Words and Wisdom

Hello and good morning

Another week has flown by and once again it's time for a new word prompt at


This week Wendy chose the prompt for us ... which is 
Words
We are sad to be saying goodbye to our lovely Wendy... This will be her last week with us, though I'm sure we will still see her join us whenever she can ... Sending you hugs and best wishes Wendy!

But it's Hello! To a new team member ... Robyn from Australia ... 
Welcome Robyn!

Words are powerful don't you think?

A page from my little book called 'A Thousand Paths To Enlightenment'
It's full of Words of wisdom...


Edited using Picmonkey

My son when he was young he used to write me little notes all the time ...


I've kept them all ... Words that touch my heart ...


He also spoke Words of wisdom ... 

I can remember one time when I was really down... someone I had once been close to now treated me with contempt ... It made me so sad ... My then 8 year old son asked me why I was so sad ... how do you explain to a child? I just told him that I didn't think (.... ) liked me anymore
My little boy put his arm around me and said "Mummy if (....) doesn't like you anymore then it's his problem ... not yours"
I have never forgotten his Words of wisdom and how much they have helped me cope when life gets tough

This prompt also caused me to remember something from way back when ...


Certificates I was awarded when I was a schoolgirl ... now yellow with age they were all about spoken Words ...

I wonder what you'll share with us this week at


We're looking forward to seeing your photos and the story behind them 

Till soon, have a lovely day

What a heartfelt, sweet post Ros... your words were pulling at my heartstrings, too... What a darling boy you have, you must be so so very proud of him... So wise at his tender age already... You're like my mum, she had kept all the little notes we wrote, too. And now I have them again... Hugs, Ira x

Awww that is so sweet of your then little son!! Aren't they just the best in comforting words? It comes from their heart because they love mummy. That is so precious.
I love your take on the prompt Ros, it's personal and meaningful.
By the way, I'm not gone entirely. I will stay on the team, only won't be joining in every week anymore. Kirsty suggested this and it's perfect for me. I'm so happy with it!
Big hugs to you xx
