The biggest stumbling block to truly listening, especially to children, is our self-important business. Henri Nouwen SJ, Jesuit author and university professor, complained to God about the constant stream of students who knocked on his office door, interrupting his writing. God’s answer?“I just gave you that book to write to keep you busy in between appointments; your real work is all these interruptions.”
No matter what our occupation, we tend to think that our work, our agenda is important. It is almost in our nature to let ambition and drive push other people to the fringes of... (more)

...most important focus in a person’s life is the all-important “me.”
I thought that it would be a good idea to create a blog that focused on people GIVING things to other individuals rather than trying to GET things. So, I decided to collect and share some short stories of love that I found from around the web, family, friends, and other people who contributed stories. It is my hope that these stories will inspire you, touch your heart, and in some small way, brighten your day. Enjoy!

In every relationship, no matter how many times you say "I Love You," how often the chemistry ignites while on the dance floor or in the bedroom, or how much you desire continuing into eternal bliss, one person always feels stronger for the other. Sometimes though, when a break-up is imminent, the balance of affection is so heavily tipped in the other person's corner you feel hesitant to let them go because of an unwillingness to hurt their feelings or even leaving yourself alone. However, doing them the favor by permanently saying "goodbye" is the most honorable thing to do, both for... (more)
Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows. -Paulo Coelho.
Some are ready to give even their life in the name of Love, pity it’s so because I always thought of it as something meant to give people a long happy life rather than a sad premature end.

It is never above one’s own life, it is only a medium through which we seek for happiness in life. It is a selfish feeling, a feeling which... (more)
...fun for once. When Jack pulled up in the driveway I ran to the door to get there before the cats because the cats don't really like Jack that much. I think Jack was still worried about the last time he came to pick me up since my cats did a number on his leg and hand. What can I say, my cats love me and protect me. I finished getting dressed since I only had on my bikini while Jack loaded the coolers into the back of the truck. I would catch Jack peeking thru the door every once in a while just trying to catch a glimpse of me getting dressed. I just told him he would have to wait and... (more)
Another set of excuses
Another pack of lies.
Sometimes I wonder why I even try
Why I bother crying
Why I tolerate lying
Why I'm continually dying inside
These days its much harder to hide it.
Why am I trying to avert this certain disaster?
What kind of happily ever after could come of this?(more)
