Best year ever

I was taking a walk the other day as I do most every morning. As I passed two ladies coming toward me, I heard one of them say, “Best year ever?

The gift of acceptance

Aimee and John were arguing even as they entered my counseling office. Aimee announced, “I just found out John’s been smoking again. I can’t believe it. What’s wrong with him?” It was John’s turn to blast Aimee. “She treats me like I’m 15 years old. I know smoking is not good for me. I don’t smoke in the house and I don’t smoke when I’m around…
