    Little Things In Life

    There's a tiny plant with what looks to be a small flower growing out of the crack in the concrete. If that isn't a metaphor or inspiration for "keep going" then I don't know what is. Something that small let me know there's a bigger picture at work here. Even the smallest...

    Yesterday I awoke to a very pleasant sunny day.

    Unlike my friends up north who were dealing with snow and black ice, winds and traffic accidents, and a late blast of winter. It was a perfect day to take the kayak and explore some of the small islands nearby. The waters were calm in the bay and I was treated to the sights and...

    I stopped for lunch today

    and when I unwrapped my straw and tried to blow the wrapper off, it brought back memories. My kids would always pelt me with their straw wrappers whenever we went out to eat. It's those silly little small things I miss. Cherish every moment because life passes us by so quickly.

    Funny how life plays with you huh.

    .. happiness in this times ain't free. It cost something and how happy you are now, it'll be a complete twisted opposite of whats to come back to you. It sucks, unfair, undeserving but then life aint fair afterall isn't it?

    There are fewer things in life

    that give me more pleasure than to be sat round the table with between one and three friends or relatives, having a good laugh and decent conversation over a nice dinner. Such occasions always seem to be over way too quickly, but I love it while they last.

    Sometimes it's as simple

    as hearing a thank you for making dinner....often it's the smell of the outdoors in the early morning. Before anyone is awake, just a deep breath and being saturated in the deep blue night sky. Simply amazing, and I'm greatful for each time I can experience it.
