A Beacon

When a helicopter crashed in a cold, mountainous wilderness, the pilots survived but were seriously injured. The frozen afternoon turned into a colder night. The situation seemed hopeless; until a rescue helicopter appeared, its searchlights illuminating the darkness. It spotted the wreckage, landed nearby, and carried them off to safety. “How did you know where […]

Anger Control 

I want to share with you this story, it was told to me by my mum when I was small and I think there are some lessons here that we tend to forget even as adults. Once upon a time there was a little boy who was talented, creative, handsome, and extremely bright. A natural […]
