"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal- is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinder, and jolts, interspersed occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."---Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." - Elbert Hubbard

I am thankful

November is about being thankful..... so

God sometimes is silly.....funny even.. has a sense of humor??? Last Feb.. I met a fellow photog... someone at first I never even gave a thought to a future with. We attended a conference together, I thought she was sweet, odd.. interesting even. I never thought that she would be my best friend. We left the conference... with new ideas...new plans..new thoughts...
And I found myself drawn to her.
Not in the wierdo stalker way.....ha...... but in the.........she is real....she is true.......she is honest.....she is my friend.
Funny as adults, friends are hard fought for.... something that is not just easy.. but something that is hard won.
L was that... and so much more. Our family and hers has meshed so close that there is nothing that is uncertain. She is the frick to my frack.. the well........ you know.

So i thank you Lish. I thank you for being you. For your love of God, for your love of family. For being true when all around us fell. For listening to me at 4pm or 4am... for believing in me.. for trusting me... for respecting me...
i thank you.
You are an inspiration...... someone I want to be near.. someone I want to be like... someone I learn from.. someone I admire.

I can say nothing but thanks..
and i love you.
you and Dan Bennett and the girls... and t.

and of course, above nothing else......
