the fire escape/morning

iced feet to the
right of strangers

a man in all black
speeds past  

a woman wrapped in wool
slicks down ice steps

and another with a steady
cough-heavy gait

fades from morning
to work, to a house or

hospice, a small car
covered in slush, I could

make a home
in these intimate sun

ripe moments, the
silence, the disguised

glances, the way their
paces leave melting prints

but if I heard what goes on
in the creaks of their

bones, felt the
fissures of their hands

would it mean
more than this,

would I leave?

Please help this lovely family in their time of need

“Our mom was first diagnosed with cancer 10 years ago and has been fighting like a warrior ever since. In November she was told the cancer had spread to her brain as well as her lungs, liver, and spine. For the month of January, she was hospitalized twice in Sarasota Memorial Hospital and had fluid drained from each lung. She is currently under the care of Hospice and is in the Hospice House trying to rest.

While the emotional strain has been difficult for both of us, an added stressful burden is financial cost. Many of you have been reaching out to help in any way that you can whether it is flowers, food, visitation, or financial help.

We are creating this page to make it easier for anyone who would like to donate any amount at any time. The money will go towards things like medical costs, traveling costs, funeral costs, and any unforeseen costs that may come up. 

We are both trying to spend as much time with our mom as we can. Donating any amount would take stress off and mean we could focus our time and energy into being with our mom rather than figuring out finances.

If you do not have the funds to donate, posting this link on social media or emailing it would be equally as appreciated.”

Please help spread the word by reblogging this and even posting to your own social media 💕

The Queen presented with teddy bears for Prince George and Princess Charlotte

The Queen was touched to receive two teddy bears for her great-grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte on Thursday. The monarch was presented with the gifts during a visit to The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, which is just over three miles away from the Sandringham Estate.

The hospice has recently opened a new £3.4million facility which provides care and support for people with life-limiting conditions, and the Queen met with patients and bereaved relatives who have benefitted from its work.


The Queen was presented with teddy bears for Prince George and Princess Charlotte

They included nine-year-old Jack Plummer from King’s Lynn, whose mother Amee Walton died from a brain tumour in 2013 at the age of 29. He presented the teddy bears to the Queen on behalf of bereavement charity Nelson’s Journey, with handwritten notes to George and Charlotte.

He wrote: “Please look after this bear like Nelson’s Journey did to me.”

The youngster explained that his mother was looked after by the charity’s Hospice at Home service, adding: “The Queen seemed really interested in the support I’ve had and said the prince and princess would appreciate the presents.”


The Queen visited The Norfolk Hospice on Thursday

The Queen is often presented with gifts for her great-grandchildren, along with an array of weird and wonderful gifts for herself. An official record of the gifts received by the monarch in 2015 shows she was presented with everything from the first rugby ball from the Rugby World Cup to a bag of salt.

Her official engagement on Thursday coincided with the announcement that Spain’s King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia had postponed their official state visit to the UK. The royal couple were due to visit the Queen in March, but have delayed their trip due to the ongoing process of forming a government following the hung parliament result in December’s General Election.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said of the news: “The Queen has been informed of the Spanish Government’s decision to cancel the forthcoming State Visit. The Queen, of course, fully understands the decision and the context in which it was taken.”

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney 'to face former club Everton in testimonial game'

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney will reportedly face his former club Everton in his testimonial game before the start of the next Premier League season. The 30-year-old striker was awarded the game in October last year by the Old Trafford club to mark 12 years at United.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has apparently given the green light for Rooney to face his former club in the game, which is to take place just a week before the start of the 2016-17 Premier League season, according to the Daily Mail. Proceeds from the game are to go towards the Wayne Rooney Foundation, which distributes the cash to a number of carefully selected organisations including the NSPCC, Alder Hey Hospital and Clare House Hospice, as well as the Manchester United Foundation.

“I would like to thank everyone involved in making this testimonial become a reality,” the United captain said when he was awarded the testimonial game in October. “Most of all I want to thank the fans for all their incredible support for me and the team since I joined the club. The match night will obviously be special for me and my family but I hope it will be a night of celebration for all involved and that we can also deliver one or two surprises. Most of all I hope the fans will come out in force and help raise as much money as possible for these amazing charities, all of which are very close to my heart for different reasons.”

Rooney became England’s all-time leading goalscorer last year, and he is currently seven goals away from matching Sir Bobby Charlton’s record for Manchester United. The record-breaking star joined United shortly after he excelled for his country in the Euro 2004 contest at the age of 18.
