Being There

Journal entry from 2013

It was touching last night to see daughter Michelle laying in bed with my youngest son Casey watching a National Geographic program on sharks. They were cuddled up in bed and Casey what was beaming with satisfaction.

Steve Jobs on Courage

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

-Steve Jobs


“If you treat every situation as a life and death matter, you’ll die a lot of times.”– Dean Smith


“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”
– Dale Carnegie

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.” –Philippians 4:6

…and if you do worry, make it segue into prayer.

Things you can control

“The more concerned we become over things we can’t control, the less we will do with the things we can control.” –John Wooden
