The Power Of Forgiveness

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. Martin…

I’m Back…But Where Have I Been?

Peeks up tentatively to say hello….. And yes, I know that a few months ago, I said I was going to wind Frankie’s Legacy as a blog down. I know I said I was going to get a new blog going called “Happiness Personified”. But that didn’t happen. None of it happened. So what DID…

I Have A Dream…..

On August 28th 1963, Martin Luther King stood up and said four words that changed the world – “I have a dream.” I too have a dream. In fact I have lots of dreams…. I have a dream that I am the mother of a strapping two and a half year old little boy. He…

A New Month…And A New Start

I wrote in my last blog entry about how busy this August has been compared to previous ones.  Usually in August I start to twiddle my thumbs and wish the month away so that things can get back to normal in September after the holiday season.  Everything seems to shut down, people are away on…

Life PC (Post Curley)

It is now 4 days PC (post Curley) and it is only now that I feel able to write about how I feel.  What I’m about to say may shock some of you reading this, although some of you will hopefully understand it. How I feel about losing my Curley is right up there with…
