Race Relations

I recently saw a documentary about race relations. It was predominantly about the relationship between police officers and African-American men. Both groups acknowledged the problem and offered reasons that they exist, but few solutions were offered on how to change things for the better. I suppose there are decades of past problems that continue to […]

Responsibility

The Oxford Dictionary states this definition, among others: The state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone. I recently shared a video of Richard Pimentel telling the story of his Sergeant’s definition, and I love it! Sergeant Parker asked, “Do we have the ability?” Pimentel answered, […]

I love to read

While volunteering at the USO yesterday, I was tasked with restocking the bookcases that had been emptied to be moved. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the title of each book as I set them up on the shelves. I have read some of them, and found a couple that sounded so interesting I brought them home […]

Walk Confidently

Do you ever “people watch?” I do. If I’m stuck waiting somewhere, it’s a great pastime. A couple weeks ago, I arrived early to a meeting and was sitting in my car reading. It must have been a shift change or something because there were lots of people exiting the building. Not in mass, but […]

Choosing Fear

This week we have had our two granddaughters visiting. One is ten and the other is eight. While they enjoy spending time together, they have very different interests. One wants to do something while the other does not. This has been leading to many opportunities for taking turns with decision making. Of course, this usually […]

A message of forgiveness and redemption

Many people are currently discussing the movie, I Can Only Imagine, based on the life of Bart Millard, which was the inspiration for the song by Mercy Me. I would put forth that, while this is a story of an abusive husband/father, the true story is the message of forgiveness and redemption. Jim and I […]

Be ever vigilant

Have you ever had one of those dreams when you feel like you are IN the dream (like it’s really happening), yet at the same time you feel as if you are a bystander watching it happen? Dreams that seem real can cause you to sit up wide awake, reminding us to be ever vigilant […]

Behaving Badly

I have been working, quite a bit, with children who can behave badly at the drop of a hat. Perhaps, at first glance, one might think they were in need of discipline, or perhaps they tend to be spoiled brats having tantrums. Yes, I’ll admit… for some, the first impression might be accurate, but upon […]

Let’s Celebrate Reading!

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. It is also celebrated as Read Across America Day in many of our schools. I must admit, “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” was one of the first books our boys learned to read. It was a fun rhyming book, and not too difficult (after it had […]

Sharing Errors

In this day of social media, and the ease of instantly sharing information with the click of a button, I find it important to suggest that people check the facts before sharing errors. Catchy graphics, and headlines grab our attention. If the subject is something we have strong feelings about (good or bad) we are […]
