Short Stories from the Heart by Margaret Helms

Some years ago I was privileged to be a member of a writers’ group. We met each month at the library. A story we had written was to be read to the group at that time. This book is a compilation of those stories.

My family moved many times during my younger years. Every place brought new people into my life along with experiences that I would not have encountered, otherwise. It’s my desire that everyone who reads this book will feel blessed.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings.

Hailey:
If a genie granted me three wishes, I’d ask for Cole Parker to never look at me again, that I’d forget the dark promise in his eyes, and that just once, before he vanished from my life completely, that he’d push me up against a wall and make me scream.
Then I’d go wash my mouth out with soap.
