Grateful to wish May of 2012 goodbye. I always say that in the traditional academic year, everyday in May feels like Thursday (you're almost done, but not quite). While the first few weeks slowed, the remainder went quickly.

Gratitude for watching my daughter play recorder tonight as part of a chorus at school.  She has been practicing vigorously for several weeks now and did very, very well.

Woof woof Tribe and friends.  Im working though some tough times right now but appreciate the attempts to communicate.  Im not one to talk much as those that have been around me can verify.  This too shall pass... It has to.

I think of you all often.

Respectfully yours,

Picked up a little extra curriculum design work for my school district. While it was intellectually engrossing (I finished yesterday), I'm grateful to have some real time off to spend with my family.

Grateful for my country.

However, naive it may read, I pray that one day America will be less divided, and more united in excellence. If we are to remain at the perpetual 50/50 divide that seems to plague us, I pray Americans will find the path back to civil discourse, and truly celebrating the fact that we have the right to a difference of opinion, rather than using those differences to liken friends, family, and neighbors to Hitler if they have the audacity to disagree with our POV.

Happy Independence Day to all of those celebrating.

Sometimes, when life is busy, or hard, it's easy to lose sight of where you are at. I was watching some DBMA DVD's last night, and it occurred to me how much GC, Top Dog, Ajarn Salty, Pappy Dog (Now Tuhon Pappy as I read on FB grin), Guro Lonely, the original DB's, the fighters from the early days before the DB's were the DB's, and many more truly pioneered and paved the way for what we have today.

I was simply sitting on my living room floor, watching the DVD with my family all around me asleep on the sofas in the room, when I realized just how lucky I am to be a DB. Externally, it was just a short guy sitting on the floor, watching the TV. Internally, it was a PROFOUNDLY deep moment of pride and gratitude to be associated with such amazing people.

Profoundly grateful for my children this morning. Yes, since I became a dad, I have less time to devote to being a deadly stick fighter. Frankly, since I became a dad, I have less time for everything. Anyone who tells you that having kids is 100% smooth sailing is lying. Sometimes, my kids are like cigarettes; they are shaving minutes/years off of my life. However, all of that stuff you hear about being fulfilled by being a parent is true. It's nothing to take lightly, though. Becoming a full DB, passing my Thai Boxing Association instructor's test, and earning a doctorate were all WAY easier than being a good father.
