Going it alone, Christmas, alone, burden, Family matters

  I saw your stilettos as soon as they entered the room. I was hunched over trying to retrieve my two year old from under someone else’s chair. I could not help but notice the mulch from the playground stuck to the bottom of my dirty tennis shoes.   I sat up and took notice […]
