Greetings from the Editor:

Not My Husband

Several times I have published poems by R. Harrill. One friend thought they were written by my husband Rodney. To set the record strait, Randy, my brother-in-law, is the poet. Enjoy another one of his poems in this issue. I want to mention again that most of the photos used on my website, as well as the Texas bluebonnets on the cover of A Simple Self-Esteem Guide were taken by Rodney, my husband. Thank you to both of them.

Fortunate Blessings,



What You Need To Know Before Saying “I Do”

By Suzanne E. Harrill                   

Investing in the stock market is a better risk than getting married these days. The 1998 Census Bureau Report found that between 1970 and 1996 the number of divorced people in the U.S. more than quadrupled. Current statistics show that more than 50% of first- time marriages end in divorce, and it is even higher for second marriages. Of those who stay married, many say they are not happy.

Questions & Answers

Question: I read your article, “It's Never Too Late to Have a Good Relationship with your Grown Children” on your website, and it was very useful but I wonder if you have suggestions in my particular problem.  My daughter has been married 3 years now and we have had an extremely good relationship thus far. Lately she has become extremely opinionated and has said some harsh things to me regarding that I should be a better parent and lets me know that other mothers do things in certain ways.  She has even written this to me and asked me to try and change to do what others do...

Positive self-esteem is very important for our general health and wellness as human beings.  Having positive self-esteem is also important for promoting any type of healing, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.  Poor or low self-esteem on the other hand can be quite detrimental to our well-being and even our very existence.  Negative self-esteem can create anxiety, stress, loneliness, depression, problems with relationships, seriously impair academic and job performance and also can generate an increased vulnerability to drug and alcohol abuse and dependency.  On the other hand, a person with positive self-esteem tends to be more motivated in taking on and creating a life that he loves, living it powerfully and in this process be authentically related to others in his community.  Having positive self-esteem appears to be necessary for having a happy and healthy existence regardless of who we are or what profession we are taking on in life...

Ground Rules for Living

Author Unknown              

1. Keep Your Word

When ever you don't keep your word, you lessen your experience of yourself and you put something into your environment that always comes back. It may be as serious as someone losing trust in you. There is always a consequence. When you are crisp with your integrity, life is crisp. Keep your word; it does matter.

2. Avoid Nothing...

Another Day

by Randy Harrill                 

Living seven lives at once, and not really finding comfort in any of them, is just another day
Come closer and look into my eyes, and whatever you see, don?t blink or look away

You will see the fire of hope in them, like the first time I talked to God and really believed that through the force of my will, I could change the world

You will see the sadness of uncertainty, like when my best friend died, and I knew not how to save him, nor how to grieve the loss.

You will see...
