“Wake the neighbors! Get the word out! Come on, crank up the music, climb a mountain and shout! This is life we’ve been given, made to be lived out … so live out loud.” +++ more
When I met my husband in 1992, one of our earliest conversations was about the things we hoped to do in our future. We talked about college degrees and careers, about marriage and children, about where we’d like to live and what we hoped to do in our retirement years. Even before we were a couple, we loved to talk about what our individual hopes were. Once we began dating, we were pretty serious, always talking, always daydreaming about what would come our way in the future. more

If you have read this column for any length of time, you know I am a big reader. While I have a huge bookshelf next to my bed, there are stacks of books on my night stand, on the floor at the foot of my bed, and in various other locations around my house.

We need a personal library! more

Troup will soon see that his parents did a pretty good job of bringing up a man who can stand tall in a crisis and can also take a knee to talk to a child. more
Commencement exercises, like holiday movies watched countless times, usually are fairly predictable. After all, printed programs get us back on track in case of the wandering of minds. more

For me, it is the smell of motor oil and greasy shop rags. Or the sound of a fire truck’s siren as it speeds by. Or maybe it is picking out fresh produce from a farmer’s market. All of these things remind me of my dad. You see, throughout all the years I was a kid growing up in his home, he was a fireman for Tyler Fire Department. On his days off, he worked in our giant garden and fixed cars. So when I see or smell or hear those things, they make me think of my dad. I’m curious what things remind you of your own father? more
