It's all good men.

We shared a warm and peaceful day as a family.

While a little more conscious than usual I can honestly say I'm very happy and secure and feel blessed beyond what I deserve.

Its that day again.

The last few weeks have been filled with anxiety......hardly any fishing......just lots of busyness.


And I stayed up last night and had a brandy and worked on a miniature helicopter with a very small screwdriver....( like an old man) and I contemplated my blessings.....my many blessings. It's Amazing.

So I try to live my own motto every day:

Don't Look Back

It's all good....so good. And very humbling.
I'm so very thankful.[/report]

Thanks for all the responses and texts and emails fellas.

This thread is kind of therapy for me.

This day crushed me 22 years ago and I had to make a choice. I chose to trust divine providence and focus on the good.
I've lost a few good friends and suffered a pretty bad back injury but nothing has affected my life or framed my outlook like this day did. And I will always be thankful.

It's also good to have a bunch of you scallywags as friends!

Peace.
