3TC Pl 119

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You
don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where
your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing!

Today’s prompt: hug, courage, paprika


I hug my pillow tightly

I try to be courageous

and have courage but I am so scared

I awoke from a nightmare

I stare

Open mouthed

Heart racing

Arms flailing

Anxiety rising

Then, all of a sudden

My dog comes to greet me

His soft fur feels warm and cosy

I nestle into his soft fur

My head resting on his neck

All thoughts of nightmares gone

For a fleeting moment

I have a responsibility to nitro

I need to see that he’s ok

This keeps me distracted

Until the feelings disapate

And once again

I feel ok

and can start my day

Feeling happy and content

My dog makes me smile!

I wish I could take proper photos of my dog! On my own I mean! Being blind sucks sometimes. I want to take beautiful pics of Nitro! He’s so damn cute! I just gave him a treat. I gave him an apple. He chomped his way through it in no time. He absolutely loves apples. He stood next to me as I opened the refridgerator and took it out, then as I was taking off the stem he was sniffing and sniffing as if I wasn’t giving it to him! When I did give it to him he ran off with it! Lol. I am on a group on facebook called dogs make me smile, which is where I took the title of this post. Anyway on the group people post in pics of their pets, its a cool group. I wish I could post some in too! I have to rely on others to be able to take nice photos of nitro though! Boo! Sometimes its hard to get him in a good pose! He’s camera shy! Lol.

He gave me a surprise!

Nitro is so cute! He gave me a big surprise! I was going to make a cup of tea, and there he was, all sprawled out in the hallway, I hadn’t been sure where I’d find him, he had been on my bed, but he jumped off. He got too hot. He’s so funny. There he was, and as soon as I got up, he started wagging that tail. Oh his tail, thumping hard on the floor, its so damn cute! He’s such a cutie!
I love that big monsterdoodle! And he’s not even a doodle! I just call him that hahaha!
I love nice surprises!

Weekly smile, May 27th 2019

What made me smile this week?
Well, the fact that I was so productive in therapy, and did so much healing work. The fact that my new electric shower is almost finished, I cant wait to have that first hot shower and enjoy that. The fact that my mom came over yesterday and helped me out around the house. Love my mom! The nice weather, its been warm and dry here all week! My dog, he never fails to make me smile! The fact that I was able to arrange for someone to cover my PA hours, so I am not left with no one!


Feeling overwhelmed

Eyes fill
Tears spill
Onto my blanket
Feel Nitro there
Call him near
Pat him, as I feel the fear
Fear builds
My insides feel like lead
I have a pain in my head
Wrap up warm
I can survive this storm
Tomorrow, things will be normal again

Just wrote this as I am feeling incredibly sad and alone and my body is tense, I feel full of fear and trepidation, I’m starting to have flashbacks again, so I’m snuggling nitro and drinking a coffee and trying to watch a little tv.

Pet therapy

the hot liquid
burns as it goes down my throat
All I feel is
burning, and I imagine
My feelings
Disapating and disappearing
Into the hot liquid
Feelings of fear, sadness, loneliness
All evaporating
Then all of a sudden
My big cute lab
Puts his wet nose
In my hand
Jolts me back to reality
He wants out
And he cant hold on
Puppies cant hold it
When he has to go he has to go
So slowly I rise
From my bed
Where I’ve been sitting
time to go out
He obediently follows me
I let him outside
Smell the fresh air
Then again, all of a sudden
I realise
I’m no longer thinking
About fear, sadness or loneliness
Its funny what some pet therapy can do for you
Nitro, nitro
come on boy
He bounces in again
I Pat him on the head
As he goes back and lies on his bed
