Remembering 9-11

Remember 9-11 is painful, especially for those who lost loved ones on 9-11. I am grateful, this year (2011), that when we remember our fallen, we can also take some solace in knowing that while it took nearly 10 years of pursuit, Bin Laden is no longer a factor in this life. For that, I thank President Obama, Former President Bush, and our troops. God Bless America and long may our liberty be a beacon of light to all!!

Happy New Year

As I thought about the great moments of 2010, I had a bit of a personal epiphany. My most treasured moments were not career victories, politics, or cleaning the house. They were in having fun, in being in the moment, and in sharing special moments with family and friends. Sometimes, it was in the simple joy of discovering a new (low calorie) treat like Kool-Aid's Fun Fizz. Other times, it was watching Tom and his friends play ball and chatting with great friends. Then, of course, there was that big moment this year... standing at the Tacoma Dome as my daughter and her 627 friends tossed their mortar boards (and some beach balls) as graduates of South Kitsap High School.

I want more of those moments. So, this year, I have decided that my 2011 resolution should be simple and intentional. This year, I will be making a greater effort to have more fun. This year, I will be intentional to savor more of life and the blessings I enjoy!

2011 Resolution...
More Fun!
