Bloom at Any Age

You’ve heard of late bloomers? Are you one of us? Are you a wanna-be bloomer? I maintain you can bloom at any age, but the age I like best is “late”. It’s the seeds that take the longest to germinate that produce the most beautiful blossoms (I have no reference for this and can’t prove it’s true, but it sounds good, doesn’t it?)

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.

Grandma’s Prayer Book

Did you ever think about the powerless feeling of being confined to a nursing home? I didn’t think so. Most of us give as little thought as possible to this idea. Today my hairdresser told me this amazing story. Her husband’s grandmother was living in a nursing home, feeling very powerless, when an idea struck her. I’m not sure whose idea it was—maybe hers, maybe one of her children. She hit on...
