National Dog Day

“People can learn a lot from dogs. When someone you love walks through the door, even if it happens 5 times a day, you should go totally insane with joy.” – Denali*

I miss our Annie terribly.

I’m grateful for our new pup, Henry.

I’m challenged by the quote above…

*From the Vimeo description: “The end quote of the film is an excerpt from an incredible story by writer David Dudley that we highly suggest reading: ‘What Our Dogs Teach us about Aging.’ aarp.org/health/healthy-living/info-2014/aging-in-dogs.html [Thank you for saying it so perfectly, David]”

Good one…

At church this morning, the Mac that they use at the sound booth started making a weird noise during the sermon.

It was a low thumping noise that didn’t last too long, though I’m sure it seemed like a long time to the person working the booth.

Immediately, a certain commercial popped in my head…

Before I could share this funny insight with my wife, she leaned over and whispered in my ear:

“Boots and Pants and Boots and Pants and Boots and Pants and Boots and Pants.”

I love her so! She knows just how to make me smile!

Celebrating twenty-seven years of marriage today…WOW!

I DO NOT deserve such a wonderful wife and consider myself totally and completely blessed.

Love you K!

So, So Thankful

I guess there are many things about which I’m thankful; but, without a doubt, what I’m most thankful for is my wonderful wife.

She is kind, genuine, understanding, thoughtful, caring, loving, and so many other things. Most of all, she’s tolerant of me; which, believe me, that involves quite a bit.

20131128-183258.jpgA while back, I saw an interview with triathlete Meredith Kessler who said that she always writes her husband’s initial on her thumb during races. I’ve been doing it ever since…and did this morning for the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot.

So, so thankful for her.

I probably need to post this in a few other places to remind/reinforce:

We swim in language as fish swim in the sea, not noticing the power that our words have
to manifest, to create and to destroy.
