  1. Poet Rummager says:

    “He told me to get some sleep so I would feel better to go away tomorrow.” This sentence, from Samantha’s poignant story was not only heartbreaking but very telling. Here, in America, there are parents, as well, who don’t spend much quality time with their children even though they live with them 24/7. The U.S. has been inundated with video games, cell phones (texting) and other technology that have really taken the place of not only babysitters, but parents, as well.

    I loved your story, Samantha! Although it was less than 500 words, it was filled with so many bittersweet moments. Amazing depth and insight. I look forward to checking out your website! Rose

    Poet Rummager – just looked at some of writing on your site – ‘loved God still loves Emma Sue.’ You have a great idea. A friend of mine had a site where she baked a cake each month based on a book she’d read and invited others to get involved.
