Wish Me Luck..

This weekend I have been mostly writing to web sites / search engines / blog sites / magazines / publications in the hope of an opportunity to write a short article in relation to either Writing and Poetry or a more personal article about Life, My Children and Osteogenesis Imperfector (Brittle Bone Disease)  Obviously I wont receive any payment (just yet) and I’m well aware that these sites probably get bombarded with stuff but I am very optimistic plus I’m gathering knowledge and learning from the experience.

The hope of being given a chance to contribute a written piece to be published no matter how minor it may be is spurring me on. My aim is to hopefully make this into a part time career but it’s early days yet.  

I would be extremely grateful if anyone has any Information regarding websites / blogs / magazines that look for article writers and that are relevant to the subject matter above.  (There are various other topics that I would like to write about but for now I prefer to stick with the subjects that I feel most confident in)  

Sending best wishes to you all

I Stood By Your Bed..


I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.

I whispered to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, you were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me.

I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I’m not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my hand on you, I smiled and said “it’s me.”

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It’s possible for me to be so near you every day.
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew … in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
and say “goodnight, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out … then come home to be with me.

New Blog

If you have a spare minute or two please take a look at my second blog that  I am creating.

It is very different to this one. I have taken the decision to open up a little more and reveal another side to me that involves my home and family life.

It is for an extremely good cause that is very close to my heart. I am using it to help raise awareness for the Brittle Bone Society & the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation. My youngest son has the condition and at present we are waiting a diagnosis for our daughter.

Although still in the early stages with regards to its content I believe it’s worth a peek ..

I’ll be updating this blog in the next day or so.  I have  poems in the pipeline.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the continued support and inspiring comments that I have received over the past few months. I look forward to visiting all your blogs and I apologise for sometimes not having the time to comment.

My free time Is quite limited.   A Saturday night when the children have gone to bed is when I get to  read blogs, be creative and update my blog. I do tend to get carried away though the time is now 8.30am Sunday and not a wink of sleep have I had.  **yawn** (the children are beginning to stir they’ve slept in a little longer than usual this morning giving me time to finish.    #Happy Days..

My ‘ME’ time is so precious, I would go crazy without it! :)   :)   I can always  sleep tonight!… xx  :)
