I love when my kids receive awards

What parent doesn’t?

I enjoy having my children recognized. It fills them with joy (even if they sometimes don’t show it) and it makes me feel wonderful.

Of course I’m happy for them.

Further, I am happy for myself (and my wife, naturally). We must be doing something right. 🙂

Even though our children shouldn’t necessarily be so, they are our extension, our legacy.

If nothing else, they are what we leave behind after we are gone.

I’m proud of that.

I love the colors that people where in spring

I love the spring dresses, the pastel colored shirts. I love the color that they bring to any environment!


I love to meet people who talk about their passions

I love to hear the pain in their voice for something they really believe in.

For example, I met a lady today at a Toastmasters meeting that is passionate about teaching sex education to religious groups. She has a sincere interest in helping others with what many church goers still believe is a taboo subject.

I know she will do well and get the word out there. I wish her the best of luck!

I love to run the morning after an evening rainfall

The air is moist.

The grass is wet.

The temperature is cool.

Such a marvelous experience!

I love my past experience in the US Army

22 years ago today, Feb 2, I joined the Army. I look back and have no regrets for making that decision. I learned so much, met several lifelong friends and met my wife because of this decision.

Little did I know at the time that I joined that the Army experience would be extremely valuable for everything else I was to do in the future.

Thank you for the opportunity! I would definitely do it again.

I love to run barefoot through puddles

It is such an awesome feeling to feel the water splash around your feet.

It’s liberating. Try it sometime.

And if you don’t run, then jog. If you don’t jog, then walk!

Step in puddles and enjoy!

I love to personally connect with interviewers

I love to personally connect with interviewers.

I enjoy when they touch on interesting personal facts about themselves. I get to learn a little more about them and what makes them tick. It helps me frame forthcoming answers better.

This also gives me an opportunity to share some personal tidbits about myself so that they can get to know me a little better and understand my way of thinking.

It’s about the personality connection. It is more likely that someone will work well with someone they seem to like as a person. I try to find likable traits in others and in turn, I think I become more likable as well.

This does not mean that I will like everyone and everyone will like me, but when it happens, all the better!
