claws at your being
trying to pull you under
grips around your soul
claws at your being
trying to pull you under
grips around your soul
time goes so quickly
love fiercely laugh frequently
make your moments count
Bless you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits. I have decided to take a summer break from blogging as my oldest daughter will be leaving for college in 6 weeks and I want to spend a lot more time away from my computer. Time flies………don’t let it pass you by.
See you in September……..
explore unknown worlds
stagnation of soul released
my mind is set free
Kindness reigns from high
May humans follow in suit
Spreading love to all
` wishing all a blessed Earth Day
crawling over the jagged rocks of life past
they puncture my thickened skin
blood dribbles from my palms
releasing anguish deep inside
my knees bleed
sending despair from my body
blood pours out as the rocks cut deeper
disenfecting my soul
In light of all that is going on in the world, I decided to change directions with my question of the week. My heart and soul are craving uplifing words and I am sure I am not alone.
So, my question for all of you amazingly awesome people out there is, “What is one of your favorite quotes, sayings, verses, poems, or mantras that lifts your heart and mind when you are feeling overwhelmed?”
~ Thank you so much for visiting and commenting, please take care of yourself, and each other.
One of my 2020 goals for simplychornicallyill is to review 6 books from WordPress bloggers who live with a chronic illness (or three). Currently, I have two publications on my to-review list, but I am searching for three more books to read this year. My first review of 2020 was The Shadow Boxers by Kim Johnson & Karen Anderson and you can find my thoughts here.
So, if you are a chronically ill and have published a book, or know of a WP blogger who is chronically ill, please send them a link to this post. All I need is the title of your book and I will purchase it with my own funds, give you a review on this blog, and hopefully help bring more attention to your work.
Thank you in advance for the chance to assist another chronically ill author.

With 2020 just around the corner, I have been thinking about blog posts for next year. One of my goals, besides keeping the Living Our Best Life weekly questions, is to review at least 6 books that are written by an author who is chronically ill.
Not only do I know what it is like to live with multiple chronic illnesses, I also know how much work goes into writing and self-publishing a book and the enormous amount of effort it takes to promote your publications. So next year I would like to help out my fellow spoonies and promote their work.
If you would like me to do a review of your book, that I will purchase, please leave me a message in the comment section. The book does not have to be about illness, but the author must live with at least one chronic ailment.
I look forward to reading your work!

seeps into your mind like an early morning fog,
slowly expanding into all the open trenches
finding places in the mind you didn’t know existed
enlarging to leave no room for productive thoughts
protecting its position like a vicious dog guarding it’s home
settling in like the dust in the carpet
seemingly unnoticed and determined to anchor down for the long haul
I am ready to clean house
sweeping it out, not under the rug
searching for all the hiding places
wanting to turn this into a childhood game i no longer want to play
i will find you
searching, one-by-one, the hidden rooms of my mind,
evicting the fear and pain
refilling the room with light and love and hope
slamming the door shut with a vengence
securing the deadbolt and allowing the love to expand to fill each and every room.

Some of their books may be able to be checked out at a library if you cannot afford it, and many of the books can be read for free on Amazon through KindleUnlimited .
