Why Am I Here?

Posted on Saturday, March 7, 2015 in Uncategorized

MichelleIf you felt overwhelmednot good enough and unqualified you might wonder, “Why am I here?”  That struggle, and the other lessons I’ve learned over the past twenty-five years at TreeHouse are part of this series called “10 for 25.”

Why Am I Here?

When we feel out of place, it helps to find out what we are qualified to contribute. My StrengthsQuest assessment explained, “Your Individualization theme leads you to be intrigued by the unique qualities of each person.” Yes, I am.

“You are impatient with generalizations or “types” because you don’t want to obscure what is special and distinct about each person.” So true!

The Best Sunrise Of My Life

The Best Sunrise Of My Life

“Today, when I woke up I suddenly realized that the sun had not.  While I could have been exhausted from twenty-plus hours of airports and uncomfortable airplane seats, I had to get up.”

Saturday, February 25th I woke up in Hawaii.  Amy’s dream come true; and since it was #1 on her list, it was mine too.

So, as tears fill my eyes thinking about that I realized that Saturday, February 25th at 6:08am started the best morning of my life, ever!

Embrace Awareness Of The Neediness Of Others

Posted on Thursday, June 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

Okay, how cool is that.  I was just thinking about my friend Jonnie & I was about to write about my friend Erica.

They walked into the coffee shop I’m in, together!

Let me explain.

Jonnie and his brother Nate are in the Navy.  Jonnie will soon join Nate in Hawaii.  Nate will be stationed there until he is re-assigned to Guam.

I was thinking about Jonnie because next Spring I will see his smiling face IN Hawaii.


Yeah, I know, right?!?!

We no longer use credit cards, so a “plastic vacation” is not an option.

Don’t Fear Love – Pt 11 of 10 – No or Low Cost Valentine’s Day Gifts

Posted on Monday, February 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

Amy and I started dating in December. We started dating in time for me to get her a Christmas present. I love to read. I thought I would give her something that she might enjoying reading too. As my friends at TreeHouse would say, “FAIL!”

Someone once said, “the sure sign of insanity is when someone continually repeats the same action expecting different results.” As insane as it might be I have given Amy many books as gifts.

I would like to tell you that my gift giving has improved over the years, but it really hasn’t; at least not of my own accord.
