Amy’s I’m Back World!

A full month fast from WordPress was hard y’all. I especially missed reading your stuff and hearing your daily thoughts on the things of God and whatever else has been on your minds. A fast though, is what was needed to pull away from time stealers and better prepare myself for the start of school and activities the kids and I are in. We started school last week. We are doing a 4 day week and I am hopeful it will be a good school year. Abigail and I are taking Spanish, we’re just waiting on one more book to arrive. I took it in school, so I’m hoping to remember things as I go. We shall see! Lol

I mentioned in my last post briefly that I have decided to write my memoir. I thought if you write a full account of your life it’s your autobiography…but that’s for famous people! I also thought a memoir was an account of a single event in one’s life but I am not certain. Anyways I’ve decided to write a memoir starting from early memories and on. I believe I cannot truly describe my mistakes and actions without giving the background of where I came from that led me to those mistakes. And 9nce I’ve told my story I will be able to share of God’s endless mercy that He has shown me. I have already wrote about 16,000 words and have so much more to go.

For those of you who know my story, a question ❓❓ for ya. What do you think it would be like if I included my poems in the book? Like the poems that coincide with my past and inserting them during those times as I write? I’ve thought about it and think a few here and there would be okay. Maybe not one on every page, but then I think, who really reads and likes poetry? Do I run the risk of losing the audience’s attention? Feel free to comment.

Every one is feeling better here. Abigail has finished the meds for Lyme’s and is trying to grow up too fast! My husband is over Covid and we are all doing well.

A throw I made for my Aunt. Think of a sunflower 🌻
Did another for a very close kind friend, hey Mandy! This is with velvet yarn
I made this one for me! Called a mandala throw. I used striped yarn. I made this during our quarantine…

The new birthday bike that got lost on a FedEx truck, went back to the shipper and the shipper would not resend it. We had to reorder from a different source and FedEx got it here but late. She was a very good sport about it. It’s called Little Mismatched Bike

I photo-bombed this pic, my friend was trying to take of a storm rolling in.

  1. Hi Amy, I’m glad to see you back and all is well. That picture of the cake had my mouth watering (just saying!). The poems, how about one per chapter? Just a thought. Loved all the pictures. It looks like you are a β€œthrow” machine. In our younger years my wife used to make quite a few of them, we see them now in pictures from all of our five grown up children. Amazing the amount of work that goes into those! God’s grace, peace and blessings to you and yours!

  2. Include the poems. Readers can always choose whether to read or skip them. Sometimes poetry really moves me, and sometimes it doesn’t. But I can go back and read when I’m in the spiritual mood. πŸ™‚

      1. Doing well under the circumstances. The fistula that makes kidney dialysis work a lot better did not grow properly, so the surgeon is getting images a week from now and may do another surgery afterwards. I think she is more frustrated than not feeling well, but, pardon the pun, but dialysis is draining regardless.

  3. I expect that if anyone reading your book doesn’t care for poetry, it would be easy for them to just skip over it. But if you think poetry within the story might turn some people off, you could have it in a separate section at the end of the book, and footnotes within the story referring the reader to the poem that was written at that particular time. Just a thought. (A couple of my books have “appendices.”)

  4. I’m so glad you’re all doing well! Your throws are gorgeous. And I love the photo bomb photo! 😁 I think adding a few poems into your book would be a great idea. They’re part of your story and your healing process. Best of luck with your book!
