Teach the Children Well
When I was very young, I used to go over to the neighbor’s house to visit. I was fascinated by the rugs and hats and scarves that Mrs. Rogers made with hooks and yarn. Even though I was only eight or ten years old, she agreed to teach me to crochet. Little did she know the value of what she taught.
Thanksgiving and Family Ties That Bind
Family relationships can be stressful around the holidays, but ties that bind families together last through time. Allow me to share my holiday story, ï¿½Two Sets of China, One Family Graced,", as a special thank you for visiting me online. I wish you strong family ties and a Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Reflection And A Special List
Most of us associate Turkeys & Pilgrims with Thanksgiving. But there’s something else that we should also associate with Thanksgiving – A List. It’s Thanksgiving, it’s time for making your list and checking it twice; not your list for Santa, your list of Thankfulness. It’s time to make your list!
The Family Angel
Angels touch all of our lives. Some of them are real live people and some of them are an ethereal presence, felt rather than seen, believed in rather than shown. It seems like most families have one person in their family who is the real live Family Angel. Do you know who your Family Angel is?
The Gingerbread Man and How the Cookie Crumbles
“Run, run fast as you can, can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.” I often return to children’s stories to make a point by identifying the moral of a story and then applying it to commonly occurring behavior in today’s world. This is no different - LOL. Go ahead and laugh - you know you want to!
The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants; Brain Sez?
Many of us have heard the saying that “the heart wants what the heart wants”, but what does that mean; and shouldn’t the brain have something to say about it too? After all the heart is like an engine in your body but the brain is like a computer. So what does the brain have to say?
There Are Two Sides To Every Story (Or More)
How’s Your Perspective and Perception? Do you see things from only one side? In reality there is usually more than one side or perspective to every story. On the inside of the WINDOWPANE, a Hibiscus plant blooms, as on the outside of the windowpane a winter storm rages; what do you see?
Tornadoes, Volcanoes, Hurricanes, Rumbling Words
What do tornadoes, volcanoes, hurricanes and rumbling emotions and words have in common? They often leave overwhelming consequences of rubble, destruction and clean-up in their wake and they are rarely unaccompanied by repercussions. It's important to control rumbling emotions and words.
True Colors Shining Through...
Each of us is the sum of many colors, our true colors that lie below the surface that we don’t allow others to see. They are hidden there, both our darkest and our lightest and brightest colors, ready to come shining through. They are the colors that show who we really are when they break through.
It is said that to err is human, to forgive is divine. That’s an interesting concept and a very open minded way to behave but I’m not sure that it’s always logical. It seems like these days there are just some things that people do to each other that are unforgivable. Are you the culprit or victim?
