First day of Thanksgiving 2015 School Break

Blurry photo
This recent, blurry photo is a good metaphor for this post. Time flies and we look back in a blur.


First day of Thanksgiving 2015 School Break. The high school freshman will learn to manage his free time because he has a week of it, yet he has a fair amount of homework.

The small business entrepreneur must also learn to manage time. The temptation to work all day, everyday is strong because what he does never feels like work.

Both the teen and the dad will only get a few of these type of weeks – “no official work required” – abundant time together, lots of options for things to do.

Thanksgiving at home?

Here’s to hoping the original vision for the original Thanksgiving Day doesn’t get lost on us with the food and the football.

Be well and remain amazed…

And thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving To All

Happy Thanksgiving to every single one of you. It’s a wonderful time of the year to remind ourselves of everything we have to be thankful for.

Since this is the last of the five-a-day blogs I’ve written today, all sharing the thanksgiving theme, I’ll simply share them here with you.

If you already follow the others, here’s something new. It’s your choice, every day, to be thankful. This is one of the first rules adults should teach children.

And the best tip for teaching children, is for your life to be your message.

Thanksgiving in July?

Thanksgiving in July?


Actually, what about Thanksgiving every single day?

I’m sitting here at the in-store McDonald’s at a local Central Florida Wal-Mart.  Getting new tires.

Here are a few things I’m thankful for:

  1. Working for The Walt Disney Company
  2. Actually, simply being employed
  3. Being healthy, as far as I know
  4. Actually, simply being alive
  5. Living in the United States
  6. Actually, simply living in a free & safe country
  7. Being married
  8. Actually, simply being loved and able to love
  9. Being a father
  10. Actually, simply having the privilege to nurture & teach a child

Well, this isn’t exactly the post I had in mind when I woke up this morning; however, it’s the post that my fingers type as I enjoy another vacation day, in the land of the free.

With Independence Day on Saturday, I guess my subconscious took over the typing controls.

I’m OK with today’s plan not working out.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
