This week I am in Nicaragua visiting my 83 year old mother. I am having a great time, relaxing a little, but driving a lot; as my mother is taking me around to meet a lot of her friends and to look at some business opportunities. I have also officiated one soccer game and, using a translator, worked with a couple of local referees, giving them tips for being an Assistant Referee.
I am so very grateful that: 1) that my mother is still extremely healthy at the age of 83 2) That my mother really does have a lot of friends here in Nicaragua, who really do care for her. 3) That I am meeting new people and new friends. 4) That I am just a little crazy enough to look at some business opportunities in a Third World country. 5) and not last or least, I am grateful to hear, see and feel the Pacific Ocean every day of the week.
I am grateful to be able to laugh and relax, with family and friends.
