Whack!

My wife is going out to a networking/fundraising golf tournament tomorrow. When I was in the finance business, there was a lot of that. As a teenager, I remember they tried to teach us some golf at high school. I thought it was an incredibly slow and boring game. Then, when I went into the …

Father’s Day

I spent a few hours yesterday with my sister and brothers sharing time with Dad. Last year, Dad had a stroke and still can’t walk unassisted or use his left arm. This is a man that we thought was superman! He still is if you leave out the physical part. And that’s the point I …

God is in your life!

It’s interesting how some will react to even the title. I received a positive email yesterday that had some religious content and shared with some friends and family. We have so little time in our day these days that sometimes sharing something like this sends a message of love and you can do it between …

Heat!

A couple of weeks ago I was complaining that “I wish summer would come” and yesterday I was complaining about the heat! When you think about it, we spend a lot of time as Canadians complaining. It’s too hot, it’s too cold. The US doesn’t take us seriously, we want the Americans to stay out …

Embrace the darkness

And then move past it. We all run into dark moments in our lives. Like night becomes day, darkness leads to light. We know in our hearts that spring follows winter. Sun follows rain. It always has and always will. We just know. We lost our son a few months ago and the world became a very …

Why Mr. Rogers wore a sweater? (very interesting!!!!!)

I had to share this. Captain Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 at age 76 , which is odd, because he always looked to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/34)   His death reminded me of the following story. that the actor, Lee Marvin, is buried in a grave alongside 3 and 4-star generals at Arlington National …

Seasons

I’m just enjoying a spring day and taking down my Christmas lights when I realized this a great time. We are just coming into a new season in our lives. I’m home alone while my wife is out on business. I joined the half century club last week. Our kids have all left the nest. …

Healing

They say that time heals all wounds. Sometimes I’m not so sure. Sunday will be six months since my son passed away. At times, it feels like yesterday and at others it seems like an eternity. Admittedly, the pain dulls but I’m not so sure it ever goes away. What I will say that is …

Friends, the reason for the season.

People come and go throughout our lives for different seasons and different reasons. The people who are your friends when you are a kid are often different than your teenage friends who are in turn different than your college/university friends and those are different yet than your friends as you grow up. Have you ever …
