Don’t Talk Politics for Thanksgiving. It’s that Simple. (from November 28, 2017 – for The Daily Nerv)

(Photo via SEMI-PARTISAN POLITICS) As most of us know, talking politics can cause a rift in relationships when individuals participating in the discussion hold opposing views about any number of topics. People can forget the term, ‘civility,’ a moment after hearing a word, phrase, or idea that seems to trigger something in them to respond inContinue reading “Don’t Talk Politics for Thanksgiving.

Reminders on #MemorialDay / Reminder From @KSPrior

Today, Monday, May 28, 2018, is observed as Memorial Day for Americans. While today is that for me , it is also the day that my daughter becomes just 7 days old.

What an Apology Does! Have you ever thought about what an apology does?  What it does and what it says?  Think about it.  For the person saying the apology with a genuine heart, it says that this comes from a person who is willing to admit their wrong.  For the person that receives the apology, it says thatContinue reading “What an Apology Does!”
