Blog professionals say to write to just one person. Like when we would have scripture study or homework. I would write to my children. They are strong now. They have found their “life rhythm”. My journey may not be compatible any longer. I feel sorry for them in a way. Not having a “real” mother. But if that helps them be more compassionate to … Read More To Whom Do I Write My Blog?
