I could use some advice on the best response to my 89-year-old father's letters.
Recently, I kindly and lovingly gave my daughter some feedback on how she berates her husband in front of my 8-year-old grandson.
I moved to town not long before the pandemic and don't have many close friends here.
My husband’s sister passed away in 2013. Her husband, “Roger,” joined her in heaven three months ago.
When my then-boyfriend asked me to marry him, he didn't have a ring ready, but I happily accepted his proposal.
I have a good friend I’ll call Josie. She’s kind, generous and always willing to help.
Since I moved eight years ago, my son, "Jim," has visited me only once, and that's because I gave his son my car.
Two years ago, my husband of 50 years confessed that 46 years ago he had a one-night stand with a total stranger he gave a ride to. He said he had totally forgotten about it until recently.
With the holidays fast approaching, I'm starting to think about shopping.
Last weekend, my companion and I went to one of our favorite restaurants for an intimate dinner.
