There’s A Donkey in the Well!

By Coach Phatty, published on Dec 30, 2013

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at... (more)

Living Like A Ferrari

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 15, 2013

This isn’t an article about a car, well, not really. Rather, it’s a discussion about how a Ferrari would feel if one were to be human. It’s about the type of emotions it would carry inside: the pain, sorrows, celebrations, respect and love it would show others. It’s about the power and confidence provided to those lucky enough to drive and appreciate being in its presence. It’s also about the overall image it would project to the world if made of blood, guts and true feelings.

A Ferrari is an amazing machine. It’s mostly hand made to razor-like specifications and precision by those gifted... (more)

11 Things I Wish My Daughter To Know

By D. Sager, published on Dec 15, 2011

1) Hold your head high, you are beautiful, every day, all the time. When a man asks you to change your appearance to be acceptable to him, walk away and be yourself. Develop your character inside. Beauty is deeper than an outward appearance.

2) Respect yourself. In all you do and say, be a woman of class and honor. You will not get respect until you respect yourself.

3) Follow your dreams, never let a relationship, whether it be friendship, or love, rob you of what you dream.

Don't Be Late

By Deborah Horton, published on Dec 7, 2010

I think that all humans have pet peeves of one form or another. Some are just more bothersome than others, at least to me. My worst one is when people are late. It irritates me to no end.

I try never to be late. In fact, I've always been that one even when I was very young. I didn't like being late for anything. I was often early wherever I went. I always felt it was better to be early than to be late. Especially if I was meeting someone and had told them a specific time to be at a certain place. I felt it was rude to tell them I would be there at a certain time and then stroll... (more)

Jewels Hold No Value For Me

By BusinessLife, published on Oct 23, 2010

Somewhere in my heart, lies a wounded child. She cries at night, alone, and sinks into the shadows of my soul. She sings a tragic melody of love, untouched and life un-lived. She is the bittersweet truth that haunts my shattered past and draws upon the blood of my survival.

Won't you walk with me awhile and share the sustenance of compassion? I have traveled from far away just for a breath of kindness to toss my windblown hair from my solemn and scarred, stone face. There is love to be found. I am more than what is seen, though still a lost soul, looking for your guidance to even fathom... (more)
