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]”

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.

for Karen…

I wish I had a magic wand
I know you wish one too
I wish I had all answers
The reasons why for you

I wish I had a magic wand
I’d transport me and you
We’d take actions, make decisions
To change what we’ve gone through

Sadly I don’t have one
No means no method for “redo”
Instead I have two ears, two arms
To listen to and comfort you

Listening and comforting
Those actions are not new
But hopefully they remind
I love and am here for you
