Not your ordinary love stories…”Bradley missed the wife he married ten years ago, her prayers and kisses on his way to work, and the sugary smell of her skin that welcomed him home. He told her so.”
Dear Reader, A wedding has to be the worst place to meet your true love. But somewhere in between the minister’s prayers, the elated couple standing at the altar reciting their vows and the candlelight flickering all over the sanctuary, a girl’s heart softens. At least mine did on a crisp fall afternoon while witnessing […]
After a month, or so, of computer issues–ARGH!!! (I’m giving y’all my best pirate imitation)–I am back with a new love letter. It is the fourth in my season of scripting short stories about love. My prayer is that I will consistently practice writing flash and micro-fiction while completing the final edits to my debut […]
Happy Labor Day, Everyone! When our holiday is over, may we return to the righteous work of our hand (a.k.a. the thing God gave us to give to this world). I was thinking this morning that it would be great if we all did what God designed us to do when we were told to […]
Some gals get all giddy about being seen in public with their man. They are like female dogs, protecting their territory by way of optics. “You see me with him. Okay. Step off.” Maya did not have such inclinations. She was a rising star at her job, studying for her Masters, with little time for anything beyond work. And even less time for the man she saw most.
Go. Play. Outside. Children who play inside all day later build destructive devices with their idle minds. Hopscotch and Tic-Tac-Toe on cement meant fun to adults in need of their privacy.

We were brushed outside of our red brick duplex apartment by the broom of Annie-Mae’s sister, Big Teena, who pretended to be our mom while the adults were still recovering from the night before.
this week’s installment of LeeLee’s Love Letters. In this submission, the writer notices “her” on the fly. He and his boys had been kicking it at the park. Their usual pick-up game had ensued for hours. Thankfully he had showered afterward because he was about to meet the woman who might become his future wife.
Short & Sweet Inspiration #4.
Love means never having to feel regret or apologetic for sins or shortcomings. But when you fall short and feel remorse, because we all do, I hope you’re quick to forgive. May you try this act of love on yourself, first, before attempting to love someone else. ❤️ Stay tuned for the next love letter […]
Dear Reader, As you know, I write blog posts about purpose, productivity, and living life with passion. For a season I am sharing short stories about relationships. I’m calling them LeeLee’s love letters. A few revolve around my own historical fiction, and many do not. But all are examples of relationships (for anyone who has […]
