I was chatting with my girlfriend today. We were talking about the things we hate...about ourselves.
Flabby this, wrinkled that. Too much here, not enough there, blah, blah. The funny part is, I can clearly see what's so incredibly beautiful about her. In fact that's all I see in her. #LoveYouLisa
And yet, when I look at myself it's all flaws and imperfections and blech, oh my!
I know we're all our own harshest judge, though some of us impose stiffer sentences than others, I suppose.
But life is so, so precious and short, a fact that smacked me in the face and stuck me through the heart this week at the sudden, tragic loss of a beautiful, brilliant, young and incredibly giving family friend. #EternalRestGrantUntoHerOhLord
I actually couldn't have said it better than my pal Lisa did when she finished our self-beat-up session with; "You know, we're all just working at it, trying to make ourselves better...selves." Indeed.
Every one of us is a work in progress working through somethin', Capisce? So, be kind to the other humans, yo --- starting with the one who stares back at you from the mirror, you dig?
Life's a gift; let's not waste it re-taping the crumpled wrapping paper it came in. Rather, let's just appreciate what's inside as long as we can, okay?
And one more thing: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KELLY MARIE! I LOVE YOU MORE THAN WORDS, SWEET PEA! MWAH!

1 Pt 1:25 R. Alleluia, alleluia. The word of the Lord remains forever; this is the word that has been proclaimed to you. Gospel Mt 13:54-58 Jesus came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother named Mary..." And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house.” And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.
