putting the mantra into practice

"Get busy living, or get busy dying." ~ Andy Dufresne, from Shawshank Redemption

How I got busy living today:

  • met a parent and student for coffee; walked him through the process of writing two different types of essays (which he missed due to a serious injury that had him home bound for about six weeks)
  • took the younger two to the "boat" park (which features an eye shaped sand pit) even though it was a chilly 50 degrees here (now, now - be easy on we cold sensitive Californians. Fifty degrees to us is like 25 degrees to you)
  • strung Christmas lights across the front of the house even though Christmas is a just few days away

Nice! I think I'm going to remember that tomorrow. Too much good stuff in life to just sit back and fail to appreciate the great life God has given us. (And the seemingly "small" opportunities.)

Now, about that "cold weather. . . "
