A Wide River to Cross...

A wise man once said that an artist should never feel as though they've arrived somewhere, that they should be constantly searching for new ways to express themselves. I'm certainly no artist, but I think this idea holds true in life as well. It's good to be content, but not complacent.

Gramps was always learning something. In the end, I think he was learning what it was like to be completely dependent on others. I wonder what he learned about himself & others through that.

Me, I'm going to try & read War & Peace in 2008. I'm gonna pick the bike back up this year, & I'm going to try to hike some new trails. I also want to learn how to be a little more handy with fixing things. I'm also going to try & figure out how to be a husband. I'll let you know how I do.

I had a friend, once, who would always say the toast "May the best of your past be the worst of your futures." I don't think that's very realistic, but it's a good sentiment. Anyone got a good toast in it's place?

Here's to 2008, let it be great. Feed the eagle.

The secret to being a fine husband is to be a fine man. You can check that one off your list, you have accomplished it.

I agree with Joyce, I dont think you will have anything to figure out, you have accomplished it. (except maybe putting the toliet seat down) ;) Okay, okay sorry I had to throw that in there. Love you!

Did you have a copy of Dad's sermon last night? It was all about crossing the river into the promised land and crossing into a new year with Jesus!
