Four Signs Your Son is Ready for Boarding School

You know that your son is struggling to stay in school and away from trouble, but it is difficult to determine when he has crossed that line signifying the need for substantial intervention.

What Does a Person on State Assistance Look Like?

There was a recent blog post spreading around Facebook about Food Stamps and that is what encouraged me to write this blog post. The post was about how judged a woman felt about using food stamps, because the man behind her uttered something negative about her using food stamps to pay for her groceries.

Yourself will Then Be Gold

Staring into a future unknown. Longing for a glimpse. A glimpse of what may be. Decisions have been made. Why is it so hard. Even when they stare you in the face. Second guessing is second nature. We guess too much and don’t do enough. Never fear the future. Even when uncertain what it holds. Stay true to yourself. Yourself will then be gold. **As a young child, of age 12, I started writing poetry as a means to cope with various troubles in my life. Today, as I face challenges yet again, I turn to poetry writing in hopes […]

They proved to be worthy alternatives to faraway beach destinations not only because of their swimming pools, but also for their various amenities and water activities. If you are looking for […]

This past weekend we had a blast with family time, more posts about our trip on Saturday to Chuck E. Cheese’s coming soon but for today I share with you the video of my daughter singing a song that she just started singing aloud. You see, we were all seated around the dining room table playing with pretend clay when my daughter started making fruits, then a taco and a plate of spaghetti out of her modeling clay.
