Celebrate your mom today! I am thinking a lot about my mom lately. It was on the 10th of May three years ago, that she received the diagnosis. For her and us, her family and friends a world-altering diagnosis. She had been diagnosed with cancer. On that day we did not know the extent of the sickness. Soon we found out that her cancer, caused … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day – Fundraising
I have wanted to write this post for a long time. I, always find something else that I can write about. But today, I will write about HPV. HPV is short for Human Papilloma Virus, there are many different types of HPV, and some of them are cancerous. My mother passed away two years ago. She died of cancer. She had a very rare cancer … Continue reading HPV – H – A to Z Challenge
Remember those leave piles in your back yard? Did you jump into them? Did you hide inside them and let the fall sun tickle your skin?

No, … Continue reading Spotlight On: A Fall Fairy Tale by Nicola Werner

B is for Book
I read the book, quickly, the way I devoured the likes of Harry Potter and other childhood favourites. It was the first time that I read an ebook and that on my phone. I suddenly had a hard time putting down that computer we call phone (I don’t actually use it that much for calling). While I read the book, about the three ghost children, who had way too early lost their lives and who were stuck in our world fighting evil entities and trying to figure out how to go to the nice place, I thought of my mom, because I was sure that this was the type of story she would love to read.
The book, From Cornflakes to Eternity (here’s my review of it), written by fellow blogger S.D. Gates, who I had the pleasure ‘meeting’ during last year’s A to Z Challenge, she was too late to sign up on the official website, but participated anyways, I am glad that she did, because I might not have found out about her first book. I found out after the challenge that she had a book out in the wild, waiting for reads and reviews, when she had a special offer for it on kindle. So yes, I read it for free, but reading it I longed to pay for what I was reading. Continue reading “B is for Book #AtoZChallenge”
