My entry for the week:

My dad used to say ‘sometimes you just have to say…’. Well, no. He didn’t actually say that, but he should have. He’d have said ‘Take a chance. Something’s going to happen with or without you. Why not With?’.

My entry for the week will be a carry on from last week’s and a combination with yesterday’s Twittering Tales post. Enjoy.

“I still can’t believe it. She was here… gone? Her parents said that she was just going on a short trip to Pennsylvania for chemo and would certainly be back for Monday school.
