Thank you, HOA (from Listen to Life)


 Thank you Homeowner's Association...not for the letter about the fishing gear in the driveway, nor the letter about the cleaning that you believed my house needed, nor the letter about the garbage can that was in the driveway for longer than some unstated rule allows, nor the letter about the need to weed my rose garden. Thank you, but not for any of that...instead, thank you for the letter telling me that I had to paint the house. It-the painting, not the letter-has provided me a chance to sweat, relax, enjoy country music and think in a relaxed way unlike I have had in a long time. A very long time. (more)

Two Years? (from Daddin')


Lillian-"Lil Girl," as her dad, my oldest son, calls her-will be two years old soon. Very soon. Two years. TWO years. Two YEARS. No matter how I place the emphasis, there is no easy way to comprehend how fast time has flown and how little of it I have seen. I can't change the pace of the former but I can change the latter. I have to.  (more)
