Give it to Me Now!

We definitely live in a society today, the year 2013, of “GIVE IT TO ME NOW!” We don’t have to wait very long for information (just google it), for conversation (cell phone), entertainment (computer or cell phone), food (just drive thru), movies (just use your remote and rent one).

Manual Labor

My father was never exposed to sports growing up. Now that he is in his eighties, I am appreciative beyond words of the extreme hard work he has known and done since a very, very early age. Manual labor is something that he knew and did from very early on his life. There was never […]
