Diversity of people in my area

It's so nice to be able to go to a farmer's market near my home and hear languages from around the world.  Eastern Europeans, Russians, Indians, Chinese, Mexican, and more all in one place shopping for food that has been brought from around the world.  Awesome!

Wonderful wife

My woman takes care of things for me, fixes really good meals, makes me feel special, and looks beautiful through it all.  She is good with my parents, is good with her mother, and is great with our kids.  She is fun to be with, even while we are asleep.  I am grateful for my wonderful wife!

Good kids

All of my kids are good, even when they're not so good.  Kevin was not thrilled with having to write more sentences about taking the dog out but dutifully went to do it and was crying at his desk when I went to discuss it with him.  Jacob doesn't ask for anything, which is kind of bad, but I'm glad to see that he is doing his best to make it on his own.  Megan continues to do great with everything she does.  Stephen is like a rocket fully fueled and ready to take off with all that he is involved in.  I am very grateful for all of them!

Warm place inside while it snows

I am saddened that so many people are having such a rough time with the snow that fell and all their issues dealing with the icy roads.  But I am very grateful for my warm house, the heat, the wood in the fireplace, our fresh food and pantry, my warm bed, my family around me, and a working Internet connection.  God has truly blessed me with these things and much, much more!  All of this snow stuff has happened on my "weekend" so I have not had to get out in the mess at all!  What a wonderful blessing :-)

Grateful for a great job

Even though the politics at my place of employment have cut me out of the loop and made me feel like I am not progressing I have a great job.  It is challenging work that keeps me on edge and excited about what I do most of the time.  I am at a place in my career where I get to develop ideas into projects that are sometimes used and I continue to try and develop the people around me. 

It is challenging work that keeps me engaged and paying attention.  I am passionate about it and enjoy what I am able to accomplish. 

Thank you, Lord, for such an awesome career!

Beautiful afternoons

Today in the middle of winter we had a high of 65 degrees!  My wife and I went for a long walk, then we sat on the front pitch with our youngest and read together.  It was beautiful! 

I am very grateful for this day!

My sons Stephen and Kevin

They are so much fun to be with, laugh with, eat with, and grow with.  Since I have calmed down we seem to be having more fun with each other, and we all have a good time when we are together.  Thank you, God, for my children!
