Amost 5

I hugged her way too tight and wouldn’t let go. She asked me to. I didn’t want to and asked if I could hang on just a few minutes longer. It would be one more sleeps until she was 5. 5. FIVE. No matter how I wrote it the number seemed impossible. I remembered her…

One Day on your Birthday

When I was young I used to curl up with my mom, finding comfort in her soft lap, mommy perfume, and gentle strokes through my hair from her long finger nails. We would whisper and giggle while I pressed her heart shaped necklace into her skin, making a perfect heart shaped indent. As I grew…

OH Canada! One More Year….

How can you tell your country is one year older? It doesn’t have wrinkles, saddle bags, or crows feet. It doesn’t complain of an aching back, sore knees, or arthritis.
