Oh, Little One

I love babysitting. Sometimes though kids would ask the darnedest questions. More than often I'd have particularly younger girls asking me if I had a boyfriend.

I've been encouraging myself to share more of my past writings. So here one is: "02.27.2017 || 3:30 AM For some reason there is part of us that doesn't mind getting friendly-teased or jokingly picked on or given a 'hard time'.

My Door is Always Open

"My door is always open, kettle is always on, and my sofa is always warm and a place of peace and no-judgement. Anyone who needs to chat is welcome anytime. It's no good suffering in silence.

A Letter from the (un)Birthday Gal

I'd like to begin by giving a huge THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who wished me a happy birthday today. Your kind words, thoughts, and wishes are genuinely appreciated, brought smiles to my face, and a warmth to my heart. BUT to clarify, today is not the actual day I was born into this world... April Fools' Day,... Continue Reading →

empty / half-empty / half-full / overflowing

Have you heard of the Bucket Man? He encouraged others to be kind, fill people's buckets (not be a bucket dipper), make them feel important, love them, and live life with them?
