Puppies and Heroes

Puppies and Heroes

For some people, the Christmas season is their most difficult grieving season of the year.

Photo Friday: The Wonder of Everything

When one travels, it is easy to look in wonder at the big buildings, the different customs, the strange food, and wonder, "What is that for? Who made that? Why do they do it that way?"

Dear Lady Behind Me at Starbucks

Dear Lady Behind Me at Starbucks

I see you there, with your screwed-up face and your well-coiffed hair and your impatient gesture each time someone in the line in front of you dares to order one more thing. I was much like you for many years, and once in a while, I see your eyes looking back at mine from the mirror. May I remember that Kindness is Never Wasted. I hope you learn this, too, my Lady.
