This and that....


A month ago, I was in Stonington, CT on business. My colleagues and I stayed at the beautiful Stonington Inn. On my way out for dinner one night, I noticed a beautiful lady dressed in turquoise enjoying the sunset with her husband. I kept thinking of her all night, I had seen her before, but where? It turns out, it was Alexandra Stoddard. She is staying at the inn temporarily with her husband, Peter. I wish I had the chance to say hello, to tell her that she is truly inspiring.

I love Rose Kennedy's saying, but do my children I always add that life isn't what the "earth" portrays as milestones, but the milestones that aren't publically known, such as moments of compassion, sympathy, and faith.
