‘Once upon a time’
Stories galore intro line

Dysfunctional childhood
Thought twas bad, not good

Santa forgot me every year
Disappointment, followed by tears

When became a wife, then mother
Vowed thy children would ne’er suffer

Pangs Christmas view no tree nor presents
Parental role, constant belief God omnipresence

Youngster forever  prayed for fashionista doll

Today’s prompt:  “on your/my plate”
Although not a believer in wasting food, I disagreed
with a back-in-the-day mealtime rule often followed in
many households.
‘Finish everything on your plate‘.
Why?
Similar to adults, children’s appetites differ on a daily basis.
Common sense . . .
Place a small portion of each food item on the child’s
plate. Allow them to ask for seconds.
If the child doesn’t finish their meal, then no dessert after
dinner.
World hunger was often an excuse used to make a child feel
guilty.
In later years a visit to a one-price dine-in restaurant left me
near state of shock.
Why?
I watched as young children accessed the buffet table and filled their
plates sky high with food.
Sadly, unable to eat this amount of food or a dislike of their selections
the plate soon met with the trash.
Perhaps the parents of these children should have enforced that rule
of ‘finish everything on your plate‘.

SoCS ~ November 12th

Today’s prompt: starts with or contains ‘cel’ . . .

When someone asks you about your hobbies, what’s the correct response?
Does one list them in alphabetical order or rather preference of enjoyment?
Should a person include a list of all the hobbies participated throughout their lifetime?
Would it be better to choose three crafts from the present time you have WIPs?
It can be a quandary if the person is fairly private in life with no desire to brag about
all their accomplishments.
I find myself amid others in the above category of been there done that with no future
intentions to every attempt certain crafts again.
For me tis easier to devise a short list of basics with subcategories.
1. Blogging and creating poems (syllabic and rhyme)
2. Crocheting (trying out new stitches on YouTube channels) yet to find the correct one.
3. Reading books on topics geared to my miscellaneous interests >> often one choice
has little in common with another.

One woman in a group I joined contributes excellent articles from which I’m gaining
knowledge.
Earlier this week I wrote a post about the benefits of doing a crossword puzzle each
day and how the subconscious mind works to solve clues when one is busy during the
day completing other tasks.
This morn was day #4 and after finishing the majority of the puzzle I reverted back
to the previous ones and quite surprised what I’d read in the article actually had
merit of truth.

Another submission by the same group member contained a list of 50 tips on
how to improve one’s life and ward off negativity.

Unable to print it out I took notes miscellaneous topics >> some relate to another
while some are totally different in nature. 

I think I have my work cut out for me as I proceed to move forward to lead
happier days during the last chapter of life.
