Disc Golf, Bowling, and New Friends

My 12 year-old brother-in-law, Alex, was once sitting in his kitchen, eating one of his favorite breakfasts: leftover hot-wings. My wife entered the room and said, "Good morning."

Alex replied with a grin on his face, "I'm eating hot wings for breakfast and I'm wearing a soft shirt. Today is a good day!"

Alex has a way of putting things into perspective for you. No matter what else the day brings him, hot wings and a soft shirt are enough to make it a good day.

For the last few days I have felt down about things as I continue my job search and my wife, Amy, prepares to return for another year teaching. I have needed something to give me a boost.

Yesterday evening, I enjoyed 27 holes of disc golf, bowled a couple of games (145 was my best), and had dinner and coffee with some new friends. As my eyes grew heavy at the end of it all, I knew it was a good day.
