^Happy Birthday in Heaven, Mom! (February 8th)^

All of us have an expiration date on life, some sooner than others. Even in Alice’s sickness, she still experienced life, and knew that she was loved and that she had a grandchild, too.

Dear Mr. President”…My Letter to President Trump on his first day in Office!

Dear Mr. President, “Some people say give Donald J. Trump a chance!” I say to you Mr. President, that if you undo President Obama’s signature domestic legislative achievement, and not have something significantly better for Americans in regards to Health Care for all, than all you will be is the poster-child for White Supremacy for … Continue reading

Who are you going to be spending the most time with in 2017?
