Excuses are addicting.
Or maybe a disease.
Is there a cure?
And if there is, how do we gain access?
Snow on the ground with freezing temperatures.
It’s too cold to eat ice cream.
Childhood diseases stick. Adult diseases stink. And there are so many of both.
What is a caring person to do? We all know, “You can’t do it all”. So perhaps the best approach is simply to become an advocate and supporter of the disease that hits closest to home.
Last night my son (9) and I had dinner at Epcot, at The Walt Disney World Resort. We were celebrating “Wednesday”. Since our Catechism class was cancelled, it was a free night, and we spontaneously chose Epcot. We live very close by.
During the long walk to our car and then on the short drive home, my son couldn’t hold his need to go to the bathroom. He begged me to pull over even though we were four minutes from home. So I did.
There’s really no way to adequately describe what happened.
And last night, after finally arriving home, a faithful follower of these blogs wrote a note that couldn’t have been more timely. While I usually keep my spiritual side reserved for jeffnoel.org, I’d just like to say thank you for your prayers.
All of us have some sort of Hell we are going through. These jeff noel blogs (5 total) are the seeds of “therapy” for us to learn to help each other – more often.
Mother Teresa & Jimmy Buffett hold very special places in my heart. They seem to have nothing in common, right?
And yet I have aspirations to be like both.
Everyday I wake up with the grandiose goal to save the world – you know, to serve the poorest of the poor.
And each day I also want to savior the world – you know, Carpe Diem, seize the day. Enjoy life for all it’s worth.
This makes it hard to plan the day.
