Margaret

Margaret      “Yeah.  Give me about like an hour or two.”  I hung up with my assistant and struggled to open my eyes.  The pounding behind my right eye was not the way I wanted to start my day.  Not only was I starting my day like this, I’m pretty sure it’s how I ended… Continue reading Margaret

To My Daughters’ Boyfriend

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/19/13 Dear Boyfriend, I like you, I really do.
