For Susannah Bianchi – A blogging friend of mine asked me this week if I would re-post the dog story. I knew just what post she was talking about! Please enjoy if you haven’t already read it and if you have maybe you will enjoy the story again! (I’m also testing a new format for posting. Tell me what you think.) ~Elle

Finding Myself Through Writing

I find  it’s harder to say no to my kids now that they are grown and not children anymore. At times I have to grit my teeth and stand my ground.

Andrew: “Mom? What are you doing?” (He always says Mom with a question mark as though someone else would be answering my cell phone. haha)

Me: “I’m pulling out of the driveway on my way to DFS.”  (I could tell by the tone in his voice he had something on his mind.)

Andrew:Hehesitates.

Me: “Something wrong? Do you need something?”

Andrew: “Lauren found three abandoned puppies (people are so cruel) and she made me take one of them. It’s soooo cute. I was going to give it to you during Thanksgiving break – you know – for a present. I can’t keep it though. I think I’m just going to drive over there (2 and 1/2 hours) and bring it to you.”
