A sweet reminder

Leave a comment

In the carnage of the world on a daily basis sometimes it’s hard to think that things will be OK. And maybe it won’t be but spending a day with my granddaughter yesterday after a few weeks’ absences have renewed my effort yet again to make it better.

Today I got a note from one of the sweet administrators I work with who always looks out for us night folks. She keeps us as much as possible in the swag that usually gets decimated by the dayside and today she let us know that the 2022 calendars are on our desk. People who do the little things for you speak volumes of the people they probably are on a larger part.

Speaking of sweet, my better half is always keeping this sweet tooth satisfied. I think I was born with a couple more than just one.

I woke up this morning and reminded myself how lucky I was to wake up today. You see that is something I don’t take for granted but waking up in pain from the surgery the last few weeks kind of made me put that to the side and that lack of appreciation almost became a habit till I caught myself this morning and paused for a moment of thanks. Ain’t life sweet.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Giving Tuesday should be a weekly thing.
  • Truth is a hard thing for everyone and the easiest thing at the same time.
  • The older I get the more respect for the body I have. I think I should have started earlier.
  • Please be careful on the roads. We all have loved ones.

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.
