Lillian’s class participated in NaNoWriMo and she chose to write a collection of short stories. Reading her notebook brought “sweat” to my eyes … xoxo … Here’s one of them:
Amelia’s Angel Visit
Once upon a time, Amelia’s prince had died and Amelia was a poor queen but one night, Amelia had been visited by Amelia’s prince angel. He had said,
“Respect all other angels like you do with me.”
And so her father, stepmother, stepsisters, and their princes’ angels came along with Amelia’s prince angel and they had said,
“Keep your confidence and hopefully you will strengthen your courage.”
Then one night they stopped visiting and left Amelia alone because she had enough courage to be super-duper happy. To this day, she’ll tell you to keep confidence and you will soon build up courage to be super-duper happy.
