I shredded a life today. Piece by piece I dropped it into the shredder, pushed the button and ground it up.

This is the month friends and family are posting 30 days of thanks on Facebook, and I intended to do that, too.

About Julie Seedorf

I am a rambler. That means I am a talker and I flip from one subject to another. Occasionally I write that way too. I can't make my blog about any one subject, there are too many things to say. I am an author of the Fuchsia, Minnesota Series with the Cozy Cat Press. The first book in the series, Granny Hooks a Crook, is available now. Along with that I write a column called Something About Nothing. Again, I do, what I do best, write about nothing. I also feel that as a Grandmother, yes I am old, I want my grandkids to know who Grandma used to be so I also created the Granny Is In Trouble Series. My first book in the series "Whatchamacallit? Thingamajig? is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Life is great, it needs to be lived. There is a child that we keep hidden in all of us in our adult life. We need to let that out once in awhile. We can learn so much from children. Watch their awe when they first discover the world. If we can recapture that, we can recapture the wonder of life.
