Kindergarten, here we come!

I’m sitting here eating lunch and thinking about how quickly this day has snuck up on us, we meet his kindergarten teacher tonight and he begins his educational journey. I hope he takes it seriously and acquires an appetite for learning. He has a blank slate right now, it won’t be much longer —and that’s exciting as a parent to watch. … [Read more...]

Video: The Strangest Secret – Earl Nightingale

My team and I have been doing some professional development training recently and we've had some really cool curriculum. I wouldn't say that I've learned anything that I haven't heard before, but I think I'm able to absorb a lot of the information better now for some reason.

Two weeks ago this past Saturday we received the phone call we'd been waiting on for 3 years, we had a kidney!

Successful -vs- Unsuccessful People

I recently ran across this graphic and thought it presented some valid points, some of you may have already seen it since I shared it on my Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter accounts. As I've mentioned before, the reason I blog these days isn't so much for me to exchange ideas w/ others as it is for me to leave thoughts for my son to ponder when he's … [Read more...]

As some of you are already aware, we had some positive developments last month. If you've been … [Read more...]

Update on Donna’s Kidney Transplant…

The other day I made mention of Donna's "upcoming kidney transplant" on Facebook and my inbox and phone have been getting blown up --so I wanted to clarify a few things. In my post on Facebook I was just mentioning that we recently upgraded our home automation and security system to add cameras and devices for Donna should she need assistance when … [Read more...]

Our Latest Roller Coaster Ride on the Kidney Transplant List…
