Thoughts Throughout the Days

So....

I have been quiet busy this past month. I have aged yet another year, help start a company, fully submerge myself in learning of things both temporal and spiritual, and managed to help out around the house. My mind turns nonstop always thinking about the future, past, and present. In the morning when I awake, I find myself in the shower pondering many things. Most mornings Summer hurrys me up or I would stay in for at least a hour. On the way to work I no longer listen to the radio because my thoughts will not let me rest. While at work there is a never ending list of things to get accomplished only to push things back till the morrow because of lack of time. On the way home is a simultude of the morning commute. But when I return home my thoughts seem to fall away as I hear the girls call my name. This is what I wait for everyday. This is why my thoughts are thought throughout the day. To become a better person is not easy. It takes work. And I have been taught well by family to do what it takes to be a better person. I was thinking this week about my family and the work ethic, values, and determination to succeed that has been instilled in me from past generations. I am truly grateful for their example. I know my thoughts will not rest, but they will continue to increase as the days go by. I am very thankful for the ability to learn and gain knowledge.

Awe, that's so sweet...
Seriously, that was a warm thought. Maybe you could somehow capture that in the song/noises you write for my thesis?!?

Who doesn't look forward to those girls? They're what keep me going sometimes, too. I haven't really played with them in over a week, and it bothers me. I love seeing those girls. I love you and Summo, too!
