    One Of The Things I Love Most About My Job

    .......is the power that I have to make a difference to many people with so little effort. I am conscious of being able to do that just by smiling as I approach them when they come for service, by making them feel welcome, by helping them find something they cannot locate, by...

    A Single Tree In The Meadow

    Have you ever looked out at a beautiful meadow under a clear blue sky on a summer's day? You see the wind pushing through the grasses and the wildflowers waving their petals in laughter. Bees and butterflies here and there are busy with their daily tasks. I imagine myself as a...

    Teaching The Dance By Example

    When I first started working for my Dad last summer it was during the busiest part of the season for him. He owns a ready mix/ precast/ rental business and when spring hits he's busy until the weather turns in the fall. He offered me a job because I needed it after I told my ex I...

    Transfiguration

    I look at that word in the title, transfiguration, and what do i see? I see the ability for someone to do something better. I was never told I was the prettiest guy, or the smartest, the skinniest, the most talented, and most of all I was never the most exciting guy to be around...

    Just One..

    It only takes one person to completely change someone's life. One person, one moment, can make the biggest difference. They have the power to turn everything around. Inspiration is a very strong thing.

    Two In This Case.....

    Lighthouse

    In pitch darkness a single candle can be seen for miles.  A single, simple act of kindness can change the world for someone.  We never know how far our kindnesses reach, how far our light is seen.  Be a lighthouse.

    In Themselves Especially

    Does it really matter beyond yourself? It shouldn't, don't you agree? For some of us, the greatest difference we can make is within ourselves first, only then can we look to make a difference outside of our own little world.

    I Hope I'm More Than A White Pawn

    One Man Army

    It has been proven many times in the course of human history, that one man can make a difference. However, it has been proven both positively, and negativily. Dr. Martin Luther King J.R., he was just one man, but that was all it took to make a difference. Thanks to that one man...

    It really only takes one person with an idea for change to make a difference. That one person coming up with an idea, and then doing what they can and getting the help they need to make it happen is all that is needed. Small changes or big, it all starts with one person. A lot of...
