Amazing Things

I would never bet against anyone with high integrity, laser-focused purpose, and indomitable spirit. To me, it would be a sucker’s bet, as life proves to me over and over again the amazing achievements otherwise ordinary people accomplish with these attributes.

With Love,

We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders.

      Thank you for your kind and wonderful compliment, Mrs. P. While I like to believe I’m smart, there is a fairly long list of actions I’ve taken and decisions I’ve made that would strongly indicate otherwise.

      • Mrs. P says:

        I’d bet the smartest person you know also has a list like that…your secret is safe with me! 😉

          I imagine they do. Thank you!

          By the way, I don’t fear my “secrets” being exposed, for two reasons: I attempt to live my life in such a way that my actions on my worst day wouldn’t be worth the breath it would take to gossip about me, and I tend to share my “secrets” with the world. In those ways, gossip doesn’t sting, those who hear gossip about me and know me know it isn’t true, my loved ones won’t be hurt by a secret about me being revealed, and I never have to fear the truth.
