While the entire book is really great, (I’ve read it many times now as well as gifted it to friends).
I’d like to share with you my three favorite passages (there is one for every day of the year).
Hope you enjoy them too:
A reason. . . .
When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on. Next!
When a prayer is answered, there is no need to cry.
A Season . . .
Just a quick note to say I have not forgotten about you.
As some of you know already, I have been working on setting up a consulting website for a little while now. All the many twists and turns in my life have tended to prolong and stall, at times, my efforts but I’ve made significant headway recently. (I hope to be up and running real soon.)
So I haven’t written anything here in a few days but, in the meantime, here are some potential titles of things rolling around in my head, that I plan to write about: (no wise cracks about the “rolling around in my head” phrase please. I know that was really hard for some of you. )
>The District (in draft)
>Asking for a Miracle
>Old Friends – Good to hear your voices!
>Favorite Coffee Shop(s)
>Two’s and Zero’s
>Make Your Own Money
>If You Can’t Afford to Tip, You Can’t Afford To Eat-in At The Restaurant
>Radio! Did you say Radio!
>Start Your Own Business – no matter what – benefits not often considered
>Food & Water or is that Water & Food!
>Friends & Family
>The Bike & Marco!
>Thank you Ironspider (www.Ironspider.ca)
>It’s Bulova – Come on, work with me People!
>Free Movie Pass to The Words
>Daze Gone by
>Space Jam comes with popcorn!
>House Sitting – how do I do that – Thanks Hecktic Travels!
To my son – MISS YOU MUCH – LOVE YOU MORE!

Like so many, I lost my home during the Great Recession (after carrying myself for a year without work – overly prepared, or so I thought).
The good news – my family was in a position to invite me here to Nevada while I tried to recover. The bad news, things have also changed for them and I am now faced with moving on again, to ???
While I would very much like to get back to ‘normal’, to get back to work with a livable income and my own residence, the current job market continues to be a challenge.
I believe my skills and experience transfer nicely to areas outside of accounting, if need be, and I am also highly proficient in Microsoft Excel and love to work with it as well as financial software packages.
I have worked as an accountant in the commercial Real Estate (both equity and construction), Bio-Science manufacturing / costing, national Newspaper and national Broadcasting industries.
At this time, I am interested in regular or temporary, part-time or full-time work, projects, audit preparation, reconciliations, general ledger setup, or whatever is needed.
Additionally, I could also be very interested in working for room and board, and a smaller salary, say a small hotel suite. (This would be ideal, in fact.)
Please consider my skills and experience then contact me if you should have use for my services or know someone who does.
For a solid work ethic and an excellent work product, look no further.
Thank you Nevada!
