February 1st… the day my sister Jane was born. She is a constant in my life, a constant reminder that life has much to offer. We can get the most or the least out of it… and she will always get the most.
Jane and her husband, Dan, find the most amazing things. From delicious food to the most interesting places to visit… they do it all and they do it well.
They brought us to The Noodle House in Portland and they were right, it was amazing. When it comes to what to eat… They. Just. Know.
One time… on an Oregon coast overnight… they brought everything needed to stuff jalapeños with sausage, spices and cream cheese. They baked them in the beach house rental and about killed us with the aroma. It hurt so good. Made us all want more.
That’s what they do. They make you want more.
My suggestion… have someone in your life… if you’re not it… who knows how to find the fantastic… the unbelievably wonderful… the “you’ll never forget it.” That’s what my sister Jane and her husband Dan do.
Now… I could have chosen to focus this day on the negative Geppetto’s review which was posted. But… life is way too short. We can lift others up or tear each other down. We can seek that which is amazing and share it with others or we can spend our lives seeking to destroy.
The choice is ours.
Choose a weapon… or use your time on Earth to leave positive ripples.
Dan retired after decades at Boeing and took up wood working. They brought us a beautiful wine barrel which is a centerpiece at Geppetto’s now. Dan and Jane love Geppetto's.
I will cherish the good and look forward to more. Life is short. I thank God for those who seek the best and the most wonderful. If you don’t have a Jane and Dan in your life… Maybe you’re it.
