Carving Out A Life

A Reader Said, I Don’t Know How You Do It

Hard work always shows up on the list of answers when people ask, “How do you do it”?

But what rarely gets identified (which is why God put me here) is the real secret to achieving our dreams.

Mid Life Celebration takes a ton of photos, by design.

This photo has purpose. Which is why I took it 8 days ago at Epcot. It helps us get closer to the right questions.

Childhood Diseases Stink

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.
