Notes from Steve

I wrote a “Dear John” letter to a company we’ve decided not to partner with. If you know anything about me at all, you know that I am all about new stuff. Change is something I relish and seek out. I love shaking things up. But … alas … when...

Amy's Reflections

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. - Christopher Reeve I saw a post on Facebook this week from one of our ER nurses that questioned if she was really doing what she was meant to do. It...

Notes from Steve

Reflections from Amy

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” - Wayne Dyer My theme for this week is change and challenging ourselves to grow. I had a wonderful opportunity last week to present a scholarship at the Belmond-Klemme Community High School awards night. Any...

Notes from Steve

I’m in D.C. this week. It was forecast to be in the 90’s … sweltering heat … high humidity. I need to do a shout out to my cat-caretakers this week as well. My large-ish cat, post hospitalization (a month or so ago) has not retrained himself on properly positioning...
