The moment is etched in my mind forever. I wish it never took up space in my head but it does. And it will always be there.

NOTE: I wrote this two years go on August 16, 2019 when my father passed away. We had a complicated relationship, meaning, I had not seen or spoken to him in years. I share this for anyone who is in the same situation I was. Just about everyone told me how to feel, but as you will see at the end, it is all how you look at things. I chose to focus on what God gave me and I thank Him for that every single day. I hope this helps.

Years ago, I lived in Hawaii growing up and at night, it could get quite humid as you were trying to go to sleep. We were not far from the north shore and you’d think a sweet cool breeze from the Pacific Ocean would make everything nice and easy, but that was not the case.

Through the years, I have been very fortunate to have some wonderful interns come through that wanted to make working in television their career. You can tell quickly who is soaking up all the knowledge and those who are going through the motions.

Twenty-six jobs in 11 years. Yes, I had 26 jobs in 11 years, and that is from the time I graduated from high school until I was hired as a part-time editor at Channel 2 in May 1997.

My mother told me growing up that the biggest downfall of getting older is that you will have to say goodbye to friends and loved ones along the way. In the last few months, though, an inordinate number of friends have lost their mom or dad and sometimes, both.
