What age then, is acceptable for death to seem fair?

math questions
I'm convinced that nearly every question in life (except math questions) can be answered with, "It depends"

What age then, is acceptable for death to seem fair?

The quickest, easiest answer is, “I don’t know”.

Do you?

When We Moved To Florida, The Original Plan Was To Buy A Mobile Home

In 1984, at the ripe age of 25, jeff noel thought he had the perfect plan. noel (married in ’83) would relocate his wife and all their belongs to Orlando and begin their Disney career. They’d buy a “lower cost mobile home” and live there until they could afford a house. noel never factored in land/lot rental. This made the price the same as a house mortgage. Rut roe.

Happy Birthday Aunt Jennifer

Happy Birthday Aunt Jennifer.

My Aunt Jennifer’s birthday is today.

She may never read this, but that isn’t stopping me from thinking about her and hoping she has her best birthday ever.

Some people say it stinks to get old.

I guess it could if you let it.

Don’t you think getting old is one of the greatest gifts God bestows on us?

I do.

Carpe diem, jeff noel ๐Ÿ™‚

Are We A Family?

What is a Family?

What does a really good one look like? Is there such a thing?

I surely don’t have an answer. And yesterday, as I was minutes from leaving my house for the airport, I quietly wondered if I even have a clue.

The car was packed with my carry-on suitcase and small backpack. I was all set to drive to Orlando International Airport for a business trip to Niagara Falls.

“Goodbye Mom and Dad”.

My Father-In-Law started to cry after he shook my hand. He never cries. “What’s wrong”?, I asked.

Next thing I know we had a 20-minute conversation about life and the physical hardships of getting old.

They are 83 and 86, and when I get get back home today, they’ll be back in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

They’ve been visiting us for several weeks, to witness our Son’s First Holy Communion.

To make a long story short, I am challenged to know what to do, what to say or when to do it or when to say it.

Mother Theresa said something to this effect, “The way to create World Peace is to go home and Love your Family“. Humbly, jeff ๐Ÿ™‚

You know what I’m Thankful for?

Everything.

Seriously.

EVERYTHING!
