  • ‘Work is a blessing, a gift from God’

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, “Cinderella-style.”

    After that, I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.

    When I finally sat down with my can of diet ginger ale, it hit me how good it felt to work with my whole body.

    The scrubbing motion stretched my tight back and polishing the stainless steel until I could see my reflection made me smile.

  • Chapter 8 -Dog Gone Wild

    Where could my brother be?  When he realized he’d lost his harmonica, he left the tent before we could stop him. Dad immediately went to find Woody. “Don’t worry, Chloe,” Dad reassured me. I’ll find your brother. You and Mom get warm clothes ready for Woody. I’m sure he’s one chilly dog now!” While Dad was gone, Mom and I gathered up towels and blankets so Woody could get dry and warm. Gathering up the towels, I saw Woody’s backpack. The pupcorn, electric blanket, and art supplies were still stuffed in the bag.
