One of the things I’m starting to do a bit more is “meet” other moms and dads who blog. As it’s called social media for a reason, I’m going to start sharing more about that community here.
The blog Dad at the Chalkboard issued a writing challenge this week, to write 100 non-fiction words inspired by a word he supplied. This week was love. Below are my 93 words. Check his blog this week to see what other moms and dads had to say.
I knew love when I rode a bike for the first time.
I knew love when I played baseball and my team made the playoffs.
I knew love when I acted in a school play.
I knew love sitting on the floor of a bookstore, reading while my mother shopped.
I knew love the first time I heard The Replacements and The Smiths.
I knew love when I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark 11 times in the theater.
I got married and had a son.
And realized I didn’t know love until then.
