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: (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.

  1. How beautifully you made this sad story flow.

  2. Something happened to warm and fuzzy... you got me weepy :-(
    Very nice job, J!

  3. Beautiful story, even though it is a sad subject. I feel warm and fuzzy...and a little weepy.

  4. That was so beautiful and heart breaking at the same time. That was a perfect way to use your words.

  5. Wow I sure wasn't expecting that! What a sad, but beautiful tribute. I loved how you chose to use these words!

  6. Such a bittersweet poem! Flows so smoothly you don't realize when the sweetness ends and the bitterness of heartbreak begins. Well done!

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.
