I want, I want, I want…

Every month I am doing a “co-op” post with a few other bloggers. We are all writing about the same topic with different points of view. There will be a link to the other posts at the end. Now on with the show. As parents, we attempt to teach our kids lessons in life. Sometimes they sink in and other times not. I have been trying to teach my son about how he can be whatever he wants to be when he grows up, but it will require hard work. I am trying to instill in him a drive to

How to eat an elephant…bite, chew, swallow, repeat.

How to eat an elephant…bite, chew, swallow, repeat.

I recently went camping with a friend of mine. It was a cool Thursday afternoon in Florida. I had packed up my equipment, firewood, and food and drove out to the campsite in Princess Place Preserve. As I began to unload the firewood from my S.U.V. , I noticed the sky turning dark. The wind began to pick up and the temperature dropped several degrees.

Dear Chris…

While doing research on my recent post “Men don’t cry”. I asked my dad why I never saw him cry. He said that he has cried in the past, he hid it, so that my brother and I didn’t see. I asked him to think about it and let me know his thoughts. The men don’t cry article was posted on Saturday. My dad was busy and unable to respond before the post went out. This afternoon I opened my email to find a response from my dad. I immediately called my dad and asked him if I could post
