    Writing to Discuss Writing


    I once again enjoyed this week more than I expected! I was a little concerned at first about the Writing Week because writing is not one of my favorite things to do, but I enjoyed the prompts. I found the writing prompts that allowed me to think and create what …

    Witches of the Past

    Dear Mom…


    Dear Mom,

    Thank you for taking on the lifelong journey of parenting me. As I have grown older, I have realized more and more how much you wanted and want to be a mom, my mom. From the day I was born, you wanted me. I know that you want …

    When your friend says it will be fun…


    We have all been there. We are not interested in doing something, yet our friend somehow convinces us to do it… Sometimes it works out, but also sometimes we end up looking like this…
