Helpless

Let me know what you think of my new logo.  A new friend of mine created it for me.

Many people have asked me, “how do you do it?” “how do you remain so positive and upbeat?”.

I’ve struggled with this answer for years.  You see, I want to give an answer that gives someone else hope.  The truth of the matter is that I’ve done “this” because of and for my family.

Call me crazy.  In fact, you can call me anything that you want.  First of all, remember that I’m a son, a husband and a father.  There’s not a day that goes by that my thoughts don’t go to one of those connections.  It’s my family that gives me joy.

When I see my own kids, I can’t help but smile.  This weekend, Colin cheered on his teammates that were in the cross country state championship.  Jess played in the marching band state finals.  Grant brought three of his roommates, from college, and stayed with us the entire weekend.  I’m in awe of how this life is playing out.

It’s true, there are things that I don’t like.  Especially the things that I can’t avoid.  In the end, those things don’t matter.  It’s the blessings that God has given me that make this a life of abundance.

Helplessly in love.

I just can’t get over the feeling of love that I have for my family.

Do you have something or someone that gives you the kind of joy that makes you feel complete?
