Non Fake News #UseYourWords

Welcome to September's Use Your Words post. 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:
blue ~ fake ~ trust ~ file ~ head

They were submitted by: Minette of Southern Belle Charm

I have been staring at these words for almost two hours. Now, admittedly, I was not staring constantly. I am also watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. It can be quite distracting. There are not many shows that I can get truly lost in, but Grey's is one of them. I already had a plan for my words, but I then when I sat down to put the post together, I suddenly didn't want to follow that plan. The problem is, I don't really have any other plan either.

So, I decided to just kinda ramble on to y'all about the thoughts in my head. Are you scared? Maybe you should be. My head can be a scary place at times. You can trust me. I won't release any of the truly crazy things.

First thing first, and I promise this is not fake news... I am getting new glasses. On Wednesday, all three of us had eye appointments. It was Gigi's first, and she did well. The only bad part, was the end, when she realized she would not be getting glasses. She was so upset. She apparently really wanted glasses. To be honest, she is adorable in glasses, and so I don't blame her. I look horrible in glasses, so I was a bit sad about needing them. I am excited to be able to see again though! So excited! I am going to order my glasses today. I am leaning towards a pair of blue ones. I like them, and blue is Gigi's favorite color, so she will probably love them. Happy Gigi, happy life. That is my motto.

This next update, can be put in a file labeled Bahumbug. Years ago, I was told I would end up in a wheelchair, by the time I was between 60 and 65. Since 2010, my health has been on a roller coaster ride, and I was told it could happen as early as 40. I have been using one off and on, for the past few years, but I do my best to avoid it. Unfortunately, I was informed on Wednesday that my condition has worsened considerably. I have no idea why, but my condition was advancing at about 30 mph, and then suddenly in the last few months, it increased to 220 mph. So, I have reached the finish line way above schedule. So, as you can imagine... These thoughts have been racing through my mind since hearing the news.

I have also been thinking a lot about Global Warming, Natural Disasters, End of Days, foreign relations, etc etc These are scary days that we are going through. Truly scary. I am trying to keep the faith, that in the end, things will work out well. That people will step up to the plate, and good will triumph over evil. I have been trying hard to control these thoughts, so that I don't get too upset over it all. Just trying to keep the faith. 

So, tell me... What has been going on in your life? What thoughts have you been having? How are things? 

Make sure you go check out what words my blogger friends were assigned, and how they used them. I'll be grabbing a cup of coffee and meeting you there!!

Links to the other “Use Your Words” posts:


  1. So sorry to hear about your health issues. Can they tell you what is causing this downward spiral, and what you can do to limit damages? Keeping the faith is always a good idea. Sending lots of positive vibes your way! ♥

  2. I am really hoping that a specialist can come up with a good strategy for your health issues.
    I think a lot about all of what's going on in this country, how many steps forward we had taken and how quickly those footprints are being erased.

  3. So happy about your new glasses, but so sad for your health issues. Can't anything be done? Science is making so many strides forward, but some things just seem to have huge gaps. And I agree with you. All the steps forward that took such effort to make can be so easily erased. Why does it take so little evil to wipe out so much good?
