This post is a nod to my brave, brave cousin Jay, who is on his way to Afghanistan as I type...the best F15 fighter pilot there is. We're praying for him and know that he is doing this in support of this great country we live in.
We spend so much time thinking about how things could be better and planning the next step. Really, it's enjoying the now, the present – the right here that we should embrace.
That said: I'm going to attempt a new direction in my Gmail status and pick out the good things in each day - either that already occurred or that I am looking forward to. It'll be a challenge on the days where you think, "Why did I even get out of bed?" but I've never been one to back down from a challenge.
Today's status: "great morning run, vanilla creamer, sunshine, haircut & whole foods."
Maybe this blog is meant to be a jumpstarter for enjoying the little things through a status. That's the glory of writing: you just never know where it will take you. As for today, I sure hope it takes me to a manageable new hairdo!
