“He, who had done more than any human being to draw her out of the caves of her secret, folded life, now threw her down into deeper recesses of fear and doubt. The fall was greater than she had ever known, because she had ventured so far into emotion and had abandoned herself to it.” - Anaïs Nin
Observing these things operating occasionally in my relationships is normal. However, if I see a few things happening all the time, and especially if I make excuses for the violation of these principles, it is cause for great concern. Be wise my friends...My friend will inflict... Read More
They are immediately disgusted and even shriek a “eewww”, “gross” when they see their parents kissing. Do they not know how we felt when we discovered they were no longer “innocent” in ways of the world?
I mean, let’s get real here. I kept my “eewwws” and “gross” to myself!!
I don’t think our children realize how they make us feel every time they utter disgust at seeing us, their parents, hugging and trading spit. Hey, they do it, too! Just because we’ve gotten older and are now grandparents doesn’t mean the action stops! It just means we’ve slowed down in life, but we aren’t... Read More
On March 15, 2013 bloggers, the power users of social media, will unite together for "Do The Right Thing Day." The outcome of this event is for bloggers to inspire others through their actions. When other people see and hear about the amazing difference that both small and large acts of "Doing The Right Thing" made and continue to make in the lives of others, some people will be inspired to change and "do the right thing" when faced with life's choices.
It's very easy to see and complain about what's wrong with the world, with our lives, with the life of someone or a bunch of people... Read More
“Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero,” seize the day, putting as little trust as possible in the future. And that’s just what many single moms are doing today, seizing the moment at hand. They are taking control of their own lives. Life, after all, is often a disambiguation.
The Reality: Life happens. Love is found. Marriage is made. Family is created. Dreams are crushed. And in many cases, when there just isn’t room for compromise, divorce is the ultimatum. Today, brave women are boldly girding themselves and moving to rise from still smoldering ashes and carving a new path for... Read More
So there I was, sitting comfortably inside a church pew listening to one of Dallas’ most popular preachers spreading his message, when curiously, I decided to gaze around and take note of others cell phone usage. What I saw was the inspiration of this week’s topic.
The Preacher’s message this week was very timely: How to take a day off; not only taking at least one day off each week from anything work-related, but really taking it off away from cell phones, computers, and anything electronic which could distract from quality time with family, friends, or doing something one regards as...

As parents we accept certain things. And one of them is that our children grow up and eventually leave home.
Even though we accept this, it does not mean we like it.
Son no 2 has lived in Dubai for almost 2 years. I would be lying if I said I was totally happy with this. Has he made the right decision to start his career there - YES. Is he better of there - YES. Does he have better prospects there - YES. Is he safe there - YES. So why a I not happy? Because I still think of him as my baby and I want to be near him and protect him and share certain memories with him.

I am the mother of 4 boys and although I regard my boys are reasonably mellow, I have had my fair share of visits to the emergency room. After 24 years of motherhood and 4 sons, I have this love hate relationship with my doctor,the emergency rooms and our medical aid.
I can diagnose almost anything now and I get really annoyed when doctors tell me I am wrong (- which is never!). I also get very annoyed when I have a injured child and I have to take him to the doctor before I can get an X-ray done. Invariably the doctor orders an xray just to make sure so why must I wait for an emergency... Read More
