Another Father’s Day

Do you know what the world needs? Great fatherly figures. Not dictators, chauvinists, authoritarian providers, wife beaters, absent or neglectful fathers, sexual predators, or pedophiles. The world needs to see in action men who are nurturing, caring, considerate, comforting, patient, gentle, and just. It needs to see men who love sacrificially.

One Prom Night

This week, little Missy has her prom night. I cannot quite believe my youngest has already finished high school! For some parents, their kids' passage from home to kindergarten, from kindergarten to elementary school, and then to high school are disturbing milestones. They were not for me.

The Green-eyed Monster

Infectuous Disease – The Desire to Butt in

For some reason I cannot pin down, I find myself commenting, contributing to conversations, bringing up my knowledge on the topic, or asking a mind-opening question. Why in the world do I butt in when I am not required to - why is it now important for me to say what I think? I have… Continue reading Infectuous Disease – The Desire to Butt in

Precious Births

Today, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, a son, was born. Also today, one of my favourite actors, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, welcomed his third bundle of sweetness, Tiana Gia Johnson. Two children who will be raised in families that do not lack financially, two husbands and wives who, by all… Continue reading Precious Births
