Stories of the Moment


Soulmates, Anyone?

by JCI Mem. Dolette Banzon


Some time ago, someone asked me how I knew that my husband was THE one for me. Come to think of it, how did I know? We certainly disagree on most things. He has a completely different perspective on life and the things around us from my own. And we are like opposite ends of a spectrum when it comes to attitude and behavior.

Being A Mom

by JCI Mem. Dolette Banzon


I was playing with my little girl on the bed.  I looked at her and I could not believe that I gave birth to her --- that she actually came from somewhere inside of me.  A miracle --- such a beautiful miracle indeed!  I must admit that I got pregnant a tad late in my life.  It was a time when most of my friend’s kids were in pre-school already and I am just at the starting line.  Still, it is better late than never.  And I have my sweet little girl to show for it, never mind the difficult pregnancy that came with my age.  And never mind, too, that she came out two months early.
