It had only been a few months but he still took the left turn on Booker Street then a right on West Cottonwood to get to the apartment. The only difference now was he no longer lived there.  Eventually, he would break the habit, but not today.

He missed her. He told her...

The gentle sound of bells beckoned her to wake up.  She never liked loud alarm clocks and had purposely chosen something gentle and comforting to get her started on her day.

She pulled the covers up around her body and instinctively ran her free hand over the empty plac...

I recently saw a post online where someone asked people to share an important lesson taught to them by their parents.  I read through a variety of responses.  Some were funny – how to cheat at poker.  Some were practical – save money and pay off debt.  A few were sad,...

Vacations.

Reading a good book.

My almost three-year-old grandson enjoys watching a TV show where the characters introduce new words during every episode.  Each show has a theme – ocean animals, bugs, vehicles, etc.  Recently, my grandson watched an episode where the discussion was about different ty...

There is an older couple at my church that I’ve known for a long time (all my life).  Over the years I had many occasions to observe their relationship and quite frankly, they were like most married couples.  They worked, built a home, raised their children, and retire...
