Today I plugged away at a variety of personal and business projects, I had a good workout, and mostly I enjoyed a spring day in paradise.  I mean that sincerely.  The sun was shining, the wind was blowing and making the wind chimes ring out, and the atmosphere was really quite heavenly.

My little slice of paradise grows on me every day.  Not everything is easy, but there is so much goodness in so many big and little things that I know I’m incredibly blessed.

Today it was little things:

  • Wind chimes
  • Sunshine
  • Flowers
  • A Cat Perched in the Barn
  • Figuring out how to build part of the railing to our deck addition
  • Considering big plans
  • Having a good discussion with Home Group

It was a good day. My wife and kids are all around all of the time, and that is part of the bedrock goodness I am talking about. I am living a life that is pretty close to as good as I think it gets. I’m really grateful for that.
