Some people say a man is made outta mud

Another year older and deeper in debt...

Taking liberties with the lyrics a bit there. Today was a great improvement over my last birthday which was spent as a patient in the hospital. The highlight of the day was getting to eat jello after a 3 days fast. :-P Almost anything's an improvement over acute pancreatitis. So, I spent a quiet day - sang at church, had my partner cover the hospital, hung out in my comfy chair. I'm grateful to be in better health, grateful to have a partner in my practice to rely on, grateful to be a part of community, grateful to have a warm and cozy home that's my own. I sometimes struggle to find contentment, focusing on the little problems and the things I need to fix. Always the things I need to fix. But it's important to take a deep breath and a big step back to get a wider view and take stock of the good. And there's plenty of good.
