You Can Change the World

Two days ago I wrote about the power you have to make a difference. What if you could change the world? What if you knew you could not fail? It’s not that the great leaders throughout history knew they could not fail. They didn’t know that. What they did know is that they would not allow failure to stop them.

TV or Not TV

As the title might suggest, my husband and I have made a fateful decision. We have decided “Not TV”. This started when he came home one evening and announced he didn’t want to watch TV. “I don’t want to watch other people’s lives. I want to live my own.” That was fine by me.

Living for the Kids?

Before I had grandchildren, it was hard to imagine how attached I would become to the little darlings (same for my kids actually). I liked other people’s kids and grandkids, but I could take them or leave them. Now that I have them, I can totally relate to “living for the kids”–grandkids, that is. For me, the grandkids, both in their presence and their absence, remind me of my own children and...
