I was digging through some old docs in my computer and found one titled “A Promise to Myself.”  What the heck would that be?  I opened it and was blessed by the words.  I obviously read this somewhere and loved it so much the first time that I copied it and saved it.  But, I… Continue reading Promise

A woman had lost her friend, and she was reaching out online to ask how to deal with grief.  On reddit.com, she wrote, “My friend just died.  I don’t know what to do.”  While she received many answers and a… Continue reading An Old Guy on Grief
