Once Upon a Time, There Was a Girl and a Boy …

Y’all, I seriously don’t even know where to begin a story that’s been 26 years in the making. Twenty-six – painstaking, heartbreaking, death-defying – years.

NaBloPoMo | Day 12 : The Power of Saying, “No.”

Saying, “No!” seems like it should be easy enough. It’s two little letters. It’s one simple word. And while I have no problem saying, “No!” when it comes to my son, I’ve had difficulty saying, “No!” when it comes to other family members and sometimes even my friends. By a show of hands, who else […]
