Value Each Second

I'd like to take a moment to thank each one of you for understanding and reaching out to me during this hard time we are facing.

Your prayers and words of kindness are greatly appreciated.

We often take moments for granted, but this experience with his health as well as my own has taught me how important it is to value each second.

Covid-19 has made all of our lives a little bit more challenging, but try to reach out to the ones you love.

We truly don't know when that last second might be.

Here in the United States we had an outbreak of deadly tornadoes touching down in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio and Tennessee. Over 100 people were killed.

Many people were at their place of employment. Some were trapped inside a candle factory in Kentucky.

Others were inside an Amazon warehouse in Illinois when it collapsed.

I'm certain they had no idea this would be their last day to be alive.


Every Little Thing

Even when I don't have time to write, I can sense inspiration around me.

Like when a ferocious storm is brewing and my mind goes on overdrive thinking about all the different scenarios that might play out.

Or when my kitty-cat plays with a toy that suddenly moves by itself. Then I realize he is batting around a real live mouse.

Maybe it's a knock at the door or a simple phone call.

My mind seems to be tuned into everything.

My thoughts weave the most hilarious stories, but as luck would have it, I don't have time to write them down when I think of them.

Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky and they'll drift back to the forefront of my mind when I pick up my pen.

The point I'm trying to make is to simply pay attention.

You may be surprised how little things spark your imagination. Your muse just might go wild.

Word Prompt = Writing

This week's word is "Writing."

Writing is a way of using words to express an original idea so others understand the message you're trying to convey.

When one simply pours his heart onto the page, he finds it's not difficult to write.

For as authors we often compose poems, short stories or lyrics when we face life struggles.

It is then, when we learn how to put our feelings into words, releasing them into the universe.

There are also times, when we simply have an ideal, or we disagree with something and want to bring it to everyone's attention. We do this by jotting down simple sentences .

Inside each one of us Hubbers is a unique muse just waiting to come out and write an excellent masterpiece.

So let's pick up our pens and jot down a few lines. Who knows? Maybe this will be the one.
