Normal Day

My brothers and I are helping Mom transition into the next phase of her life. In doing so, I’ve touched many things from my childhood, including her jewelry box. It is a beautiful wooden box, the inside lined with red felt and adorned with a dainty mirror. She has had...

A couple of weeks ago, I had to make a return to a local store. At the counter, there were signs posted that read: The whole world is short-staffed. Be kind to those who showed up today. I commented to the customer service associate how much I liked the message, and...

3/23

After my dad died, I was going through his photos and came across a small notecard with a handwritten poem on it. As I finished reading the poem, I glanced at the date written at the bottom of the notecard: 3/23/95. Seeing the date took by breath away; he wrote the...

525,600 Minutes

Today marks the one year anniversary of Team Cadre working remotely, and as I reflect on the last year, I can’t get the song "Seasons of Love", from one of my favorite musicals, Rent, out of my head. 525,600 minutes. 525,600 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes. How do...
