... In my post below I mentioned briefly that I had a strained relationship with my mom until very recently. This estrangement prevented me from developing healthy relationships with other women. I won't elaborate on the circumstances out of respect for my mother but I will acknowledge I wasn't the easiest daughter to raise. Shocker. Stubborn, opinionated, and extroverted, I don't think my bookish introverted mother knew just what to make of me.At the first opportune moment I was out from … [Read more...]

Red flags. Warning. Danger. Danger. Danger…

... We women are a generous lot, quick to give the benefit of the doubt when it comes to recognizing and heeding the warnings of red flags. We become especially deaf to their sirens screams if we very much like a particular gentleman and can be swayed from reason with all manor of excuses. Independent women who claim to take charge of their own love lives stating it's no one's business but their own really do themselves a major disservice by not enlisting the help of family and friends to keep … [Read more...]

I will say it again and again till I’m blue in the face and passed out on the floor – WOMEN DESERVE BETTER THAN ABORTION …

... Abortion hurts women. It crushes their spirit. Destroys their lives. Breaks their hearts. Leaves them emotionally raw and vulnerable. Makes them feel their self worth is diminished.Abortion is not just a "medical procedure", if it were there would be no need for post-abortive support groups like Rachel's Vineyard and Silent No More.

‘The Bachelor’ reaffirms the important role of fatherhood…

... I never thought a show like the Bachelor would be one to reaffirm the traditional family model, but there it is. Nancy French, a contributing blogger at What She Said, writes about one Bachelor's encounter with his 'girlfriend's' father. It went something like this;Bachelor: If we get engaged I expect to live with your daughter in sin.Father: That's not how we do things around here, son.Fast forward.... Dad scared Bachelor and Bachelor dumps girl. Score one for Dad and one … [Read more...]

if you value your life please heed my advice…

... Far be it from me to give romance advice, being the old spinster that I am, but I was married once and have a blog so that makes me the expert.Dear Kindly Male Readers,Married men, practical gifts on special occasions do not bode well. Toilet plungers, ironing boards, and vacuum cleaners were never meant as Valentine's Day presents. My ex-husband bought me all three items one year; one for Valentine's Day and the others for my birthday and Christmas. To his defense I still have the … [Read more...]

Being a single parent isn’t so bad. There are worse things. Trust me…

... Being a single parent isn't so bad. Trust me on this one. Of course I am not advocating single parent households over the traditional model of family, which I know to be superior, but I want women who may find themselves debating abortion because they have no support from the father to know that being a single mother is not worse thing out there. Again, you'll just have to trust me.Right now you may be hearing the typical arguments from family and friends about the financial burdens … [Read more...]
