Pursuing Your Destiny








Dear Sallie,




AND THEN I READ THIS, and lost it!!! 


April 15, the Boston Marathon, and a day of welcoming spring with your family; it will never be the same. I don't know about any of you, but I cannot hold back the tears. Watching on TV has been one rollercoaster of a ride. There is a certainty in this horrific event...compassion and kindness wins out every time. We witnessed ordinary citizens running along side the EMS, Police, Firefighters etc...just to help...to give aid and comfort. Runners who kept running to give blood; some ran back to the ER rooms to perform surgery! AND THEN I READ THIS, and lost it!!!


"Five K9 Parish Comfort Dogs (golden retrievers) which is based at a Lutheran church in Chicago are headed to Boston. These are the same dogs that have been a stable source of comfort for those children in Newtown. But earlier this month they also went to Wadsworth, Illinois, where a school bus carrying 30 children tipped over." (None of the children were seriously harmed.) "They made their way around Boston Wednesday, visiting some of the 176 victims of Monday's marathon attack. Maggie, Addie, Luther, Ruthie, and Isaiah are comfort dogs, dispatched to various communities in the aftermath of tragedies. They're trained like service dogs, but focus on providing emotional support.


"The dogs work for about two to three hours at a time, and then we make sure to give them a break," Lizzie Brose, a handler for the K-9 Parish Comfort Dogs, told BuzzFeed. "They really do absorb the feelings of the people around them."


Debbie Custance, a London psychologist who's studied the empathy of dogs, explained to National Geographic that during times of crisis, interactions with humans involve "expectations and judgments," but interactions with dogs are refreshingly simple. "[It's] a very uncomplicated, non-challenging interaction with no consequences," she said. "And if you've been through a hard time, it's lovely to have that."


After visiting patients at Tufts Medical Center on Wednesday, the dogs were stationed on the porch of First Lutheran Church - a half-mile away from the marathon explosion site. They were petted and embraced by dozens of passersby. "I saw the explosion, and as one would be, I was incredibly shaken up," said Nick Holmes, an acting student at Emerson College. "But I saw online yesterday that the dogs were going to be at the Lutheran church, and I was like, 'I know what I'm doing after class tomorrow.' Because I need this."


(excerpts from Jessica Testa, BuzzFeed Staff)


I am not the only one who has experienced when hit with a crisis be it either emotional or physical, the one who never leaves your side is that furry friend (the one on all fours). I am continually blown over at their compassion, ability to heal us, and their intuitiveness. May they heal the hearts of all whether in uniform or not, to sit quietly beside an injured soul, to greet, lick, nudge or look longingly into your eyes...Animals are there for us!


That did it for me, where do I donate to continue to have these dogs help others!

  The Six SECRETS To A Happy Retirement, How To Master the Transition of a Lifetime


5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a comprehensive work on living well in retirement, March 27, 2013

Too many books about retirement are "nuts & bolts" -- lots of data. Yes, that's helpful, but I've never seen a book that takes into account the qualitative issues the way "The Six Secrets to a Happy Retirement" does. This book offers whole new ways of thinking about retirement -- and that's sorely needed. Love it!


5.0 out of 5 stars - Excellent retirement resource! March 28, 2013

I have been in the financial business, and working in retirement for many years and have always thought there was a lack of good information to really prepare someone for retirement. It's not just about saving enough, it's about trying to live WELL in retirement. Mark has compiled information from a number of experts to help you do just that. I thought I knew a lot, but I couldn't believe the new information I learned going through this book. If you want your retirement to be a happy one, no matter what your age, this book is for you.
