This week we would like to expose the term HURT, and as usual we’ll define it by the Merriam-Webster definition: to suffer pain or grief. Getting older, I decided that I had better start fighting the battle of the bulge more vigorously. I got the ingenious idea to ride my bicycle while walking my 115 […]

This week we would like to expose the the term LIFE.  Merriam-Webster’s dictionary has the ability to provoke a fit in me as I read the definitions.  Words can inspire if given a moment to clarify.   LIFE as defined by one of Merriam-Webster multiple descriptions means a specified period of animate and inanimate existence.  A car […]

This week we will barely scrape the surface of the term SUCCESS.  I actually love Merrian-Webster’s definition so we will use it. SUCCESS: the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors. The only thing that I would question would be whether or not it should be “termination of attempts”.  A successful Mother doesn’t stop […]

The SSTMT team has decided the word for this week would be IMMINENT. IMMINENT as defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary would imply negative connotations of impending doom. I choose to believe that for every negative there is a positive. The diametrical position of doom would be an overwhelming success. If I do my due diligence, success […]

Welcome to, every week we choose a single word and explore the definition. We discuss how it might impact our lives. We have chosen a word this week that has such a wide variance of definitions that we couldn’t agree on one approach but agreed that the spirit of the word should be discussed. […]

February 19, 1938 marks the birthdate of the late great Alva Hamilton Echols.  She was both mother and father to me and my siblings and at the heart of her actions were love and devotion to a better life for her children. So she instilled in us above all others OBEDIENCE. Since I can remember […]

This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day and I tend to favor this day because it offers us the ability to express an emotion that we can hardly live without. The word this week is LOVE. There are many types of love and the most pure is agape which can only derive from GOD. Merriam Webster […]

This being the week before Valentine’s Day, where we profess our love to everyone we hold dear. I thought it only fitting to discuss the place where I first learned love. That place is the family. Merriam Webster’s Dictionary roughly defines it as a group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one […]

                           I would like to go right into the word this week as it can be a troublesome topic. The word this week is “DEDICATED”. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines it as a self-sacrificing devotion. While in the service to this great country I was a Parachute Rigger and I learned just what it meant to be […]

This week I would like to discuss something that everyone has desired at some point in their lives. Some never seem to acquire it, while most are in possession of it mildly during different spurts of time throughout their tenure on this watery rock we call Earth. The word this week is PEACE. Many may […]
