Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, every day Di at pensitivity101 list s three things that may, or may not, be related.
The challenge is to simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you, using one, two or all three words in your post. There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the logo if you wish.
Your three things today are:
Tom’s mobile buzz as it danced around the worktop. His eyes opened wide as he read the text. “£4000 in an envelope by noon”
Tom was stunned, unbelieving of what he’d read. Who would be threatening him and why?
The phone buzz again, “Sorry predicted text, I meant £40. pounds in cash, in an envelope. Need it by noon, the guys dropping the tickets off and will only take cash”
Tom looked again and recognise it was his brother’s number. In his panic he’d not looked at the number.
Excellent he said to himself he got those tickets to the match. He’d drop his n money round immediately. Phew!!
This is part of pensitivity101’s 3 things challenge.
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.

The match , as in a football match, being English that would be soccer. I am doing fine, waiting for my operation. How are you doing 💜
I’m writing modern day interpretations of the parables, learning, and trying to finish the longest story ever written, but i get to side tracked it’s unreal. Always remember, the power of Spirit within, when you make space inside you, your health improves, great for easing pain, be blessed
I shall remember that , your project sounds very interesting .
i have encountered heavenly help on a regular basis, and it’s all fact, no fiction, if you need a prayer, just ask, amen
Thank you I shall remember and I can pray for you too if you need
when you create space for the Spirit within, you immediately begin to feel better, it’s that simple, cheers, and thanks for your prayers
It’s a true pleasure 💜
