Good Day

by Bill Brenner on February 5, 2011

It’s a good day when the two boys and their 2-year-old niece pull me out of bed at 6:30 a.m. Some would say that’s early, but for me that’s sleeping in.

It’s a good day when I can spend the morning doing house work and grocery shopping without feeling bitter or cheated about the lack of laziness.

It’s a good day when one of your best friends comes over with his kids for lunch and, while the kids play upstairs, we hang out in the living room watching music videos and dozing off.

It’s a good day when you get a little time to watch Star Wars with your kids.

It would be a better day if Erin didn’t have to work. But she’s working hard and I’m proud of everything she’s accomplished this last year.

And we’ll have a good night when the kids go to bed — even if we’re just laying on the couch watching TV. Of course, Erin watches TV. I fall asleep.

But it’s still time well spent.

Feeling grateful.

I like this. And I’m happy for you. Sometimes the good days are had to find.
