"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life, It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of your past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melody Beattie
 
This on will be a short one.  (hmm, your self talk is saying... yeah, Phil writing or saying anything that's "short" will probably only happen if he has a heart attack, mid-sentence!  Don't you just love it when you make fun of yourself the first this in the morning?!!? 
 
Well, let just say today's offering is a short or as long as you'd like to make it.  I wrote lyrics to a song about Gratitude, Patriotism, Sacrifice, Honor, Duty, Service and putting you interests and life behind others, unconditionally.  "Now there's the "old Phil" your self talk is saying.  Yep, even my email blast title was shorter than what I really wanted to write (see I'm getting better... sorta', maybe? .  OK enough with those cute little emoticons, jeez the can get irritating and distracting.
 
I wrote this song in about an hour.  Words were flowing, pretty good for a Monday... but wait... why was it different, like most weekend mornings are different, it was Memorial Day and I was inspired.  I was struck by how focus, attitude and self talk can change a day.  It happens every weekend day morning.  My entire day was changed because of my perspective and expectations.  The birds didn't know it was Memorial Day, my side-kick "Lucky LaRue" didn't really know it was Memorial Day.  She just knew it was one of those days where she get's to roam around our huge backyard, chase birds, rabbits and squirrels, get her feet muddy and the get treats when she comes and sits on her perch next to me as I stream Pandora, write stuff and watch all the clueless wonderment that goes on each morning, that I miss, because I am not out there.  I am on a work day instead of a weekend day, but all this goes on without me.  It's all about your expectations, focus and attitude.  Amazing, I'm going to start trying to start more "work week mornings" that way.
 
OK, this is getting too long already so I will give you some options.
 
THE SONG
You can click on the link below and you can read my offering of all those things I mentioned above in an epic novel (disguised as a song... OK, it's really not that long).  The song, "He Knew What He Was Doing... Do You Remember What He Did?" was inspired by my "personal Wounded Warrior", Joshua Ray, who IS playing in "The Vinny" June 1-3 next week (more on that later).  You can click on the link, the song will download as a Word Document and you can read it now, save it to your computer, or print it out to read later.
 
LUCKY LARUE  You can Click Here to see here after a hard day of playing, chasing rabbits and having fun getting dirty... http://bitly.com/DirtyLuckyLaRue  OK, in all fairness, see her in her normal amazingly cute state... http://bitly.com/LuckyLaRue
 
HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING... DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT HE DID? - Words by Phil "Delta" Dildine (Music to follow later and if I don't chop this sucker down a bit it will be a patriotic equivalent of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" Iron Butterfly's 1968 hit, just over 17 minute, lol)  Click Here It will download and you can read it now or print it out and read it later... http://bitly.com/HeKnewWhat
