My Apologies


Blog Posted:7/17/2017 7:36:00 AM

I have not been feeling well lately so my son and his wife have come to visit for a few days. (Really to keep an eye on me) I think it is rather rude to be on the computer while I have guests, so I write my poems at night after they go to bed. Unfortunately, I have no time to read and comment. They will be leaving in a couple of days and I will be back reading and commenting again. I apologize for not being able to read but I seldom have company, especially my children. I've made my share of poor choices in my life but this one is a no brainer. I'll choose my kids every time. See you all in a few days and once again my apologies.

No explanation necessary. Be selfish with the bounty of family as it is meant to be. Many cannot enjoy that blessing. Well done, DT. Feel mucho weller son... :-)))

Hope you feel better soon Daniel and enjoy your time with the family there is no need to apologise being with them is far more important than soup - I too haven't been active but I've been away for a few days and poetry definitely was on a back burner:-) hugs Jan xx

No need to apologize - we all have lives outside of poetry, and spending time with one's children is one of the most important things. I hope you feel better soon.
