Best thing this weekend was when my college student daughter said that she missed us and wanted to spend some time together as a family. It made my heart swell knowing that we did it right, that she values family. We sat around the table together last night and enjoyed a great meal and then went to church together.

Best day in a long time.

Funny....I had almost the exact same experience this weekend. We took our college freshman home-for-the-weekend daughter with us to a dog breeder we are thinking about getting a pup from....she played on the floor with 20 bulldog puppies, giggling and smiling the whole time....told us that was the most fun she had in months, just "being with mom and dad and puppies". I was beaming.

I found out a while ago that the simple things like just being and playing with one's family are some of the most rich and fulfilling ways to feel good, feel complete, feel being in the right place.
In this modern, superconnected, hyperfast world I do believe that we sometimes chase the nebulous "fun" while forgetting that it's just there, near us, ready to be seen and appreciated.

Reading anything about Duterte. Seriously this guy knows how to troll.

Philippines' Duterte orders female communist fighters shot in the genitals, reports say

Quote:
“Tell the soldiers, ‘There’s a new order coming from the mayor,'” Duterte, a former mayor, told an audience of approximately 200 former rebels in Malacañang. “We won’t kill you. We will just shoot your vagina.’”

“If there is no vagina, it would be useless,”
Duterte added to laughter from the crowd, according to local reports.

Bet there’s a bounty on Duterte’s penis now.

Graduating a training class that was originally scheduled for 16 weeks that lasted 7 months and 18 days due to unforseen circumstances with the company. Lots of time and effort paying off. Being able to better provide for my family and serve my country in another capacity outside the military is awesome!

Definitely one of the coolest things I've ever done. Mostly 1 second bursts. But I did get to let off a 10 second burst and it was awesome.
