    Title says it all......... I've been blessed all of my life. I have no idea why..... but I have been. I've done a lot of "good" things (IMHO) ....... and screwed up a lot........ But all-in-all life is good... (actually it's better than that!)

    Major........ :)

    Glad to hear that everything is going well in your life. We welcomed our first grandchild into the world in January and I look at her and feel like we are so blessed to have her and 3 great children. Glad that you reminded me to think about all the blessings in my life!!

    Major,

    You brought tears to my eyes. I have been having a rough year and I need to remember this. When my father died in February, one of the last things he said that I could understand was, Ï've had a good life." Isn't wonderful to be able to think that at the end of your life? I think it gave him peace.

    Major, I appreciate you. Many of your posts are thoughtful and good points to share. Thank you.

    Probably just a coincidence, but I am getting ads for the "Life is Good" t-shirts when I open your thread!

    I have been very discouraged by a lot of issues in my district this summer, but I need to stop and remember how good my personal life actually is. Thanks for the reminder.

    So sorry for your loss, scmom. I lost my father quite a few years ago .... but I still talk to him. Take comfort in knowing your father "had a good life." Bunch of hugs coming your way....... :)

    We all have bumps, but I agree, Major -- life can be very good.

    Recently, I've:

    • Bought a nice new house (that needs work, but is big and comfortable with a baseball field across the street)
    • Watched my youngest son cap his summer baseball season with an inning in which he fielded all three outs (one a pop fly, one chasing down someone who'd tried to make it from second to third, and one throwing out a runner at home)
    • Seen my oldest get into the top honors track in math and science in a terrific local public high school
    • Gotten into a project at my job where I work half the time at night, allowing me to work from home up to 4 days a week.
    • Helped my middle son recover his work ethic after an overly-nice teacher let him get away with far too much.

    Next projects: renovating the house, improving my stature at work enough so my wife can stop working, and enjoying life :)
