I could not write anything based on the word revolt. I have tried to write every day, but sometimes there is not much to write and today is one of those days. Being sick does not help me concentrate on writing either. I had to look for something easy and I found this quote with a very interesting message. I hope that tomorrow I feel much better and I can continue writing the daily challenge.

As I contemplate my father’s empty bedroom, I am overwhelmed with sadness. It’s been two months since my father passed away and I can still feel his presence. There are times that I relive that day, the day I lost him. I remember when we were talking for a moment and a few minutes later he collapsed. As my father closes his eyes in the meantime, I’m screaming please open your eyes and tell me you’re fine. While I contemplate his empty bedroom, I sit in his bed waiting to hear his voice. I can’t believe it’s been two months since you passed away. I miss him too much.

Today in the USA we are celebrating Martin Luther King Jr birthday. Do we actually celebrate his birthday? Do we know exactly “The Dream Speech”? What kind of man he was? My personal opinion it’s another regular day with no school, no government offices open, and for businesses attracts customer with phony discounts. It’s a sad statement, but true.
We should be celebrating the life and achievements of this magnificent civil right leader. He would be 89. I wake up this morning to watch the News and they’re only talking about President Trump and his ridiculous remarks about racism. President Trump is dividing our country with his lies and vulgarity. I wonder what Martin Luther King would say regarding the racist remarks from the President. Where is Justice when we need it?

As a mother of three there was also an ultimatum. If they didn’t follow the house rules there would be consequences. I wasn’t as tough like my husband, but when they didn’t listen or follow the house rules they would be grounded.
On the other hand, as a grandma it’s a different story. We have the same house rules like when I was raising the kids, however when it comes to the grandkids I’m softer.
It’s funny how I can give them the ultimatum with a straight face and when they give me a pouty face I change my mind. They’re well-behaved, polite, respectful, and lovely. They don’t like helping with chores and when they visited they’re messy.
I always want to be the fun grandma as a result, I give the ultimatums to my kids. At this moment they’re living in my shoes also they’re pulling their hair.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is as follows: read closely. When you’re ready to sit down and write your post, look to the publication (book, newspaper, permission slip from your kid’s teacher, whatever you find) closest to you, and base your post on the sixth, seventh, and eighth word from the beginning of the page. Enjoy!
As soon as we get off the elevator, I know something is wrong. This is the first sentence from the book I just received today from the school. Every year during the month of February our elementary schools participate in a reading program they called “one book, one school”. Also, they include fun activities.
This year the book is Fenway and Hattie by Victoria J. Coe. I was reading the papers of the activities for the month and it looks we all going to have fun. Some of the activities are wearing silly hat, mismatch socks, drawings, and wearing pajamas.
The six, seven, and eight words are “off the elevator”. It looks our main character it’s going to have an adventure. The kids are going to enjoy the story. Who doesn’t like dog’s stories?
