Pay it forward Spokane

PAY IT FORWARD- Yesterday I was in a meeting downtown and I knew I only had 2 hrs on the meter but I didn't want to miss any important information or the opportunity to speak to some key decision makers after the seminar. So after my meter had long expired I see the ticket guy in this little car with lights blaring and he's got a ticket on my car, yet as I glance at the meter it's got 11 min left.... I tried to talk my way out of it explaining my situation and the guy said, Well it's your lucky day, see that lady down there, she put money in your meter as I was writing the ticket, he then grabbed the ticket off my windshield and said I don't normally do this. I profusely apologized and thanked him as he walked away on to the next ticket. So I was able to thank the nice lady for putting $ in the meter and for this I say PAY IT FORWARD TODAY, this week, or this month. Have a great Thursday.

December 30, 2016 is a day I will never forget.  This date will now be forever know to us as Carter's "dia-versary."This was the day my seven year old son Carter was diagnosed with Type one Diabetes. I still tear up when I say or even write those words... my son was diagnosed with T1D. It all kind of happened so fast really. It was Christmas break 2016 and the kids were home for a couple of weeks. Things were normal as usual, stress right before a holiday,…

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Have you ever just had one of those days or even weeks where everything that could go wrong does go wrong? I'm having one of those weeks where it just feels like money is being sucked from every which direction no matter what I do. An unexpected trip to the doctor, furnace/AC goes out, you need car repairs, your in the middle of a home project that requires time and money, you get a red light ticket in the mail from a camera, your child needs braces, your spouse is going on a business trip to Europe and needs extra cash for the extra week the work isn't paying for, and the list goes on.....

Sometimes it just feels like everything hits you at once and everyone needs your full attention....I think I read if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger. Well I feel like I am strong enough! What do you do to cope with all the unexpected stress in your life? Let me know by posting some of your Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day stories.

I'm sure it will get better....Ri…
