I am so proud of my son.He has always had a very hard time with reading and spelling.He finially agreed to let me work with him at home(with no one around to make fun of him).He has gone from 2nd grade level to 8th grade level in 7 months of hard work.He shows so much more self confidence and seems so much happier.He wants to continue our lessons.I am so proud of him.
My wife is a first grade teacher and she is strictly prohibited by her principal from showing affection (hugs) to her students for fear of being sued. It literally breaks her heart when a child reaches for a hug and she has to turn away, so don't blame the teacher.
It is, indeed, better to be alone than with the wrong person. Just ask anyone who has been through a lousy marriage and a rotten divorce.
Au contraire, this man loves to be chased. Being caught is even better!
Unfortunately when I was teaching we were scared of showing affection to students, despite feeling it, for fear of lawsuits. Heaven forbid you should touch anyone.
Got my Christmas present from my husband really early this year. He got me a two year old German shepherd that was headed for the pound! He is already attached to my hip, he is the most adorable dog, don't see how anyone could give him up, lucky for me! Thanks honey !
My husband told me I was a 40 watt light bulb in a 100 watt package ... so now he's lying here with his light out ...
My Mother must have had the most patience of any Mother on this Earth.Mom and Dad had 10 children with 2 sets of twins.She kept such a clean house,a great cook,worked so hard on the farm and yet she was always there to hug and kiss us and always gave Dad a big hug and kiss when he came home from work.We were so lucky to have had her.
I was in the hospital for an emergency for a week this year. The lady that passed out the patient meals always offered one to my hubby, who had never left my side. I've never forgotten her kindness and Karma will reward her well.
It is also better to be alone than to wish you were.
I really don't think the older man whose young wife works, meant to brag. He's saying he's lucky to have worked so long AND to have a young wife who still can, while he takes care of things at home.
Happiness is making my first Dinner and not burning a thing.It sure did take me a long time though.Maybe I'll get better and faster the more I cook.
Wow, 41 degrees, windy, cloudy, and drizzily. Wonderful day to sit in front of the fireplace with a good book and cup off coffee.
Let's not hope for perfection this Thanksgiving; let's hope for patience and understanding - whether with your family or not, and whether shopping or not.
Do something nice for someone this Christmas season. I will go to the layaway department at a store near me and pay off someone's layaway.
Milked my first cow today.We are going to buy 2 for milk and cheese.Since it's going to be my job to milk and feed them everyday our neighbor is going to teach me everything he knows about all this since he has done it for 50 years.
We used to call using alcohol as BYOB (bring your own beer/booze). People who drink should observe that rule unless the host specifically states they will provide it.
Well, it may not be proper, but "hotdog mustard" leaves no doubt what you're talking about!
If you can't find a friend, let God be your friend. He's been loving you since he created you.
Think of others this Thanksgiving season...consider a donation to a homeless kitchen. Better yet, offer to volunteer.
Being nice to an elderly person doesn't always work. I offered to pay for the few items a lady was buying and she scolded me for thinking she was poor. Ooops!
It may be a rough winter because our squirrels started nest building in July, not September.
Sometimes I wonder if I made a mistake never having children and it makes me a little sad. Then I remember that God has his plan for me and if it wasn't to have kids it was the right thing to do. I hope I'm on the right path.
Please, please, quit complaining about stores opening on Thanksgiving. If people didn't go shopping the stores wouldn't open, don't go if you don't like it but leave others alone.
God was always in charge of social security. Just not the government kind with the capital letters.
Don't try to change your life to please God. Allow his Holy Spirit to come into your heart, and he'll change it for you.
If you HAVE to have a drink on Thanksgiving, or any other day, you have a drinking problem.
If you have the recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge, please, PLEASE share! My Granny used to make it and it was THE BEST! I think the recipe died with her. :(
If the right took over in the U.S. what happened to the woman in Ireland would happen here
You don't deserve your young wife's love.
