Nothing left to buy but memories

Family
How grateful can a Mom be?

Nothing left to buy but memories.

The new upstairs has been a nice purchase.

If we are blessed enough to have a few more months, we will witness him spreading his wings.

The new world order of not being physically present in his life opens opportunities to continue to teach him.

What do two 60-somethings do with their life after the children are gone?

PS. Son, our home is your home. It will always be your home. And we promise to cherish every visit you bless us with. We also promise to visit you as often as possible, wherever you are in the world.

RIP Jack Noel 2001

Glacier Park hikes
Grinnell Glacier overlook. Can’t help but wonder what my Dad would have thought of this place.

Glacier National Park. My Dad, Jack Noel, never visited.

RIP Jack Noel.

Please don’t live in the past and dwell on what was lost or could have been.

Live fully present now and think about traditions and intentionality.

Getting to a daily place where you can be fully present will be achieved only though the trials, errors, and triumphs of a lifetime of ordinary days.

Humble beginnings is a common Family story

Disneyland Jungle Cruise vintage photo
Using this photo signifies the photo upload issue continues. Made it through today’s first two posts without any issues.
Home back porch expansion
Our home was designed and built with two small steps down to a 10′ x 10′ concrete pad for a back porch. No roof. No money for more than this. i used irrigation pipes to “draw” our expansion plans.
back porch home expansion
We added a 44′ x 30′ concrete pad in 2000, eight years after our home was built…15′ roof covered and another 15′ screened in.

This photo is an experiment to see if it would work and it did so i’m leaving it. All of this started with a cartoon Mouse in 1928.

Humble beginnings is a common Family story.

Today is the third Sunday of Lent.

Jesus’s story is bathed in humility.

From being born in a stable…to the Savior of the World?

Operationalize your personal culture with traditions

Orlando Disney Keynote Speakers
April 2011.

 

Operationalize your personal culture with traditions.

This is a concept i learned at Disney.

You can be intentional about designing your organizational culture.

If you’re not intentional then your culture is heavily influenced by random and unintentional things, people, and events.

In 1999 we volunteered to deliver “Food For Families” on Thanksgiving morning. One month later we did it again on Christmas morning.

As we entered the new millennium, we discovered that we could volunteer again on Easter morning.

So here we are, Easter morning 2018, about to head out to do what we always do on Easter morning.

Is it possible to simultaneously represent yourself

Shriner's statue
What’s gonna happen when one of you has limited time left on Earth?

 

Is it possible to simultaneously represent yourself as a Christian, even if you’re non-denominational and don’t go to Church – is it possible to say you believe in love, kindness, generosity, compassion, hope, faith, forgiveness and yet get angry with blood relatives to the point of being so angry you refuse to talk to each other?
