wall outlet 2

My wife and I have a toddler. Over the past two months, we spent several weeks hoping that he’d start walking. Now that he has started, we spend days reflecting on the time when he was stationary. He’s reached a point where he gets into everything. Anything on or near the floor is fair game. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy that he’s

A Simple Prayer

Boy sanding wooden block in workshop as he builds car for Pinewood Derby

My son Gilbert was eight years old and had been in Cub Scouts only a short time. During one of his meetings, he was handed a sheet of paper, a block of wood and four tires and told to return home and give all to “dad”. That was not an easy task for Gilbert to do. Dad was not receptive to doing things with

Roadside Assistance

Handsome young man calling for assistance with his car broken down by the roadside

Many people have experienced it. And if you haven’t, you’ve seen others endure it. There is never a convenient or good time for your vehicle to break down or stop functioning properly.

Particularly for people like me who are significantly challenged with anything automotive, I am powerless to resolve the situation.

Today while driving, I didn’t listen to the voice coming out of my GPS because I thought I knew a better route to get to my desired destination. However, I was wrong. Very wrong.
