  • Trust and Relationships by Charles Wenzel

    Trust me. On her birthday, Chris took his 5-year-old daughter to the pet store to pick the puppy of her dreams. From behind the glass partition, Adelaide gleefully pointed to the scamp jumping up and down in its cage looking back at her. "The brown one who knocked over his water bowl, daddy," she giggled. An employee brought the puppy to them in a private area. Chris kneeled down with Adelaide on his lap as together they held the pet. Fortunately, Chris' hand was on the dog's collar when the pup…

  • Blisters, Scrapes and Bandages by Jan Davis

    Sarah begged, “Mama, please let me wear my new flats.” “You need to break them in around the house first. If worn too long, nasty sores will appear on your heels,” her mom cautioned. Sarah rolled her eyes in stubborn defiance. “You worry way too much.” Despite her mother’s warnings, Sarah hurried off to school in her new shoes. By the end of the day, she regretted her decision. The reason stuffed in her unicorn backpack as she hobbled barefoot home. One look at her daughter’s feet made her mom’s…
