Hello Again Friends:


This issue we get to introduce you to three new Her Voice staffers, Taryn Sonnenfeld, Brian Anderson and David Lias. I know you’ll thoroughly enjoy the variety in their writing styles and the stories in this issue.

I get to read all of the stories before I write my Meanderings and after reading the articles in this issue I think we should call it the “Inspirational Her Voice Issue.” I so enjoyed reading Taryn’s article about Dominique Boudreau. What a fantastic young lady she is and what a story she has to share. Reading it made me take a look at my life and what’s really important. Kayla’s story about the young Marine, Kelsey Holzbaver is an inspiration too.

I know you’ll also enjoy Dave’s story about Mary & Ray Hall and their mission to bring hospice care to the Vermillion community.

Truly amazing people!

Then I got to read the Father’s Day tribute and story about Matt Scott. What a terrific young man, husband and father. You can tell by reading his comments he truly enjoys the time he spends with his kids and wife.

Lastly, I’ll mention Brian’s fishing story. It’s not the regular “fish tale” about the one that got away but it certainly offers a different and humorous insight into getting your kids to want to spend a day just relaxing with a big old night crawler and a fishing pole.

We are always looking for story ideas from you, our loyal readers, so if you know of one you think our other readers would enjoy please feel free to let us know.

I came across this brief message and thought I’d share it with you:

There are five things that you cannot recover in life:

1. The Stone……….after it’s thrown,

2. The Word……….after it’s said,

3. The Occasion……….after it’s missed, and

4. The Time……….after it’s gone.

5. A person……….after they die.

And I’ll leave you with this:

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance!

God bless and have a wonderful summer,
