Try Not to Cry

I've had a handful of emotional moments in the last few days. Not sure what the deal is... But I thought I'd share a video and challenge you to watch it without crying. It's a tough one...

Summoned to the Office

A little background... I don't typically work in our office. I'm out in the community with clients throughout the vast majority of my work day. For me to go into the office is a rare thing. It means I've got a meeting with my supervisor or a staff meeting or a client needs to meet … Continue reading Summoned to the Office

Spending Time

I spent some time with my grandmother today. And I know that will make my mother happy. But that's not why I did it. It's because I had some extra time in my day and was able to do so. It's because I know the hours she has left with us are precious and few. … Continue reading Spending Time

What about any siblings of yours who were unable to care for themselves? Sorry, mom... I gotta say nursing home. I hope that doesn't sound cruel. And it isn't … Continue reading Question of the Week #335

It’s Just…

I don't know... Today is another one of those days. You know the ones. I've spent the day working. I've made it home alive. But I'm sapped of all energy. My tank is pushing past empty and I'm running on fumes. Yet I still expect myself to come up with a clever blog post. No... … Continue reading It’s Just…

Awesome

I was a pretty big fan of How I Met Your Mother when it was on the air. Neal Patrick Harris' character, Barney Stinson, once said, "Whenever I'm sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story." If only it was that easy.

It’s Not Fair

I know... I know... Life's not fair. And to complain about something being unfair is to sound like a petulant child not getting his or her way. But it's really not fair to wake up in the morning with a headache. I mean, I haven't done anything to deserve the headache. I've just been sleeping. … Continue reading It’s Not Fair
