Feeling the warmth

Leave a comment

Warmth can come from many things. Love keeps me warm. The sun keeps me warm. The thought of finishing up a hard days work makes me feel warm. Helping someone less fortunate makes me warm. Giving flowers to my better half and seeing the smile makes me warm. Holding my grandchild makes me warm.

Talking to an old friend gives warmth. The engine on the motorcycle warms me as I rode. The purr of a cat warms me. The seat warmer in my car warms me. Seeing a text message from my children warms me. A note in my lunch warms me. A photo that turned out good warms me. Visiting my parents grave on a Memorial Day weekend warms me.

Seeing my best friends each week warms me. Looking into a dogs eyes warms me. Putting the top down on a hot summer day warms me. Helping older people makes me feel warm.

There are many things that keep me warm throughout the year. Many more than I could list today. Just felt like talking about it because I’m feeling the love today. Well some at least and if you have some you always can hope for more which is a warm thought.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Take time one day to just focus on your breathing. Its something we take for granted. Each breath is a wonderful thing.

I used to worry about what to write about.

Can you dig it? Good come help me move a big pile of dirt.

Don’t let yourself get comfortable competing against the easy people.

I’ve got to do something tomorrow for someone. If you can have that thought each day its going to be a good day.

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.
