RIP Ramsey

Once the tears started…

Throughout the past decade, I spent countless hours walking, running, talking and just having fun with Ramsey, who was my oldest sister’s white Maltipoo that lived a towering 13.5 years and proved the “man’s best friend” adage true. His bouncy, boundless energy was infectious and having him jump up onto my lap and then petting him while he was calm as could be made me smile every time as did seeing him sprint to the door when he caught sight of people arriving.

That was Ramsey’s gift and he was so happy to give it to others. And Ramsey was a genuine hero and we made sure he knew and felt our gratitude for what he did in that specific instant.

Ramsey will be remembered as a happy dog that battled some tough health issues late in his life as best as he possibly could have. It was heartbreaking to see him struggle in these moments because there was little (if anything) we could do to help him. Above all, he was a comforting, joyful dog that showed affection and safeguarded the people he loved and those who loved him returned the favor.

Ramsey will be missed forever.

RIP Ramsey. 


Happy Monday!

Chris Martin of Coldplay is a musical magician when it comes to writing lyrics that paint and transcend the very personal moment of ours that connects us with a particular song, sometimes without us even knowing it. That’s his gift. And it’s one that should be showcased in its various forms, including a simplistic rendition featuring a singer and his piano sans computer-generated influences.

Take heed of Chris Martin’s advice and ‘fly on’ into the workweek with a simplistic yet elevated sense of hope.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this past Saturday was a beautiful celebration of love that was undoubtedly an international sensation. Akin to Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011, the traditional aspects of the day were orchestrated to perfection, whilst also creating unexpected, cheerful notes of memorable improvisation (the partly toothless boy grinning ear-to-ear behind Meghan Markle).

But did you know there was a royal song? Now you do thanks to Cord and Tish.

Well…that is technically a song.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Happy Monday!

In this crazy journey called life, we discover things about ourselves. We learn about love, we learn about heartache, we learn about success and defeat, and we learn about people. And really, is there a better person to learn about the greatest gift in life than Larry David?

What’s that old adage? Oh yes, truth in comedy.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
