Be the Hero

Momo has a little hero in his heart.  He wants to fix things.  To come to the rescue.  To do right and to know the answers. He wants to be bigger.  Stronger.  Faster. Oh, but he is small. And he knows it.  There are days I sense he feels like he’s being swallowed up by … Continue reading
