Welcome to December 26, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC).
Today’s word is “mindful.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.
Well, last week I lost the kitty. During that 5 days without him, the world kept spinning, the world didn’t stop, Christmas didn’t stop and I didn’t stop getting older because Travie was gone. There were a few people who kept apoligising too me because they thought their pain was less than mine. It kept me mindful, that everyone’s pain is valid, even when you are going through pain yourself. Christmas is a hard time of year, for a lot of people. It was a good lesson, that reMINDed me, that I am not the only here, living. It doesn’t mean don’t care of yourself and your pain, just a reMINDer, that other people have pain too.
