Hide & Seek

I got this image in an e-mail - the perils of being a surveyor in Alaska. Not quite the exercise I will be looking to do for a New Year's resolution.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable holiday season thus far and continues to find comfort in spending time with family and friends. As the year winds down, it is a great time to reflect on the past year and the things we were able to accomplish as well as those things we weren't. I know the list of things I would like to do in the coming year is long, but I've decided to take some advice I read recently on limiting the number of goals. I'll write more about that (on New Year's Day, of course.) May you have peace and love on this special day.

As the holiday season begins and Thanksgiving weekend has passed, I wanted to make a list of some of the things I was thankful for again this year. As I was driving in today, I was a sign that said something with the words "Gratitude" and "Attitude." (So much for details.)  I thought that so much of gratitude is our attitude about where we are in life and what we have. We need to be grateful for all the things in our life - they are there to teach us something - and hold that attitude daily. It is not always easy to do, but if we can convince ourselves to be grateful each and every day, things certainly seem to go a lot better. So, here are just a few things for which I am grateful. Happy Thanksgiving and may the holidays bring fellowship and good cheer.
1. Life
2. Love
3. Family
4. Health
5. Challenges 
6. Ideas
7. Friends and co-workers
8. Good food
