The Urge

It’s 11: 48 p.m. and I’m writing. I was snuggling in to sleep, gently relaxing when … I didn’t post. Yep, I was nearly asleep and realized I had forgotten something. It’s writing. I did read a few posts today and commented. I am not sure if I will keep writing daily, but I’m back in the swing of it. I have several books to post and am anxious to savor a several more this week during Spring Break.

I read my post about Elizabeth to my mom today. She loved it and asked for a copy. She has the picture already displayed, but I know the words were a gift. I don’t think I would have written that piece if it hadn’t been for Jessica Whitmore writing her piece about her son. I know there was another lady who wrote about her son and how to answer the question, “Do you have children?” (Sorry; it’s late. I’ll look it up tomorrow and link.) So many times I would read a post and an idea would come. I learned how to strike out a word to show my thinking from Christy Rush-Levine. I learned much from you all and will continue to do so on Tuesdays. See you then!

    I’m still up too, Mary Helen. Nice to hear your words. I remember reading that post, but don’t have the link either. Have a nice break; I’m back tomorrow!

    Your post about Elizabeth was beautiful. I felt a knot in my chest as I read it, but then at the end, was able to take a deep breath. The picture of your daughter by your sister’s resting place is so encouraging. Amazing things can germinate from heartbreaking losses. Thank you for sharing something so personal.

    P.S. I understand the use of the strikeout, thanks to Christy, too!

    I felt at loose ends all day. I went back and read a few of the late posters from Saturday. My mind was thinking what will I write? But I didn’t, good for you to continue.
