  • Heaven's Surprising Policy On Pets

    Author Susan Macaulay

    Heaven's Surprising Policy On Pets A woman and her dog were walking along a road. The woman was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to her that she was dead.
    She remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside her had been dead for years. She wondered where the road was leading them.
    After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble... At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

    When she was standing before it she saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.
    She and the dog walked toward the gate, and as she got closer, she saw a woman at a desk to one side. When she was close enough, she called out, “Excuse me, where are we?”

  • An inspirational story of a daughter who helped her Mom go to college

    Author Susan Macaulay

    I frequently turn to online friends and fans with questions. I posed these questions to the Amazing Women Rock FB community:

    Dear mothers and daughters: I'm often told I'm a "good" daughter. I know it's meant as a compliment when people say it, but I'm not exactly sure what it means.

    How do you define a "good" daughter? What does it mean to be one? What do "good" daughters do that bog standard ordinary daughters don't do and vice versa?

    Is there such a thing as a "bad" daughter? What would a bad daughter do that a good daughter wouldn't and vice versa?
