Word Count…

Today’s post is supposed to be about word count. (either less than 300 words or more than 1500 words) . . . So, I decided to write an “essay” about Word Count. I was going to write another update post, but I figured I’ve done enough of those this week, so, I should try something…

A poem/letter…

My first blog post poem!  Now, I guess I should disclaim that I didn’t technically come up with this poem on my own. I came across a post this past week where someone was sharing their feelings, and while reading it, I decided to put together some of the words to form an encouraging letter/poem….
