Just What I Always Wanted

Today I talk about a gift I got for Christmas. I'm going to be 45 in a few weeks, so I know I'm “Half way to dead.” However, what does it say if someone gets you the clapper? I mean the commercial shows some woman who sits up in bed and claps the light off. This woman looks, well, half way to dead.

Now the interesting thing is, the clapper is a great GIFT. I mean IT ROCKS. The sad thing is I ended up using it just like the old woman on the commercial. I have it hooked up to the light right next to my bed.

Don’t Forget Mother’s Day

I tell the story of buying a dress for my Mother's 59th birthday. Little did I know that she would be wearing it to her funeral.

Now you may wonder why I would share such a personal tale. Because there are plenty of you who have Mothers and ignore them on Mother's Day. You're too busy to put any real time into a gift, a special thought, or card.  Maybe you throw her a gift card. I'm telling you that while you have the chance to do more than buy her flowers – DO IT. You'll be glad you did.

For there to be a shadow there must first be a light…
– The Mom

Mother's day is May 13th in the US.
