Thanks to my friend Andy for pointing us to this nice, little spot that should make us all think about making sure we are getting off life's treadmill once in a while.
Today was birthday number 52 and I got off the treadmill all day. Char and I played golf with friends at one of our favorite courses - Alvamar in Lawrence. (Illustration above is one of my favorite holes at Alvamar - # 16 - I made par today.)
I then had a great dinner with three of my four kids and all three of my grandkids. And Char has five chemo treatments down and seven to go. My sister Debbie has the same. Both are doing well. The kids and grandkids are doing well and Barkley has won four new pieces of business in the last three months.
I take nothing for granted these days and enjoy all the victories - large and small. Many of them seem large these days and I am grateful.
Now, if I just hadn't made that seven on hole number nine at Alvamar today..........
