My Wednesdays

I was born on a Wednesday. ‘Wednesday’s child is full of woe.’ I’ve lived for 2986 Wednesdays and can count on one hand the number of them that have been woeful. I have been blessed – a good man, two amazing children, the best two grandsons in the world. I’ve worked hard and earned enough to be comfortable in a job I truly enjoyed until the last few years. I’ve hopefully escaped the curse of breast cancer that took my mother in her early 50s. I plan to see many Wednesdays as I grow old disgracefully, but if not, I can’t complain.

  1. A poignant piece. It could be partly mine as a Wednesday child. I'm resting from writing as life too hectic at the moment – job application, house move, teaching and dealing with emotional fall out from being a year on from first tests/presumed diagnosis.

  2. The spirit of this is so different from what is expected from the first two lines. Lovely uplifting piece Lynda and here's to many many more Wednesdays.

  3. Thank you, Sally-Jane. Aunty Ali, your positive spirit and the way you support and motivate others despite your own problems is a lesson to us all. You deserve LOADS more Wednesdays.

  4. I like this. I like it a lot. Here's to loads more Wednesdays (and the other days too). 🙂

  5. I had thought to use the rhyme Wednesday's child as well when faced with this prompt. So glad I didn't, you did such a great job!Your jelly bean background is making my mouth water!

  6. That's a lovely piece – so nice and positive and really seeing the bright side of everything. Here's to people who get the most out of life!

  7. Here's to lots and lots more Wednesdays (and the others of course) What a great, feel good piece. Enjoyed it a lot.

  8. I know that not all Wednesday's children are full of woe by dint of the fact that I'm a Tuesday's child and I'm not so graceful. Here's to loads more happy Wednesdays xxx

  9. GSussexPleased life has mapped out so well for you and trust it will continue to be so – happy and healthy!

  10. Welll done for waving the Wednesday flag. I'm glad I shall have some company growing older disgracefully!
