Family Squeeze #SOL18 27/31

I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  I appreciate this space for writers to tell their stories and connect with each other.

This afternoon didn't end so well.  

Tonight was better.
Keith wrapped me in a hug.
Then Autumn burrowed in close to me and threw her arms around me.
Finally, Destiny jumped on the three of us shouting,
"Family Squeeze Time!"
We all wrapped our arms around her and squeezed as tight as we could.

Family squeeze time was just what I needed.  


  1. Love that! Family squeeze time. A little miracle of time.

  2. Every time I read a slice about your girls I get a big lump in my throat. Even though this slice is about making YOU feel better, your girls are still learning what it means to be part of a healthy, loving family. There is nothing better than that!

  3. Destiny makes me smile again and again. Family squeeze time can likely fix everything. Take care, my friend.
