It has been a good day. My dad and I traveled to Tennessee today, to pick up his goose-neck trailer and we loaded it up with some of the items he has at his house. Then we made the trek back to Mississippi. All in all, it was a good day and filled with laughter. When we got home, my mother had made Cowboy Stew, and dear Lord it was delicious. There is nothing that tops off a busy day like good comfort food.
After a wonderful weekend of church, my heart was full. I shared the highlights this morning with my mother, and it was every bit as real this morning as it was yesterday. I am thankful for a wonderful church family, and a caring pastor.
As I was waiting for my blog to load up, I had the opportunity to catch a few of the headlines. The media is so pessimistic. The last time unemployment was this low, a catastrophic event occurred. Jeez man. Why can’t we just revel in the fact that more people have gone back to work, the government is operating on a smaller budget, and our rights are temporarily secure (until the next time that something bad happens)? I am not a pessimist. I am an optimist that always takes his raincoat. It seems that no matter how good things may get, the media is going to find something to gripe about.
Ah well, I digress. Y’all take care.
