My oldest son

As a child he was so much fun. As a teenager it was hard to see him change. As an adult he is so responsible and grown up that it makes me nearly burst with happiness. We have a good relationship now and it is growing better.

I'm grateful for my oldest son!

I'm living the dream!

I told Sue and the boys that I always dreamt that I'd be successful and have a good family, and that I was living the dream. Woohoo!

My freedom

I am blessed with the freedom that was bought with sweat, blood, and commitment. Thank you, founding fathers of the United States of America, and all the people giving their lives to protect this freedom I have been entrusted with!

My son Stephen

Stephen is a joy to me! He makes me laugh, challenges my beliefs, and listens to what I say. His enthusiasm for the physical sports is amazing and I enjoy his prowess at whatever sort he is doing. His wit makes me laugh and his hugs make me want to cry. I Ann very thankful for my son Stephen!

Challenging job

I continue to be frustrated at some of the things I have to do but I really enjoy my job.  I work in a challenging high-tech environment where I get to solve all sorts of puzzles throughout the week.  I work with intelligent people that keep me on my toes and provide with camaraderie through challenging situations.  And I'm paid a nice amount for all the time I spend at work.  Woohoo!

Wonderful fires

It's 33 degrees outside on it's way down to 19 degrees. This is a little early for the winter season, but then all of the forecasters are saying that this winter is probably going to be colder than last winter with a more extended period of coldness.  Something about the polar vortex and all that stuff.  

I'm very grateful for fire, for firewood, for having the resources to be able to have a fire in my hearth, and the time to be able to enjoy it.  Fire is good!

My oldest son

He's doing so well! Calm, thoughtful, fun, able to carry on a conversation. He makes me proud! I'm truly blessed.
