Freedom of Expression. Tag! Attitude!

Good morning everyone, I hope you’ve had a good start to your day ;O) Yesterday, the lovely Richa, creator of fun and inspiring iScriblr, nominated me for the Freedom of Expression challenge; how could I say no to that! This is a first for me so I’m very excited and a little nervous (really hoping I’ve understood the rules!). At the end of the post I’ll be nominating 3 other bloggers who I really respect and admire and I hope that they’ll pick up the challenge. Here we go guys:

“I really hate to have to say this to you but your attitude sucks!”

The anger and disappointment in her voice was more than clear

“What do you know? You don’t know what it feels like to be me!”

She knew she was being unfair but stubbornness kept her going

“No, you’re right, I don’t, but I do love you, I just want what’s best”

She was still angry but trying hard to diffuse the situation

“If you want what’s best, you’ll just accept that I’m getting married”

The tears were coming, she was frustrated and hurt

“I can’t! He’s just not right for you. Please don’t do this to me”

Pleading now, she was desperate for understanding

“This is not about you. I love him and I want to be happy”

Defiant again, she turns away, back straight and rigid

“But he doesn’t love you………not in the same way, you know that”

She knew the words were almost cruel but they had to be said

“No, I know it’s not in the same way but I really need him”

Defiance gone she is smaller, more vulnerable, lost

“You don’t need him, you’ve got me……..Mum…..please”

She opens her arms, tears streaming, eyes begging

“He’ll never replace your Dad, you know that, but I’m lonely”

They embrace gently with mixed attitudes of hope and despair……

I am now passing the baton over to 3 wonderful bloggers:

Wendi at simplychronicallyill as, despite having to deal with many problems of her own she is unfailing kind, considerate of others and a real inspiration

Billy Mac at goodtobealivetoday because he is funny and charming and fighting his own battles on a daily basis

Darren at artyplantsman because he is a kind a gentle soul who made me feel truly welcome when I first became part of the WP family.

These guys really inspire me and I hope that they’ll do the same for you.
