A Pause

Very sorry about being MIA for so long. It wasn’t intended, it just happened like life. A mixture of good and bad has kept me away from creating this last week. Going to turn it around this week. Going to get my camera out each day and open my eyes again. Also appreciate being out and about while I’m at it because each day each of us are healthy, it’s a wonderful day. Even the thought of going back to work and starting a new week at the job that pays the bills is exciting.

The last few weekends have reminded me how lucky our family is. Two of my better half friends have children who are going through very rough medical issues. And also we are reminded by a couple of high-profile deaths that mental health is also a very important thing. I’ve struggled in the past with this myself. Luckily I finally found the right way to think about life, but it can still be difficult and challenging each day.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I should let my better half know that if I took her for granted just one day that it was one day too many.

I’m finding things that good people are doing to keep me inspired to do my part.

You are blessed if your children are smarter than you. Luckily mine are much smarter and have avoided a lot of mistakes I made.

Just hearing your children’s voices is a special perk to a day.

I’m on a mission to try to stay happy.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
