    A Sad Lesson

    Tonight I got one of those phone calls. The minute I heard her voice I knew something was very wrong. "Hi Mom." "Hi Honey. What's wrong?" A sob. "I got home from work and we've been robbed." My daughter's Navy husband is out at sea on a two week mission. My little...

    They Dont Deserve It

    Its why I question karma sometimes. If you are doing good then why should bad things happen to you?  It always happens to me. Over the years, I have tried to be a nice person but in return, what do I get? People using me and a worsening depression.  I guess you...

    But for some reason that's always the case. Most people who are kind hearted die at an early age, before 60. It's always the good people who get horrible diseases :( .

    I wonder why, yet at the same time I know why. I'm referring to why things happen. Now I believe things happen because it's necessary for balance - good and bad.
