A simple “thank you”

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Remembering to say thank you is something we all should do more. Common  courtesy, right?  As human beings we are flawed, and as a result, we often go about our lives a bit too self-absorbed, too focused on us. My Momma was famous for reminding us that “a simple ‘thank […]

What’s that moving under the tree?

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Few things are more heart warming for a child than seeing a cuddly new kitten or puppy under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning; until it piddles on your presents. Pets can be a wonderful addition to any family. I for one am a huge advocate for […]

‘Tis the season for giving

The Way I See It by DON WEST What if each of us decided that for each gift we will give to loved ones this Christmas, we would spend $1 less for that gift? It’s just a small amount, and the recipient, I am certain, wouldn’t feel neglected. If you plan to give 10 gifts […]

A special one

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Over the years, I taught hundreds of children: some gifted beyond belief, some needy, some charismatic, some simply lovable! However, of all these wonderful people, one stands out among them. I had been teaching 11 years when I met this uncommon young man. Reggie was a freshman in high school […]

Embarrasing my children

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I miss the days when my girls were little. I miss their hugs and smiles as I entered the door. I never gave much thought to the fact that when they grew up there wouldn’t be so many hugs and not nearly as many smiles at the sight of good […]

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH It is Christmastime once again and everyone is making shopping lists and checking them twice. An item on many of those lists is a pet, but sadly many of those will be re-sold, abandoned or re-homed by March or April. Unless you are personally willing to feed, water, medicate […]

You can’t please everybody

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD They say you haven’t arrived until you’ve gained a few haters. In that case, I may have just entered the big time, baby. I recently experienced a milestone that every writer has at least once in his or her life. I received my first official piece of […]

Memories will live on in the heart

The Way I See It by DON WEST Seems to me that we just finished up Christmas past, but apparently there has been approximately 11 months since that took place and the days continue to fly past like a picket fence at 70 m.p.h. When we reach the downhill side of life, it seems that […]
