Change…Renew

04-75

This was pulled from a blog post entitled, Life depends on Change, and Renewal

This is a topic that I find myself thinking about more and more…how we can change and evolve, regardless of where we are in our lives.

A little over ten years ago, I made some poor decisions. I would like to think that although I still live with some of the consequences, I learned and evolved….changed and renewed.

A buddy of mine, who was aware of that “journey to destruction” sent me a very long letter. Here is one paragraph. This quote hangs on the wall in my office and in my home.

“If there is one thing I am learning as I age, it is that all of our experiences, good and bad, contribute in ways we never could have imagined to the value we ultimately bring to the world. So I have become more accepting of things that happen because I believe they will improve me in the long run”.

(Bill Steiner, November, ’03)

May we all use this Easter weekend to consider that which needs to be changed in our lives and let us have the courage to take the first steps towards renewal.4875686

Crazy

Tonight, we had all three daughters home.

Four women and me….a quiet family dinner. Well, not so quiet….a bit crazy actually.

Seven to ten simultaneous discussions..it has become somewhat of a tradition at these reunions

Things discussed that most men would not appreciate…or be able to tolerate.

I marvel in the noise and confusion….it is joyful.

No one had make-up on and they didn't want their picture taken…but who is the boss around here?  Daddy is.  (wanna buy a bridge?)

Yes, I almost choked a few times and had a few tremors, but that was by design.

Happy noise….bouncing off the walls..

The four of them are now in the other room, deciding on what movie to watch while I enjoy the quiet of the kitchen.

Easter may be in a few days, but today is Thanksgiving for me…everyone is home.

I’m a lucky man.

I thought about a song for tonight..this crazy night….what other song

New Product, Destined For Greatness

Many would benefit from this product….and the list would start with me.

New business deals would be inked and many a marriage would be saved.

Civil society would evolve upwards and the smart person who invented this would become ridiculously wealthy.

But only in a perfect world.

Thanks to Steve Layman for introducing us to the “Phone Cone”
