You came at a time I needed you most –
small and perfect, it was hard not to boast.
Velvety brown fur with a patch of white –
understanding eyes and always a delight.
My best friend, my sister, my baby –
Nearly thirteen years we’ve been together,
with always the hope of more to weather.
Though our time here may be limited –
our memories will forever be limitless.

Ps….nothing has happened to my beloved dog. We are just embracing the newest obstacle in her adult life 😊

Simply put, I'm a thirty something single mom of three young boys with a passion for reading and writing. Writing, and reading for that matter, has been a passion since elementary school when a friend and I had our short collection of poetry published through the school where it was on display in the library for an entire year. While I still enjoy poetry, my love has grown into short stories and full length novels. Tag along for the journey, it'll be documented here every step of the way.
