A Day of Grateful

In this week leading toward Thanksgiving 2019, I find myself incredibly grateful. I would love to think that I’m always grateful, but I’m not. The truth is far less beautiful I’m afraid.

My 40th Year

Wait a minute. I’m not turning 40! It’s my 39th birthday. That means I’m starting my 40th year alive today. I’ve seen it coming for a few weeks now. My wife and kids seem to age me in their minds and refer to me as a 39 or 40 year old long before I hitContinue reading "My 40th Year"
