Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.


Here are Cee’s questions for the week:

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)

Obviously, I’d help my family and friends, set my kids up for their future, I’d retire immediately.  But, the first thing I’d buy is a place on Ocracoke.  That’s really the only extravagance I’d indulge in.

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

Seeing my boys and wife succeed, laugh, and love.  Seeing one of my patients heal and return to the life they had before.  Puppies.  A sunset.  The sounds of a summer night from the front porch.  A sky full of stars.  Being on or in water.  A field full of lightning bugs at dusk.  A butterfly landing on my arm.  The smell of a baby.  I could go on and on.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

I don’t make a big deal out of my birthdays, but if I had to pick something, it wouldn’t be a thing, it’d be an experience.  Going zip lining, or to someplace I haven’t been, or a weekend getaway.  Something fun.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Well, a couple of things this week.  Friday night, we met up with some friends and went to see Anderson East.

Small venue, intimate setting, good friends, a few drinks, and a late dinner afterwards.  Date nights are always great, and I’m always grateful for them.   And, this was a good one.

Also, on this Mother’s Day, I’m super grateful for my mom, and my wife.  My boys are blessed to have them both in their lives, and so am I.

So, to both of them, and to all of you amazing women out there who happen to be moms your selves, and whose love seems to know no bounds: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
