Tattling

This has been on my mind since my daughter was accused by one of her playmates of being a tattletale because she came to me to help her address bullying and name-calling that was happening while she and some neighbors were playing outside.

Death, Where Is Your Sting?

There need not be fear or sadness surrounding death. It’s the perfectly beautiful shedding of the body and release of the soul.
