The Very Best of A FORCE OF NATURE!


Hello, all you lovely peeps!
So. Tomorrow is kind of a huge day and it’s going to be hectic but that is the day that this five day hiatus begins. #FP is going to run normally, please don’t worry about that (I’m way too much of an addict to let it go) so send ‘em #FP’s thick and fast on Friday, cos’ I’ll be there for them!
I will not however, be replying to any emails regarding #ForTheLoveofLove until the 7th, when I come back.
Don’t worry, nothing bad is happening, we’re just going to go and change our lives a little.
Change can be good!
True to my word, the fundraiser has been deleted, and I want to thank you all a thousand times and a thousand times again for all you have done for us. Sometimes I have words, and sometimes I don’t that fully describe how grateful I am for the help you have given, for all the kindness we’ve been shown.
I will never forget it.
I promise you that.
The deadline for #ForTheLoveofLove has been extended until the 7th, when this hiatus is over and everything will resume again after that. This time away serves a bigger purpose in our lives, so it’s a necessary break.
There’s still time to send your words, guys. Still time to change my family’s lives, such as we have come to know it …
Anyway, this foreword cannot be too extensive as I am running out of time that I need to spend at home, with my family and get things ready for a new world ahead, so, as I like saying so much, onto the #FP’s!
The theme last week was A Force of Nature, which I admit, was inspired by you guys, a force of nature with your beautiful words and everything you do that blows me away … I mean, you’d think there’d be a pattern of familiarity by now, but every week, it’s like sitting down and down #FP again for the very first time.
The gift that keeps on giving!
And now, enough of my ramblings!
Please enjoy The Very Best of A Force Of Nature!

The Very Best of All For Love!


And here we are …
We have done it. Redeemed three weeks worth of #FP’s, and had a birthday party in between (yup, another one. I know, right? I don’t know how I can stand all the cake either. The sugar is starting to eat me back.)
Anyway, the night now draws to a close.
The hour grows late and while Gandalf The Gray does not ride to Isengard, I ride ever closer to bed, and pillows and dreams of the Shire, where I desire to be more than anything in this world …
Now. As my eight hours of reprieve comes, I shall leave you with this … the Very Best of All For Love.

The Very Best of Second Chances!


Today is the day that the GRAYS are calling Mega #FP Day.
Seriously. There’s a super awesome round of #FP hitting the world right now, as I write this and like that isn’t blowing our mind enough …
Here we are with the lost Very Best Of’s, too!
It is a good day.
For a few moments, it can be good. The struggles at home have not gone away and they never will … but a moment to breath, that’s all it took for us to get some fight back.
Now, we’re gonna keep it that way.
Anyhow, these forewords aren’t going to be too long, because #FP on the other side is calling me with it sweet, ghostly voice and I am compelled to follow, so …
Enjoy The Very Best of Second Chances!
