Share Your World – 2016 Week 9 Feb 29, 2016


I’m participating this week in Share Your World – 2016 Week 9 where you can learn how bananas I really am. Here are my answers to the questions…


  Have you done something you truly want to do today?

Yes. I took the whole day and did not check my email or blog until now and it is about 7 pm central time. It was really nice to have a full day with nothing to do except watch TV and read a book and nap.

What can you help the world with?

I hope that my blogs are inspirational and educational to those that read them. I enjoy writing them and the topics are varied for each blog. For example, Susan’s Devotional Journal is a Christian Devotional and Bible Study Blog and Susan’s Creative Writing and Poetry Blog is my blog where I do most of my poetry and my flash fiction and short stories. Those are just two of my four blogs. If you haven’t checked out the other two, you can find them listed under Pages.

If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..?

I would have to say a banana. I love bananas and would eat them everyday if they were available. Of course, I know they are a fattening fruit but who cares. They are delicious and I always give the last bite to Guinness, my dog. He is as addicted to them as I am.

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?

My quotes change regularly, but today, these three are my favorites:

“Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul.”

Meg Rosoff

“The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.”

Maya Angelou

“When I began to listen to poetry, it’s when I began to listen to the stones, and I began to listen to what the clouds had to say, and I began to listen to others. And I think, most importantly for all of us, then you begin to learn to listen to the soul, the soul of yourself in here, which is also the soul of everyone else.”

Joy Harjo

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am very grateful that my daughter is doing so much better physically and mentally. I am grateful that my depressed mood and my pain from my fibromyalgia are starting to improve also.

What I am looking forward to this week is that the pain from my fibromyalgia and the depression from my financial situation continue to improve.
