Warm and Fuzzy #UseYourWords October 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked between four and six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.



My words are:

play dough ~ toilet ~ fuzzy ~ frantic ~ driving

They were submitted by: http://dinoheromommy.com (Thank you for such randomly awesome words!!!! For the record, fuzzy is my absolute most favorite word. True story. I am not really sure why. I just love it! Z is my favorite letter, so it probably helps that there are two in the word!)


On a side note... I will not even tell you guys the things Chad said, when I told him the words I was assigned this month! One of the things I love about Chad is that he is always interested in my subjects and words for our blog challenges. It is nice that he is interested in what I am doing on the blog! 



You have always made my insides feel warm and fuzzy.
With just one look or one kiss, you make my mind hazy.
I look back on the years we spent together.
All the good times and happy memories.
All the bad times and sad memories.
I am so grateful for it all.
The good times were so good,
that the bad times were worth it.
Even the night that I was driving fast,
completely frantic, worried about you.
Having got the emergency call from the nurse,
telling me to get there quick.
My mind was racing, trying to figure out what had happened.
I was hoping you were fine, but in my heart I knew.
Seeing you in the hospital bed.
Your body broken.
I knew then, even before they told me,
I knew life would never be the same.
Our bodies are not made of play dough.
We are not easily fixed.
Breaks take time to heal.
Organs are fragile.
Once the doctor told me the odds of your survival, 
I knew I wouldn't leave your side,
and I didn't. 
I stayed with you for weeks.
I only left to use the toilet,
or quickly wash up in the sink. 
I stayed with you.
Talking to you.
Telling you all I should have said while you were well.
Reiterating all I had said previously.
Letting you know my feelings and my thoughts.
Letting you know my fears and worries.
Even then, just touching your hand gave me warm and fuzzy feelings.
Even now, all these years later, I still get warm and fuzzy,
when I think of you.
I miss you.
I think I always will.
You will forever be in my heart.
You will always have a home in my life.
I know we will meet again.
Once my days are done,
I know you will be in Heaven to greet me.
I wish we had more time together here on Earth,
but regardless of how short,
I am grateful for the time we had.
You will always be my greatest love.
Forever and for always.
You'll always make my heart warm and fuzzy.

Make Jules a Billionaire June 2016 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week twelve brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.




My “Secret Subject” is: You are put on the board of a charity of your choice. What is your cause and why is it important to you? It was submitted by the lovely Karen of Baking in a Tornado.
I would definitely love to be the head of the board on the Make Jules a Billionaire Charity. I would love to get a headstart on lots of fundraisers and really get things rolling. Jules (I) really need to be a billionaire already. I could do so many good things, if I were a billionaire. I could fund orphanages and animal shelters. I could supply villages around the world with clean water and mosquito nets. I could fund medical research for cancers and other horrible diseases. 
If only. If you are interested, let me know in the comments, and I will give yo…

I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.




My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).
