Happy Birthday Dad!

Today marks what would have been my father's 88th birthday!!!

Not a day passes where I do not think of him and miss having him to talk with and just be around.

He taught me the value of being there for our loved ones, our children especially, in that I never once questioned or doubted the love and support he provided me growing up. 

He had my back always, and as I became an adult, he was truly my best friend.  I miss him tremendously as I know that all who knew him do!

He was a great man of quiet strength and great love and compassion!

Happy Birthday Dad!  I know you are golfing or hiking in the outdoors wherever you are today. Wherever that may be, enjoy it and know you are missed, loved and remembered always!!

Stay Strong!

Wake up!

"By contemplating the impermanence of everything in the world, we are forced to recognize that every time we do something could be the last time we do it, and this recognition can invest the things we do with a significance and intensity that would otherwise be absent. We will no longer sleepwalk through our life."William B. Irvine, A Guide to the Good Life : The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy

Worry can be defeated!!!!

"The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not."
- George Bernard Shaw

Get busy getting busy and limit worry in your life.

Become engrossed in helping others, focus on constantly working or diving into an interest with such Passion that you do not have time to ruminate and even dedicate a moment to worry!!

Worry is a habit and like any habit it can be broken with willpower!!

Make defeating worry a habit and a goal of yours today!!!

Stay Strong!!

Happy Sunday

Every decision you make -every decision -is not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.

-Neale Donald Walsch

Take inventory of your blessings and snap out of it!!!

Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.
-Dale Carnegie

Mr. Carnegie nailed it as always!!! 

Snap out of your pity party and get on with living your life ...a life filled with blessings, gifts and wonderful privileges that some people will only dream of achieving or experiencing!!!

Stop focusing on what is WRONG in your life and shift attention to what is beautiful and blessed!!! 

Help others solve their problems and you will be amazed at how quickly the last call for the pity party arrives!!

Stay Strong!!!

We are protected by FAITH!!

"You are being protected by the Power of God through FAITH.

Even if now for a little while you have to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith - being more precious than Gold that, though perishable, is tested by fire - may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

Although you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, for you are receiving the outcome of your FAITH, the salvation of your souls."

1 Peter 1:4-9
