The air was heavy between us as we sat around the coffee table again. I took my usual place on the loveseat and he took his usual place on the floor, propped against the futon. I curled my knees to my chest and started to trace my teeth with my fingers while I waited for him to say something. Anything.
Watson grips the chair and pushes it harshly into the desk behind me, “Do. Not. Play. Games. With. Me. Boy.” He spits out, “I am a kind man but she is like a daughter to me and I see the way you are looking at her.” His bite is sharp and I am left stunned.

Additionally I choose to start a Pampered Chef business because I love their products … Continue reading Cooking With Cast Iron

I guess I begin to question my life and really ponder the impact I made in the year past. Did I make a difference in someones life? Did I fail? Did … Continue reading Goodbye 2015…You were good to me

So when David gets off work and walks a little ways to give me his last free coffee (he works at Starbucks) of the day it is always very sweet. However today he was working a Starbucks about … Continue reading Feeling Special
It really is that time of the year. Sales at retail stores, red cups at Starbucks, snowfall (in some states), and accents of red and green are everywhere. The time of year where joy should fill you to your brim. However sometimes the holiday season can be hard on people for various reasons like the … Continue reading To good to be true or are things finally beginning to turn around?
