Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

 

In the past I’ve never been much of a believer in writing down my goals or making them for that matter. It all seemed a little woo-woo and out there. However in 2012 I worked with a wonderful organizer and business coach Paris Love (www.parisloveinstitute.com) who convinced me of the importance of setting goals.

Where did Bo go?

Where did Bo go?

After a tornado decimated her Monroe County neighborhood last year, Wendy Veal and her husband, along with several neighbors, began the long process of rebuilding. Not all of the neighbors returned. Among them was a family that owned a black dog.

No one is quite sure, but it's possible the dog fled during the storm.

Fast forward to about one week ago, when Veal spotted a large, black animal on the surveillance video of her home.

"I thought it was a panther," she said. "I told my husband, be careful when you're cranking up the car because there's a big, black animal out there."

Early the next morning, long before sunrise, Veal went outside. "This dog lifted up his head from behind the woodpile," she said. "He looked about 60 pounds, and he's a full-grown black lab."

When she returned from work later that day, the starved dog was still there, so she gave him food and water. "I gave him three big bowls of water and lots of dog food," she said.
