So Much To Be Thankful For

This lassie has much to be thankful for and I am grateful for the abundance of blessings God has provided me. Most of all, this car full of chaos!

From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!!

A Poem of a Lassie

Most friends call me Kat

The others call me Momma

Some don’t even call.

Wife, mother, sister

Maid, writer, confidant, friend

Short order cook too.

I’m the only girl

In a house loaded with boys

I am out numbered.

I like many things

Soccer, wine and chocolate

Don’t forget coffee!!

Sand between my toes

The colors of a sunrise

Smelling burning leaves.

Holding Hubby’s hand

A piece of cheesy pizza

Spring rain, a clean house.

I don’t like spiders

Ironing, clowns and onions

Heights and loud talkers.

Doing dishes – yuck!

Conform to society?

Not this sweet Lassie!

I can’t touch my toes

Can touch my nose with my tongue

Can’t sing worth a darn.

So now you can say

This Momma Lassie you know

For better or worse.

Her View

This post is for Trifecta: Week Fifty-One (Anniversary Challenge). The first paragraph was written a year ago by Joules and was the first-ever Trifecta response. Then BetaRules continued the story with 100 words. My job was to continue the story. Her is my 100 word response. Enjoy!

Charts and optimal dates and preferential temperatures. One line or two. As if she could summon whatever it is that makes up the human soul as easily as she could a cab on a busy New York avenue.

Her mind wandered back to that moment so many years ago. Despite her nervousness, she had known then that whatever the outcome, it would be all right. It was her destiny.

She opened her eyes. One line….. Gazing out of the floor to ceiling windows. Her office on the thirty third level, views across the park, the skyscrapers, the city. Today, this was her world. She had created an empire. Offices in seven countries, thirteen cities. Four hundred people. Appearances on TV, quoted regularly in the press. Success, money, recognition. Fate had been good.

She opened her eyes. Two lines…..

Though she had  an inkling, the sight of the double lines was shockingly unexpected. Stunned, Vanessa took two steps back and sunk into her over-sized leather office chair. She began to slowly rub her temples, “After all these years…. why now??

No sooner than she completed the thought her office door opened. It was her assistant, Craig.

“Vanessa… is everything alright? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Vanessa looked down at the framed picture of her husband in front of their beach house.

She took a deep breath and slowly raised her gaze to meet his, “Craig…. we’re pregnant.

Love Me Some Josh Doyle

Singer-songwriter Josh Doyle (formerly of the UK band The Dumdums) has just shared the official music video for his lead-off solo single, “Solarstorms.”  The track comes from Josh’s self-titled debut full length (available now on iTunes), which was produced by Grammy Award winning John Shanks as the result of winning a singer-songwriter competition through Guitar Center.

Doyle recently made his US television debut performing the single on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and plans to tour in support of the album in 2013. Watch away and let me know you thoughts!

Forever Searching

A lost little girl

Looks up with huge vacant eyes

Searching for answers

Ignite A Revival

I had given you my word, a promise from my soul. Kindled on my heart for the world to see. Your love inspired me to be more that I could have ever imagined. It revived what had been lost along the way and provided shelter from the storms.

I was willing to give you my world, every ounce of my being for just one ounce of your love. I left everything behind for a second of your time. Turned my back on what was expected to follow my heart.

I did what was least expected and threw caution to the wind.

My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog
100 Word Song is a writing challenge from Lance based on a weekly music prompt. 100 words – no more, no less. This week’s challenge was inspired by Bob Dylan, “Shelter From The Storm.”. And I made it a two-fer by incorporating Velvet Verbosity ‘s 100 word challenge. This week she challenged us with ‘Kindle’.
