It's not about finding the right person

Someone once told me, "It's not about finding the right person, it's about being the right person." We were talking about marriage, of course. So upon the start of my second marriage, I made a conscious effort to be the right person. I often ask myself, am I the kind of wife I would want to have? Invariably, the answer is no, which sends me back to the drawing board. But my husband, who is the right person, continues to be the right person and constantly forgives me with the brush of a hand like it's no big deal. You can't control other people, but you can be the kind of ___________ (fill in the blank) you would want to have, whether that is a boss, mom, wife, friend, employee, or neighbor. You can live your dream, with or without the support of others, but it's easier with it. So offer the support others need to help them live their dreams and be the kind of _________ you would want to have.

Red Sox

I am not sure what it is about the Red Sox. Listening to Jerry Remy or Joe Castiglione brings memories of my dad working out in his garage with the game on. Every game. No matter if they were in last place. Which they were at times. My dad died at the age of 56 in 1993 and never got to see the Red Sox win the World Series. So when they won in 2004 and again in 2007, I had a tough time not getting choked up. My dad cheered for them and always kept the faith. So it's good to be a fan of the Red Sox. It teaches you patience. And humility.

Working with a few big clients in the next couple weeks. Looks like NHWIB is moving to the next level.

Interviews for NHWIB

I hope everyone enjoyed the interview with Jan Sheehan, Physical Therapist, and the first of four guests during Women's Health Month on NHWIB. Jan is a wonderful person and very skilled. She also teaches rug braiding, has a booth at the Deerfield Fair where she sells canned food (yum!) and she owns horses! Just a few of the things we didn't get to hear during the interview.

Interviews for NHWIB

I had the most excellent day. My friend, who is a personal chef, came over and cooked a surprise birthday meal for my husband. While she prepared the meal, I interviewed her for her business, The Daily Dish ( After my husband came home, I also asked him some questions and then tonight I recorded my kids with their comments. Very cool. The meal, by the way, was totally awesome!
