It took me about 2 or 3 weeks, but I broke the barrier and am on the road. Subscribe or die...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQlICTXWvo4.
There's no more loved and respected athlete around than two time NBA "most valuable player, Steve Nash. Steve is point guard for the Phoenix Suns. The Boston Globe and Rob Galbraith caught this picture of him in last night's opening ceremonies.
Steve left right after the ceremonies for Dallas, where he is starting point guard for the NBA's all-star game.
The reason I bring this up is that Jo Ann and I watched the often boring, but also often stirring ceremonies until late in the night. K.D. Lang's singing of "Hallelujah" by our favorite, Leonard Cohen, was stunning. Shortly after that, when Steve appeared to actually light the big torch, both of us bounced from our chairs, choking back tears and loudly applauded our hero. Scared the daylights out of our dogs.
2009. Bad year in many ways personal. Lost a son. Lost a dog. Daughter gone.
Still, it was our 60th wonderful year of marriage and today we can't imagine how life could be much better. We go smiling through - regretting the bad things we can't control, celebrating all the rest, looking forward to whatever the future holds for us. We love each other and life as it is.
The best of all; God is with us!
Lee Bennion shared this - and I found it gentle, touching - and true...
I've had dogs since I was 2 years old. The first was Jiggs, a Wirehaired Terrier.
Before I married there were some great ones. Especially Peanut, a rat terrier who was my best friend in Jr. High days. Mom was partial to Boxers - and Chris and Scarlett were fine dogs indeed.
But when you get married, having dogs takes on a whole new dimension. I sat down the other day and made a list of the dogs who have made their homes with us - and made a gracious difference in our lives.
