I’ve had a lot of time to consider this and there are just several things I loooove about children, many of which actually challenge me. To be sure, a number of us wish for the simpler days of childhood, and it is easy to fantasize (and even glamorize!) those days, but one thing that has…Read more Children teach Us
As I start to write this, I find myself humming the song: “’tis the season…” but I find that I don’t want to simply complete it the usual way: “to be jolly”. I can think of other ways to end the phrase, but I’m first curious as to how you would. As we complete what…Read more Tis the season
So, grownfolks, I live in one of the states within America that has begun opening up in phases and boy, what a difference it has made!
