    Continuing the Struggle

    I'm getting to be ancient or so it seems. When I hire someone they were born years after I graduated High School and some after I got my Master's degree! So, I guess living is sometimes scarier than dying. Given a choice, I prefer to live. Maybe having been in an Army hospital...

    Not Just Exist.

    I joined this group because I do want to live. By that, I mean that I want to truly live-- to have a life that actually means something & is fulfilling-- even only somewhat. The "life" that I have lived up to this point has been virtually meaningless. If it weren't for the fact...

    Learning to Live By Trusting!
