  • Year in review: Things are looking up

    Although there is no doubt that we still have a long way to go to recover fully from the national recession that began seven years ago, there have been some encouraging signs in recent days.
    Early last week, for example, the U.S. Commerce Department reported that the economy grew by five percent between July and September, the fastest quarterly uptick in a decade.

  • Give and receive

    The gift of life.
    There is no greater gift.
    And, all too often, we take that gift for granted.
    We just assume there is going to be a tomorrow. But, tomorrow is never guaranteed.
    Just this week, a good friend of mine lost her father. His death was sudden, completely unexpected, and just a few days before Christmas.
    My heart hurts for her.
    Nothing can prepare you for such a loss. Nothing.
