I-Am- Me
Words straight from the heart - to be me, for better or for worse. We have to live by our principles and to do the necessary to be better everyday.
We will fight our battles and trying not to admit defeat even when the going gets tough.
Good write and well expressed. Congrats on being the 1st prize winner (still wondering what prize that was awarded, smiles).
Cheerio, hugs and lots of luv, GS Ritchie. :))

    The poem was Day No and mean it. That win blew my mind it has been years since I won a contest.
    Hugs and kisses back to you.
    Have blessed and safe week end.

    Dearest GM,

    When you write from the heart and meant every word that was written closed to heart, you do a pretty good job, smiles.
    Life is what we make of it and if we believe it is good and fine then no matter what happens, we refuse to raise the white handkerchief, :)).
    Have a great day and so glad you won the prize.
    Have a smiling and grateful day which the Lord has given us and for everything that happens, He knows why.
    Cheerio, lots of hugs and luving smiles, GS Ritchie. :))

Say No and mean it!
Oh, misscookie, this is *SO* true! Sometimes to save one's sanity and also keep one's reserve for the ones we love and who truly depend on us, we've got to say "No." So important to remember. And your poems always rhyme. I love that.

Say No and mean it!
Like you, I always said yes, and ended up resenting it. So, I followed that same advice, said no more often, and I was treated better. I love the boldness of your poem, misscookie. It just tells it how it is and gives great advice in the bargain. This was the bit that was pivotal to your poem:Your vocabulary has a new word NO, it's now your time
Believe me, it will truly blow their mind. Great stuff; you have my vote.

Say No and mean it!
Hi Grandma

What a fantastic entry for the contest. Excellent rhythm, rhyme and near rhyme.
Fantastic artwork. Deep and insightful phrasing with personal reference. I always love your wisdom and the philosophy you live by ... such a process of 'live and learn'. Powerful conclusion ....... you're quite right ... say NO and mean it.


"No one can control me any more
Thank you, thank you Lord.
Those two letters truly changed my life
Just say No and mean it, take my advice" ...... absolutely great advice.

I wish I had a six for this one Grandma. I wish you the best of luck. I consider this to be a contender for highest placement. Hugs - Z xoxooxxoxoxoxoox

    Hi Grandma ... you are a sweet-heart. Sorry behind ... I'll catch up with you soon. I think you may have won the contest ... I hope so. Hugs - Z xoxoxo

reply by the author on 21-Mar-2014
    Hi sweet heart.
    It blew my mind this morning when I found out I won the contest. It truly made my day. It's been a few years since that happen.
    It made me feel as if my writing is not in vain.

reply by Lovinia on 21-Mar-2014
    Congratulations. I'm so thrilled for you. Your poem is exceptional and well deserved the win. Make sure your bask in the glory. I'm so pleased I spotted it and managed to vote for you. Well done ... you had some fierce opposition. Your writing is not in vein whether it wins awards or not. Many use your wisdom and insight and it makes a difference to our lives. Even the joy you give us with your delight in Madison's exploits manages to lift me up when I'm down and always put a smile on my face. I think puting a smile on a reader's face is a valuable legacy. Your spiritual devotion keeps me on the right path (even thoughI wander off from time to time :))) Great work Grandma. Love & huge hugs - Z XOXOXOX


reply by the author on 22-Mar-2014
    Thank you for your support through out the years and most of all your friendship and love. Even I wander off at times we are only human the key word is to get back on track.
    thank you again.
    kisses and hugs from Grandma Cookie

reply by Lovinia on 22-Mar-2014
    So true. It would be nice to run on an even keel for a bit. Ahh ... no rest for the wicked. LOL

    I had Chinese with two of my boys tonight and one of them has a girlfriend. I rarely get to se them on a Saturday night, they are usually out with their friends. They are both broke at the moment, one bought a queen size bed and they both are still at university and only part-time jobs. So they scored a treat to dinner out.

    The youngest one has a pork belly marinating and is doing the cooking for Sunday lunch and Nick is doing stuffed vegetables so I have the day off from cooking.

    Now I've whet your appetite ... I'll have a bite of everything for you. :))
    I made a bread and butter jam pudding ... though I suspect they would all have preferred apple pie. Hmm I should have put apple in the pudding. Perhaps I'll make apple sauce.

    I'm so pleased we are friends Grandma, I've always enjoyed our chats when we can, and also your support and encouragement, for my work and my personal life ... you're a wonderful friend and highly respected and valued.

    Spend those winnings and have a blast!!!! LOL love and hugs - Lovi xoxoox

reply by the author on 22-Mar-2014
    MMMM that sounds so delightful I think I'll oder something today.
    And thanks for taking a bite for me I'll do the same, don't know what I'll get yet. Oh you funny gal I wish they would give me real winning money..LOL

I'd have to agree "No" can bring about a very positive attitude, when someone doesn't say it enough. Learning to say "No" can do wonders for one's personal health.

Good luck!

Misscookie,
What an excellent message within your contest entry! I can relate to this on a very personal level, but I think many have been in this position, not recognizing their 'inalienable rights' but so used to catering to others at the cost of their own health, safety, peace of mind, respect etc. Beautiful granddaughter, she can learn some really important life strategies through you!
Jenny

My sister always says, "no is a complete sentence"... Your poem conveys this same idea. We need to say No when that is how we feel. Thanks for sharing that saying yes when we mean no will eventually be our demise.

Your poem may be one of the most serious I've read for this contest, expressing the deeper consequences of saying "yes" or "no" . . . plus the picture of your grandchild, who appears to be at the age where saying "no" can make a profound difference in her future . . . this total package combines to deliver your message with impact. Good luck in the contest.
