Voices of a Small Town

I gave myself a challenge several days ago. I was out and about in my community during the last few days and started asking questions. I spoke with a woman on main street and asked her what our community could do to improve. After she stopped looking at me like I had two heads her reply was simple. Better and more businesses. You see most of our main street does have businesses, but some of the older buildings are falling apart. So for some of those businesses it is a constant struggle to stay in business. ...more

A quiet voice within

I think everyone, or at least I hope everyone, has a quiet monologue going on their head, a comforting voice that guides them through their day. It could be their conscience, God, or some other force that helps them when life gets to be too much or when they have a decision to make that affects more than themselves. Sometimes the little voice in my head sounds like a more assured Me, sometimes it takes on the tenor of a male voice, other times it sounds remarkably like my Mom. That gives me hope that maybe my kids will hear my voice in their heads when they are contemplating doing something they know I would want to know about. I also hope I’m giving them good advise, even on a subconscious level. As to my voices, no matter what they sound like, they tend to speak in homilies. Please read the rest at If Mom Says OK. ...more
