Our water heater and furnace both went out today. The furnace might be okay. The water heater died in spectacular fashion. The fire department was involved.

At the end of a day like today it's easy to let the crisis define it, but we don't have to choose to give it that power.

My walk to the office this morning was gorgeous. I completed a task that starts me toward a goal for the new year. I have a beautiful daughter and supportive wife. The furnace technician works after hours.
