Need help quick! My daughter is getting married on July 3 and has asked me to read something at the ceremony.

It was only then, as I went through my portfolio, that I realized I don’t have anything appropriate for the occasion! I guess don’t write about romantic love. I almost never have. Weird.

Does anyone have a really good piece to recommend that I can read?

Or better yet a prompt to help me maybe pick a direction and write something of my own. I don’t know where to start and I don’t know if I have it in me to write it in time

Uh...I write poems about dogs and dust bunnies. I don't think that would work for you.

I don't know for sure, but I feel compelled to refer you to Choconut ~ Edit, Edit, Edit 's port. I would look around for you, but I'm up against some deadlines myself and I'm not 100% sure what you are looking for.
If you're going to do a speech, I like the idea of sharing a memory or two of your daughter that might not be well known to everyone attending but highlights her personality in a way that they'll go 'Oh, that's classic [insert name here]'.

Sharing your favourite piece of advice is always nice. Who was it that wrote a lovely piece about how their mother always complimented strangers? Was that you? If it was, that's a nice piece of advice to share as they start their life together, and also a lovely way to honour your mother. If not, it could be funny little things like a recipe you epically screwed up once that she'll remember (don't forget to soak the raisins when making the CHristmas pudding!) or whatever, or making sure to put each other's birthdays and anniversaries into their Google calendars so they don't forget them, or it could sweet or important advice.

Then welcome her spouse to the family, either simply or by sharing a funny memory about your first impressions of him.

Best of luck!
Because it’s been so long between visits I’m not sure who is still around. So I am tagging all of my friends that I have let down and sorely neglected.

I really feel inspired to start volunteering and I’m sure I’ll come across some great family stories. Finally I have found the next step in the road I want to take. So, even though I’ve said it 1 million times I will be coming back. I just need to get my passion back.

Aundria!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello my dear friend! It is wonderful to see you!
"Roots & Wings Contest //OPEN 6/1/22 it currently open, it must have been calling to you. If you would like to judge a round...? Drop me an email.
So good to hear from you! *Heart*
Once again I am checking in to say hello to everyone. I keep meaning to get back to writing and I just never seem do it.
But my last child is leaving home next year and I now have 40 years of nothing on my daily schedule.

With all this time on my hands I’ve decided to do volunteering for hospice care. It’s a great way to find life stories for people who would otherwise not have the time or ability to record them. And besides I really need friends. I am still incredibly lonely.

I have written in the past a little about what I want to do with my writing and I feel like this will get me another step closer. In fact I wrote a short essay on it a long time ago before I really had an idea of what to do with it

Wow...are you finally back here in the site Aundria? I haven't seen you for a very long time.
Right? I have just lost my motivation and lost my way I think. Not to mention my laptop start glitching out so it would have been hard for me to upload anything new anyway. But hopefully my muse will kick in when II start volunteering and getting out of the house
I see. That's sad but it's okay. I hope everything goes well for you now. I'm glad to see you around.
Happy Anniversary! Have a great day.
HAPPY WDC ANNIVERSARY!

Help! As I mentioned earlier my mother passed away last week. I am speaking at her funeral on Friday and it will be so difficult to do her justice.

Ironically, I wrote this piece about her a few years ago but never dreamed I'd be reading it at her funeral. I have edited it again and made several changes but am not sure if it flows right.

I would be forever grateful if someone would read it through for me for content and errors. I don't want to stammer as I read.

Thank you so much for your friendship over the years. It means a lot to me.

Have left a review for you. *Heart*
I am so sorry for your loss! I just finished reading it and I have no edits whatsoever. It flows beautifully and is a full journey from start to finish. May her beautiful soul watch over you and your family and guard you as you pass her wisdom along.
Angels in my Ear This is beautiful! So full of love and appreciation with a bit of humor...I loved it!

I saw a couple of typos that won't matter if you are giving it orally. I saw one spot to make a bit of humor work even better (at least in my opinion). I don't know if I am too late (I picked a lousy time to take a break from WdC), but I will send that bit of information to you.
Edited
My mother died yesterday. Although she had Covid and had been in and out of the hospital it was still a shock. She had a cardiac arrest during the few moments she was home by herself. It was literally only 10 minutes. She had been so upbeat and chipper and it seemed the worst was past us.

But when you look back on the last few weeks, as you always do, you can see the preparations she was making and the tying of loose ends. There are 24 of us in my family including 5 daughters and our children. In the past week or two she has seen or heard from everyone of them. My sisters and father were all around her as she floated away.

I truly have a new angel in my ear. But she had tidied before I knew it. Hold your loved ones close this season. Your family, no matter your relationship status are your angels on earth

My condolences. Death is always a shock, even if expected. Sending you healing thoughts. *Butterflyv*
I'm so sorry, Aundria. I lost my Dad in April. It wasn't to COVID, but because of that cursed virus, we weren't able to gather and be with Mom when she needed her family the most.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers my friends. A while back I wrote a piece about my mother and the lessons she taught me. Now that she’s gone it needs some revision and a little more detail. I plan to read it at her funeral next week. I’d love it if you took a look at it and let me know if you have any comments or her revisions you think would be helpful
