Welcome to the tenth day of the 12th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!
Remember, there is one less hour for all slicers today! You can comment on this call for today’s slices until 11:59 EDT.
When I read Amy Juengst’s post titled, Nightmare it got my heart racing a bit. Not all of our slices are sweet and joyful, sometimes slices are a bit startling, like a nightmare. I love the pace from this jolt she had in the night that took on a rollercoaster of irrational thought (one I can only assume I will experience as my children get older)! Go visit her blog titled, The Way I See It for inspiration and ideas today!
