I Don’t Want To Be A Champion For Abused Women

I’m doing a challenge to blog every day in May. Today’s prompt is “The story of your life in 250 words or less.” I don’t know how to fit 33 years into 250 words, but here goes: I grew up a poor black child….. no wait, that was Steve Martin in The Jerk. Okay okay. I can try to be serious for like five minutes. I’ve never been good at talking about my life. Confusing, I know, because I blog, but I b... Read More »

Love, Loss and Forgiveness

Love and loss, highs and lows, ups and downs. All of these are part of life, but its often hard to understand why. As I’ve mentioned in a few of my previous WIRLs, my family and I have recently joined our YMCA community and on Sundays, a church called Forest Hill houses some of their services in the facility. Last week I attended a group exercise class after the holiday weekend and at the en... Read More »
