BECOMING A HERO ON MEMORIAL DAY

Although we traditionally honor the brave men and women that have fought to protect our rights for freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, I have begun wondering if these heroes wouldn’t want (and even expect) us to strive to become heroes in our own right? What better way to honor their sacrifices than to […]

SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS

As I was looking out my bedroom window witnessing another beautiful start to a beautiful day, I began to think about the different things I WANTED TO DO TODAY! As I heard my little beagle (Tucker) snoring away, I thought about taking him for a walk on a trail in the local park. Although I […]

Harry Chapin wrote a song called, “Cats In The Cradle” in 1974. It described a father and son’s relationship  from birth to old age.

DO DOCTORS HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR?
