In one of my earliest posts on this site, Getting Started (actually on the first day I made public posts, I believe) I mentioned the quote attributed to Mark Twain:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Since then, lots of metaphorical water have passed under the bridge. A fair amount of wood has been cut and fastened together. I still don’t have a finished boat, although I do now have something that I think would float.

In this last week I’ve been dealing with a family member who had a major health issue (thus my absence here). Hopefully he is on the mend, although there are still some tests and concerns that we are praying about. In sitting around in hospitals and the like, I got to thinking that sometimes you need to grab for that dream and go for it!

Although it has had its ups and downs, I am very glad that I started my build, and this all just makes me want to move ahead and get on the water.

Regardless of your dreams and whether you get to attack them or not, enjoy the moment and try to enjoy whatever you are doing. Have fun with those kids, they will be grown before you know it (or maybe not soon enough for some :-)).
