Don’t Call Me Strong

A while back a good friend of mine paid me the compliment of calling me a strong woman. My mouth said, “Aw, well thank you,” but my brain rolled its invisible eyes & said, “Girl, don’t call me that…I am exhausted.

To the Year that Kicked My Butt: Thank You

2017, what is there to say about you? You ran in out of nowhere, sped through the room like Usain Bolt, & mugged me on the way out the door.
