Christmas Three times I have tried to write an article for Christmas and three times I have deleted it because it centered around my depression, the loss of loved ones and the memories of Christmas’s that weren’t good. I had to slap myself on the hands, sit back, take a deep breath and do some […]

So This is Christmas

Fighting Back, Reading, and Christmas

December 23, 2016 – Fighting Back I’ve watched so many people just give up.

It is “Christmas” Not “Happy Holidays”

It Could be a Wonderful Life

Author: Richard Carter As I walked through the hospital waiting room I glanced up at the TV. The Miracle on 34th St. was just beginning.  I signed in and luckily for us they were busy in the treatment area. It took a while for them to call us back and we got a bit of […]

Are You Going to the Party?

Author: Lori Carter In two days there will be a celebration. This celebration will be held worldwide. It is a birthday party, one that will put all others to shame. It is the birthday of a very important individual. It is not that of the President of the United States, nor that of any Senator, […]
