      Thanks John for sharing Brenda's response to her own word prompt week 36. I enjoyed reading all the poems. Fake it till you make it is a good theory. The quotes are meaningful too.

      Thank you John, for sharing Brenda's wonderful word prompt response on 'strength '.
      Brenda--I liked the many forms of strength, which you have mentioned in your well expressed poems. Great work, as always.
      I am not getting email notifications regularly, but somehow this appeared on my feed.
      Thank you for sharing--John and Brenda

        Chitrangada, I am glad my sharing this article allowed you to view it. The feed seems to be very inconsistent lately and not everything is appearing, the same with email notifications.

        Thank you.

        Welcome to the club...we are all having problems with notifications not showing up.

        I'm glad John posted this and you saw it on the newsfeed.

        I am glad you liked these ones.

        Have a blessed Sunday.

    I'm glad you think they are good examples.

    Strength is different for all of us.

    I liked your poetry in several forms based on your own word prompt, "Strength." They are lovely to read and give us insights into our life. Thank you for the beautiful share, Brenda.

    I enjoyed reading Brenda's response to the word prompt, 'Strength'.
    I liked the idea of faking strength: 'we fake it til we make it.'
    I enjoyed reading all of the poems as well as the quotes.

    Thank you for sharing this, John. I'm not sure why Brenda's article didn't appear in my feed and why I didn't receive an email notification. That's weird. My feed often gets frozen. Nothing seems to shuffle. I have no clue why.

    Happy weekend!

    Blessings to you and Bredz. smile

      Faking it until we make it...
      This works on so many different levels.

      I'm not getting notifications for this discussion, yet it's clearly marked to follow this forum...
      Go figure.

      Take care

        This is irritating and harsh on our little lovely souls. One of my forums, the most recent status I uploaded, and even my own hub that I published last time were not visible in my feed. I honestly don't understand why. This is a pain

        Mercy HP!

          I’m not sure what is up with the notifications, we seem to be getting some appear on the feed and not others. It all seems quite random.
          But as they say, “all is fair in love and war”….. but then this isn’t either of those is it?

            It's like they're trying to see if we pay attention...
            Pulling a fast one leaving the ones I want to know about off of my notifications.

            Trying our patience, like what us our last Straw??

            Little do they know...time flies when you're having fun.

            We all have fun.  We love writing.

              I couldn’t have said it better myself. I have been here 12 years and am still here, so I am hard to get rid of..a bit like a barnacle.
              I have put “Poems From the Porch” on hold for a bit unfortunately, but maybe I will write them and just hold off on the publishing for a while. Or maybe I should do one and see how it goes, but most of the fun is reading people’s reactions to the poems I write for them.

                I'm hoping that everything will be fine soon. It's always a pleasure to read Poems from the Porch. It's painful when you write something on readers' request and those readers are unable to comment on that piece. I can imagine how that will feel.

                I totally understand.
                Not being able to repost my word prompt is a pain.

                I always enjoyed those comments.

                If you write a poems from the porch series....
                We can start a discussion for you.

                It's not the same, but it might work.

                Just let me know.

    Brenda has been good enough to share our articles so it is fair we do the same for her. It is strange that this did not appear on your feed, Misbah…I must have known of your problems with it freezing haha. Glad you saw it here anyway. Have a good weekend.

      Yes, you are right. I did receive notification about her previous piece, 'Finish Line,' and I created a forum for it yesterday. I guess I should pour some hot water on my feed. Maybe the ice will melt. Haha  big_smile tongue wink

    Love is the most important word in action in the world. All creatures are glued together with love.
    Love is when two people or thing are stronger together than apart. With many kinds of love and many acts of kindness.

    Thanks for sharing your poems. Not ever enough love going around.

        I stand corrected.
        Love is definitely Strength.

          It's easy to be confused, not alot of guys talk about love as a top strength.
