While in college, I spent Thanksgiving with my sister Debora and her new son, Sean. I remember talking on the phone with my mom the entire time while I tried to recreate her stuffing. Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it. I was crushed when I realized I didn’t have Sage and there was no store open.
Then there was a moment of silence followed by fast approaching footsteps coming down the stairs. I look to see her standing there out of breath as a few drops of tears fell down her eyes. "Come and watch Stranger Things with me you big baby,"
Sometimes, when I was too excited to sleep, I’d sneak in the hall and watch my parents decorate and I would fall asleep there with my cat, Sheba.
I was happily surprised today when one of my daughters came to me and wanted to know if she could share her story on my blog. OMG! Tears. I couldn't deal. So today I would like to introduce you to my creatively unique 11-year daughter, Zaya. The following is part 1 of "The Weekend."
My heart melted for my mom in a whole new way. I felt the love that she had for my brother and her cultivating of his imagination.
I published my first Blog on August 19, 2017. It was a short introduction to me. I was so nervous because all I knew was journaling. It was my very own self-therapy. It has always been effective and it only cost me a journal and some ink.
It was so much fun making this video with my hubby and learning more about technology. I look forward to making more of these and sharing my experiences through this medium. In the meantime, go ahead and subscribe to my channel. Thanks!
