Mr. Happy Bojangles !

So here we are. March is gonna be gone in a few hours, as will 1/4 of 2018. 25% of the year, finished.

I know, it doesn’t seem possible to me either. But here we are.

Another week has passed, and spring appears to finally be overtaking winter. It’s a great time to reflect on the year thus far, to look toward rebirth in nature and renewal of self. I’ll be doing that more in an upcoming post, but for now I’ll focus on the past week.

Well, this week I was sick. Real sick.  I don’t particularly enjoy being sick, but I think it’s good for me to get a reminder of how blessed I am given that I am well most of the year. Frankly, I would love to go a full year without an illness, but oh well–that’s life.

Alright, alright. 2018 needs to slow the tempo. I don’t know about y’all, but I am feeling rushed. I just wrote about Feburary ending, and now March is halfway finished, too. Seriously, when did life pick up this pace, and how do I make it go more slowly.

I don’t have a good answer, but I gotta be honest: I need to find one. Life cannot go by in a blink like this. There’s too much good to be savored.

I tried to savor some this week. Let’s jump into it.

Putting Chaos into Order.

I know I was feeling defeated and exhausted last week. Fortunately, I’ve had a few wins (big sales on eBay/Good update on work) in the past few days, and I’m doing much better! Today started with a wonderful men’s breakfast at church, followed by much needed errands getting completed. A man feels good when he uses his time well, and I’ve been doing so this past week. Below are some details in that regard.
