From me to you:
Enjoy your day (and your weekend).
I’ve always believed that sometimes you just need to heed the advice of a slip of paper tucked inside a cookie.
Today my fortune cookie delivered this message:
“You are capable, competent, creative, and careful. Prove it.”
Yes. Yes I am.
I am ESPECIALLY thankful for a wife who takes such great care of our family finances.
And is not afraid to get her hands dirty with fall leaf clean up.
Today, I continue on my Thirty Days of Thanksgiving.
Honestly, every moment of every day there’s much to be thankful for.
I hope you’re enjoying this series. I invite you to join me in my Thirty Days of Thanksgiving.
No hype. No pressure.
Just a time to stop. Breathe. And notice even the smallest of things.
Be in awe of it. Cherish it.
And most of all, be thankful!
We’re into day number three of the Thirty Days of Thanksgiving project.
Today I was happy to see (and hear) that my college-age son is truly thankful for his mother’s excellent meal preparation skills.
Here is my second entry of ‘thanks’ for the month of November.
Tonight I am grateful for the time my family sat around the kitchen table at 11PM eating greasy tacos from Taco Bell.
We talked about the wedding Nate attended this afternoon. And we talked about what he’s doing at college these days.
It’s good to all be together.
We talked about marching band and state band competitions. How the high school that my wife and I attended took home Second Place in tonight’s contest. The Marching Minutemen of Concord High School put on a fantastic show.
No need for special occasions. Or special food. Or any special reason.
It’s special simply because we’re all together.
I am thankful for my family.
Join me in my month-long ‘simple thanks’ project here on the blog.
Simply publish a post about some simple, basic thing you’re thankful for and share in the comments section below.
Don’t have a blog? No worries! Simply leave a comment and let me know what you’re grateful for. It’s easy!
Here in the States, Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away.
A time for turkey, a lot of other great-tasting food, family get-togethers, and of course, a time to remember all the things we’re truly thankful for.
Rather than save up for the ‘big day’, I thought I’d share something I am thankful for every day of the month.
It won’t always a big “happy-to-have-a-great-job” kind of thing, but many days, I’ll be celebrating the smaller, mundane things.
Like hot water. Wi-fi. Windshield wipers that work.
You know — things like that. Silly things that we take for granted.
Shame on us!
So, please: join me as I celebrate simple thankfulness during the month of November.
Every day, I’ll be publishing a short post here on the blog. Feel feel to do the same — and share your link in the comments.
I am thankful that Nate got home from college safely.
It’s an hour and half drive.
With rain and wind and leaves everywhere, I’m especially thankful that his trip home was safe.
See! It’s easy.
Now, go post something on your blog. Or make an entry in your journal. Then, come back here and add a comment and share the link to your post. Or tell me what you wrote in your journal.
But let’s be intentionally thankful this month and capture those those things we’re grateful for.
Digitally or with pen and paper, let’s make a list and celebrate each one.
Okay, so it wasn’t really a party. But, sometimes when you find a new recipe and you really enjoy it, that is something to celebrate!
That was the case today.
My good friends at Child’s Play Communications offered me the opportunity to try out the some Ultimate Party Meatballs. The recipe calls for the Johnsonville Classic Italian Style meatballs . (They also come in Homestyle and Three Cheese flavors.) They contain no MSG, artificial flavors or colors.

The calendar says it’s Sweetest Day.
Wow. Another holiday created by the big greeting card company, huh? Oh well.
I get it.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling overwhelmed, it helps to sit down and make a list of all the stuff I need to do.
Today, at work, was one of those days. I have several BIG projects going on.
My head has been spinning all week.
