STORIES: “Building bridges”

The carpenter said, “I think I understand the situation. Show me the nails and the post-hole digger and I’ll be able to do a job that pleases you.”

POEM: “A smile”

Smiling is infectious,
You catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

POEM: “Too true, too often”

“Too true, too often” Too often we don’t realize What we have until it is gone Too often we wait too late to say “I’m sorry – I was wrong.” Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones We hold dearest to our hearts And we allow foolish things To tear our lives apart. Far too…

POEM: “Letting go”

To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone,
but to try to become what I dream I can be.

One sunbeam lights a room,
One candle wipes out darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom.
