I will continue to make that mistake.

Only a fool would make such a statement! Right? Honestly, I am wondering if I should leave that first sentence as is or if I should massage it just a bit. You see Frank Stepnowski is a large man who could crush me like a grapefruit if he wanted. Lucky for me Frank is also a kind and forgiving man with a great sense of humor

This was apparent when Frank and I recorded an episode for My Bad. For reasons beyond our control, the interview had to be pushed back about an hour. Since I hadn’t connected with Frank before, I decided to call him at our original time in an attempt to build some repertoire. We ended up talking for almost an hour, as if we were old friends catching up on lost time.

We all have people in our lives that we connected with right away. Maggie Bolado was one of those people for me. We have never met in person, but I feel as if I know her better than I know people that I see every day. My guess is that it is because we share the same unwavering love for children. Our own and the ones that we serve.

Maggie is the type of person that has the uncanny ability to find the perfect quote or just the right lyric that resonates with her PLN. She somehow knows who to tag each time she sends these gems out. Her most recent quote to kick off 2017 was wonderful.

Welcome To Flight 2017

We are prepared to take off into the “New Year”. Make sure you attitude and blessings are secured and locked in an upright position. All negative and self-destructive devices must be turned off at this time. Should we lose altitude under pressure during the flight, reach up and pull down a Prayer. Prayers will automatically be activated by faith. Once your Faith is activated you will be able to assist other passengers.

He-Was-In-The-Room.png

At that moment, there was nowhere else on the entire planet that I wanted to be and nothing more important than sitting on that dirty-disgusting bathroom floor.

When she shared that her dad was in the room with us at that very moment I couldn’t believe my ears. Her photo, her story, the moment became so much more powerful than it already was. The fact that she was able to retrieve such an old photograph was amazing. It must have been at least twenty years old. How could she possibly have that so readily at her disposal?

Let me backtrack a little bit to give some context. I got a little bit ahead of myself. To be quite honest, I wanted to pique your interest without giving away too much. But you’ve read this far, so I guess it’s time you know.

Oftentimes, when I present on blogging, I ask participants to email me photographs that are meaningful to them. Then I put the photos up on the screen and have them go into more detail. By the end of the exercise, participants have usually spoken somewhere between four hundred to a thousand words. In other words, enough to generate a blog piece.

Even if we can’t carry the load all the way, we’re going to take our crack at picking

up the heavy end.
