Perseverance. I do not believe in coincidence, not at all. I could sit here all morning and talk to you about the right thing happening at the right time and everything falling into place. It’s really not surprising. Positive attracts pos... Read more

The only thing I can figure out is that my appointment with God, His angels and His saints occurs between four and six am. I never get amazing insights during the day. It is only for a host a reasons that when I wake up that early, lie in bed le... Read more

I hope this makes as much sense when you read it as it does in my head when as I am writing it. We are the most well intentioned people in the world here at Spark. We are supportive, encouraging and helpful. If I ever need advice on anythi... Read more

I hadn’t thought about Dave in a long time. Dave worked for me a few years back. There was never anything he couldn’t do. When a job came open he thought he’d like, he’d apply for it. People would tell him he didn’t have the education or the exp... Read more

Joan and I were cleaning out a closet the other day when we ran across a box of old photos. Most of them were from when we were both younger and I was much thinner. When we were married in 1974 I weighed one hundred fifty seven pounds. I was twe... Read more

Finding My Default Setting

I was lying in bed around four this morning and the thought struck me that I really wonder how many times I get off course because I confuse who I am with what I do? I think it happens a lot. I rolled over on my back and started to “define” me a... Read more

One of the reasons I decided to help people as a career is that I wanted them to see and believe you didn’t need to be perfect to be successful. I am living proof of that, LOL. I wanted people to see that you could still have some bumps and bru... Read more

Begining Anew
