I was planning another post to round the week off, a writing prompt for Write On Edge as I haven’t done a prompt in months.
I just wasn’t feeling it. I wrote 100 words and it just felt forced.
I believe readers can tell when posts are only written because the writer only wrote that for the sake of writing something (I’m a little pleased I managed to fit ‘written’, ‘writer’, ‘wrote’ and ‘writing’ in one sentence).
So instead, I decided it would be better for me to share someone else’s words with you today.
I practice the philosophy of ‘Love, Care and Share’, you see.
The following are some of the posts I loved in one way or another – it moved me to tears (damn hormones), it made me think, I felt less alone and yes, made me laugh. If you have some spare time this Friday or over the weekend, I urge you to indulge me and click on one or more of these posts I wish I had the words to write.
This story of a cookbook had me tearing up, over at Poor Man’s Feast: The Kindest Cookbook.
I could absolutely relate to this one at The Huffington Post about non-parents judging parents.
My heart hurt for Shell when I read her post about her difficult week at Things I Can’t Say.
I LOL’ed at this funny, illustrated post by Mayor Gia about hugging, or rather, please-don’t-hug-me.
I miss my Barbie dolls, thanks to the simply wonderful Mark at Our Simple Lives who shared his friend’s amazing Barbie collection.
Have a happy Friday and a fabulous weekend!
I leave you with this adorable toddler and his water cracker habit.
Do you have a favorite post to share with me? Yours or someone else’s? Would love to read it! (if I haven’t already)
*This post is very similar to Friday Tapas by What She Said, and I confess that I actually wrote this without even thinking I was borrowing Kristin’s concept. I just needed a filler to round up the week. BUT, I probably got the idea from her and it was stored in my subconscious. So credit Kristin, I must. Thank you Kristin, forgive my faux pas for having to add this in after publishing!
