A Light In The Darkness

–About Life, Love And Living

Do you ever wonder why we leave a light on when darkness falls?  It is reassuring when you are coming home and see the glow.  As a child, I associated it with warmth, comfort, a hot meal, and a soft bed.

Mom called me her wayward son and told me she would always leave a light on and keep a place set at the table for me.  I guess home is always a light in the darkness, a safe haven for the night.

I have 40 years of Retail Management experience. I am the person they send in to fix things. Call it a Store Focus Specialist, a Smoke Jumper, an Outlaw. I can work within the system or go outside the box when needed. I love walking into chaos and bringing order. I am not a key word person and my education came from mentors not schools. I believe that everything that we do starts with hiring the right people. Driving sales, merchandising, customer service and metrics are just keywords until you hire the right people. My top talents are Recruiting, hiring, training, associate development, and going into a focus store and turning it around. Most importantly I believe in people and that if you teach them, develop them and believe in them they will do far more than they thought possible.

Larry, yesterday I learned your Dad was a philosopher. Today I learned you’re a poet.

Thank you for this beautiful evocation.

The light shines on all of us when we look for it, and in the darkness, the light is there if we look for it. Loved this. Thanks Larry

Larry, there are no accolades that I feel would be strong enough to express how I feel about your writing.
