New Years Day

New Years Day

As I heard the door lock one tear fell from my eye. My grandma walked over to me and said, “Now, your Mom is sad that you did say goodbye.” I ran to the door and I caught her before she left the porch and screamed, “I love you mommy and I’m still mad!” She turned and smiled as she blew me a kiss and mouthed, I love you too. 

Letters To Santa

Letters To Santa

This was I really really really tried my hardest to listen to Tonja, but she gets on my nerves. She always takes my doll without asking and she doesn't let me play with her dolls. She even told my mom that I took a candy cane off the tree even though she did to. I will try harder next year. School is fun my new teacher Mrs. Matthews allows me to help in class, I love to be a helper. I also won first place in the science fair for my volcano. I hope you like the cookies we made, I made the one with the red and white snowflakes.   P.S. Santa: I know I haven't asked you for anything in years, but this year I would love a Subaru Forester.  I so love this vehicle and it is perfect for my family.  I promise to drive with care.

Summer of ’01

Summer of ’01

We laughed and joked and talked and what seemed like 20 minutes was actually 3 hours. The night was approaching fast. My mother sent my sister out to tell me about dinner and we started saying our goodbyes. Once again, we got caught up in another 20-minute conversation that lasted another 3 hours.

I start my new job tomorrow and I need to rest.” He asked for my number and I told him, “If I see you again, I will bless you with my number.”
