Life is too short and never contains too much love.
This site has brought new meaning to the phrase...."The Three R's." In this case I find it stands for .......Reading.......Reviewing........and Rating.....lol.
I have always enjoyed writing, but had no confidence that anyone would want to read what was in my thoughts or what I had experienced in life.
I have 8 brothers and 3 sisters and I can't imagine what it must be like to be an only child or have a small amount of siblings. My parents did a fantastic job of raising us children. My father worked long hours for a very small amount of money and my mother ran the household. The first home I remember had no luxuries such as indoor plumbing, furnace, etc. However, I would not change anything about my childhood cause it taught me how to survive and work hard.

notesandmore: Hi there, Congratulations on your new awards, you deserve them.
Millie, we have very similar backgrounds. I am the 9th in a family of 10. (7 girls and 3 boys) 6 of us girls are still living. We are all old enough to die, just haven't yet :-) When my girls (twins) were little they went to Christian camp one year. When they came back they wanted to know if I had ever gone to camp when I was little. I told them no, with the size of our family 'we were a camp'. I would not trade my upbringing for anything in the world. One year our toilet became a palace for spiders. That was a kodak moment to see everyone hit the bushes. People who haven't lived in the country haven't lived. Have a great night. Tell your Mother I love her. Carolyn

notesandmore: Good Morning Millie, I haven't heard from you in a couple of days so just want to check on you and your sweet Mother. I figured you are probably letting your 'writers cramp' you got from the novel settle down :-) Everything is good here, we have snow. Have a great day, Love, Carolyn

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.
The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
