365 Creativity Project-Day 334

Moments Passing

The clock,
The calendar,
The hours, the days move on,
Taking us forward into our
Futures unfolding quickly before each
Of us in unending array
Of strange situations
That surprise us
In time

I am grateful:

1.   I woke up early this morning.
2.   We have free Showtime for three months.
3.   My replacement book came from Amazon.
4.   We had soup and salad for supper.
5.   God loves me extravagantly and completely.

It has been a quiet day here. I hope your Saturday has been filled with joy. Now I encourage you to use your creativity to make something wonderful to share with the world. You can do this if you only make the effort.

As a prompt, use the words: clock, calendar, hours, days; in a poem, story, or journal entry. I know you can create something even better than I did, if you will try. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

I am so grateful you took time to visit my blog. If you enjoyed Chronicles, consider subscribing to the blog. I would welcome your thoughts, suggestions, or criticism, so please leave a comment.

    JoAnn….I want you to know that I read all your entries but don’t respond to many….I always love what you say and your photos are really good.

    I just wanted to add that I switched to Directv today as Dish and Fox are in another dispute so Fox isn’t shown in this area….I have to watch American Idol starting in January so I changed plus it is way cheaper….$45 compared to close to $100,.

    The book The Help and the movie which I own are so, so fantastic….my favorite book at the moment!!!! very interesting social commentary from the black community perspective. Does your life relate to any of the scenes?

    Take care…

      Kathi, thank you so much for reading along. I never know who is following.

      DirecTv has been fairly good to us. It is a bit expensive, but Mom gets a lot of use out of it. I am not much of a television person.

      Growing up poor, and living that way, my experience bears little resemblance to the lives portrayed in the movie, The Help.

    what I meant was does your life relate from being raised in the south???

      I think I answered in the other comment. Life in the South is different when you are poor. My family has never had the sort of privilege shown in The Help. No servants… My Dad was a diesel mechanic and my Mom a housewife.
