One of my resolutions this year (and last) was to blog more, and I have failed dismally thus far, and in part this is from a lack of good topics to write about – yes I will be blogging about the my crafts, and weight loss, and (of course) fashion BUT I know y’all will get bored with that real quick so I sought out some topics and found some motivation not too far from home – the WordPress Daily Post Blog! They actually have two options; their 365 days of topics document and their blog which posts up topics everyday – giving two possible topics per day, giving you the option to choose which topic suits you the best.
So today I have chosen the topic from the Daily Blog (dated the 31st of Jan because it’s a US based site).
Daily Prompt: SOS
You’re at the beach, lounging on your towel, when a glistening object at the water’s edge catches your eye. It’s a bottle — and yes, it contains a message. What does it say?

My Dearest Estelle
As I lay here, in the home of my daughter, living out my last few days my thoughts drift to you more than ever before. I know this letter with probably never find you, but I wanted to put into words how much you meant to me and how sorry I am that we got separated by war, and time, and distance.
You were my first love. That special person who keeps a portion of ones heart, no matter how many more people you go on to love. I thought about you often over the years, and made several attempts to locate you but to no avail. My daughter recently told me she’s been secretly trying to trace you ever since my beautiful Loretta left us. You would have liked her, she had a laugh like sunshine, and heart to rival Texas. she knew about you too. She understood that a little piece of me would always belong to you. I was blessed to have had you both in my life.
So as I lay here waiting for the pipes to call me home, I hope youfound happiness too and enjoyed a long and happy life and whether it’s tomorrow or ten years from now, I hope we can meet in the next place and share some memories together.
So there it is. my short, but I hope rather sweet SOS blog post.
