Not a Bad Day

This is how my day started on Wednesday.

I'm not really sure how it happened other than to say I wasn't paying attention. The quote to replace the three panels is almost $500. I still say it wasn't a bad day.
  • My best friend's mom has pancreatic cancer.
  • A good high school friend has a new born that is in the NICU because of problems with underdeveloped organs.
  • My pastor's father died this week.
  • A co-worker's son died this week.
  • The father of another good high school friend had a heart attack and almost died.
  • A co-worker's daughter, who has run several marathons, is being told she needs back surgery related to her childhood scoliosis - and that she will never run again.
Perspective. I'm getting a lot more of it right now than I care to. If you pray, you might consider saying one for these folks.


  1. I know the feeling. I am sorry about the door.


  2. Mike - thanks.

    Good idea on the therapy suggestion... except my ammo money went up in smoke to pay for the garage door fix.

    First world problems. Could be much worse.
