Good Morning everyone, LindaGHill is here with our JusJoJan prompt! She says ” We’re back once again with the daily prompt! Today is your fifteenth prompt for Just Jot it January 2023, and it’s brought to you by Carol Anne. Thank you, Carol Anne! Please be sure to visit Carol Anne’s blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 15th 2023, is “gratitude.” Use the word “gratitude” any way you’d like. Have fun!

If you’d like to see what I have so far on your prompt list, you can find it HERE.

To say thank you is an easy way to show your gratitude. Two words that can mean so much or so little. If we are truly grateful we need to show it in kind as well as saying thank you and meaning it. There are so many things in my life that I am grateful for. My parents and siblings, My husband, our children, our grandchildren, our daughter in law. All our friends. The fact I can walk after breaking my back twice. That I survived sepsis, and a cholecystectomy. That the sun and moon rise and set, the beautiful animals that have been in my life, for nature…. So much! Books, music, art, people. Plus all the people I have met through blogging.

Today I am going to let music which I am so grateful for say it for me.

And to finish with Thank You For Being a Friend goes out to all of you guys for being my friends in blogland I am full of Gratitude to you you all.

The Imogen Heap song above? Well when I was leaning to walk again it was her music and lyrics that spured me on and inspired me to keep going. I owe her a huge debt of Gratitude. 💜💜

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #37. Use THANKFUL as your inspiration this week.

Gaia has given up her fruits and we gladly harvest them.
Like that first harvest it can be a life saver as days grow colder.
Let us all come together as one to thank Mother Earth.

When pain is over baring and I can’t get out of bed
I close my eyes and go dancing in my head.
I am still me even though I do not look the same
When I am feeling lost I play my saving game.
So sorry if you think me rude and blanch at things I’ve said
But when it all becomes too much I go dancing in my happy place, my blog or my head.

And now today day thanks to Dan Antion at No Facilities I have a new happy place The Island View Café . Thank y again Dan and friends for your hospitality. 💜

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!

This week’s form:

Tanka Prose.

I sit and watch her as she sleeps. She’s so tired these days age has taken it’s toll. I really am so grateful to her though the loyalty and love she shows me is far beyond wealth. She would follow me to the ends of the earth and truly so would I her.
Oh! She’s stirring now, bless her first action is to look for me.

love is her nature
devotion is her default

she’s my staff and stay
full of dreams of youth and play
she lightens my load always.

I also want to wish those who not mothers by choice or not a happy day to . So a happy day to all women .

Seriously have a good day. I am a mum, a mother in law and grandma plus an honourary mum not forgetting I am a mum to a fur baby too. My family spoiled me yesterday in honour of today.

Sadly my mum and mother in law are no longer with me infact I lost my mum over twenty years ago. My mother was a gentle woman, loving and kind, her favourite flowers were Anemone, I have written a Nonet about her and her flowers because I miss her.

Always small yet colourful
Never over assuming
Elf like colour pools
Mother loved these flowers
Open bright and blooming
Nothing pleased her as these
Enchanting little Anemones.

My Mother in law was an amazing woman, she never let anything get in the way of what she wanted to do. She lived to one hundred, she beat cancer twice in her eighties and nineties! She died of Covid in 2020 a wonderful example to us all.

God bless mothers and non mother’s everywhere.

#TankaTuesday 2/8/22 #Poetry Challenge No. 260, #SpecificForm: Abhanga

Welcome to Colleen Chesebro’s #TANKATUESDAY!

The form is: Abhanga.

My Abhanga is in praise of a new day and is inspired by the video below. The song by Imogen Heap, Xizi She Knows is in praise of the dawn and shows a city waking to a new day. The old man doing Ti Chi at the beginning and the older lady who throws her arms wide and screams her greeting to the dawn, (just before the shot of people throwing leaves off of a bridge) and the man with the gold flag are the shots that truly lift my soul.The whole video is a joyful greeting to the day.

In praise of the New Day.

We greet the new morning
Full of bright new promise
Energy slow release
A brand new day.

Time stands frozen and still
A city wakes, eyes wide
Roads are filled, rivers plied
Worship the sun

Collars turned to the cold
Hats and gloves combat chills
Birds fill the air with trills
Covered in frost.

Another chance to breathe
God give us a new day
And a push on our way
Praise be, thank you.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 6, 2021

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Here we are on Saturday and our host LindaGHill has set up our SoCs prompt : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “close eyes and point.” Grab the closest printed material to you when you sit down to write your post, open it up (if it’s a book, flyer, etc.), close your eyes, and point. Whatever your finger lands on, use that as your prompt. Have fun!

Thanks. The nearest printed matter was a card from our middle son. I followed the instructions to a T. What I ended up with was THANKS. Well what can I do with that I asked myself, well I can celebrate it. Funnily enough it’s cropped up a lot this week. Firstly the card.

From our middle son, thanking us for helping him achieve something he never thought he might.

Then there were the flowers from hubby as a thanks for looking after him while he has been unwell.

Then there was the phone call from eldest son who said Thanks so much for being an ear and shoulder while he got through isolation and Covid the other week, miles away and on his own.

Just when I thought I was thank you’d out I got this what’s app from youngest son.

[05/11, 07:48] Hi Mum, I was thinking you of you this week. Especially when I was ironing the boys school shirts
Thanks for doing mine for all those years 😊

Well I thanked them all and I have to admit they all made me feel a million pounds, so I made sure I thanked them back .

Such a tiny word
Yet it means so very much
It lifts the spirits.

It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Word Crafters, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you! This opportunity only happens once a month!

So entwined
Wrapped up together
Joined as one
At the hip
It’s our truth, our forever.
We grow love through us.
