It's Been A While

It has been a while since I last blogged. It seems like there is never enough time to do all the things I need to get done. The place I work had a walk through by the CEO of the company himself. Our managers were making us all jump through hoops to get ready. It reminded me of my Air Force days. Every time a visiting general would come through, we would be assigned tasks to touch up paint, clean up, redecorate and all kinds of other things to make every thing look good for the general.

In the middle of that very time period, my children decided to drive down from North Dakota for a visit. It was good to see them. My daughter even brought my granddaughter with her. She (my granddaughter) is getting really big! They grow up so fast. My son is just a couple of weeks away from leaving for Army basic training so that he can take his place in the Army National Guard. It was the first time that all my family (me, my wife, the kids and the granddaughter) have been together since I left Minot back in August of 2006. That was a good time.

But on top of that we (my wife and I) have battled a bout of the flu (no not the swine type) and other minor illnesses.

All of this is to say that my time and attention have been everywhere except on this blog. But we are still here. Things seem to be calming down now so I expect to be back making blog posts very soon.

Remember that as you are out and about in your daily lives that God gives us each a day at at time. Take time to savor the day. Carpe Deum as it were! Stop and smell the flowers. Enjoy kissing your spouse. Make some quality time for your kids (I read that parents have less than 30 seconds of meaningful contact with their kids in a days time). If you can, walk instead of drive someplace so you can take in the air. Remember when people used to do that? And thank God for the time He gives you.

I'll see you all in a future post soon.
