    I have had so many good comments about the articles I write for the paper, so I thought I would let you know where I’m coming from. One person told me, “I know from reading your article you don’t just get up and say I’m going to go in there and write an article.”

    How right she was.

  • Is anyone listening? It is a question that often echoes in my head. God created one mouth and two ears on people, which I assume means we should spend twice as much time listening as we do talking. Unfortunately, even when we are not talking, many times we are not listening either. How many times have you formulated what you were going to say to someone as they were talking and waited with baited breath for them to finish so that you could put in your two cents? If I had two cents for every time I have done that I would be very wealthy.
