A Fairy Tale…

A Fairy Tale

girl-157533_640 (1)In the Realm of Reality, Babe and Hunk, each dreamed of finding that perfect someone to marry and live happily ever after.  They both had their share of relationships that they ended because they were unwilling to settle for someone who was less than perfect.  When they met passion engulfed them and they were blinded by love and they married in less than a year and moved away from the Realm of Reality. Of course, they knew their own faults and frailties, but could see none in the other.  Blissfully unaware of the imperfections of the other, Babe and Hunk lived happily ever after in the Land of Lala.

                                    without imperfections will never find what he seeks.”

A twofer today…

52 Weeks of Gratitude.

I missed posting last week.
I planned to have a post for it, but it just didn’t happen
so I will have a twofer today.

The prompts are

# 11 Someone who inspires you
#12 Your favorite personality trait

woman-558378_640There are so any people who inspire me.
There are those who are no longer living,
but I am focusing on those who are in my life today.
I have friends who inspire me every day.
They are kind and generous, have wonderful humor,
are smart, humble, strong, and helpful.
They encourage me, laugh and cry with me,
tell me the truth be it good bad or ugly, and
most cherished by me, they pray for me.
They inspire me to be a better person because
they believe I am better than I am.
I want to be the kind of person they think I am.
I love them dearly.
I am thankful they are in my life.

The traits listed above are ones I appreciate in others
and hope I have at least a smattering of all of them.screamingkitty
The trait I have that is my favorite is
my sense of humor.
I laugh easily and people around me
seem to laugh.
Well, most but not all. I guess some folks just don’t get me.
I am grateful that I do have
a good sense of humor.
It has gotten me through some rough times
and makes the good times even better.

So, there it is my grateful twofer.

are things that weren’t always part of who I am.

  1. I have a quiet and gentle spirit.
  2. I can forgive and not hold a grudge.
  3. I have a sense of humor.
  4. I am open to new ideas and new ways of looking at things.
  5. I have learned from the past live in the present and look forward to the future.

1 and 2 are gifts I have been given.

Mind forgotten…

Today I am linking to
In Other Words
the prompt is
“I do know my own mind. The trouble is my mind changes and then
I have to get acquainted with it all over again.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery

and

Five Sentence Fiction
the prompt here is
Forgotten

old woman

Over the years, her mind has changed from quick and bright to slow and foggy.  Somehow the connection     between her mind and her life has been lost.  There was a time when she knew her own mind.  These days she needs to be reminded of the simplest things.  Now she sits in her chair puzzled and wondering how can it be she has forgotten who she is.
