Paying it Forward

23 December 2019 at 09:59
We were at the Dollar Tree today picking up some candy and other odds and ends. As I passed a man wearing a Chicago Bears stocking hat down an aisle, my purse knocked some items off of a shelf. I bent down to pick them up, and as I did, the man also stopped to … Continue reading Paying it Forward


Dinner’s on Hold

15 December 2019 at 22:41
We have a tradition in our house when it is someone’s birthday. Whoever has the birthday gets to pick where they want to go to dinner to celebrate. Nobody in the family can complain about the choice, because it’s the choice of the person with the birthday. We have done this for years with the … Continue reading Dinner’s on Hold

It occurs when you are still in the stage of taking care of your own children, while now having to worry about and possibly take care of your parents. One thing that I seem to continuously forget is that as I age, and my children … Continue reading The Sandwich Season

Every day since I have broken down and cried. The guilt alone is eating me up inside. Why oh why did you pick that place to hide? It’s lonely and quiet without you by my side. If I could go back, IΒ  know I’d have tried, to not be the reason you left us and … Continue reading Joe



Big Give

1 October 2019 at 10:05
Hey all. It’s been a struggle lately. We fell behind a while back, and it seems to be impossible to catch up. We will be a little over $700 short in our account as of tomorrow morning with the mortgage and electric bill automatically coming out. If you feel it in you to help, we … Continue reading Big Give

Have you ever had to ask someone to borrow you money? It is hard to do! Maybe some of the anxiety comes from the feeling of failure, while some may come from the humbling feeling of simply being in need. I am in that position right now. I cannot ask the bank for a loan, … Continue reading Trapped

I’m Not You

3 July 2019 at 21:27
It’s tired, that thing that you do. Where you expect me to be just like you. But maybe I think differently, and maybe I feel compassionately, my heart on my sleeve. Why do you think I need to react indifferently, like the way that you do? I’m not you. Β  I’m tired of wandering through. … Continue reading I’m Not You
