With the slim condom still clenched tightly in his fist, Joshua followed Keisha into the room before closing the door behind them. But as distance separated them for a moment it made him curious once again about her sudden interest in him, especially in regards to this matter. What had changed between them? Why would she now show interest? Any interest? Especially in such an overwhelmingly sensual and unexpected way?

This reason alone plays a huge role in the decision to home school a child. Another reason is the fact, it is usually the mother who is at home with the children.

Do you want a live-in nanny, day time nanny, full-time, part-time or on call? What is your budget? Will you want the nanny to clean the house, cook meals or transport your children to after school activities or play dates? What other responsibilities are you looking for in a nanny?

Because of my goodbyes I look at the new people that come into my life in a whole new light. I wonder why I have met them, what I can learn from them, and how can I make a difference in their lives? I always ask, “Why has God brought this person to me?” when I meet someone new. Nothing happens by accident. I look forward to where this new relationship will take me. I want to add value to the time spent with people in my life. I want to leave a loving legacy behind me. I do not want to live my life thinking about what I could have, would have or should have done!

As a parent set a good example and don’t smoke. Remember the chances of your child lighting up greatly diminish if the parents or care-givers are non-smokers.
