Dear Son

Friends count

Happy 46th birthday.

Friends count.

Common sense that makes even more sense when you hit 60.

In this Covid-19 world-pause, lots of reflection on our own mortality.

Updating your legal, end-of-life paperwork really zeros in on how death is the finish line for all of us.

In the end, who do you want to “speak at your funeral”?

This really focuses you on who your best friends are, and have been, during your life.

Happy 58th birthday brother Howard

Happy 60th 58th birthday brother Howard.

This post happened because i wanted to text a (single, specific) photo to Howard yesterday for his birthday (i don’t like to use Facebook for birthday wishes).

Looking for that specific photo, i got caught up in many other nice photos of Howard in action.

Long story longer, i posted 15 photos on the Facebook feed and tagged Howard creating a much different message than the typical Facebook-provided-happy-birthday-wish (so uninspiring, to me).

From that, i decided to use 13 of them here today.

True story.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

Why not me?

Disney World Guests
jeff, Teresa, “Mom”, Brian

 

Brian, a former Marine, and his wife Teresa have four grown children. They are visiting Family near Walt Disney World. We’ve known each other for 25 years. It was the first time meeting Brian’s step Mom.

During our leisurely lunch at Columbia Harbour House, we talked freely and abundantly about God and our infinite blessings.

Brian’s Mom shared how her husband died of cancer, and this led to a story about her overhearing a recently diagnosed cancer patient frustratedly asking aloud, “Why is God doing this to me?”

Just then, another woman (without cancer but who knew it well) said, “Why not me? Who am I that I should be spared from cancer?”
