SOC Sunday: Things I never ask...

5 minute Stream of Consciousness...

How far along were you?

Don’t you want to have children?

Are you trying?

Aren't you going to have any more children?

Don’t you want a little …? (opposite of what you have)

Just a reminder to those meaning no harm, the innocence of your tongue lashes at the ones who are trying, have tried, have failed, have succeeded, have given up, are content. Pray for their grief and struggles, pray that they learn to live with it, pray that they overcome it and pray that they have another chance it they so desire.

Things I wish I never had to say:

I’m so sorry for your loss.


This 5 minute Stream of Consciousness was inspired by "Things I wish I never had to say."

It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
  • Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post.
  • Link up your post.
  • Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.
