Each Saturday people take the time to reflect on the week and then share at Ruth Ayres Writes. Here I am, once again a day late. It’s been that kind of week with school and the home front and the need to sleep commanding my attention. I missed my Tuesday post on Deowriter for SOLSC14. I missed Poetry Friday here as well.
But as I went to Ruth’s blog today and read her post on Personal Landmarks, I read words that reassured me that I am not alone. There are times we all struggle. This statement reminds me of my capabilities: “I’m a writer who writes –15 minutes each day on her current story.”
So now to my celebrations of the week.
Family. They are there when you need them. We had a week that the support and love of family was critical.
The CYBILS nominations of the Poetry books. I think we have a great selection of Children and YA books to review and select finalists for January. As the organizer, this has been one of the time commitments this week.
A co-worker and I engaged in a banter of Picasso quotes:
Jone, we all have those kind of weeks so I am glad that you made it through yours and are writing about it. I have had to miss writing community deadlines also and that does make me frustrated by life’s commitments are the first ones, I must remind myself.
Thanks, Carol. Life commitments do come first. It’s then I remember to breathe.
