The Road of life


Sometimes I think about the world and our country, and it makes me worry about my children so much. They have so much ahead of them. So many blocks of life that they haven't yet walked down. So many corners unturned. So many challenges.

My oldest daughter is twelve. Soon she'll be going through some changes, they're already starting. I wish I could just hold her hand and guide her through life, helping her make the right choices.

  1. Juanita, I understand why you might worry about your children. Our granddaughters spent the last night with us. They are so trusting of everything, Jordan is 10 and Kendyl is 5. Whe I tink about the future,I've learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and to lean not on my own understnding.

  3. I really like this picture.

    Change is scary, isn't it? It's hard for me to think that with each year, I lose a little bit of my kid. It's hard. But we'll all be okay.

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand.

File an accurate return and use e-file and direct deposit to avoid delays. Taxpayers should electronically file and choose direct deposit. 3. Use online resources before calling the IRS. Phone demand on IRS assistance lines remains at record highs. To avoid lengthy delays, the IRS urges people to use IRS.gov to get answers to tax questions, check a refund status or pay taxes. 4. In order to validate and successfully submit an electronically filed tax return to the IRS, taxpayers need their Adjusted Gross Income, or AGI, from their most recent tax return.
