Use Your Words-December 2014

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.

My words are: Thankful ~ Beautiful ~ Wonderful ~ I am ~ Celebrate ~ Positive

They were submitted by:

Sorry that this isn't part 2 of my Talking Turkey post, but I think these words wouldn't have been used to their full potential if I had made them part of that story. Maybe next month will give me the opportunity to continue the story!

My husband and I will celebrate 20 years of marriage this month. My husband has been wonderful and supportive over the years. We've produced and are raising two beautiful children that I cherish.

I am thankful that my mother made it through major surgery (splenectomy due to lymphoma) two weeks ago and I am positive that she is on the road to recovery.
