  • It’s Not About You!

    May 11, 2022             In a society that claims taking care of yourself is of utmost importance, we tend to think everything revolves around our wants and likes.  Just a couple of older commercials come to mind: “Have it Your Way”, “You deserve a break today” and “It’s not selfish to take care of yourself”, […]

  • A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

    May 3, 2022 I have had several acquaintances in my 57-year journey on this earth. Some have been close, and some have been those who needed me to do something.  Whatever the case, I have had the privilege of knowing many people.  When I was young, I was not so lucky.  I was a funny […]
