What Could go Wrong?

FREE WRITING

The whole family was on a cruise to go to Mexico... again. After the first trip, I was hesitant to go on a second. It was only three days so I thought, what could go wrong? Apparently a lot more than I thought. It was Sunday afternoon and we had just gotten back on the boat after a long day in Mexico. So far so good... or so I thought. I went and decided to hang out with my friends...

Late Night Thoughts

FREE WRITING

Do you ever have those late night conversations that later lead into late night thoughts? I do and it's not fun. I could be going all good and them BAM! It hits you... just a wave of thoughts as your lying in bed trying to sleep. Suddenly your tossing and turning and it seems as though you can't even close your eyes without your thoughts intensifying. You toss from side to side trying to make it go away and then...

It was a really lovely thing to read especially since now and days you don't really see a lot of people that care about others and it just makes those who do that much more special!

Rodeo

PROMPT: Microphone

Off in the distance, I hear the screams and yells of the crowd. The cheering as the cowboys get out there and ride bulls to entertain them. I can hear the announcers hyping up the crowd at every second. The cheers and laughter of them laughing at our rodeo clown. But closest to me is my horse. The soft breathing and the squeak of my saddle as we walk, The sound of hooves underneath me... That's a sound that can't...

It was anything but silent, in the background all I could hear was screaming and cheering. I heard my name, it was my chance to go out there and show them what we had. I talked to her and calmed her down before we went out, "It's just you and me out there girly, I know you got this, do your job and I''ll try my best to do mine." It was on, we were out there and my mind...

What Makes Me Happy

  1. My Horse- She is the best thing that has ever happened to me! She has changed me for the better and I couldn't ask for anything else.
  2. Rodeo- Rodeo is such a fun sport and the people in it are just overall great people. People in rodeo are more than friends, they're family and I know I can always turn to them if I need to.
  3. Food- I've never seen a person that isn't made happy by food!
  4. Cooking- Cooking...

    It wasn't long 'till I had to go, in about 30 seconds there would be a knock on my door to drag me away from my family. For now I'll stay here until they barge in. "You don't want your family to see you like this" they yelled at me. "That's why they won't" I whispered back. My daughter dropped to the floor, then my wife; the Botulinum had worked. I grabbed my bag and headed out the door. How...
