That said, it was a pleasant surprise when an old friend read a recent entry (on the Seattle Special Olympics) and sent off an e-mail thanking me. Blogging is kind of like putting a message in a bottle and it's a great feeling when you learn that sometimes the bottle lands near a thinker.
MTOD (my thought of the day):
Any day you wake up feeling rested is a good day. Any day you help sustain your family is a good day. Any day you go to work (or take a break from work) is a good day. Anyday you read, learn, think, write, plan, watch, listen, feel, move, stretch or appreciate is a good day. Any day you talk with a friend, or go for a swim, or get on your bike is a good day. Any day you share a meal with your family is a good day. Any day you spend a few one-on-one minutes with a loved one is a good day. Any day you play ball with the dog or get the cat to leap for his toy bird is a good day. Oh and any day more than a few of these things happen is great day.
