Love and Support

Did you really believe there was a threat?  Perhaps were you sending a message?  Were you trying to make a point?  Your laughing and smirking, and videotaping of our fans (concerned moms, mind you) tells me that you were.  Now, you want a cookie for sending the armed guard home?  Message received, loud and clear.

Who are you?  What are your fears about you?  Do you run from them?  Do you own them?  I’m not saying that you don’t strive to be better but rather realize that you are a work in progress. 

At the End of the Day

Look at our world today.  SO divided.  Beyond that, so divided and having no problems alienating those who just might see and/or believe things different than us.  Our opinions matter more than our relationships.  Outrage left love and compassion far behind.  Tolerance is a verbal weapon and not nearly a true reality.  Open mindedness is a theory far compromised by confirmation bias.  The security of the keyboard emboldens the negative while abandoning the positive.  Where is love?

Impending Doom

The phone rings...what could it be?  What has happened?  Who is in need?  Who is angry?  What did I not know about?  Did I miss something?  Car wreck?  Someone ill?  The possibilities are endless. What was that pain?  Heart attack?  Gas?  Was that a lump?  Is that a...

I Appreciate…

Sometimes it's just good to focus on the positive.  Sometimes that's hard.  Sometime's it really pays off to look for the good...in the bad.  Maybe it's a discipline that the more you do it the better you'll be at it.  Well, sometimes is always and maybe is for sure....
