When You're Ready To Make A Change

It’s just a game!

Can we talk about recreational sports for a minute? You do know, if you’re not a pro… it’s just a game! Right? In the past week, I have had some free time and been playing quite a bit of Pickleball. I understand, when you are participating in rec sports you are going to get all […]

Flag Day

Did you know yesterday was Flag Day? It’s on June 14th, every year. Has been since 1916. Some of you may know this, but for those who don’t… Our flag was fashioned to represent the union of the various states into one country. The first US Flag was officially commissioned on June 14, 1777. It […]

Summer heat can be deadly

I’m sure you all know that summer heat can be deadly, but with recent reports of dog and child deaths I feel the need to bring it to the forefront of people’s minds. On any given summer day you can read a news report or Facebook post about a pet or child being left in […]

Easily Offended

Why is it that it seems people are more easily offended than they used to be? Could it be that social media has allowed people to express themselves more than necessary? It used to be if you wanted to recognize a special day, you sent someone a card. Now we take the easy way out […]

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 […]
