    Always

    Because I'm totally aware

    The Moral Of This Story

    A little bird was flying south for the Winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was...

    I've always accepted their are often different

    valid ways of seeing the same situation whose 'sense' is better discerned by that person rather than some arbitrary "This is the only right answer" approach even if there are somethings that do lend themselves to that approach. I hope in my encounters with people face to face...

    The Other Side... I always take a step back

    and look at the other side. In this case I had taken a step back three times. The first was when you decided to push me aside for another....you had a 5 year plan. I was happy for you...as I'm married and couldn't offer you what you needed. The second was when you went to...

    The 3rd Side

    Because let's face it folks, in any given scenario there are 3 sides to any story, your side, their side and the truth. All that means is both of your realities don't make one single truth when differences are being sorted out. Can you guys dig that action?
