Thank you

Dear Subscribers, Readers and Contributors,

Thank you all for your much appreciated support of Positive Words magazine during 2014.

It has been a difficult year on a personal level with illness, tough times for several family members and sadness as my mother has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and my father struggles at times to cope. It has all taken its toll both emotionally and financially but I am forever indebted to all who have continued to support Positive Words, especially those who have sent kind donations towards the printing costs and stamps which have really helped with the huge postage bill (further extended with the rise earlier this year!). As most of you know, the magazine is a labour-of-love and I do not receive wages or payment for my time, so the support is vital and very much valued.

Many of you have also confided you own troubles throughout the year and my thoughts are with you. I do hope your situations improve in the near future.

Unfortunately, perhaps in part due to my distractions elsewhere and lack of time to promote the magazine and competitions, subscriber numbers have fallen but Positive Words will continue as usual through 2015. Apart from my mother’s condition, most of the other situations have improved and I am looking forward to the coming year and encouraging new writers and subscribers in their writing endeavours. Please spread the word if you know of anyone interested in writing.

Once again, my sincere thanks for all the support and encouragement through the year and I look forward to hearing from you all and seeing more of your work in 2015.

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and New Year,

Sandra James

Today’s prompt . . .

Thank you!

Not only a heartfelt message from me but I’m sure it will inspire a poem or story.

I have received so many good wishes lately and want everyone to know how much it means 🙂

And, it helps. Big time!

Thank You Day :)


I know there is probably a world day for thank-yous etc but for me it’s today!

After posting last week about some of my problems with a certain troublemaker/killjoy/bad-sport, I received many very much appreciated comments, emails and letters of support and it means so much – Thank you!

It was a very sad week for Positive Words last week. On Monday, one subscriber’s husband rang to say she had passed away a few weeks earlier. A lovely lady, very enthusiastic and a prolific writer who will be greatly missed by her family. By mid-week I received a letter from subscriber whose partner had passed away and on Friday one from another subscriber whose husband is very ill. Then on the weekend, an email from a daughter telling me her mother (a regular contributor) is very ill and now resident in a hospice but is still hoping to write a story for the December/Christmas issue. An amazing, thoughtful lady.

My thoughts are with everyone going through difficult times.
