Dear Son, delivering Food for Families for the 13th Thanksgiving Day in a row this morning. Yes, you’re 12, which means we started the tradition when you were three months old.

As you’ve grown, it seems this year may be the first day you look at this process with the realization that giving is receiving.

This month jeff noel is encouraging Mid Life Celebration readers to follow all five daily blogs about work life balance. It’s a breeze to go from this spiritual health blog to the money (career) blog, just click -> go to Next Blog

Retired Disney Institute Keynote Speaker and Prolific Blogger. Five daily, differently-themed personal blogs (about life's 5 big choices) on five interconnected sites.


  1. Financial health, mental health, physical health, spiritual health. I see all of those wrapped up nicely in this post. There is more than just the simple act of providing a meal. By feeding these families you are:

    Allowing them to use what money they have for other neccessities. (Financial)
    Easing their burden about where their next meal may come from. (Mental)
    Nourishing their bodies with a balanced meal. (Physical)
    Sharing the love of God through Christ by serving. (Spiritual)

    One act. Many deeds.

  2. David, and Patty, just back from a (very cold) 5-mile run, which I really would have preferred to stay inside and relax.

    What is striking me with the combination of your comments is there are those that are hungry (starving perhaps) for work life balance.

    Mid Life Celebration is trying to feed those people, of which I am one.
