It’s one of those times where you didn’t mean to do something, but it happened anyway, and the other person was hurt a lot. This happened to me last night. … Continue reading A TIME OF HEALING
My most favourite time of the year when I was little wasn’t Christmas. It was when we visited my Grandma in a little town out west. If we went at Christmas time, it was doubly exciting!
