Generally, for most of us, life is good. We have healthy bodies, we can walk, talk, hear, see, and feel things. We can exercise, eat, drive our cars, live in a nice house and having loved one who care for us. On the most part, we have all been blessed, beyond measure. If you think about it, even on our worst days, we can still do all of these things...we should ALWAYS be thnkful for EVERYTHING that we have.
But what about the people that have to deal the unfortunate situations such as mental and physcial handicap? Terminal diseases? Lifelong sicknesses or deformities? Have we ever sat... (more)
I was frantic..
Was I pregnant
A blanket of peace
Wrapped around me.
I heard words
In my heart;
"This is you call.
This is your vocation.
This is your witness to the world."
"People don't understand
I look foolish."
A whispered answer,
"You will be a witness to
Life and Joy."
The joys of making a trip to the park.
There are dome creepy looking people and some that look pleasant.
Families playing ball with their kids, couples having picnics or just holding hands while they stroll along, some taking rides in carriages, squirrels jumping around and who knew birds eat ice cream?
I had the honor of sharing my cone with one bird and apparently he went, told the others and an army came down next to me.
As for that squirrel, he used me for the nuts on the ice cream, then as soon as he got them all he ran away:)
Then there are the dog walkers:... (more)
The two most important things we as parents give our children are roots and wings. Producing healthy roots comes first. It's essential that we establish a solid foundation for our children to grow in, learn in, develop in and even discover who they are. Not only do we provide our children's physical needs but their emotional needs as well. All of these things - clothing, food, love, understanding, respect and security, will ready them for their wings. As in a plant, a solid root system provides two functions. The roots enable the plant to receive the nutrients it needs to grow... (more)
It’s funny how two parts of a whole are so completely different. I’m talking about our heads and our hearts. Both parts are very important yet they have completely different agendas. Take our heads for instance. Better yet take our minds. Even when we are sleeping our minds are busy. I don't think our minds will be happy unless they are active in some way. Whether it’s logical thinking or fantasies, our minds are constantly at work on something. Now our hearts seem to have a way of processing things as well but with a far different goal in mind. Our hearts essentially seek... (more)
The power of love is truly amazing. Just a little love can go a long long way. Inside each of us is a vast reservoir of kindness. For some of us, it's not that easy to tap into. The fact remains that it's there and we need to use it more often. If we have this wonderful internal reservoir of kindness why do many of us experience a dry spell? Probably because we allow these pipes to get corroded clogging up the natural flow. If we allow this to happen, eventually our pipes of kindness with seize up completely and we will only experience a pitiful dribble. I believe to keep... (more)
There are many times in life when it’s better not to open your mouth - keeping your thoughts and opinions to yourself. Often we have something witty and amusing to impart but if the situation isn’t appropriate we could end up looking the fool. Times like this it’s important to evaluate your situation and your comment, making sure it is accepted the way you want. Think before you speak. Easier said than done I’m afraid. Choosing your words wisely and deciding the right time to speak are essential in giving your words the most impact when trying to get your point across. In developing... (more)
What lies ahead? What’s in your future? Are you ready to take the plunge and find out? Are you really ready to move forward? Sometimes that’s a difficult question to answer. You may say “yes” without so much as a hesitation, until you think about all it requires. For a moment, imagine yourself at the end of a high diving board looking down. You may have the jitters, maybe even some fear and dread mixed in. You may also experience excitement and wonder. Logically you have two pretty simple options. You can be brave and jump or you can shimmy back to the ladder the way you came... (more)
There's something I would like to share that I usually don't with people. So please, hear me out. I am not a religious guy, or one to get on his knees and pray. In fact, I would almost call myself agnostic in my beliefs, although I do not even follow that to the letter. I think MANY people are in the same mindset as me when it comes to that. But I do respect those who are religious and have that belief system.Well, when I arrived here, on the island of Puerto Rico, I was a shell of a man. Soulless and broken down. I'll spare all of the details, but most of you who regularly read my writings... (more)
Just another day in paradise. Or is it paradise lost? Thought my life was okay, for the most part. Pretty average really. Could there have improvement? Of course. Who's life can't use improvement in certain areas? No one's life is really perfect. And certainly not mine.Like I stated before, I left home at a young age. Fifteen to be exact. Dropped out of high school and moved away. And why is that? Because I met HER. We will use the name HER to protect the not so innocent. I will admit, I'm still at a loss and am somewhat confused, but it could be just me being in denial. It would seem in all... (more)
