One Question A Day?

Grandfather

Hometown. Paper Mill. Three generations worked there.

Dad, what was Pap-paw like?

Jack Noel, jeff noel’s Dad, died April 10, 2001. The annual Summer trip home was planned for June. Our son never met his Grandfather.

Midlife Passion Milestone?

What prompts us recognize a milestone? What milestones are worthy of celebratory significance? How do we avoid sounding boastful?

Some things, like births and deaths, are major milestones we mark by recalling them each year. Some with celebration. Some with sorrow.

Today is a bit of both.

My Dad, Jack Noel, left his earthly life April 10, 2001.

He and our son never met.  A summer trip home had been planned for June, but it was too late.

I learned a lot from my Dad, by what he did and didn’t do, but not from what he said.  We didn’t talk much. Conversation between us was challenging.

Come to find out, I have so much to say that today marks the 2,000th blog post at Mid Life Celebration, LLC.

Five daily blogs. One midlife passion prescription.

Hey Dad, how’s Carter doing up there? 🙂 Miss you both.
