Protected Words and Ideas
It disheartens me when I read about instances of content creators stealing the published work of any type of creator by republishing stories and original ideas from them and passing them as their own.

The Real Life Of A Single Mom
I’m becoming sentimental. While planning my daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday party, to be held in a few months, my mind has been drifting. I keep thinking about time’s swift passage.

I am ready to celebrate this milestone in my daughter’s development, but I wish I had magical powers to turn back the hands of time.
Do Your Children Attend An Elite Private School?
I shared the content of this story with the “Parent Affinity Group” at the Ellis School during a virtual meeting commemorating Black History Month on February 17, 2022. This group supports the needs of Black parents with girls enrolled in this independent school. My message for the parents was recorded on my “Ignite Family Engagement” YouTube channel. A link to this recording is located at the end of the story.

Steel Cut Crock-Pot Oatmeal
So, my sister has been raving about a breakfast dish that she prepares for her family. According to what she told me, her family often wakes up to a delicious aroma after her recipe cooks slowly through the night. My sister also said that the taste of the oatmeal is so delicious her husband and children join her in eating it as if it were a dessert.
