|Dang it feels good to be a Texan tee available here.|
I've picked up a few new tricks, since the last time I was in Houston. Most recent would be my egg poaching skills (thanks, Pearl!). Maybe I shouldn't call them skills just yet... ability? I'm still tweaking little things, but I enjoy having something new to master and any kind of breakfast food is my favorite. Thursday, Tim, Emma and Brandi were nice enough to test my breakfast. It was a slow morning and I don't think we actually sat down to eat until lunch time.
While we were all lounging in the living room, I was thinking how thankful I was for them and the rest of my friends that were busy at work that day. Somewhere near that thought, Tim says "Man, do y'all remember where we were at last year?" and we all smiled. I've been thinking about this a lot lately. It was one of those crazy years... absolutely one of the most challenging years for everyone in our little crew. A lot of growing pains, random campouts, a lot of laughs, maybe some whiskey, a lot of tears, and finally some breakthroughs. That season has come and gone and this new one is a beautiful wonder. I remember last year, and I'm looking forward with a strong focus. I think we all are.
If you find yourself having one of those days, weeks, months or years where everything is falling apart, just know you are not alone and you are not stuck. Keep focused on what you value and where you want to be. Keep moving. Surround yourself with really good people. There's another season ahead.
