Cravings

Crave: to want greatly : to yearn for: to have a strong or inward desire  Oh, I know all about cravings. Cravings are getting up in the middle of the night to make scones because you cannot get them out your mind.  Cravings are my 13 year old nephew walking one and a half miles…

Life Gets in the Way

Come in out of the snow

  Come in out of the snow. I know your hands and feet have got to be freezing cold from building the neighborhood’s largest snowman. You must be exhausted from sledding non-stop down the hill and back up and down the hill and back up again, over and over. Take your coat, shoes and mittens…
