Being Organized Helps

These Are For You (Happy Birthday)
These Are For You (Happy Birthday)

Being organized helps you remember important things, like birthdays.

I’m pretty certain you can all relate to this.

Happy birthday today to my Mom!

I wasn’t so organized last week, when I missed my step-Mom’s birthday by a day.

I saw it coming a mile away. Every year it’s the same. It’s the last week in August (predictably) when two very special women celebrate their birthdays.

What we do thunders so loudly, people can’t hear what we say.

We must have the determination and perseverance to continuously try to improve our attitude when we stumble, even as we get older.

How Much Do You Love?

Some Parental Memories Are Blurry
Some Parental Memories Are Blurry

How much do your parents love you?

How much do you love your parents?

Our parent’s love for us is immeasurable, even if it doesn’t seem so. Maybe they just aren’t great at expressing it.

Anyone who has ever been a caregiver to a child should understand this amazing bond.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother Theresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great love”.

I hope some day to do not be so busy, and that I can plan a special Mother’s Day that makes my wife, Mom, Step Mom, and Mother-in-law all feel like the deserving Goddesses they are.

Well, if all I can give sometimes is my thoughts and prayers, and maybe a note, some flowers – than maybe I did do some small things with great love.

Carpe diem, jeff  🙂
