He Makes A Difference

He Makes A Difference

 
 
 

Every once in a while we are blessed to meet a person that is such a Mentsch that you cannot help but wish him success in everything he does. Eleven years ago, I met such a man.

In December of 2002, I spent a day in the City of Cedar Hill, Texas. I was in town for a family event and decided to spend a day at my new place of employment to get to know the people a bit before I started my new job (in January). Little did I know that I would meet a man that would so change my life for better.

Let me tell you a little bit about this man. Mr. Greg Porter (a.k.a. Porter) is a man who cares. He cares about his employees, he has the heart of a servant, and he will go out of his way to do things for people (sometimes in secret mode) because he is humble.

He also has some interesting sayings. “Don’t get your knickers in a wad”, he would tell me. Such and such will happen when “cats and dogs sleep together”. Mr. Porter is the voice of calm & reason (….well, almost always).

He taught me a lot. It is a sincere privilege to be counted among his friends and an extreme honor to have had the pleasure of working for him.

Mr. Greg Porter serves his city with love, respect, integrity, and humility. The City of Cedar Hill is blessed to have such an amazing new City Manager.

May G-d Bless You and your family and may you always have 100% Total Success.

With Respect & Love,

Sleep Matters

Having a good night’s sleep is important to our quality of life in many ways: Lack of sleep affects our mood. Lack of sleep affects our health. Lack of sleep affects our productivity. I can only speak for myself. When I don’t get enough sleep and I don’t feel adequately rested, my mood can swing…

Brain Powers

I’m on a quest. We are all on a quest. What’s yours? Do you have a clear vision of what you really want? Why do you want it? Are you sure you want it? Can you see it? Can you feel it? Can you define it? Sometimes, the easiest questions have the most complex answers. For years, I’ve…

Alzheimer’s – UCLA Study

“In the UCLA protocol, patients made dramatic lifestyle changes. They avoided simple carbs, gluten and processed foods. They increased their fish intake, took yoga and meditated.

Here’s a wonderful Morning Song that I learned from P’Taah at a retreat in Key West that I attended with my partner in spiritual retreats and many adventures, Joyceeh-Pooh: From the God/Goddess of my being I give forth the thanks. For the love that I am, for the love in my life and the love that…

Beauty Starts With Me

Beauty Starts With Me

You Are Enough! You Are Beautiful! Have you ever felt uncomfortable because of your appearance? A few weeks ago, I had a very uncomfortable experience. I didn’t feel pretty enough. Enough for what? That question got me going. I started wondering about how others define the concept of beauty. I did a Google image search…

Tasha, We Miss You

When we first brought Tasha from the shelter, she would not let us touch her on her head. She never licked our face or jumped on us to get love. Tasha was most definitely abused as a puppy. We felt so wonderful when she started jumping on us and licking our faces!!! While her “sister”…
