We had a broad range of responses this week, from humorous fiction to pensive memoir, but it was the voices of the young (and young at heart) that spoke loudest to me. Bee of B. Natividad wrote a touching story about a child with a secret in Breaking Commandments:
Mommy and Daddy wouldn’t buy her any because she already had a set of bricks, but they weren’t Legos. So on Mondays through Fridays, Elizabeth hid bricks in her pockets to keep under her bed until she collected enough to build a house. Sometimes, she kept one or two in a pocket to remind her of her goal.
Crinkly Pages let a mother enjoy a moment stolen from childhood in Snow Day.
Have a look at this week’s responses and have a wonderful weekend!
