As I sit here this morning reminiscing about the last 45 years of my life, I am humbled to share this day with some great events of the past and some not so great. Such as Gene Autry’s Back in the Saddle Again and the great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. I am grateful for the many people I have met on my journey and the ones yet to come. I am thankful to have made it this far in life and still have more life to come. And I am blessed by the two wonderful biological children and the 5 other adopted children I consider mine whom all give me a reason to smile, Dustin, Cibila, Johnnie, Kevin, Anna, Bobby, and Mikey! I love you all so very much.
It has been a long journey full of potholes, deadends, curves, and reroutes. As well as smooth roads, beautiful landscape, and peaceful easy feelings. (Yes, I had to link to the song). We all know the quote that goes something like this: “It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey.” For me, that has never mattered more in life than this very moment. Even through the worse of times, I made it! I am here today! I am still standing, still alive, and determined to make the journey count.
So today, instead of focusing on the April 18, 2018 Conspiracy theories. I will choose to relax without a worry or care in the world. I choose to remember the faces of all the people I love and who love me and smile. I choose to plan for a long and happy future because the world is NOT going to end today.
Today, I choose to place my focus on little notes like the one pictured below and remember that this is what life is all about.
