A is for Arthritis. #AtoZChallenge

4/01/17

A is for arthritis.

It will not stop me,

Only delay me

I will not bow to it,

Yet I know it’s there;

It sidetracked me long enough.

It won’t be easy,

But I have my Army,

And I won’t cave in.

 

  • “Army” could also be read as “Advil.” 🙂

***Note:  I wasn’t going to do this.  Because of my arthritis.  Therefore, in rebellion, I’ll start my challenge by writing about arthritis.  Take that!  I also wasn’t going to do this because of my many other writing projects; because of my busy full-time job, my family requirements, volunteer commitments, blah, blah, blah.  Let’s face it.  I am a writer.  My students have been asking me about that a lot as the word seems to be going around.   I want to inspire them to do an alphabet journal and I will share some of my A-Z entries to inspire them.  Can anyone think of a better reason to rebel against my aches and my fatigue? I was sure I could not follow the rules and may not keep up with responding to others’ blogs.  We will see; one can only try, right?  I might as well let my mind take the helm!

The theme for my blog is “Who I am.” Yes, it’s wide open.  It will include little tidbits about me, poems I’ll share, and stories.  I hope you don’t think I’m a cheat.  I am a little bit of a rebel, though.  Just ask my yoga instructors. 🙂  As I said, one can only try, right?  Let’s do this!
