Our Grandparents

Grandparents have a way of bringing unity to the family. Either it is through daily phone calls to weekly meals, it was about spending time together.  There is the chance to teach family values, instill ethnic heritage, and to pass on those traditions to family members so that they can be carried on.

Time Flies

Often I hear so many people ask the question: “where does the time go?” It’s not an unusual question, especially with so many graduations taking place during this time of year. I often have to hold myself back from saying what is really on my mind, “time didn’t just slip away, you allowed yourself to become too busy.” I think that this is very true. We’ve trained ourselves to keep our lives filled to the brim with work, errands, and chores. It’s easy to understand why many feel that time has slipped away from them.

Finding Home

Common interests that bring people together, stressful situations, shared values, and having the ability to support and encourage another person is what draws people together. It’s what brings us to make friends and to be worthy of being called a friend.

One of the hardest things that I found is not being able to have control over everything in life. It’s not the circumstances that get to me, but people and their actions that tends to be the hardest. There is that fear that by losing control, than something bad could happen. A bad review, an argument, or not getting the relationships that you want in life.

Great Expectations

Have you ever met someone that instantly you clicked with them, but over time that relationship just seemed to disappoint you? It could be anyone, a family member, a relationship, a friendship; no matter the type of relationship it is, there was still something about it that just doesn’t seem to work out. Maybe they…

Relationships Come and Go

Relationships come and go into our lives. Someone once told me these words, but I didn’t understand the meaning until now. Depending where we are in life, there are people who stay for a long period time- say a lifetime because we need them; while others may stay for a short time. Although losing a…
