I was hitchhiking in New Zealand. I obviously wanted to get from one city to another but didn't quite make it. Went with 3 different cars and only went like 50 minutes worth of driving in total (2 1/2 hour drive in total). After the the third car let me out I went to the main road leading out of town and held up my sign again. It started raining and after about 15 minutes a car pulled up and I already...

Beep! Beep! Beep! My arm swung over to my dresser and grabbed the alarm clock that had awakened me. I shut it off and pulled it to my face to see the hands pointing to 6 O’clock. Slowly I reached over and put it back down. I threw my covers off and swung my legs out of bed. I stepped over my still snoring beagle and stumbled into the bathroom. Then after I was done I walked back into the bedroom and...

I awoke one morning this week, feeling sore and tired, after a week and a half of battling caterpillars that were trying to destroy our beautiful trees. Hours spent spraying the trees and then rinsing them afterwards, began to take it's toll on my spirits and my muscles.

Since I became a mother, I cannot remember the last time I had quality time for myself... Even my simple hobby of reading a book was already a thing of the past. All my time evolved in taking care of the family, my kids, my husband, doing the house chores and of course working to earn a living. Whenever I get to be invited by my colleagues to go out after work, I politely declined telling them the truth that I...

A great lifestyle is a big contributor to improve your health or to your relationship. It should be the top of the list because we cannot think the right way if we are not healthy, we cannot perform our job well and become less effective in our respective responsibilities if we do not practice good lifestyle or perhaps a good habit. We cannot spend quality time to our love ones if we are sick, though it is...

I was particularly down because of some personal stuff that I have going on. As my dad was getting the food the bag ripped and most of our fries fell on the floor. He cleaned them up and we split the fries that were left. A...

When I was a boy growing up, after church on Sundays, we would always have a delicious Italian dinner. My Nana’s slow cooked sauce was the key. In it were cooked potatoes, chicken, steak, and meatballs. Mounds of spaghetti would also be boiled and dropped into the red sauce. We also had loaves of homemade Italian bread covered in butter. Every now and then there were also big chunks of Provolone cheese....

It had been a long day at Cedar Point, an amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. Ruth Ann and I were there with our church's youth group.

It had been raining on and off for several days and the weather forecast called for even more rainy days ahead. The only break seemed to be for several hours this morning so I knew that I would have to cut the grass now. I had several large lawns to do so I quickly pulled out my old push mower and hoped that the wet grass wouldn’t choke it up too much. I got to work cutting 20 inch swaths over and over...
