Are you ready? If not, put your thinking cap on...come on, if I can remember, you can.
Here's the story of my first kiss:
I remember mine, which is amazing, because most of the time I can't even remember where I left my reading glasses. Anyway, I was in the sixth grade, and I had a huge crush on a boy who I can actually remember, but I do not want to post his name. Our classroom had what they called a 'Reading Center,' away from our desks, somewhere in the back of the classroom. This where I spent most of my time, regardless of what else was going on in class. I haven't the slightest idea why our teacher let me get away with spending the year away from my desk, in the 'Reading Center,' but I'm glad he did.
I''m writing a better post at the moment, so I beg for your patience, just in case anyone remembers I'm still here. :) Thanks to all of you who do remember me, and have taken the time to comment.
Oh yeah, don't forget to let me know what song is in your head today. Just roll down a let and you'll see the song in my head today posted. You can let me know by commenting on this post. Thank you again.

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
