The saddest song you ever heard Yep, "The Christmas Shoes" is hands-down one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. I cry every time I hear it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNX7d1ETWd8
Are You Kidding Me???
I consider myself a pretty mild-mannered, easy-going, good-natured person, but on occasion something will rub me the wrong way and I just become ridiculously ungracious and irritated. The very sad part is that it doesn’t have to be anything serious or big; the smallest infraction of stupidity can sometimes send me over the edge of... Continue Reading →
Last week, my best friend, Lucy, and I decided to start doing aquatic exercises. We've been working out for about an hour to an hour and 10 minutes each day we go. Today Lucy wasn't feeling well so she didn't want to go. For a brief second I thought, "Well, if she's not going to go... Continue Reading →

Free from the chains!
Happy Independence Day! How appropriate to be writing this post on our Nation's birthday. This is the day our Nation declared its independence and so, it is also the day I declare my personal independence. I am no longer bound by the chains of pain and sadness! The last few days have been emotional and... Continue Reading →
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6 The dictionary provides several definitions for the word "Honor", but the one I am writing about today is: Honor ~ to regard or treat (someone) with admiration and respect How do we...
