Aging Gracefully #UseYourWords June 2016

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to 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 is the challenge, here is 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:
forlorn ~ loud ~ incessant ~ aging ~ stop it ~ crow
They were submitted by: http://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com (Thank you for such awesome words!)

The more she stared at the crow's feet that framed her eyes, the more forlorn she felt.
She hated aging. If only there were a way she could stop it, or possibly turn back the hands of time. Go back to when she was young and full of life. Those days were long gone. She realized she had been releasing a stream of incessant, loud sighs. Stop it. Get ahold of yourself, she thought to herself. 

She was only forty. She has so many more years ahead of her. She was not going to give in. She was not going to give up. She would not let time win. She was going to continue to live. To continue to learn. Continue to grow. Continue to accomplish things. She would not be a sad old lady. She would be a happy old lady. She would live every last day she was alive.

She would not give up. She would not quit. She would not stop. She would not forget to be grateful. She would not forget to focus on the good. She would not forget that there was good in this world. She would not stop being part of the good in this world. 

Yes, she would live. She would live every day, every moment. She would enjoy it. She would appreciate the aging and quit trying to stop it. She would embrace the wrinkles. She would love it and love life.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!! I hope you enjoy our Use Your Words posts this month!! Don't forget to check out all the other posts, to see how everyone used the words they received!!

    Age is just a number and aging is a gift that many don't get. Bring on those wrinkles and grays, bring on those sore joints. All part of the amazing life you lived. 40 ROCKS!!!!!

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.

My words are: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…
