Listening

Kindness

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

Several weeks ago I took my twin daughters and my niece out for lunch at a small town cafe. As a Dad you always hope your kids mind their manners. So it was nice to hear Annie and Emma say “please” and “thank you” without being prompted. When our server left to go get our beverages Annie asked, […]

Overheard

Wednesday, December 21st, 2005

Here in the Phoenix valley, conveniences abound. Drive three minutes in any direction from my house and you’ll find a Target, Wal-Mart, Costco, Home Depot, Discount Tire, and numerous large grocery stores.

Without A Word

Last February I took my Dad to a Phoenix Suns game. We had a great time even though the Chicago Bulls weren’t the toughest opponent. When you go to a game with your Dad, it doesn’t really matter who’s playing. Early in the 2nd quarter, a young family showed up to occupy the empty seats […]
