#Blessed #Thankful

I’m verklempt in the best way possible. Talk amongst yourselves.

Okay I’m back. Pinch me, I must be dreaming. Today I’m not going to ask why and feel guilty. Instead I’m going to be grateful and content. For some inexplicable reason my family is blessed beyond measure. Perfect? Not even close but perfection is overrated.

When I was a kid and we said prayers, I always asked that everyone would get a good nights sleep. A nice blanket and soft pillow. To me, sleep was the cure for what ailed me. Little did I know all that sleeping was a sign of depression. Grateful to put that in my rear view mirror.

Today I’m praying for peace even if momentarily to all who struggle during the holidays. You’re not alone. Actions speak louder than words. Good thing they accept one armed volunteers. Today was one for the memory books.

Coach’s Corner

Every other Wednesday since October 2006, I’ve been getting a motivational email called the Coaches Corner from Enlightened Business Growth. These bi weekly gems often lift my spirits. Yesterday’s article was superb and apropos.

The Sound of One Hand Typing

Uncle Jack emailed me a couple of weeks ago and suggested this as the one-liner for today. It’s classic TV at its funniest.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the TV show WKRP In Cincinnati, it ran here in the US from 1978 to 1982 and into perpetuity in reruns. The description from IMDb is “The staff of a struggling radio station have a chance at success after the new programming director changes the format to rock music.” In this particular episode, the general manager of the station (Arthur Carlson, played by Gordon Jump) decides that, as a Thanksgiving promotion, the station should drop turkeys from a helicopter into a parking lot, where people can grab them and take them home for dinner. Chaos ensues. Here’s the scene.
