I hate Halloween!
I love Halloween!
Both sides equally passionate.
Here’s my take, I love people visiting our house.
Every year on October 31st many children and adults come to my front door filled with hope.
They come hoping for a tasty treat.
They come hoping for something to make their life better.
What they get is a smile, a sense of community, and a moment to realize that the world is a better place than it seems.

I grew up with my sister Kristie and the two girls next door. There were many days that a blanket was hung on the front steps from the hand rail on either side of the concrete steps.
In the shade of the blanket we would play “house”.
Kids Playing House
Playing “house” was an activity in which we pretended to be an imaginary family. “House” had loose rules, roles and responsibilities; unless, of course, I got it wrong. Which I often did.
Pretend-play was a challenge for me when I was little.

I told someone this week how special it is to be married to my best friend, have two great kids, have a life-transforming job, and be healthy nearing fifty.
On the other hand, it’s so special to be like the young woman on this picture wondering what the future holds. Wondering who she will become.
