A mom can wipe fears away, for now
Hudson Charles is my loving, little boy, always showering me with kisses and hugs. He is also my worrier. His worries are much deeper than those of the average six-year-old. Many days, I take him onto my lap and attempt to wipe the creases from his brow.

Here are few rules of thumb to help keep you from being publicly shamed on your next flight:

Ginger was given glimpse into her future at early age

Miss Purcell was the only teacher I ever had that took time to read chapter books to her students.

I never wanted to miss a day of school because I was eager to learn what happened next.

Through the miracle of social media, I now have the ability to learn what my kindergarten classmates have been up to for the past forty years.

Old cemeteries are interesting places
I snapped a picture of the black, wrought iron gate and sent it to my family along with the text, "Exploring this old cemetery."

My aunt responded, "Why?"

My question is, why would anyone not want to explore an old cemetery?
