I was wishing I had more time today. But then I realized the time I did have, had been wonderfully spent. And even though I’m trying to figure out what today’s post will be about and contain, I’m content and not frustrated. I don’t like starting post without an idea or image to kind of get me going so today is a little different.

Today was a special family event. One that will be cherished along with many other memories. A celebration and remembrance of many great times and more ahead. One where many sincere and loving words were exchanged. Hugs with warmth and meaning. Sometimes hugs can say more than words.

All I can say is always have respect, appreciation and regard for your parents. Always cherish the time you have with them. Always let them know your feelings. Always listen to their wisdom. Always remember to celebrate not just the milestones but every day in between.

Looking back and wishing you had spent more time or that more of an effort was made, is not the way you want to live. Say the things you mean. Express the feelings you have. Take some time out of that busy schedule.

I’m wishing you all a wonderful Sunday ahead.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Lighting a fire under yourself is good motivation. Just don’t burn yourself.

I’m getting a little tired of this rain. But the yard looks nice.

Pro basketball is just amazing to watch. But I still like the excitement of college more.

You ever have a pain that scared you.

As some work gets old, its good to have new work that is exciting and enjoying.

I was hoping to grill out tomorrow but that looks like a wash. Excuse me, washout.
