70 Wonderful Years!

It is hard to believe my mother is 70 today. I like what she had to say on her Facebook profile - 70 is the new 50! It's a privilege to be the son of such a remarkable woman. Her intelligence and the way she gives her best to life's endeavors are just two qualities that make me marvel at mom. Anne Alice Evans Donnell, I love you. Thanks for sharing part of that 70 with me. May God grant us many more years together!

Nashville Flood

This film by Michael Deppisch is a short but effective chronicle of this past weekend's devastation. Read Nashville author Ann Patchett's thoughts on the flood in the New York Times. For some incredible photos check out this collection on the Boston Globe's website. To donate online to flood relief efforts visit the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee website.

UPDATE: If you haven't read the post that inspired the "We Are Nashville" response to the flooding click here. It's an inspiring read.
