MOMENTS AND MILESTONES

MOMENTS AND MILESTONES

  It’s been said that life is best measured in moments and not milestones.  The older I get the more I see the truth in that. The more I think about it, the more I begin to treasure pieces of my past. Of course the big events are notated and celebrated throughout the years. We note the wedding anniversaries, the career accomplishments or recognition, the major successes in our chosen fields. Naturally, my sobriety date would certainly apply.  I describe it… Read More

GETTING HIGH ON COFFEE

GETTING HIGH ON COFFEE

  Life lessons come in as many shapes and sizes as there are people. The opportunity to learn can be in church or at the park watching a young father with his children.  Daddy referees are especially inventive.  An argument over a toy settled quickly by a clever comment.  “I don’t want you fighting over the ball and I really don’t want you getting on those swings”.
