I Thought He Was My Friend #2

January 27, 2011

Like I said in my previous blog post, I decided to become Jack’s friend.  I had a Masters Degree in Education and he could barely read and write, but I became his friend because he needed one. He told me about all the things I related to you in the previous post over a four […]

I Thought We Were Friends

January 24, 2011

I went to the county dump on Friday and decided to stop and see my old friend Jack, who lives a couple blocks from the dump, and one I hadn’t seen in some time. He lives on a one acre corner lot.  There used to be junk spread over his one acre.  For a long […]

I went to to my niece Stephanie’s wedding in November and they gave us a free copy of the Oregonian at the place where we stayed.  I didn’t read it at the time and then it sat around my house for weeks unread.  I read an article about teachers that basically said that we are […]

Home

January 6, 2011

Sometimes we are lucky enough to receive a pardon from those who should not be so easy to forgive. It is in these moments that I am humbled to my core. And as love evolves so do I, to embrace such empathy and to behold God’s work in our lives, it makes me feel so […]

American’s say they want long and healthy lives: In terms of actions the record is mixed!

January 3, 2011

Image via Wikipedia   The following is a list of notes I took while reading the latest U.S. News and World Report on “how to live to be 100”. I thought it was wonderful!   “More than a third of Americans in middle age do not perform even 10 minutes of light or moderate physical […]
