My husband just says to write small, lol. I’ve had around […]

Flashbacks, in one word can bring you to your knees.

Over the years I have been affected by three house fires. The first was November 1994, 34 degrees and it was raining. The day and time are not as vivid in my mind anymore. This was the one was while I was still with the biological […]

More than a pain in the butt
