If you have a Combat Veteran in your family and you don’t like their moods and behavior around the holidays; please consider these six things: 1.) Your combat veteran has served in countries where people are blessed to receive a tattered pair of shoes or have clean water to drink; he/she no longer lives the “first world illusion” and no longer cares that if you buy one play station you can get a second one for fifty percent off. In fact, they find it hard to appreciate any of the gluttonous…Continue

There are many beliefs involving Hummingbirds
Some say they carry messages from heaven
That they seek the sweetness of life hence their love of sweet nectar

Rain is falling hard upon the earth around me
She seems to know when I am outside in…Continue

Success puts you up on a Mountain
You are what you wanted to be
But are you humble and thankful
For all those valleys you walked
That taught you how to survive
Built your courage to change
And the strength to follow through
The greatest times in my life were in those…Continue

"Its 0400 as I write this, can’t sleep again. I keep thinking about what needs to be done. Sure, we have a plan, ration the water, the gasoline, the food. We’ve been very fortunate. We didn’t get flooded, thanks to 4,100 pounds of sand bags. Yes, I’m…

Like the covered bridges that are all but gone,
so are some words missing in our lives.
In today's fast world, "TIME", is slipping away from us, literally.
So have some words that were common-place, in daily life.
Words that were used to show an individual's character,…

So many tell me they are strong and independant
Yet they cannot close the door on the past
So they can live for today
They refuse to forgive hurts
Dragging those hurts into each new day

A coffin draped with the American Flag was in the underbelly of the plane. It was being escorted home by a member of the military, full dress, carrying a folded American flag & other special items for the family. A passenger in first class gave up his seat for this…Continue

Of battling the war in my head
Of walking with my dead
Of reliving them all over once again
Of trying to run away from them in the bottom
Of every bottle I could find
Of popping every pill I could ever get my hands on

Of where I once had been
Only to find
When that run was over
I was right back where I started from again
Nothing in this world could
Take away from me what…
