I was so tired today and didn't understand why. I have a big prejudice against just lying around and can't imagine feeling tired when the most strenuous thing I've done is brush my teeth. Two units of blood later I understand. I simply didn't have any fuel.
But that's not what I wanted to talk about. Ted came by this afternoon bearing gifts from the office. A stunning piece of creative work to make me laugh and read over and over. At it's heart its about what it's like to have SGDP "right there with me"- beautifully crafted, beautifully shot and uniquely individual in message from everyone- you'll never know the effect that has on me. I can feel the heart that beats at SGDP. I've got the poster version on my bathroom door, the booklet on my shelf next to my bed. And the paper flowers on my book table. Beautiful. I made Ted promise that if he looked at the time cards on this, he wouldn't tell me, we laughed and then talked for 2+ hours about business, life and loving people.
And that gets to the topic. An embarrassment of riches. No man has lived a richer life than me. No man has been luckier in love and circumstance. No man has been given more opportunities and respect and loving tolerance then me. To have a room full of friends, my family and the love of a good and wonderful women, it's simply an embarrassment of riches- this life of mine.
