The Right Time

If you are kind to someone, you may never know the effect it has. It is possible that it may have no impact whatsoever. But to be fair, one must take into consideration that it may be the exact thing needed to help another person change direction. At […]

Givers and Takers

We all start out with a blank slate. It is natural to take. From the moment we are conceived, we took from our father and mother. From then on, our mother supplied us with the necessary nutrition. For nine months she gives of herself. It continues even after […]

The Real To-Do List

Several people close to me have told me about their experience raising children. On one hand is how they can drive everyone nuts. However, before finishing the sentence they continue with how big of a blessing they are and how they wouldn’t change their life for anything. Still […]
