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.

Most Amazing Gift?

Most Amazing Gift?
Most Amazing Gift?

What is the most amazing gift you’ve ever received, besides the gift of life?

This should be much easier than trying to pick a favorite song.

It took me days to pick a song that would be featured on a soundtrack, if our life ever became a movie.  Days.

But today’s question is a no brainer.  Instantaneous answer.

Strength Is Your Responsibility

100 Years Old
100 Years Old

“Strength is something you forge from within.”Eugenia ‘Jean’ Finnegan Biden

Watching (not really, more like listening) ABC Evening News a few weeks ago, Vice President Joe Biden spoke of fond memories and important lessons he learned from his mother.

She had died the day before.

Of all the things Vice President Joe Biden said, it’s his mother’s advice at the top here, that resonated the most.

Why?

Personal responsibility is really the key to success.  I’ve known this all my life and you have too.

Having a ten year plan has really helped me see what’s still possible, but not guaranteed.

Not six months.  Ten years.

PS. This is the first dupe post.  By accident. Seems it posted January 9 at Lane 8, but for some reason it also sat in jeffnoel.com   It is a major rule to not recycle content here.  I’m gonna let this one ride though.

Why?  Because one dupe post ain’t gonna end the world.  Besides, the endings are different, unbeknownst to me.

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  🙂
