    I'm getting over a cold, I got a problem tooth fixed, and I have some wonderful books waiting to be read. I have a job, I have a place to live, I am free, and I have enough food to eat.

      I am currently staying with a wonderful friend while my apartment is being repaired, and it's been a great experience (and personally enriching) for both of us.

      My clients have followed me through thick and thin and are very supportive of what I'm going through with having to run my business out of a temporary office.

        Sometimes I feel the life is fleeting fast and sometimes it stands still.  That happened to me recently when my client said he does not want to live any longer.  He is turning 15 tomorrow!

    Kids! I am about to have dozens of em! Actually it's three, but it seems like dozens!
    My twin granddaughters will grab each of my smallest fingers and tow me where they want me to go, my grandson will probably leap off the fridge on to me as I pass, I will be exhausted and probably bruised at the end of the day.

      I'm with you, Earnest.  I have only one of the age to grab a finger and tow, but 4 more that might jump off a fridge.  Seems like a dozen sometimes, but sure wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.  They make my world worth living many days.

    Water aerobics! It's the greatest thing I've discovered since urban mushing.  What a great way to exercise and get cool at the same time.

    Griffin the malamute - I almost passed on getting a puppy because 'we're too old', 'too hard to start over', 'too, too, too' - all the reasons I thought I couldn't do it a year ago and lo and behold, I've had one of the best years of my life.  Got back into urban mushing and have had a year fulled with laughter - all because of a cute little (big) puppy named the Griff...and my very indulgent and loving husband who agreed to start life over again.

    After a grueling move from one state to another, downsizing from a 3200 sq ft home into three rooms, realizing the potential of my home going into foreclosure before I can sell it, I woke up this morning okay with all of it.

    I felt happy to be alive, happy to have so much less to worry about, and happy that my children arrived back from their vacations well and in good spirits.

    I think I'm learning to be okay with what is. Other things outside me may not be completely okay, but I'm okay. There is still abundance in life.

      Good on you Daniel.

      Coming to terms with issues that are not controllable in your life is one heck of a step forward. Remember, you must always conquer the valleys, before you can reach the mountains, to start all over again.

      Remember, God is there to help you find your steps, to carry you through troubled times and to offer a hand when you are unsure of where you are going.

      My favorite quote is "Do not worry about tomorrow, for I am already there".  Matthew 6:34

      Keeping you in my prayers for a safe journey into the future.
