Life is good

Just got in off of the deck. I went out there and sat in the dark and smoked a cigar. A Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real robusto. Mmmmmm. What a gorgeous night too. Not a cloud in the sky, stars shining, a brilliant half moon illuminating everything. A perfect 55 degrees. It doesn’t get much better.

I really just sat and enjoyed the moment, a perfect end to a perfectly nice day. Kali was a good girl, I got the yard mowed and the gutters cleaned out. Enjoyed a nice meal outside, and proceeded to watch Fantasia Barrino win American Idol. Nice all around.

It’s times like these when I really have to sit back and realize, that despite the unemployment situation, I have a wonderful life. A great family, nice home, gadgets galore, and overall a great existence. There’s not much more that a person can ask for. And being that I have sometimes despaired over the whole job situation, a day (and feeling) like this really boosts the morale.

I urge all of you that read this to just take a step back and examine your life. Enjoy it. Realize how good you have it and try to savor it. I’m doing that now, and it makes all the difference in the world.
