  This lovely couple, Doris and Gary, were just two of the many wonderful people I met while at the Barnes and Noble bookstore in Roseville on Saturday. I decided to take a page from my book, “Say it Now,” and give flowers away. (In the book, I encourage people to bring a sin...

  Do you ever catch sight of yourself in the mirror or shadow and think, “Wow, this person has been with me every step of the way. This person has never left my side. She’s trusted me all my life to do the best I can for her.” I just noticed my shadow as I was rushing up th...
