Laura's Corner

I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.

Unions, Non-Unions, let's battle, oh my!

If you follow my blogs on a regular basis, you probably know my topics of conversation.  I have covered sex, race, religion and other topics many say yet never out loud.  

There are two subjects I have yet to cover; sports and politics.  It’s not because I don’t enjoy them, I just really don’t pay attention until something really big happens.  Actually, the only reason I enjoy sports is because I can go to the game wearing my most scantily clad outfit.  Talk about good clean fun!!

Better Business...

Once in a while, I cover a topic regarding businesses and such.  If you read my previous blog, you will understand that I have been through the ringer and back regarding income.  I am the Queen of finding the best deals.  I refuse to spend excessive amounts of money regarding labels knowing that next season I can get the same item for usually 1/4 of what someone else paid.  

Since I have done my research and have a little bit of knowledge in most areas of life, I am able to lower the price on almost anything.  When striking the best deal, the #1 route would be to go to a private seller.  With cash in hand, a bit of humility and a personal touch will create a home run situation for both.

I Sustain You!

 

What is your definition of love?  According to the dictionary, it is defined as; a strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties, attraction based on sexual desire, warm attachment, enthusiasm or devotion, unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another, among many others.  One could say this happens after a few cold ones or a night on the town.  Sad, yet true.

Double Edged Sword

Stereotypes regarding men and women in the sexual world have existed since the beginning of time.  You may recall a few biblical stories.  One refers to the woman at the well.  It said she had lived a “bad” life, had been married to several men and now lived with a man who was not her husband.  The other is the story of the adulterous woman dragged into the temple by the scribes and the Pharisees.  The law during that time was to stone “such women”.  

Let this sink in.  Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, is brought to light regarding the men these women chose.  If that doesn’t wake you up faster than a double shot of espresso, little else will.

Where's your daddy??

Present or not, fathers are a vital part of every child’s life.  When dad fails to parent, mom must step up to the plate to put in her 150% to ensure that child does not fall to the wayside.   

We are not guaranteed that our children will turn out to be “practically perfect in every way”.  The bible does not include the word fair at all.
