Live And Be Productive!

My parents, who are 78 and 80, decided to trade in their 2 wheeled bikes for an “adult tricycle.” Balance is more of an issue than it used to be. My dad will tell you he “bought it for mom.” Hilariously though, he rides it more than her! They passed down the two wheelers to […]

“…when your children ask…”

Got any mementos around the house that bring back memories of special events? Perhaps a mug from a favorite vacation spot or a worn tee shirt that reminds you of a special event.

Emerge with Shining Faces

Hello, my name is Kari, and I like lists. I know that sounds like I’m introducing myself at a 12 step program, but let me explain. I like knowing what I have to get done. I like the satisfaction of checking off or scratching out a task once it is completed. In fact, I like […]

“The Perfect Spot”

I recently celebrated a milestone birthday.  It was great to have my wife, two daughters and son-in-law celebrate with me; and to receive various presents and cards.  Who doesn’t enjoy getting gifts?  I enjoyed all of the special ways that they helped me celebrate, but, for some reason, my mind continually reflects on a card […]

“How Do You Wait?”

Last summer Julie Rice and I were given the task of making arrangements for lunch for all of the LCS faculty who attended the Summer Institute.  Day one went great.  Boxed lunches were dropped off outside of the Roger Evans Athletic Center and there was plenty to go around.  And then there was day two!  […]

The Long Game

“You see, son, we play the long game.” A son struggled with injustice done to his father. The situation involved personal hurt and the end of a position. It wasn’t fair. How was he supposed to deal with these painful events, this sense of harm and hurt to his father and their family?When he raised […]

What Do You Have Access To?

A few weeks ago I attended the Daytona 500 for the 6th year in a row. The 500 has become a tradition for my dad and I each February, but this year was unique. One of my dad’s work acquaintances was able to get us “backstage” passes to pit road and the garages. I’ve grown […]
