Why I Love My Family (a sweet email from GF)

"Good morning dear Car...

I enjoyed talking to you last sounded so enthusiastic and on top of things there....You know, it reminded me

of the illustration comparing the difference between a thermometer and a thermostat....You remember that a thermometer

just registers the temperature...some people are just like that...just registering what is taking place in their lives in the

immediate time and place....but, a thermostat CHANGES the temperature...adjusts it....listening to you last evening,

reminded me that you are moving from the thermometer the thermostat setting....I like that for you...

With love,


I'm so fortunate to have such an encouraging family. They are all like this, I just hope I'm worthy of it.


  1. Your grandfather sounds like an awesome guy. I lost mine a few years ago, but his wisdom and encouragement are still with me every day. My favorite piece of advice he gave me? "Thresher: a lot of dead folks had the right of way." That stuck! :)

  2. I'm sorry for your loss, Thresh, and that is VERY good advice.
