    I Can Deal. :)

    Dear God... Why Me?

    I have always been that guy to help others who are in need, sometimes to a fault. For the past few years I have been a caregiver to a very sick friend. They are on life support and reside within my home. Fastforwarding... I finally landed the job I struggled for a year to get...

    Not Exactly True

    Raised in a broken home, I learned to hate dependency. My mom made less money per month than the rent. She wouldn't accept government assistance, but she almost expected friends and relatives to "loan" her money. Frankly, it embarrassed me. At 14, I begin bailing hay at $1.40...

    An Answer To A Simple Question

    I just thought I would share how an answer to a simple question that I asked inspired me. A young lady who I don't know answered my question regarding willingness to sacrifice by saying she would sacrifice all just to make someone smile. My cynical mind doubted the validity of...

    Why Not?

    For the most part, I am happy with what I already have. Granted, things are missing from making this my ideal situation, but that doesn't mean things aren't good anyway. I'm willing to give some things up so my family can have.

    It Has Always Been a Part of Me

      There was a time when I did get along with my adoptive mom, which was shortly after the divorce. She used to tell us stories about what we were like when we were toddlers, brought in to her home or what our previous living conditions were. Whether these stories are true I...

    It's kind of a habit now. My mum use to tell me to get the door for a lot of older people or people who couldn't open it. So now I just do it.
