About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

Remembering Someone I did not know, but will forever remember:

So I watched the YouTube Video of the St. Johns children singing to Chris Kemper and Erin, and his girls. I did not know Chris, I went to school with Erin, and I've never met his children, but I bawled like a baby to see the outpouring of love and support the Delphos Community gave to him in his final days here on earth. Such a wonderful example of faith, community, warmth and love....I know so many people say that living in a small town isn't for them, that Delphos is a gossipy town, everyone know everyone's business, water bills are too high, the streets need plowed, the school levy didn't pass.....but in times like these, despite all of our woes and strife, WE DO know how to come together for our neighbors, and our fellow man. Life is so very short, fragile and sweet. Money don't make a town, neighbors/friends/family....make a COMMUNITY! Chris Kemper, I honor you by telling you that you touched my heart, got tears flowing from my eyes in your honor, to the family he's left behind, you have my deepest condolences. the song Silent Night, once again, has new meaning.
