It is now summer of 2010. I have been divorced from my first husband for 4 years, and married to my second husband for 3 years. I have another child, a daughter. I am a Registered Nurse, working in labor and delivery. On this day, in August I am working and I am in the... Continue Reading →

A Father’s Love, Part 2

There we stand in my grandfather's kitchen. We stare awkwardly at one another. My aunt was crying, my cousin was giggling, my grandfather disappeared somewhere; and there we stood, father and daughter. He took me to Red Lobster for dinner. I hated seafood of any kind.

“Let It Go”

Life has been a bit chaotic, in a good way, the past several months. A lot of life changes, new people, new adventures. Honestly, it has been wonderful. Over the summer, my daughter became very fond of the movie "Frozen." The headline song from this Disney film is "Let It Go." As if I really need... Continue Reading →
