Simplicity on Saturday

Hello from Los Angeles...it is a hockey weekend for my younger son. We drove down yesterday, leaving the house around 9am and arriving at the hotel in Long Beach around 2:30pm. Perfect time for the drive as we missed all of the horrible traffic that LA is known for.

It is nice to get away for a weekend. It is nice to spend time with my younger son, Matthew. Most of the hockey travel now-a-days tends to be "team travel"...which means that the boys travel with their team, room with their teammates and eat all together. However, travel down to LA for Matthew is "family travel", so I get an opportunity to spend time with him.

This time together seems to get less and less as the boys get older, so any time that I have with them one-on-one is priceless!!!!!

What on the itinerary for today? Well...EAT...SLEEP...HOCKEY and repeat. Matthew has a game this morning and one this evening, followed by one more tomorrow morning before we drive back home.

All is good...I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Until next time...take care and remember,

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!

I was regretting the past and fearing the future.
Suddenly God was speaking.  "My name is 'I Am.'"
I waited.  God continued.
"When you live in the past, with its mistakes and regrets,
it is hard.  I am not there.  My name is not 'I was.' 
"When you live in the future, with its problems and fears,
it is hard.  I am not there.  My name is not 'I will be.' 
"When you live in this moment, it is not hard.
I am here.  My name is 'I Am.'"
