My 1st Attempt

This is my first attempt at poetry. I have been inspired by my blog friends V and Christina to try and be more creative. I wanted to give my husband a gift from my heart and this was certainly a way I could do it. I'm stepping out of my box but it has been so enlightening. Dave was so touched! I started going into "the ugly cry" as he read it. I realized writing my feelings in such away touched his heart and my soul. He still got the MP3 player, but my poem he put up on his wall at work...too cool! Now I get why my kids loved when I displayed their artwork in frames around the house :)

Thank you Christina and V, this beats tv anyday!

Chris said...

That is so awesome. If you had the 'ugly' cry, then it must have been good! I think it was beautiful. You did good!

Oh, good, we can finally comment. We don't know why we have so much trouble getting in.
Anyway, we enjoyed your first effort. Plainly spoken and heartfelt. Keep on fighting the good fight, Tammy. We're there with you.

What a great poem, and even better, what a great gift!

Tammy, I am very proud of your resolve to give yourself over to your creative life. Have you ever read Women Who Run With the Wolves? If you haven't, you truly must. That is a life-changing book. Also Brenda Ueland's IF YOU WANT TO WRITE. I like your poem. It is a precious gift you gave your husband--and yourself.
