A Heavenly Sense Of Humor

Being a parent, you certainly need to have a good sense of humor. Honestly, laughter is the best medicine there is. I think that’s why God makes kids so darn cute. Once they learn how to talk though, they’re not always so cute anymore! We aren’t supposed to smack them around, the way we were….

For Crying Out Loud!

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that feels pain so deeply, you are compelled to only keep silent. A pain that is so deep, it takes your ability to speak. You can only sit within your thoughts, saying nothing. Just thinking of the cause, the reason or the thing, that has made it…
