A Dad’s Perspective

A Dad's Perspective Tagged with:

I was asked to write a blog about raising a child with a disability from a Dad’s perspective.  At first I thought this would be a great topic.  But then I was like, “what the heck is a blog”? So, after discussing what a “ blog” is, I am like, I can do this because a blog is just like talking to someone, but in written form versus spoken. I can do that because I sell for a living and can talk forever, the hard part is to make it worthy of reading.  I hope you like my perspective/story.

Holiday Exercise? Tagged with:

It is slowly getting to that time of year when we embark upon our holiday fun and festivities let’s not forget that as much as we want to get away from it all let’s not forget to do what we typically do when we are not on break. That is Exercise! More importantly, let’s try to over indulge on things that we typically do indulge on. That would be everything!

The National problem of Bullying and the forgotten population: Students with Disabilities

The National problem of Bullying and the forgotten population: Students with Disabilities Tagged with:

Bullying is nothing new. For years, it was just a part of some people’s experience at school.  Whether it was because a new person arrived at school that didn’t fit in with a particular crowd, or even sometimes it was just because kids were bored with the atmosphere and they saw bullying someone else as “something to pass the time”.

Married to the Chair PLUS ONE

Married to the Chair PLUS ONE Tagged with:

Today I dropped the cap to my water bottle under my desk and thought with dismay, how am I ever going to get that? In case you didn’t know I am pregnant. Which in and of itself is a story for another time. But amongst the many arduous tasks that come with pregnancy bending over is one of them. Especially having to bend over all the way to the floor! Do you know how far away that is? That’s Pluto in pregnancy language. Being pregnant is an amazing gift. Feeling a life move inside you is absolutely incredible until about midnight when you haven’t slept in a week, and your bed has turned into a torture chamber instead of the cloud of awesomeness it was just a few short months ago and all you want in this life is just to get a few hours of sleep!

Dealing with Grief: When Life Irrevocably Changes

Dealing with Grief: When Life Irrevocably Changes Tagged with:

I originally wrote about my friend Stella in an article called “Active and Healthy Aging: Keys to Living Well”, see Active and Healthy Aging: Keys to Living Well.

On March 25, 2015, my life irrevocably changed.  Stella, my 92-year-old, friend died.  I received the news by phone from her daughter and all I remember hearing was “She’s gone.”  Four days prior to that, Stella was going about her usual routines – going to the library, going to the grocery store, completing typical tasks.
