Day 350 – My Mom’s Perspective

My mom has been with me everyday and at every step through each apple. She has cheered each high and she’s felt my lows probably more than I have. When she told me she was writing about her impressions of the last 10 years I felt a huge sense of relief. I cried when I […]

Day 126 – What Might Have Been

What might have been. I guess we all ask ourselves that question at different points in our lives. I have some regrets; don’t we all? I want you all to know that the last 4 months have made me extremely happy. Thank you for the support, encouragement and love. I just can’t wait for whatever the […]

It also serves as a way to use […]
