The Cut – Ouch!

So many times I have mentioned that I am no Martha Stewart.  Well, last evening I confirmed that to myself yet one more time. Some Background As you know there have been several people in my life who have recently been diagnosed with cancer.   One of which is a close family member.  Now cancer does not run in my family, however, I do think that the lifestyle of an individual can break the body down to a weakened state so that it may...

A Bad Egg

It’s Sunday morning.  A beautiful day.   Sunday’s are a relaxing day for me.  It’s my day do some laundry, do some house cleaning, maybe even mow the lawn.  (Funny as I wrote that it doesn’t sound too relaxing.)  🙂 Part of my Sunday’s include making a nice breakfast for myself and today was no exception.  I decided to poach a couple of eggs and have blueberry waffles.

Your Word Is Your Bond

Yesterday I was listening to a audio clip from Zig Ziglar on keeping your word.  Something Zig said during the talk was “If your word is no good you are no good.”  When I first heard that I thought it was a little harsh, but after I thought about it a bit I realized he was right on. The only thing we are known for in this world is our character and part of character, actually the biggest part, is your “word.” We have all met someone...

I Just Need Someone To Listen To Me

Have you ever been so distraught over something that you would tell your issue to total stranger? Maybe you have been so angry you ended up writing a blog post that tells the whole world about who did you wrong. In this day and age  people are so busy they don’t have time to really listen to the people they love or those who love them. Social media has taken over as the primary means of communication for many. Many no longer have...
