31 Days of Stories for the Journey

Stories for the Journey


My life has been very full. As you know, I haven’t posted here much lately. Yet, I remember last year’s 31 Days challenge, and I feel like I need to make space for it again.

In case you don’t remember, 31 Days is the challenge thrown out by the Myquillyn Smith (or, the Nester) to write every October, every day, on one topic. I have chosen Stories for the Journey.  Every day we are writing a line of our life story. These are stories about my journey for your journey. Through telling my stories, I hope to encourage you to share yours as well.
