Stripped Bare that I May See Clear

Let’s be honest here.  Everyone lies.  Some tell small white lies, some smudge a number just a tad, some make outright lies about their plans, some lie about their status, their job, their IQ – all to impress either another person or themselves.  None of these things are really of any consequence.  They are merely […]

The Plague Strikes

So… this week has been one trial after another.  It began with an ominous cough that sounded quite unlike anything I had ever heard.  It was loud, dry and should not have been happening at all.  It was my oldest daughter, coughing frequently.

Say What?

Terms of measurement of all things: time, distance, directions and pretty much everything else make communication easy.  Funny thing is, many of the terms of measurement I grew up hearing were MIA in the textbooks I studied in college.  I couldn’t find the exact definition in my science books for just how far “over yonder” […]

On the Flip Side

I am all for the confidence boosting statements that if someone wants you in their life, they will make time for you and the one about how people should want to spend time with you because you’re worth it.  I realize those aren’t the exact words, but you know what I’m talking about – and, […]
