Tonight, as I'm sitting here listening to the quiet sounds of the night, I have a question that I have been pondering since Friday night when my job was terminated. Should I contact the company that I was working for and file a complaint? Recently, I've been blessed to be able to post some of … Continue reading A Question Of Ethics
Today, I am going to get a little personal, and I'm going to discuss something I've only mentioned briefly before. My experience with this subject is that when it is discussed, it often opens up the possibility of controversy. The reason why is that it is so difficult to discuss something that is hard to … Continue reading Multiple People, One Body
Wow! Two posts in one day. I don't think that has ever happened before. It may happen more often, at least for awhile. I was supposed to be working tonight.

Even with all of the problems that go … Continue reading A Little Help In Small Places

I am grateful to say that so far, this year is already different. I'm not going to tell you that life is easier than last year. It's not. We've had … Continue reading New Year, New Opportunities, New Growth
