By Kay Heitsch on December 08, 2017 / 2,084 views

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love, I'm just another decorator. If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love, I'm just another cook. If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the...

A lesson I learned in my life: If you sit around and wait for your life to turn out how you want it to be, it won’t. You have to come out your comfort zone. Take risks. Who cares if you make a few mistakes along the way! It’s better than not doing anything and not trying. I had to definitely build some doors. Find out what makes you happy, get inspired and build lots and lots of...

I Love When They Say It Is Not Possible

By CHS on December 04, 2017 / 2,994 views

By CHS on December 04, 2017 / 2,994 views

For me one of the biggest joy is to succeed in something to which others told, it is not possible. Several years ago i really longed for a certain position, and i worked hard for it, but i did not get. I clearly remember when one of my previous bosses told me: "you lack leadership skills and that is why we chose somebody else." A year later I got a very nice recognition from an organization called...

With Our Dog's Help

It is very quiet here as I write this. That wasn’t the case for most of the afternoon. My daughter had brought her four dogs over to my house. This was in addition to my two. For a few hours then the house was full of noise. There was running, barking, growling, and general furry roughhousing. Toys were chased after, laps were leaped on, and faces were licked. Doggie treats were devoured, heads were...

As we slowly drove down the street on that cold December evening we spotted the porch light. "This must be the house." I told our "Positive Teens In Action" group. We pulled up in front of an older home with the porch light glowing. We gathered up our songbooks, walked up the steps, and knocked on the door. We heard a faint voice from inside say, “Come on in. The...

“Hands on home keys. Eyes on book. Ready. Type.” It was 1980. I was a 14 year old high school freshman and I was struggling to type a letter on an electric typewriter without looking at the page. Most of the other people in the class were juniors and seniors. I had decided to take the class early to get out of taking a foreign language. I had enough trouble with English and learning French or...

By Sara Wuillermin on December 01, 2017 / 2,189 views

My mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's 12 years ago when she was 54 years old (I was 22 at the time). This shows the progression of her disease from the beginning of diagnosis until about 2 years into the disease's progress. At this point, we were already aware that she had the disease--she was trying to crochet more to help keep her mind active, on recommendation from her doctor, so all...

The Wrong Wolf

By Joseph J. Mazzella on November 27, 2017 / 3,023 views

Ever since I was a boy I have loved and collected Native American stories and myths. Their wisdom and love of nature have always spoken to my soul. The one that sticks out most in my mind, though, is the story of the two wolves. One night a wise Cherokee elder sat his grandson around a campfire and told him about the battle that goes on inside of all people. He said, “My child, the battle is...

My husband Bill's Grandma Z. was in a nursing home when we moved back to Michigan. Grandma had been unable to walk for quite some time; now her eyesight was almost gone. Over the years Grandma Z. and I had exchanged many cards and letters. I knew how she enjoyed staying in touch with people. Since we'd moved back to Michigan, Grandma Z. thought I should be her "personal secretary."...

Let It Go!

I was stepping down from the staircase of my office instead of using the elevator with a smile on my face. I don't know why, but my heart was filled with a peculiar feeling. Maybe it was due to excess happiness or maybe I was extremely emotional. This was my last day in my office. I was confused, what exactly was going on in my mind. My staff members wished me a lot of good wishes for the rest of my life....

Know Your Self Worth And Always Believe

I'm feeling inspired to write a post today as the cold Toronto winter is slowly trickling in. Since the Holidays are fast approaching, I think it's important we take the time to reflect on our selves, on our year, our accomplishments as well as our challenges, as we look towards 2018. I think sometimes we get caught up in the fast life where we're constantly being pressured to perform...

This was one of the best moments of my life. This man has raised me since I was 3 years old; and now I get the chance to be there for him. My Dad was diagnosed with leukemia in February of this year. He has been in and out of the hospital, and on several medications and chemo treatments; yet nothing has seemed to work in his favor. My Dad has no immune system because of the cancer and an infection has almost...

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is...

When our grandson Eli was 3 years old he joined the Rainbow Choir. He was one of the youngest children in it. One day our son-in-law stopped in to pick him up from practice. Much to his surprise all the children were singing one song, but Eli was singing his own song,"Ba Ba Black Sheep Have You Any Wool." at the top of his lungs.

When I was 12 I babysat this girl for a few years and she would come to me and show me her art, drag me by my wrists and point at the pieces she'd made during the week. Snd she'd be like "do the voice" and I'd put on a sports-announcer olympics-style voice and be like "Such form! This level of coloring! Why I haven't seen such perfection in crayola in a long time. And what is...
