Strength...

I am discovering that the source of my strength streams directly from my admittance of weakness to Him...the weaker I am to Him the stronger God makes me.

Why won't they stop???

Just dropped off the oldest for yet another sleep over. I'm beginning to suspect I might have a popular kid. Popularity itself doesn't bother me so much. I think all parents want their kids to be liked and appreciated by their peers...I just don't know how to be the parent of a popular kid. I was pretty far from popular as a child and teen. Did not participate in sports and certainly wasn't dressed 'richy'. I guess I'll learn, but also I think it's my job to keep her grounded...to remember that girl in the corner who needs someone. If I can do that...I'm good. I'm good.

B + Itch

My daughter, Chailyn, was in the middle of some real drama this day. A boy faked a note using a word (referenced above) signing Chailyn's name to it. Whew! Chailyn was ticked...teacher says she needs to work on her anger issues!! Too funny...

Speaking of anger issues I have finally found my running anger that I've been needing for so long. It felt good to run like I was fighting...

Off to take the kids to Thunder Fan Appreciation night...my oldest is convinced that she'll marry Russell Westbrook one day!

Slainte,

Another passing...

So we lose another blues man. Much like the WWII two vets these gentleman have been there and done it. Their stories are fascinating and incredible. Their stories and musical legacy are what bring me to the blues time and time again. As a guitar player its where I'm most comfortable. If you get a chance to see some real blues, you'll never forget it.

Slainte,

What's your movie?

My wife is flipping through the channels and catches the start of National Lampoon's Vacation. My attention is immediatly held - every time this movie is on I have to watch it! It's just one of those movies that demands my loyalty and gets it every time. Do you have one of those movies that you can't let go when it shows?

Emmaus Bound...

Charleen leaves for her Emmaus walk on Thursday. Of course that means leaving me with 3 gremlins who will begin to chew the important parts of this plane off. So if you hear me screaming Lithgow-ishly (trademarked!!)...you'll know it's me!

Slainte,
