A couple of months after my mother died, I became aware that I needed something to help me cope with her passing. One day, I was inspired to write a story each day, using a word prompt from a "Photo-a-Day" Facebook group. Some days, it would be the last thing I did, and often as I started to write, I would have no idea what would eventuate. On other days, there would be two or three articles inspired by the one word. Many stories were written over that year, and this book contains 100 of them. Selecting the right stories for this first volume of “Conversations with Myself” took a lot of prayer and shuffling, but I hope they will encourage, challenge, and give you something to smile about occasionally, just as they did for me while I was writing them.
