Come Back Home

As a teacher, I would always tell students to consider that the further away from home they go to school, the less trips home they’d get to make. Why?

The Ones Who Have Gone Before You

Because of the circumstances of my childhood, I used to tell God that I didn’t want to have children unless I could be the mother I needed to be.
