Turning 50

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary!

My wife and I are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary today.

We met in a job interview 30 years ago.

She interviewed me for a Resident Assistant at West Chester University in 1979.

I got the job.

Best thing that ever happened to me.  It changed the course of my life and gave me the courage to become a better person.

Thank you, Cheryl.

I love you.

PS.  If you are reading this and you think this is sappy, oh well.  Sorry.  Hope you’ll still come back.

Make it a great day, because if you don’t, who will?  If not today, when?

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

42 Days

June 24 means 42 days.  It almost looks dyslexic.

Forty-two days until the prelims at the 2009 Master’s Track & Field World Championships.

Normally, this would mean nothing to me.

This year is different.

I’ll be running in them.  Seriously.

My goal is to be in the worst lane, Lane 8.

Visit to see why.

Turning 50

Got Soul?

Got soul?

Yesterday morning, at Church, I wrote down two things our Deacon said:

  1. What gift am I giving my children?
  2. Deep and unspeakable suffering.

These two groups of words resonated with me.  And while I can’t put my finger on it at the moment, I am processing it and will figure out if it’s something I can write about.

Have  GREAT Monday.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
