  • Challenged

    I grew up hearing an idiom, “you don’t miss the water until the well runs dry”.

Many times it is so easy to complain about aches and pains, yet having no challenges in the physical. Since […]

  • If— 

    If you can keep your head when all about you        Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,     But make allowance for their doubting too;    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,     Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

    ” I’m sorry for your loss!” “My condolences!” “I will be praying for you!” Once again America is in shock, another mass shooting at an elementary school.
