You make every day worth it.

I commented on the challenge post that I had difficulty with this. 1,024 chars is hard enough to stick to for someone as wordy as I am :). But as soon as I opened up the editor, it hit me like the proverbial ton of bricks. My 6 words above are for my daughter.

Mushy? Why yes, yes it is :)




  • from THX 0477:

    Ah, nothing wrong with mushy. Sure beats my prideful little entry. Shame on me!

  • from Melia:

    And there’s nothing wrong with pride in your accomplishment! Congrats Doc!

  • from Compound Fracture:

    Mushy is good. Did you see my “example” in the challenge instructions?

    I was actually reply to your previous comment, “Just open the editor”. You beat me to it.

  • from Melia:

    I loved your example. And I’ll bear in mind from now on that when I’m stuck, just open the editor :)

  • from Tad Winslow:

    Mushy? Why yes, yes it is :) Is even better for the six word challenge (I Think)! Not to diminish the very sweet six words for your daughter. Were you trying to meet the requirements with those last six words or was it coincidence?

  • from Melia:

    I didn’t even notice that until you just pointed it out. Weird :)

  • from Geheim Sir Ayita:

    mushy…........never!! we need a witness, someone to say, Your life will not go unnoticed, because i will notice it. beautiful
