By Del Duduit Everyone faces challenges. I was never promised a daily walk through the rose garden, although a stroll through a Tim Horton’s coffee shop might be a little better. There are times when I feel happy – especially when I am around my grandkids. They have a unique way of showing unconditional love.… Continue reading We All Have Special Needs
Forgiveness over Bitterness
By Del Duduit Have you ever thought you deserved more recognition and never got it? It’s happened to me, and I’m sure it’s taken place in your life. I’m not bitter, but there have been times I have wondered why. And that’s okay. Perhaps an incident in your life has become an obsession. You think… Continue reading Forgiveness over Bitterness
Breaking the Slump
By Del Duduit Have you ever been in a slump? I’m not just talking about a sports metaphor. When people hear this word, they probably think of a baseball player who doesn't get a hit at the plate for a prolonged period of time. When I played baseball, I had my fair share of slumps.… Continue reading Breaking the Slump
I See Potential in 2021
By Del Duduit Perhaps the debacle that was 2020 provided some motivation for this year. At least it did for me. Life as usual was crippled as if someone hit the pause button on the daily routine. Everyday actions like grabbing a cup of coffee and meeting friends were halted. We now readily accept people… Continue reading I See Potential in 2021
I’m Ready for 2021
By Del Duduit What a year. Yes, I am talking about 2020. Yes, I am talking about the same 365 days that most people describe as bizarre, unprecedented, and unforgettable, no matter how hard we try. The Coronavirus wreaked havoc on the world and brought death and destruction to lives, businesses, and outlooks. School was… Continue reading I’m Ready for 2021

By Del Duduit There is nothing more fulfilling than taking time on a cold winter’s night to sing Christmas carols to the elderly and those who are shut in. Angie and I, along with several members of the Rubyville Community… Continue reading The Silence of the Night
My Favorite Christmas Films
By Del Duduit WARNING: Cheesy blog ahead: With Christmas Day next week, I wanted to write a post and stay within the Spirit of the Season.

What Did Mary Know?
(A repeat from last year -- one of my favorites) By Del Duduit The Christmas season has officially started. And no, I’m not referring to Black Friday. That’s a day set aside by retailers as a real life pay-per-view boxing match. I avoid that day and stay hunkered down and nearly unconscious from my food-induced… Continue reading What Did Mary Know?
Waiting for Food
By Del Duduit Today’s society wants everything NOW. Instant gratification. The need people have for information at their fingertips has destroyed the newspaper industry. Who wants to wait until tomorrow for “old news?” This is just an example. I could give you tons more. I have been in professional sales most of my work life.… Continue reading Waiting for Food
2020 — Enough Said
By Del Duduit This blog will be a little different than ones I usually post. I enjoy writing about inspirational and ordinary people I meet along the way and convey their message of hope. For me, it's more than a hobby. But I want to take a few moments and reflect back on the year I… Continue reading 2020 — Enough Said
