Transformed: My Daughter’s Journey

All The Shoes I Wear

In A Word: Inspiring

It took 6 years after having my son for my memory to fade enough to have my daughter. 23 hrs of  labor is a strong deterrent.  My children were complete opposites. My son who was small, struggled to gain weight.  My daughter struggled with hers.

She was beautiful, smart, strong, a razor sharp wit and full of hilarity. She didn’t let her weight stop her from achieving whatever she dreamed.

By the age of 12, she could bench press 250 and she wanted to play football like her brother before her. She was one of the first girls to ever play boys football, having tried out, won her position as a starter on both offense and defense. She was also the first female to ever attend Razorback Football Camp at the university of Arkansas, Fayetteville at the insistance of famous coach, Houston Nutt who flew his…

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Riverside Peace!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Riverside Peace

Here is an excerpt from the Riverside Peace about page:

For as long as I can remember I have always loved writing. I write mostly poetry and fiction and sometimes dabble in other genres just for fun. I also like photography so I often use my own photos.

With a limited education but a lot of determination, hard work and encouragement from my husband, I entered university to graduate with a Graduate Certificate in 2004 at the age of 47. This experience then propelled me into doing something more with my hobby of writing and ventured into publishing short stories and poems in local and online magazines and newspapers for a few years.

You can find the rest of Chrissy’s story on her page.  Her logo is in my sidebar and on the Partners’ Page at the top of my website!  When you visit be sure to tell her Danny sent ya!

Don’t Always Get The L12

Zach’s Scope


Hello again, today’s blog includes a little story about myself, as well as some sound life advice based on a recent experience of mine.

So let me start off by saying that, like most people, I am a HUGE fan of Chinese food. Fairly often my fiancée and I will indulge in the greasy and delicious goodness of the one decent Chinese restaurant in town. Every time it’s the same thing. I get a combination plate called the L12 and she gets the smaller #16.

Until recently, this has been the trend. L12 everytime without fail…. And then something miraculous happened. One night while ordering Chinese food, I made an impulse decision and ordered the chicken lo mein. I felt weird about going against the grain of my regular order, it almost felt wrong but once I tasted it, It was all over.

I think the main point here (at…
