He cried and I was so proud!

About a week ago, I was working on editing a video for YouTube while my nine year old son was watching videos on his laptop. After a little while I noticed that he was watching something that apparently had his undivided attention, and I got curious. I asked him what he was watching. He told me he was watching a…

If Only We Could Replace Your Face

When I was about 14 years old, I had a crush on a guy that was my friend. We had som pretty long conversations over the phone, and I could always count on him being honest with me. I don’t remember much from all of the late night conversations we had, but there’s one conversation in particular that I will…

You are not the most important person in the world!

I strongly believe that everyone is unique in their own way and can never be replaced. You are important to the ones that loves you! Now that I’ve gotten that out the way I’m going to have a late night rant about rude people. I was waiting in line at a café today when a customer came up to the…

There are some things that are quite different when it comes to us gingers and the bullies have a talent for finding those little things and using…

His Tears Transformed Into Words

‘Mom?’ His tears are running down his face like the purest little rivers. The ones that breaks a mothers heart in an instant. ‘What is it sweetie?’ ‘I don’t think anybody likes me…’ He runs into my arms, crying, and while I stroke his back I ask him if anyone has told him that they don’t like him. He shakes…

It’s reunion time…

The time has come. It’s been ten years since I got out of high school and this weekend we’re having a reunion. I’m going to admit that I do have mixed feelings about this reunion. I wasn’t any kind of popular in school and was bullied a lot. I got to feel how cruel girls at that age can really…
