I am reading a meditation from The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday every day. This thoughtful reminder was from yesterday’s meditation. Whether things are going pretty well or pretty badly, it can change in an instant.
My mother-in-law and I got our Pfizer Covid booster shots today. Our primary care doctor had a drive-through in her parking lot. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes.
This Friday's song is If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away by Justin Moore. I picked this because I am thinking of my Mom today. Four years ago today, we had to rush her to the emergency room at Baptist Hospital.
It has been a tough summer. The pandemic we hoped would be behind us continues to cause disruption and death. Despite or maybe because of that, I picked Beautiful World by Kenny Chesney for this Friday's song.
It is very easy to get caught up in everything going on in life and not take the time to relax and appreciate the beauty in the world. I am really guilty of this.
Teresa and I took our first flight in over two years this week. It was just a short flight from Tallahassee down to Miami.
Wishing everyone a safe and relaxed Independence Day holiday weekend. As you celebrate, take a few minutes to actually read the Declaration and reflect.
Please take a moment today to remember each of the men and women who left their lives and families behind to protect and defend our values, our way of life, our freedoms, and the Constitution of the United States.
May has always seemed more like the "start" of a year for me. It is probably because I have always used my birthday to reflect on the last year and plan the one ahead. Or maybe there is another reason?
The Copper Works Newlyn and the craftsman at its heart, Michael Johnson, was featured on an Escape to the Country episode we were watching today. Pretty amazing.
As with many things in the past year, our tenth anniversary was colored by the ongoing pandemic. Thought I would take a moment to share our experience and thank those who helped us celebrate.
This Friday's Song is Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flats. Ten years ago today, I married my 'meant to be'. Thank you, my darling Teresa, for being who you are and for waiting for me at the end of that broken road.
