Bitter Truth VS Sweet Lies

Bitter Truth VS Sweet Lies Once upon a time, there lived a man who loved his wife very much. He loved her so much that he could not ever imagine breaking her heart. One day, his wife came up to him and asked, “I need you to tell me honestly, do you think I am getting fat?” Sure, his beautiful wife has gained a few pounds but he knew she was not going to like it.

The Golden Rules of Friendship

The Golden Rules of Friendship   “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” ~ C. S.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last>>>
