Add that to the list

The Way I See It by Don West The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) sent me my first invitation to join when I turned 50. I had a good laugh about it as I tossed it into the trash receptacle. Today, at 71+, I am a full-fledged member, and apparently the reason they like […]

Sharing Zumba love at a party to remember

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey When I began my journey to become a Zumba instructor, I had no idea  how much it would take to be a master of this exercise/dance form. The originator of Zumba, Beto Perez, calls it “Zumba love.” It is true on so many levels of this amazing craze! Each session […]

Patience is a virtue

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard While driving in my car, I was listening to a sermon regarding patience as an act of love. I admit, I never really thought about it that way. For me personally, patience really only felt like my own problem, and is a challenge I strive to meet […]

Only enter the battle if you’re committed

The Way I See It by Don West I sit here on Independence Day, ribs on slow cook and visions of an iced glass of tea (from Long Island), I have a good feeling in my heart — a feeling of freedom. I spent a short time Monday with fellow veterans at the Louisiana Oil and […]

Breaking up with Britain is hard to do

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith It’s Independence Day weekend, so I will be spending several nights listening to the repeated boom of pyrotechnics near my home.

Check Washington off my bucket list

The Way I See It by Don West Though the bulk of the trip was pleasant, one can rarely take a vacation or do any traveling, whether for work or play, when everything goes without disruption. Bobbye and I recently returned from the Northwest.  One of the “bucket list” items was to visit Washington and […]

This mom’s thoughts on Father’s Day

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard I was recently asked to write, and deliver, a speech regarding my thoughts on Father’s Day. As a single mom, this is somewhat challenging, as I myself have experienced little to no actual parenting assistance from any father but my own. Playing duel-parenting roles in my family has […]

Digging for the roots

The Way I See It by Don West If Dad was still alive, he would be 104 today. Born June 15, 1913, in Morse, he lived for 70 years, and hopefully God is merciful and both he and I will find grace and forgiveness in the hereafter.  I certainly have the bulldog tenacity that is […]

Every picture tells a story

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey From the first step into my home, you know that I am a lover of photographs. They are everywhere, even in my kitchen, covering my fridge.
