Major Life Changes - LBC 02/05/16

This week's LBC topic comes from yours truly.  Major life changes. Births, deaths, moves, successes, failures - you know - the stuff of which a life is made and lived. Usually while you are busy making other plans.  Commonly known these days as your Timeline on Facebook.

1) Birth - 1949 in Pueblo, Colorado
2) Moved to California summer of 1959
3) Graduated from high school 1967
4) Married 1972

Stuff like that. Life.  The journey. Its all about the journey and how you handle the speed bumps long the way. My speed bumps include two cross-country moves. The birth of my two kids and the subsequent births of  my five grandchildren. A move to Texas, Lynn's HD diagnosis, subsequent death and lastly a move to North Carolina. Just like that there is the skeleton of a life.

Whether you believe life is a random set of happenings, fate or directed by God matters little. It unfolds - offers challenges and in the end when your time is up the sum of your experiences is your life, The faithful see the hand of God in everything. I don't, but I also do not belittle those that do.  I'll take responsibility for my actions - good, bad and indifferent.  Embrace change. Deal with it.


  1. Embrace change and deal with it. Yup, that about sums it up.

  2. And all those years with Radio Shack. Seems you have had an interesting life. Not only that you have a handsome family, Chuck. All the best with your new adventures.
