Facebook wiped out my creative energy and my willingness to get on blogger and compose updates.  Pushbutton statuses are great, but I think I have lost a step as of late.  Since my last post I have had four birthdays, been engaged, and now I am 12 days away from remarrying.  Life is curious when you live it...

Well, the morning of my 40th birthday has finally arrived, and I feel good.  There have been some pretty astounding, yet humbling changes  in my life as of late.  But, I am dealing with circumstance well, and I think I know the direction that my life needs to go.  I may have lived over half my life at this point, and right now I have no regrets.  I have plenty of "lessons learned", but no regrets.  At the end of the day, all of my choices in life have led me to some sort of positive end thus far.  I am an eternal optimist.  Well, Happy Birthday to me....

Starting Over

Funny how the road of life takes you.  I am approximately halfway through my life...if I am lucky, and now at this stage of the game I live in an apartment that offers the same level of comfort and amenities as my college apartment.  So many changes that have occurred, and so many changes to come.  Things aren't great, but things aren't really bad either.  I am going to manage things the best that I can.  I am broke as a joke, and I'm at a crossroads in my military career.  But I am optimistic....I don't have much, but I have everything that I need.  God has given me a great father, mother, and two sisters.

"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. "

Today is my 38th Birthday. Feels good to be alive doing the things I love to do. When I was five years old I made up my mind in regard to what I wanted to do. I wanted to be just like my father. Life is up, life is down...sometimes things are easy, sometimes things are hard. But right now, I love my life.
