Appreciation

Leave a comment

I appreciate a warm breeze. I abhor a cold wind. So you get the picture that today might not have been my favorite weather day. Busy as can bee can be. Tiss the season for busy. But as you wait in lines to get to the malls, while you circle like a hawk for a parking space, while you go shoulder to shoulder over that sweater, while you wait in line at checkout, when you go back out in that cold wind… Smile and have appreciation for the ability to be out and about and enjoying the season.

I appreciate the phone call my daughter made to me this evening. Hearing her voice sets me to smiling. Setting a dinner meeting in December was icing on the cake.

I appreciate the time I have to pursue this and other interest. I find myself happier when I have something to look forward to each day.

I appreciate that the day is coming to a close and much remains to accomplish elsewhere.


Random Thoughts of the Day

See, there I go putting more pressure on myself. I could have titled it “Random Thought of the Day” But Nooooo.

Good thing I didn’t call it “Random Thoughts that Made Sense”. I’d still be searching for my first one.

Are all my thoughts random?

A window of free time tomorrow is presenting itself. Oh the many things I can squeeze into that window.

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.
