Day 120: 4/30/2014

For a glimpse of the sun after being indoors all day. For little slivers of the impending summer and promises of warmth and sunshine once again

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Day 119: 4/29/2014

For opportunities to meet a sweet old soul before they move on. I love how life works out sometimes where we are afforded the chance to spend time with another living being, and have their presence firmly imprinted in our hearts before they have to leave us. It was my pleasure to have met you Nicholas and I will see you in another life

Day 118: 4/28/2014

For video game tournaments at work to break up the monotony of the day and to foster comradarie. Something as simple as getting people together to enjoy each other's company makes the workplace a much better place

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Day 117: 4/27/2014

For photos sent to me from up in the air when I myself am not able to soar through the skies. Nothing better that shared photos of someone else flying through the clouds and enjoying the freedom of flight

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Day 116: 4/26/2014

For mug after mug of coffee on a Saturday morning. I love how the taste and smell of amazingly brewed coffee is able to start my day off just right

Friday, April 25, 2014

Day 115: 4/25/2014

For spending quality time at my local airport watching planes take-off and land as the sun sets in the distance. This is the perfect finish to my day of great landings in gusting winds

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Day 114: 4/24/2014

For a view like this when unwinding from a long work week on the road. This scene brings about a sense of stillness and mindfulness that gives me inner peace. There is just so much beauty on the world 

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Day 113: 4/23/2014

For a little sanctuary when life on the road gets a little out of control. Whenever I travel for work, it is always stressful and brings along long hours at the office. This little cafe offered me a moment of peace and quiet before I have to step back into reality

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Day 112: 4/22/2014

For fast internet connection in a small town when you are traveling for work. Call it first world problems but I am thankful for fast internet connectivity and here's a reminder to never take it for granted

Monday, April 21, 2014

Day 111: 4/21/2014

For small miracles that come to you when you are starting to give up hope. I have gone through hellfire and back to earn this piece of paper. Without this, my dreams of aviating the skies are as good as buried. Now it is time for me to earn that dream of mine and soar the skies as a licensed pilot

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Day 110: 4/20/2014

For sunny and warm mornings that makes flying a meditative process. Got an early start to the day and spent it taking in my surroundings at the airport. Sometimes I get so concerned about my own flight that I forget to take a step back and enjoy the moment and my surroundings. Happy Easter!

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Day 109: 4/19/2014

For moments as such to remind you to slow down and just be. I love how they just are and will continue to just be

Friday, April 18, 2014

Day 108: 4/18/2014

For a wonderful co-worker/teammate and friend who brings you coffee to start of an exhausting day. Thoughtfulness goes a long way to building comradarie 

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Day 107: 4/17/2014

For the ability to smile after an extremely crazy few weeks at work. It was 45 degrees out but was surprisingly sunny, so I took the chance to enjoy the relative "warmth". A little sunshine can always work miracles

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Day 106: 4/16/2014

For childhood photos that brings you right back to when it was taken. I can still remember how my grandmother smells and the way she would always carry me up to her lap so we could snuggle. Sometimes a short jaunt back to our past is just all we need

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Day 105: 4/15/2014

For the ability to work from home late at night. It is not really something to be grateful for really, working more than necessary, but that just means I am employed. Sometimes it is the little things within the bigger picture

Monday, April 14, 2014

Day 104: 4/14/2014

For food that is able to turn your day around with just that first bite. Nothing chases all ills away for me like Sushi can, which is a rather strange phenomenon but easy to achieve at least

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Day 103: 4/13/2014

For a lazy Sunday afternoon spent with fellow pilots at the airport, talking, practicing on the simulator and more talking. Friends can be found just about anywhere if you are willing to just spend time doing absolutely nothing

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Day 102: 4/12/2014

For views like these that reminds you of how beautiful it all is when you take a look at it from a different view. The promise of flying yet another day is what keeps me going when the week has been long and weary. Up there is where all problems are forgotten, for at least a little while and that is always enough for me

Friday, April 11, 2014

Day 101: 4/11/2014

For old friends that pick up where they left off after a long time apart. Friendships like these are amazing and is what makes being alive oh so much better

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Day 100: 4/10/2014

For being given the chance to take a sneak peak inside a Star Trek themed conference room and take photos as proof. Pretty sure rooms like these will make any meeting worthwhile (and necessary)

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Day 99: 4/9/2014

For an unexpected invitation to enjoy a motorcycle ride on a 70 degree Spring day. The wind in my face, the feel of intense speed and time spent with a friend. All priceless in its own way 

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Day 98: 4/8/2014

For warmer and sunny spring days and walks with the dog. Being able to walk on the sidewalk without trudging through snow and ice is a miracle in itself

Monday, April 7, 2014

Day 97: 4/7/2014

For reading about fun yet pretty dangerous manuvers that I will get to hopefully try out and make it out alive. Nothing beats knowing your limits and getting an understanding of the situation before it happens while I am by my lonesome

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Day 96: 4/6/2014

For sunny spring days after a long and harsh winter. Sitting outside in shorts to read in April is Godsent and I couldn't ask for a better Sunday

Saturday, April 5, 2014

Day 95: 4/5/2014

For an evening of reading and coffee after a full day of activities. Nothing winds me down better than reading and sipping on some coffee (or flying but that's for another blog entry). While a coffee shop may be horribly noisy, it is nothing a good pair of headphones can't fix

Friday, April 4, 2014

Day 94: 4/4/2014

For finding my giggle moments while feasting on lunch. I have always been amazed at what makes me laugh uncontrollably, and it almost never makes sense. Today apparently was the fact that the lime wedge looked furry. Does not make sense I know but it made my day

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Day 93: 4/3/2014

For movies delivered to your doorstep as often as you would like. Nothing beats being lazy by not even working hard to procure said movie

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Day 92: 4/2/2014

For hour long lunch breaks spent in the office parking lot right under the flight path of a major airport. Watching airplanes arriving and departing for a full hour nourishes me so much more than any meal ever would (or could). A stressful day at work can be turned around by laying on my back and looking skyward on a cloudless sunny day

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

Day 91: 4/1/2014

For strong gusting winds, sleet and snow in April. Not something to be thankful for, but I am grateful that for days as such, I am able to find my sense of humor and give nods to Mother Nature for pulling the ultimate April Fools trick
