It just hit me that it’s been way too long since I’ve blogged. So much has been happening in my crazy life that it just made the time fly by. I hope that I’ll be able to get back to this during my term as the 87th MIJC President, especially because I’m sure there’s going to be many great stories to tell about this next year.

But for now, let’s get back to the First Quote of the Day thing that I’ve used in the past to help keep things in perspective (and for some good kicks and giggles):

I will love the light because it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars. ~ Og Mandino

When I was a kid, I wanted to goto space. At night, I’d look out the window and stare at the stars until I fell asleep. Today, when I’m driving all over Michigan, there are times when I look up from the highway (only when it’s fairly empty) to find my old friends Orion, Ursa Major, and Mars. In both cases, it always makes me smile when it is dark.
