  • New Year’s resolutions or how others should improve

    2010 is nearing its end and a lot of people at the end of any year make a list of changes or improvements that they hope to make for the New Year.
    I am going to list some sports related changes that I would like to see along with some others that I would like to make for me and others.

  • Lest I forget: Nothing is impossible with God

    I have been blessed with a terrible memory.
    It’s a blessing because I don’t remember things that haunt other people with better memories. I can’t remember most of the fights I’ve had with my husband or kids or hurtful things people have said or done.
    However, I also can’t remember people’s names or my passwords and PINs or what I went into the kitchen to do or came to the store to buy.
