of this positivity think and will probably come from the same point of view. I’m sure those in tent cities and chemo rooms don’t subscribe either.
Yes indeed, it must be impossible to make life what you want in some horrendous situations. I think my second poem was more positive. Thank you for reading 💜
Yes, I do love your second poem better. I didn’t get to read it while I was perusing on my phone. Now I need to figure my own blog for the day.
The second poem is a much brighter piece glad you liked it. Good luck with today’s posting 💜
I often have trouble coming up with stories when my photo is used in Friday Fictioneers!
You did well…
Thank you Dale but it was a reall uphill struggle 💜
Ya done good 😉 🧡
Thank you Mam 💜💜
Not bad at all at the end. I don’t know much about poetry but it came across clear and well. I can imagine when you’re forced to do something it is more difficult than when it’s something given by someone else.
Thank you Linda 😜💜
Thank you I am glad the poetry came across for some reason I found my own subject difficult? 🥴💜😁
I love your poems! You did a wonderful job of answering your prompt, my friend. ❤ Thanks again!
Thank you Linda for making us think during January 🌹💙
