With these updates, I have quite a bit of things that I do want to touch up on this blog, but with some things going on in the last week, I would be remissed if I didn't write about this funny and unexpected thing called life.
Over the last week or so there have been life changing, tragic events that have happened to people around me. It hadn't really directly affected me, so to speak, but I have felt bad about the events. It makes you stop and relect on life around you. I always love to soak in moments, and I do realize that life is a wonderful thing. I appreciate everyday life. I am able to not let work, or business, or stress weigh me down. I have been lucky about that. Receiving news before a football game, even a Texans game (which is a big deal around these parts), made me realize just how trival and small a game is in the game of life (sorry for that phrase).
Yet it is in some trivial things that can make life that much better. Now a football game might not be the greatest example, but different strokes for different folks, right?! If someone can get a little relief, even if for a brief moment during a football game, then it did its job. For that, some might not realize that a football game can be comforting to someone, no matter what the outcome.
At the time, I didn't know if I was going to be able to enjoy the game, or even if I should, but I watched the game of course. A little ironic that during said game, a coach had to be taken to a hospital via ambulance, again making the game seem small. He now going through tests and will no doubt think about life.
I may be going in circles here, because I am having a hard time getting my thoughts down. I hope that this is coherent.
I say sometime that I am getting soft in my old age. I think that is true, or maybe I have always been a big ol' softy?! I am not sure which it is. One thing is that with the arrival of our kids, I have become much more of a homebody. I never really was the clubbing, going out all of the time, but now I choose to be home. There are times that I would like to go to different events, meet people for drink, what have you, but instead I think I would much rather be home. It's funny to say, or even weird to think, but it is fun being home. Oh sure, the occasional night out if very nice, but while the kiddos are small I want to spend as much time as I can with them because I know one day....the ain't wanna hang out with ol' Mom and Dad...maybe. I am of the opinion that we are building strong bonds and values now, that way when they are older, we have done our jobs. Does this make sense? I feel like I am rambling for some reason....
Anyway I can go on and on, but I may break it for there. I really hope that my thoughts came out a little clear and you can see a little into what I think and feel about life. Until next week....
