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…

Making A Big Time Life Change

So, what do you do when you know you truly want to change your life? Well, you put your homestead up for sale and get serious about downsizing. I mean, truly serious. It’s not at all easy to do and most never face this task, unless forced to. When you go through all the things…

Slow Dancing At A Funeral

Most all those that know me are already aware how much I adore art. I have since childhood and still continue expressing myself through the creative processes before me to this very day. My father was the greatest artist I’ve ever known. Yes, he could paint, draw, design, and create things that would blow your…

Shaping The Innocence

Back in the day, growing up was a much simpler time, although I didn’t realize it at the time. Watching today’s teens and young adults shaping their lives is sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes wonderful, depending on those you’re looking at. Some are given the tools needed to survive and some are left to find their own…
