Kindness Springs From the Heart

  “It’s nice to be nice to the nice.”  That was a Frank Burns line from an episode of  M*A*S*H long ago.  Being nice is good, but it’s more a matter of civility.  Kindness, on the other hand, is a matter of […]

Becoming the Person I Want to Be

  My parents always told me that I could be anything I wanted to be if I worked at it hard enough.  I’ve spent a lot of my adult life searching for who I am, forming my beliefs, and trying to be […]

Alteration, Modification, Transformation. Change.

  What does change mean to you?  Does it make you cringe or jump for joy?  For me, it depends on the reason for the change and who initiated it.  If it was my idea, I’ve had time to think about it […]

The Beauty of Fall

  Yesterday I had a costume emergency, so I’m a day late.  Forgive me, please.  Anyway, it’s finally feeling like fall here in Georgia, and since it’s my favorite season, well, I couldn’t resist talking about it.  After a Georgia summer of […]

Can You Hear Me?

I came across these two different things this week: one while doing research for a post I was going to write and the other while working on an assignment for a writing group I’m involved in.  It seemed too much of a […]

What I Believe

  This week, I’d like to first, thank all of you who responded to my email and let me know you received it.  This is still new to me and I’m sure this won’t be the only glitch.  Thank you!  Next, I’d […]
