Unfolded Dreams

Dreams are like flowers.

The petals begin pressed tightly together.

But with nutrition and care,

They gradually unfold into a unique creation.

Several years ago, I decided to write. Given I struggled in elementary school, I must say it was a challenging calling. But even though I wasn’t a competent writer, I was determined. And I knew that God was with me.

Blogging was my first step to building the confidence I needed. So I turned to my French Bull dog, Carl. He was my muse and I loved writing about his antics.

My first book, a memoir about my family, Here We Go Joe, has been a blessing to so many families who have a loved one with dementia. Next, I felt compelled to write children’s books. Now Seasons at the School Bus and Jerry Barry, Living Healthy have a special place on my shelf. My next path led me to writing a study on women in the Old Testament called Empty Hands.

Then tragedy came and Carl left this world and has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. But after months of mourning, Vern entered my life and he and Bee have tried to fill a gap that Carl left.

As Covid struck, I found myself entering into the life of three women who come from different backgrounds, but similar in how they all have unhealed emotional wounds. This book isn’t intended to just share a story, but to bring comfort to the hurt inside of you. Scattered Pieces is also a historical fiction set in Durham, North Carolina which happens to be where I have lived most of my life.

I want to thank each of you who happens to be reading this. If this is the first time you have happened on my site or have read my blogs for years. Thank you…

Please visit my book page and hopefully you will find a book that speaks to you…

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
