Well as we go thru life some times our glass is half full and at times half empty. I have run into a Lot of People that their glass is Half Empty as they couldn’t be Happy with a Loaf of Bread under each Arm !! I have been there too, but always have tried to find the Good Things out of everything, well some times that Ain’t easy either !!!


There have been times when I have struggled with my decisions in Life. I’m looking back at Life in general, I can say I have been blessed. I have talked to people that have said Wow you had a tough life. (Mother died when I was 14, Dad got sick & disabled when I was 15, life was tough as a teenager, Then came  Viet Nam (PTSD) and the effects of Agent Orange, Diabetes, Heart Attack.) Problems raising children (well one) Trying to be a good Dad and Husband was tough too. Working to provide for my family wasn’t easy as work dried up in Chicago in the Eighties. Driving 75 miles one way or more for work was pure hell on Illinois roads, but I did it. I was always Happy to come home to family.

Marti has worked 31 yrs. at Jewel Food Stores and managed a house. I will always remember the day I came home to ask Marti How was your Dr. Appt. ?? Her answer was I GOT CANCER !!! I was devastated as I wasn’t ready for that. I thought our life was over. I didn’t think my Ticker could take it. well Marti beat the Devil Cancer only to come back FIVE Times. Well nobody has the outlook as Marti, she tells me We’ll Get By !!! and we have Thanks Honey  

I Now look at all these as Bumps in the Road. When I retired or got Laided Off after 40 yrs as an electrician.  I turned a Bad thing into a Good thing. I said to Marti we need to turn a Bad Thing into a Good Thing and with the Help of God we did. We have truly are Living our Dream.

Yes My Glass is Half Full !!!!!
