No news is good news these days. Why can’t we all just get along?! All lives matter…



There are people who have everything, but appreciate nothing; I would rather have nothing and appreciate everything…

Valentine’s Day Outlaw

Every year we take just one day to celebrate love and call it Valentine’s Day.  Singles dread it for obvious reasons and even couples dread it for having the pressure to “prove” their love.  The only ones really looking forward and benefiting from it are the businesses selling flowers, candies, jewelry and restaurants who inflate their prices.  Wouldn’t it be better to celebrate love the other 364 days if you truly love someone?


How you know

Falling in love is easy, staying in love is the hard part; that’s how you know you are with the right one but the majority of people today get it wrong…my parents got it right

Lies are easier with words than with actions.  People say things they don’t always mean, and mean things they don’t always say.

Young children are not only adorable but also consistent with their words and behavior, as adults we think it is our job to teach but in this case they have something to teach us.


When you take one step back for every two steps forward, it shows perseverance; but when you take two steps back for every one step forward, you need to seriously rethink the direction you’re taking.


Never prioritize someone who doesn’t prioritize you

Fishing lesson

Smart fishes only bite once, so be ready!

That was the lesson I told my little nephews when they visited and went fishing for the first time…seems applicable to many other facets of life.  The second lesson was simply to judge a fish not by its size or color but by the quality of its meat.

Thought of the day

Work for what you need, strive for what you want, but don’t forget to appreciate what you already have.
