I can relate to this poem, as it reflects strongly how I feel about Mother's Day. I will still call on the day and wish someone a happy Mother's Day and accept the same when someone does to me. However, I refuse to buy gifts. Every days should be Mother's Day in my mind!
Wow!! I thought my camping experiences with my kids was enough with the constant chasing after them, risk of falling trees from widow makers and my son's epic bike crash which scratched up half his face. Thank you for sharing the story of you Christastrophe. I really felt like I was there in the tank with you.
I can completely relate to this! Whether it is cooking, cleaning or sewing, I always know the flaws of my creations, or how I could have done them better. My husband, on the other hand, will undo things if he does not think it is perfect. He too, built our shed, and I'll have to ask him if there are flaws that he does not talk about.
Thank you for sharing your life with us! It sounds like you have a wonderful childhood! I was just wondering if you are able to pass on your love of music to your children if you only sing in the bathroom. I understand making your family your priority, as I have done the same.
I love this! As the oldest of six girls, it is such a plausible scenario, and one I am sure you have lived many times over! I dread the time that my two littles are old enough to do premeditated stuff like this!
This fic gives a unique view on the topic of abortion and a very relevant one as well. As a mother who suffered a miscarriage, this story is was very moving. It made me realize that I was lucky that the miscarriage happened at 7 weeks, if I had ever heard it's heartbeat or felt it's movement, I think it would have been even more devastating than it had been in the first place.
Your title caught my attention, as my dad is currently suffering from a concussion and says he had drain bramage as well. Your story really caught my attention, as my sister and I have epilepsy, so we suffer from seizures, but grand mal, not the type you describe. It is an illness that I wish more people would talk about and make awareness of. Thank you for your writing!
I really like the premise of this story. However, I feel that it could be so much more! Right now, it just seems like the short summary of a great tale. Flesh out the story, more background to the characters and more about at least a few of the traps and I would be more than happy to reread it and rate it better!
I love this expose! I think society as whole has changed that the courage of D-Day could never be repeated, at least within this generation. As a woman, I look at your work in regard to my husband and son, whom I believe to part of the masculine few, or at least I am doing my best to raise my six-year-old in that way. Looking at the female side of it, the men of WWII could never have done what they did without the support of women working in the factory and saving their money to buy war bonds to support their men. I think that the women of today, are closer to their counterparts, but also, there are so many more that are more outspoken and can't put their money where their mouths are. It's a moral and cultural dilemma that we face today and one that will take a few generations of determined rethinking to change it.
Wow! This is amazing! Your story telling drew me in and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I think I especially love that he didn't teach his daughter his ways. It was like subconsciously, he knew that he was wrong and didn't want her to turn out just like him. I do wonder what became of her, though!
Thank you for sharing with us how you see language. For those of us who don't have a connection to someone with autism, it is a mysterious ailment that we don't know how to deal with. I have just had a little boy join us in Sunday school where I teach that I believe is autistic. Knowing that he might have a hard time with understanding when I talk to him, helps me to keep in mind that I need to speak with less words and more clarity when I interact directly with him. Also having more understanding in the fact that he won't talk to me. Thank you for the insight!
I love this!! It is so on point. I love your suggestions, because there are times when our lives get so hectic, that we just try to make it through the day. My favorite one has to be surprising them every once in a while. It doesn't happen often, but I know my son loves it when we do something unexpected that he loves.
Your great-grandmother sounds amazing!! I wish I had known more about my great-grandmothers, but my american ones were in Oklahoma while I was in Calilfornia. Your story reminded me of one of one of my great-great-grandmothers, as she, too, came to Oklahoma in a wagon. She was actually a water witch and taught my dad how to do it. While I know the principal of it, I have never actually been able to find water with a divining branch. I don't think I have the patience for it.
Thank you for sharing some of your family with us.
