Dear Mum
I see you as your thoughts drift back to the unvacuumed home, the overflowing wash basket and the unmowed lawn whilst the faint redness that rims your eyes and the slight puff beneath them belie the lost sleep whilst tending to bipap machines, feeding tubes or a child who, unable to self settle decides to start his day at 3am. 554 more words

Featured image I am reblogging this from my umbrella blog if you will. Sharing and just to explain what my process of writing it with others. Sharing that and responding and let me know what you do and like from the list would be great. I will edit. Also, I hope it helps you. I have to admit I took on something that could not digest here… I am an interfaith person but I cannot write about other faiths at this point in time. I include them as brothers and sisters but need to write about my Christianity faith until I can branch out on more so I can write about it. Sorry if I have disappointed and anyone but I firmly and wholeheartedly believe we all share same one True God no judgment here. So, due to my brain injuries, overwhelmed and digestive problems, it has taken me a while to pull together, ugh !!! But it is onward and upward from here and that’s the spirit I’m taking.  I am not looking for pity I do not like pity I am just explaining my journey and how I broke through those chains of what I went through to get me To STart with an other journey to hopefully help people also and learn from them. My to do list or I need to say my Driving for writing list for keeping up with blogging and reaching out to others: WHAT I DO BEFORE AND DURING MY WRITING ADVENTURE: 1. PRAYING BEFORE I WRITE THE POST/ ALONG WITH BIOFEEDBACK 2. FAITH IN MY WRITING 3, IMAGINATION/CREATIVITY TIME 4. DETERMINATION 5. PERSERVERANCE 6. REFLECTION 7. BELIEVING I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE 8. KEEPING IT SIMPLE 9. ENJOYING THE RIDE

  1. MOVING ON FROM EACH POST
  2. TAKING ON CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM AND LEARNING FROM (NO PERSONAL FEELING HERE )
  3. CREATING THE TIME TO PUT THE TIME IN THAT IS NEEDED FOR MY WRITING CAREERMaybe not in this order :)
