Jumping for Joy!



I’m jumping for joy today because of you.  Today I get notification I have 500+ followers and I find it amazing.  I feel very humble actually because like a lot of writers I don’t rate myself.  Your support, likes and comments mean so much to much to me.  I’ve made friends too, I feel like I know some of you, it’s a great feeling.

I started this blog a few years back and wrote a few stories when I was coming to terms with mum’s illness, it helped me process what was going on and helped me make sense of my emotions.  I was never a serious blogger and let it go shortly after her death.  I don’t think I could have written then if I wanted to, I was exhausted and didn’t have anything left in me.  I started writing again this year and it seams I can’t stop, I love it.  I wake in the night thinking of ideas, I check out WP on waking and last thing at night.

I love to read your posts and see such wonderful photography and art.  You make me think, pause, laugh, cry and cook all in the space of a day!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!


Daily Prompt – JUMP


Jump – DP

You really made me jump,

I did not know,

that you might return

after having to go.

But there you were

at the end of the bed,

I thought it strange,

maybe in my head.

Oh how I wish now,

I hadn’t  screamed out loud,

my head was foggy,

just a mass of cloud.

I’m sorry you went,

believing I didn’t care,

I really need you near me

again, just over there.

So now I’m prepared,

I sleep with in dimmed light,

hoping and praying,

you’ll return one night.
