On the brighter side!

I was reminded once again that life often comes down to your attitude. I flew back to the East Coast two weeks ago after spending a week with my son helping him drive his car to California. When we arrived at the Las Vegas Airport and I had to leave, I was not in the... Continue Reading →

Let the chaos begin!

A little boy runs to his grandfather, two little girls raise up a sign that says, “mommy we love you,” and a young man waits for his girlfriend with a bouquet of flowers.

Second chances

If you had a chance to try something again, what would you try? The Today show and several news outlets in the Philadelphia area have run stories recently about a local man who retired from his nearly four-decade-long stint at the U.S. Postal Service to go back to school at Montgomery County Community College and pursue his...

100 things I love!

I was waiting for my wife to finish up an appointment recently and I watched as dark, gray clouds took over the once bright, sunny sky and a silence fell over the parking lot. A few minutes earlier birds had been chirping and two squirrels seemed to be playing by a tree. Now, you didn't... Continue Reading →
