  • Life is about relationships

  • Lizards and other things ...

    When I was a kid, one of my brothers caught a little lizard in the tobacco field.  Being about 5, I did not have to work in the hot sun.

    Instead, I stayed under a wagon, playing with that little lizard in his mayonnaise jar with holes in the lid and grass for a bed and hidey hole.  I played with him all day, pestering it ad infinitum.  When my brother first caught him, he had a long tail.  By the end of the day—he barely had a stub left.  He had eaten his own tail.

  • Kind, gentle man, taught me about life

    You know how you keep putting off things today because you’re just sure that you’ll have time to get to them tomorrow or next week even?

    I’m guilty of that, as we all are, but I’m also more convinced than ever that certain things cannot and should not be put off, even for a few hours.

    Telling the special people in your life how much they mean to you is one of those things.

    I remember clearly where I was last year on Father’s Day. I was sitting at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood talking to my dad.
