Chronic illness
Amy / August 7, 2016

It has been filled with several doctor’s appointments and new medications. When you are living with chronic illness things can change quickly and sneak up on us unexpectedly. It seems that…

This means that they have to carry some extra responsibility at times simply because I am unable to do something and I need their help.

Entitlement and our Kids, and us

Entitlement and our kids.
Amy / January 11, 2016

This belief even extends to what we buy for our children. The issue of entitlement is a big one today, and it is causing many problems throughout our country and I believe even…
