Thanksgiving

It's been a good year. I've met a lot of good people; great people. I've made some really cool friends. I went to Minnesota for RKC Level 1 & 2; Adventures I will never forget. I've had the opportunity to train and infect several people with kettlebells. I have a beautiful wife who puts up with my insatiable insanity. I have two beautiful boys who have helped me see the world through a different lens. Being a husband is a blessing. Being a daddy is an honor and a gift I could never deserve.

I have had a great year. All the annoyances, pains, inconveniences are really nothing in the grand scheme of things. They are just distractions. I think that's why we have them. They try to make us lose sight of what's important, of how blessed we are. I admit sometimes, most of the time, I get distracted. But once in a while I see a bigger picture. It's a gift just to be here. I really have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that I get to live this life. I've never done anything to deserve the blessings I have. Nor could I ever deserve them. I am blessed. I am Loved. And for that I am thankful. Happy Thanksgiving.

Tim, Happy Thanksgiving.

How's the elbow doing?

I'm doing great! Let's attempt to get together one weekend soon--maybe one Sunday afternoon?

Drop me a line.

Geoff,Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. The elbow is doing well. Every now and then it gets aggrevated but usually calms down within a day. Practicing lots of Z.

Glad your lifting is going great. Been reading your blog...

I'd love to get together, Sundays are good.
