Can you believe it is May? It only seemed like yesterday I was putting up the Christmas decorations!
For the month of April I took the challenge of writing a sentence a day and now I’ve decided to try it again for May. If you missed my post for April you can read it at A writing challenge: A sentence a day for April
On the first week of each month, we link our posts up and can read what everyone has been up to.
I was surprised at what a full month April was for me and it was lovely to read back through the month to see what I had been up to.
I’ve never really been a journal person, although I have written about the positives of keeping one. However, each time I’ve started I’ve given up. Writing a sentence a month is short and sweet but can be a pertinent reminder of all the good things and perhaps not so good things that happen in life.
