Tonight we got to host some freinds and their kids for dinner while enjoying the warm San Joaquin Valley weather outside in our newly done back yard. Good food, good company, the kids had fun, can't complain.

Everwhere that we've lived, we have had one or two couples that we just love being in their company. We had had them in Hawaii, we had them in Utah, and now we have them here in California. Freindship should not just be something that we do seasonally, but for a life time. We always try to be the best friends we can be to those we meet, and it is such as blessing and a joy to see the favor returned. Things can be so enjoyable if we all try to be someone's best friend in life. To the families that visited us tonight, thank you for being our freinds.

Yesterday I took some time off from work to take care of some appointments and spend time with the family. After a visit with the Doctor, I was happy that the end result was not anything scary. Swim lessons was fun to watch, especially with the Clown Boy who is so full of excitment. Got to spend some one-on-one time with girly; even a trip to Baskin Robbins. Later, I took Vai to his baseball practice and got to listen to him tell me a story the whole drive time to the field about some alliens. Then the icing on the cake was when I was able to take the love of my life out to dinner.

It felt so good to be seating across the table from her and to look into those pretty eyes and be reminded that those were the eyes that I fell in love with 11 years ago. The food was awesome, our third wheel tag along buddy layed asleep in his car seat. I felt that he; sleeping the whole dinner time was no accident because the Lord approved of our activity and wanted us to enjoy ourselves.

With a great day such as that, this morning after going for a jog, I caught myself wondering if I am just going through the motions of being married. Why that even came to mind; I have no idea. But after asking the wife that very same question, I was comforted in her response and it made me feel better about our experiences in "This Crazy Thing Called Life" the past 7 weeks. It is such a blessing to have someone who can assure you in times of need and help solidify things. I am thankful everyday for such a blessing and I hope and pray that if I ever come across as just going through the motions, that she will remind me and can even give me a good ole polynesian beat down if she has to. But I don't think it will ever go that far, for I plan to be the best I can be for my family.

I am not ashamed!

I am not ashamed to admit I am a fan. I had your posters hanging on the walls of my room. I tried to in vain to imitate and master your dance moves. I loved your music and listening to it brings back special memories for me. I am not ashamed to admit I cried yesterday as I watched your memorial service. I am not ashamed to admit that I am trying to educate my children about your music. I love the way you make me feel. I am not ashamed to admit I am a fan!
