If You Mean Business, E-mail Me!

IMG_0495A few months ago my granddaughter sent me this text. “Hey Grandpa, it’s my birthday.”

By the time I got my thumbs coordinated enough to text my congratulations she was a year older.

The Brass Monkey Principle

shutterstock_138194669Have you ever made the following promise to God or to yourself? “I’m never going to do ‘THAT’ again!” Fill in your own blank for the word “THAT.” Many of us make that promise over and over.
