As an editor, when I see a story is a 10 minute read, I take a deep breath and pray it can keep my itty-bitty attention span occupied. Then I start to read. This one had me holding my breath, then wiping away tears, wanting to hug that little girl so badly. It had me praying my children never have to walk through what she walked through, or what I walked through. It had me reminding myself to listen to my kids and remember that their feelings are just as real as my own. And this one was, amazingly, over too quickly, I was so engaged.

Thank you for the honor. ❤

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
