A forum for one old woman to speak her mind and share her writing.

Katie, Maddie, and Mae
These three young ladies each have distinct personalities and gifts, but collectively they make up a category I call "My three favorite people under the age of fourteen." They make me smile; they make me proud. In a group of strangers they are well behaved models of polite children; in a group of familiars they can be silly and goofy, or thoughtful and wise. When they write me notes or texts, I nearly burst with appreciation. When I get new videos or photos of them, it's all I can do not to go door-to-door in my neighborhood to share. I am a lucky woman to have these dear granddaughters.
I'm Sara Glerum (also known as Sallie), and there's almost nothing I'd rather do than opine. Some of my earlier posts are long personal essays, but most of the newer ones are small commentaries on daily living. I love hearing from my readers.
