sweet momentsA while back… in January 2015 when I wrote my very first One Word Blog LinkUp post, it was about the word Again. It’s one of those little words that we use all the time in our speech and it has all sorts of different meanings. Highlighting some of its many meanings made for an easy post to write.

The word prompts for this week’s One Word linkup are Soon or Sweet. I had a hard time choosing one to focus on because I love both of them and could very easily write about either one … and so for a change, I think I will.  :)

fishing joke


A good ol’ boy won a bass boat in a raffle drawing.

He brings it home. His wife looks at him and says, “What you gonna do with that. There ain’t no water deep enough to float a boat within 100 miles of here.”

The good ‘ol boy replies, “I won it and I’m a-gonna keep it.”

His brother comes over to visit several days later. He sees his sister-in-law and asks her where his brother is.

“He’s out there in his bass boat,” she replies pointing to the field behind the house.

The brother heads out behind the house and sees his brother in the middle of a big field sitting in a bass boat with a fishing rod in his hand. He yells out to him, “What are you doin’?”

“I’m fishin,” replies his brother. “What does it look like I’m a doin’?”

The visiting brother rolls his eyes and yells, “You know, it’s people like you who give Rednecks a bad name. Makin’ everyone think we’re stupid. If I could swim, I’d come out there and whoop your butt!”

gratitudeI’ve been toying with the idea of joining the Ten Things of Thankful (#10Thankful) hub for quite some time now … and Lizzi’s fantastic  #1000Speak post and wonderful reply to my comment have finally given me the push off the cliff of hesitation that I needed to do it.  :)

I love gratitude and feeling thankful. I love people who love gratitude and feeling thankful. So here I am on week 101 of TTofT for the very first time. I’m very happy to be here and know that I will thoroughly enjoy this weekly exercise and connecting with all of you happy, thankful writers. Thankful is something I definitely need to be more mindful of each week. Who doesn’t, right? A Ten Things of Thankful post should help me do just that.  :)

So let’s get to it…

compassionThe One Word Blog LinkUp word prompts for this week are Voices or Fast. I’m choosing Voices – because it’s the perfect choice for me to make today.

Today is the 20th of the month … and that means that today is the day of the month when 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion (of which I am happily included). #1000Speak currently has a membership of 1,656 people. We are  bloggers/writers/videographers etc. all devoted to the cause of encouraging Compassion. It’s something we feel very passionate about. Compassion for ourself and others. Compassion in every walk of life. We want to inspire and encourage more use of it. We want to help change and improve the world we live in.

1000 Voices Speak for Compassion (#1000Speak) began in January 2015. Its founders were Lizzi Rogers of Considerings: Life in Silver Linings and Yvonne Spence of Yvonne Spence: Writing With Mindfulness. Here is how it came into being (taken from my post The Magic of Enthusiasm):
