Stella’s comment garnered a sideways glance from Darren who all but spit out his tongue. The look said, ‘what the hell’ since they’d agreed this wasn’t the time to broach the subject. He dropped his head in resignation. That’s Stella he thought. Always the unexpected.
I have a thought-provoking question for you. What do you consider fundamental in life? Some would say a strong work ethic, others, personal growth, willingness to change, and still others, values and principles. Some would say finding your purpose or quality relationships.
It’s my son’s birthday today. For years the running joke was “when did you get old, I didn’t”! We’ve chuckled forever over this one, can’t explain why since we all know I’m that much older and thankfully still getting older and perhaps wiser too, but it stuck.
Jeremy had no doubts about his future. He was one of those fascinating people who believed it would be so and it was. He needed a job, he was confident he’d get one and he had, on his first try.
Alex asked she phone upon arrival and notify him the second she knew what was going on and she quickly tapped his picture and within seconds he answered. “You’ve arrived safely. You wouldn’t have called this quickly if you hadn’t spotted a problem. How long have you been there, five minutes?”
If Steven’s research was correct, and he knew without a doubt it was, then they could do no better than add Nancy Fairmont to their company. She was clearly a front runner and would bring huge benefits to the company in her expertise; her abilities in communication were legendary, as well as her intuitive understanding of people and relationships. She was an all-round winner.
A remnant of sadness remained in her heart. Grieving was a process that took place at its own time and pace and the process was different for every individual going through it. Some managed to maneuver through fairly quickly, with but a few remnants remaining behind.
When someone pays you a sincere compliment, are you able to accept it? Or do you brush it off? I’ve noticed a number of people who do that. If your the person giving the compliment, isn’t it like a slap in the face when your statement isn’t acknowledged?
I’m not sure about you, but when times are difficult, problems arise, there are issues to deal with and we sometimes feel overwhelmed and over our head, I find it easier to lighten the mood with levity – a joke, a funny meme, a humourous moment in time.
Since I’m retired, long weekends mean little in one sense, for me at least. Life continues on as usual to a degree and doesn’t change my lifestyle overmuch. The pleasurable part of a long weekend is spending relaxed downtime with family. So to some degree, I am touched by them in that there is a more languid feel about them.
Amy could attest the truth of Judy’s words for she’d been present when they were spoken. The problem was she wasn’t sure anyone would believe her since she was the office jokester and they all knew it. She was concerned she might make the situation worse for Judy instead of better.
When this word came up, there were several topics that came to mind. The current political landscape (worldwide but the US in particular) and let’s face it, the President of the USA has behaved contentiously and has managed to polarise the country in a way not seen in years.
https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/08/19/your-daily-word-prompt-outlast-august-19-2019/ I’ve chatted about architecture on occasion and my love of many types designs and structures. Norman Foster once said, “Quality is an attitude of the mind.” He preferred “simplicity” of design while Frank Lloyd Write’s architecture was “organic”.
