I hope this new year is off to a great start for you and yours. I was going to write about ‘new beginnings and all of the resolutions’ we make at this time every year. However, just as I sat down at my desk to write, I read this amazing blog written by my good friend Ron Culberson. He says it much better than I ever could. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to take his advice!Read More
A wise old owl lived in an oak,
The more he saw the less he spoke

I first met Joan Brock in 1998 on a long fight from Dallas to Singapore. We were both speaking at a conference there, and with 21 hours of flying time ahead of us, I had lots of time to get to know this amazing gal.
Here’s a quick overview of Joan’s story:Read More
It was a page right out of a movie script…but it wasn’t a movie.
It was real-life, and rarely do we see it played out as we did on Tuesday night when Mariano Rivera took the field in the bottom of the 8th inning to protect the lead for the American League in Major League Baseball’s All Star Game.Read More
Last week I was confirmed on a flight from Dallas to Atlanta…no big deal. I’ve flown this route about a zillion times over the years. I’m sure you’ve probably heard the old adage, “you have to go through Atlanta to get to heaven!” I’m not sure that’s theologically sound…but I digress…back on-point so I can actually get to the point!Read More
I’m a big fan of COMMON SENSE. In my program TUNE UP YOUR LIFE, I talk about 7 common sense principles that can help us be our very best.
Well…this past January, I realized I had not been “walking my talk,” and over the holidays, I packed on 20 pounds!
My parents are safely settled into their new digs in Nashville, Tennessee…and as you can see from this pic, it looks like they are TOTALLY EMBRACING this new “path unwinding” in their CIRCLE OF LIFE.
They attended the GRAND OLE OPRY last night and watched their sons (the Gatlin Brothers) perform…SWEET!Read More
On Monday, I enjoy a long over-due lunch with a friend I’ve known for more than 30 years. She buried her husband a month ago, after giving him around-the-clock care for three years after he suffered a stroke in 2010.Read More
OK…I’ll admit it…I’ve come late to the “BLOG PARTY…” no pun intended!
As a person who makes a living with words, it’s about time I embraced this amazing technology that gives me the opportunity to connect with you.
So…here goes…Read More
At 3:22 PM on Tuesday, I received the text. A long-time family friend Nikki Mitchell passed away. She was 58 years old.
Our loss is heaven’s gain. Surely the angels flung open their wings and welcomed this amazing lady “home” after her valiant 2 1/2 year battle with pancreatic cancer.
She was one of a kind to say the least. How can I possibly convey to you the essence of Nikki Mitchell?Read More
