Practicing Quietness

I’m no quiet person. It’s simply just not my nature. And I’ve definitely not been nurtured to be quiet. My family was NEVER quiet. Rarely did I ever concern myself with the height or tone of my voice. I recall, even as a small child, when we would sleep; I could hear my mom hustle…

Not My Virtue. 

I am not patient. Yes, Patience is a virtue, but its definitely not my virtue. Yet. Whenever I am out with the children, one of my favorite  (moreover, the most comical) comments I get, is “you have so much patience! Three children THAT close together?! You must be a saint!” The truth? I. Am. Not….

Order Before Increase

Order before increase. One of the wisest guys I know told me that. Upon first hearing it, I must admit that I cringed. If I am anything, it is the farthest thing from orderly. “I will have order!” Wha-lam! The gavel smashes into the sounding block breaking the thick layer of shocked chatter in the…

It was pretty neat, we were given these adorable orient-inspired paper umbrellas, to bare the relentless sun. During the ceremony, the officiator said something which I have heard my entire life, both in wedding ceremonies…

Resistance is Futile\\Keeping the Image

In a world that is as much oblivious as intruding, its sometimes difficult for one to be true to one’s self. It brings to mind Star Trek: Next Generation: “Resistance is Futile” and it almost it is. We go through our lives trying to meet standards of our loved ones, our bosses and even those…

Faith Like a Widget

It’s been said that all of us should have faith like a child. The direction of this cliche is to tell each one of us to trust our God with everything inside of us. As children, we inherently see the good in situations and people, generally. Today came a realization. I was sitting outside taking…
