Hello friends and family. How are you? I’ve decided to rename my life update posts, if that’s okay with you. David Days is now David’s Daily. Why the change, because when I thought about it, what is a David Day? Is it when things are uplifting, adventurous, crazy, or dull? Thus the change. I may or may not edit this header image I’m using for my daily posts.
Two nights ago, I stared at the ceiling in my room and reflected on my week. It wasn’t a bad one, but I felt like it could have been a bit better. I didn’t feel quite as productive and motivated in some areas as I could have been. Today I wasn’t just going to sit around and chill Sunday style.
- Went to the gym
- Cleaned bathroom mirror
- Washed dishes
- Ironed clothes, even though I wear a uniform 80 percent of the week.
- Washed clothes.
- Wrote in journal.
- Post this blog post.
I should have mentioned this sooner, but I wanted to respect a certain loved one’s privacy. I’m an uncle once again. My little sister had her baby last month. I won’t share a picture because I’m not sure my sister would appreciate a public post with her child. All I can tell you is that baby Julien is a beautiful mix of his father and his mother. I’m truly happy for Christina and my brother-in-law Geraldo. May God Bless them. I haven’t had the chance to meet my nephew yet, but I look forward to the day that I get the chance.
With another addition to the family the question has come up about when I will make some additions to the family. My answer to that is: when I find the right woman and preferably when I’m married to start having kids. I know people within my age range these days are making babies and tying the knot like no tomorrow, but I’m not everybody else. I would like to have all that one day, but I don’t think it’s the right time for me. I am on my own timeclock; not yours.
Last Monday night, it was snowing here in Clarksville, or as my father calls it, Clucksville. It’s crazy considering that day was the first day of Spring. This doesn’t surprise me at all. Clarksville has bipolar weather. It can be below freezing one week and be warm the next. And there is always some fool who has their butt cheeks out or strolling strolling around without a jacket during these cold days. Then they have the nerve to complain about being sick.
Two Saturdays ago was a special day for myself and the rest of my pathfinder group. It was Global Youth Day, a day celebrated since 2013, in which Youth around the world do a service to the community. In celebration of the day, our Pathfinders; Adventurers; Eager Beavers; and staff stood on sides of the road with signs in hands, offering hugs and prayers.
Though not a lot of people stopped by as we were hoping for, it was a beautiful way of letting people know that we there in the community, and that we deeply cared about everyone in it. After standing outside with our signs, we gathered together in a short service of singing; prayer; discussion; and devotion reading.
