    Brenda has written some deep musings here, which are pretty thought-provoking. Also, she shares an exciting word prompt, "Purpose," which can be interpreted and dissected in diverse ways. Thanks, Brenda, for giving another stimulation for the "little grey cells," as Hercule Poirot calls it. The link is as below.

      Thanks Ravi...
      You have me laughing.
      That's the best I've felt in days...
      " the little grey cells".

      Sounds like a thought provoking story maybe??

      Anyway...thanks for sharing & I'm glad my words got you to thinking.

    Bredz, I hope you're doing well. The word prompt "purpose" is a nice one. I like it! I agree with your assessment of frozen food packs; they are rarely half of what they appear to be on the box. Lol! Please take care, my friend. Happy Thanksgiving! smile
    Much Love and Blessings!

    Thanks for sharing, Ravi. smile

      Misbah...
      It's a lesson I must remember.

      I need to have home cooked food already prepared in my freezer for times like these...
      Because I guess I'm just too picky.

      I like real food.

      Glad you liked the word prompt.

    sometimes in life you'd really get to a point where you ponder what is there to life and what's the point of still living or waking up in the morning. this is a word prompt I'm sure a lot can participate. Thank you Brenda an thanks for sharing Ravi.

      Gianella...
      I do know that feeling, but I also know that God has a purpose for each and everyone of us.

      So there is always a point in waking up in the morning, even if we don't understand.

      Only God can decide when our time is up, so don't ever give up.

      We struggle for a reason...you'll know why it all becomes clearer.

      Take care.
      Brenda

        it is just my initial thoughts for the word prompt 'purpose'. a lot of things actually popped into my head and timely for me too.

        take care of yourself too Brenda!

        I'll try to write my response soon.

          I'm glad the word prompt helps to inspire you to write.

          Take your time.

          I'm still not feeling up to par...so I probably won't get to much right away.

    I think week-59 prompt is really interesting. I am glad Dora's article inspired you to find the week's prompt, "Purpose." I am sure this prompt will wake up the muses of fellow writers in intriguing ways. I will wait in anticipation to read these responses. Thank you, Brenda.

    Thank you, Ravi, for highlighting Brenda's post.

      Thank you Rosina...
      Sometimes that's how a word prompt is born.

      I like to show how I choose them so everyone gets an idea.  Other times it be just by looking out the window.

      I'm certain this will bring a few good writes.

    Thank you for posting this new prompt, Brenda. It should inspire some worthy responses. I am sorry you have been feeling unwell, but hopefully, you are on the improve and can enjoy Thanksgiving. All the best.

      Thanks John...
      I really hate feeling this way.  I keep thinking I'll feel better, but I still haven't successfully made anything in the kitchen yet.

      Maybe in the morning.

      I hope this one inspires you to write...just no rush, since I'm still not the greatest.

    I hope you feel better soon and enjoy Thanksgiving, Brenda. Hopefully the road workers will take a break on Thursday! I'm glad you have your cats for company. Pets can be wonderful companions.

      Hey Linda...
      Thank you so much.  I'd be lost without my kitty-cats, but I think one of them is feeling bad like me.
      He's sleeping alot too.

      The one good thing is that the workers are taking the day off...the bad thing ..i think they are off until Monday.

      Thanksgiving will be as it is supposed to be...whatever that might be.

      I do have a turkey ...if i feel up to cooking it.

      My mother is fixing dinner & having a ham, but I'm gonna have to feel alot better to go over.

      I'll be thankful for what I have.

      I'm glad you like the prompt.

      It's been a long day.  Still not feeling well.

      I actually stayed home alone and cooked dinner for one.

      It took a bit of time, but i finally got it done.

      It was great to have some real food.

      Take care

      Happy Thanksgiving Pamela.

      I wanted to be on here earlier today, but it took all my energy to cook me Thanksgiving dinner.

      I'm glad you like the prompt.

      Hopefully I'll feel better before too long...I've been home all week.

    Good job on your response, Gianella. Yes, we can get our answers and sense of purpose from many things such as songs, or random meetings. People can certainly be brought into our lives for a particular person.

    Brenda, I hope you're feeling a little better today. Thank you for sharing your musings about being alone, missing the presence of another and how it zaps one's energy. It was a great segue into having a purpose in life. This is a contemplative word prompt. I will dive into it and see what I can fish out. Take good care.

    Thanks, Ravi, for posting.
