When Do You Know It's Right?

 In many things we are faced in our lifes that knowing when it is right is and can be very confusing for many. Is it the right outfit
or right colored lipstick
or should we have string beans and corn with the steak?

See what I mean?

So when it comes to relationships how it is any different? When it is new you think it may be the right situation for you and you want it to be, BUT comes into play the what's and if's and how's can this be? How can you feel so close and so safe with this person so soon, how can you want them in your life and never have them out of your life. What if this person is not even wanting a relationship?

When do you finally know it is RIGHT for you to tell them YES you would like that chance to see where it could go and that you want to take it one day at a time and grow with it, however you want them to know that you care for them without pushing them away.

I have been in a few relationships and they have all been long lasting and have ended for several reasons, however there can be no blame given to either party when it came to the end of my own relationships. I would rather walk away still loving the person, then walk away  hating him.

I am not like most people. I  give every inch of my soul once I see that is the person I want to be with, and it is hard at times since you never want to pressure a person into caring for you,it will never work that way. I think it can be very hard if that person you care for does not have the same feelings toward you. So it is never easy when you are getting mixed signals from the person. I do think that friendship is vital and open commincation in any form/type of a relationship is a major factor of success.


When do you tell a person you want them in your life......... and I mean when you say want them that is in every way possible not half way in any means.????????

Ok Please let me hear all of your advice, It is your turn to let me know how you feel about the topic at hand.

Do we have to Pay an Exempt Employess who was not at work?

Do we have to pay an exempt employee who was not at work?
I have an exempt employee who was out for 4 days due to dental issues. He worked from home 2 of those 4 days on a company issued computer by responding to emails. Can I make him take 4 days of vacation time or do I have to pay for the 2 days he was working from home?
Ann Kiernan replies:
Federal wage and hour law says that, except in certain specified circumstances, an exempt employee must receive the full salary for any week in which the employee performs any work, regardless of the number of days or hours worked. However, the regulations contain seven exceptions to this salary basis, "no pay-docking" rule, one of which allows you to make deductions from salary of exempt employees who are absent from work for one or more full days due to sickness or disability, if deductions are made under a bona fide plan, policy or practice of providing wage replacement benefits for these types of absences.
As I read the regulations, you cannot make him use vacation days, but only sick days. And since he was working some of the time on two of those days, he should get regular salary for those days. You may want to check out the Department of Labor's fact sheet on salary deductions.

What Would You Do?

What would you do?....you make the choice. Don't look for a punch line, there isn't one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have made the same choice?

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its

dedicated staff, he offered a question:

'When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is done with perfection.

Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do.

Where is the natural order of things in my son?'

The audience was stilled by the query.

The father continued. 'I believe that when a child like Shay, who was mentally and physically disabled comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child.'

Then he told the following story:

Shay and I had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, 'Do you think they'll let me play?' I knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but as a father I also understood that if my son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.

I approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and said, 'We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning.'

Shay struggled over to the team's bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt. I watched with a small tear in my eye and warmth in my heart. The boys saw my joy at my son being accepted.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still behind by three.

In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as I waved to him from the stands.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again.

Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.

At this juncture, do the others let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?

Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.

However, as Shay stepped up to the

plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay's life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact.

The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed.

The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay.

As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher.

The game would now be over.

The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman.

Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.

Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman's head, out of reach of all team mates.

Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, 'Shay, run to first!

Run to first!'

Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base.

He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.

Everyone yelled, 'Run to second, run to second!'

Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base.

By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball. The smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team.

He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head.

Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home.

All were screaming, 'Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay'

Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, 'Run to third!

Shay, run to third!'

As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, 'Shay, run home! Run home!'

Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team

'That day', said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, 'the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world'.

Shay didn't make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making me so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day !
