Some Stories –

“My Dad blindfolded me and then I would have to guess if I was eating white or dark meat.   He was my step father but my very real dad.”

“Sharing” — that’s my story.
The most significant Thanksgiving was a long time ago.  Being a single parent, there were times I spent holidays alone.  One was a certain Thanksgiving.  So I decided NOT to be alone that day and invited anyone I knew who would have had nowhere to go that day.  What I received that day was far more than what I gave!
