It is also my lovely bride's, birthday and I will be taking her out this evening for a nice dinner.
I do my best to ensure that there is something worth reading for you each and every time that I create an entry. It is my conviction that there is purpose in creating value, even if it something small, for others each and every day.
What do you do that creates value in a altruistic way? Do you find it fulfilling to do so? I believe in the character building nature of non self centered activities. Non ego-centric living is critical to the evolution of our species. The time has come that we as a species must evolve beyond our current mode d'operatum, facon de vivre if we wish for world and our race to survive. Should we continue to act as we do, without concern for the consequences of our actions, without consideration for impact or influence of our actions, words and deeds, then we are no better than the animals that will eat a food source into extinction.
The difference is that we have enough awareness and presence to realize that there is consequences and outcomes from our actions and decisions. As a race and as individuals we should realize that there are long term results and implications to our words as well. I wish I would have learned that as young man instead of waiting until my late teens to realize this important lesson.

I would encourage each and everyone to listen carefully to the words we share with others. I have no problem with humor and or fun among friends. Few love puns and wordplay as much as I do. I also know how the thoughtless words of others can harm the self esteem and self worth of another.
My you find great joy in today. In having a warm and wonderful home to return to and share that knowledge and be thankful for it in such a manner that those within your home know it also. Gratitude is contagious.
Smiles, love and a nice warm bed to you and yours.
