    Turkey day is over, and the stockings are hung. The dash to the big day has begun. Black Friday was a success and cyber Monday has great deals.

  • Overwhelming Gratitude

    The day after the authorities had contacted my mom and told her I wouldn’t be returning home, I had my first of many hard conversations with my mom and the first and last one with my sister. I won’t ever forget it. We were at my Nanee and Cha-cha’s house in the living room and […]
