I’m Done

Going through the paces Crying in my heart. But what do I do But smile in their faces. I want to lay down For some eternal rest. What’s the point In making me frown? Take me to my Home End my constant pain Don’t make me suffer I’m completely done.


I stand at the door Everyone must pass through, To everything I want, Peace, health, love and more. All I have to do Is walk on through But yet, I hesitate, My years have been few. What will I gain Is so much more Than anything I lose, Total health, no pain. The world is […]


Drifting on a cloud of peace Away from noise and heat; Lifted to the heights of love I feel as free as a dove.   Crashing to the ground below My heart and soul feel the blow; Sinking way down to the pit, My stomach has taken a hit.   Drifting, Crashing, Drifting Blow after […]


When you have a chronic illness, you also have a very close relationship with depression.  It gets even more challenging to separate the physical illness from the mental illness.  Where does the body’s defect end and the mental defect begin? There have been many times that I have been so sick I couldn’t get up […]


Today is a sad day.  My grandfather, known by all the grandkids as Papa, passed away today, December 29, 2013.  I remember him as a big man who always made me happy, even though he was not one to make people happy.  He was always bigger than life to me and I loved him so […]

Christmas and Santa 2012

I remember as a child, on Christmas Eve, my grandparents would come over and we would all pile into a car (seat belts were not an issue back then) and go see the lights while one or more of the adults stayed home to let Santa into the house as we didn’t have a chimney. […]


It is Easter Sunday.  What does that mean?  For most people it means hunting Easter eggs and spending time with family.  For Christians, it is a time to celebrate the sacrifice that Christ made for us. After being betrayed by Judas, Jesus was sentenced to death for calling himself the Son of God and he […]

Sick Leave Policy



No excuses… We will no longer accept your doctor’s statement as proof. We believe that if you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.


We are no longer allowing this practice. We wish to discourage any thoughts that you may need an operation. We believe that as long as you are an employee here, you will need all of whatever you have and should not consider having anything removed. We hired you as you are, and to have anything removed would certainly make you less than we bargained for.


*Other than your own:

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for them, and we are sure that someone else can attend to the arrangements. However, if the funeral can be held in the late afternoon, we will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently let you leave 1 hour early, provided your share of the work is ahead enough to keep the job going in your absence.

*Your own:

This will be accepted as an excuse. However, we require at least two weeks notice as we feel it is your duty to train your replacement.


Entirely too much time is being spent in the restroom. In the future, we will follow the practice of going in alphabetical order. For instance, those whose names begin with “A” will go from 8:00-8:15, and so on. If you’re unable to go at your time, it will be necessary to wait until the next day when your time comes again.

We appreciate your cooperation,
