Perfectly Weird

There are times when I’m certain being a mother is the hardest job in the world. Times, like last night, when my son is hurting and I’m hurting double for the sorrow of him and the sorrow of my own heart at his sadness. Times when the world says something about your son is wrong, […]

Talkin’ Bout Revolution
