Blessed Beyond Measure?

Leaning into discomfort

The antithesis of Sanibel Island is pictured here on the Mt Reynolds (9,156’) Summer climb.

Leaning into discomfort, being with Family, being on Sanibel Island, and all three of these at Christmas is a unique and special gift.

Rock on, my friend.

Seems like common sense

On stage two nights ago, amongst the human cast, are a camel (left), a donkey (rightish), and five goats (middle). There was a newborn human baby too.
Newborn human baby. How? Even with ear protection the place was insanely loud.

Seems like common sense.

What?

The more you do something the better at it you get.

Say, recording short business videos from observation coupled with time-tested, world-renowned Disney insight.

Our Choices Make Us

It costs $800k

The Rosary Mario held during his open-heart surgery. i asked permission to photograph it.

Went to Mass alone yesterday.

Got in line for coffee and donuts even though i don’t do either.

Just wanted to participate in spiritual community.

Maybe 15 minutes in line talking with a friend, he and his Family get coffee and donuts and i decide which table to sit at amongst the 20 tables in the long, narrow room.

The closest table at the end of the donut tables was empty except for a middle-aged man i’ve never seen before.

A year ago to the day, he and his wife arrived from Dominican Republic to spend Christmas with his 28-year old only son.

Stomach pain landed him in the local hospital at 3:00 PM, and the doctors told him he needed open-heart surgery at 6:00 AM.

His heart was so bad, they said he’d soon die.

He didn’t have $800,000, nor insurance to cover the surgery.

His prognosis was only 15-20% he’d survive the surgery.

The hospital gave him the $800,000 operation and subsequent treatments and therapies for free.

A priest gave him last rights and a Rosary.

He asked the medical team if he could hold the Rosary in his hand during the surgery.

This is a story that can’t be made up.

i almost stayed home.

i almost skipped coffee and donuts.

i almost didn’t sit at Mario’s table.

Third Sunday of Advent

In looking for a Walt RIP photo yesterday, stumbled on the castle logo. Never used it. Still like it.

Third Sunday of Advent.

In business leadership, there’s a strong case for focusing only on your core strengths and not trying to get better at your weaknesses – instead, hiring people who are good at what you’re not.

In spirit, my core strength is the story of a baby born in a manger.

While i’d feel better about myself if i knew more about other religions, i’ll leave those details to Google.

All religions are different doors to the same house.

Steve Jobs

A person, like me, can simply appreciate the big picture: that everyone who celebrates Faith, Hope, and Love can practice with whatever origin story they wish.

We, after all, live in the same house – Earth.

Stuff We Do

Hope, healing, and Disney Magic

Gary Sinise at Epcot’s Candlelight Processional last night.

Hope, healing, and Disney Magic.

The Disney pre-show announcer used that exact phrase. Immediately wrote it down knowing i’d blog about it this morning.

Why?

Kinda mysterious, really.

Maybe it’s a type of trifecta that we can easily relate to. Who can’t use a little more hope, healing, or Disney Magic?
