A funny thing happened on the way to the next day.

So its been a while since I have updated my blog. And lots has gone on.....

First of all, let me formally announce the birth of my daughter, Arowyn Emma Elli Daw, born Feb.23 2010 at 8:29am weighing 8lbs 4 oz.

She is cute is as a button and has me wrapped around her little finger already.

I was sitting there watching my daughter, talking to my wife and I said wouldn't it be nice if I had a little better contact with my brothers and sister. See I have three older brothers, and one sister. And due to life styles and locations it is very rare that we see each other, let alone talk. When out of the blue, the very next morning my brother Philip calls me.

Now I haven't talked to my brother for a long time and the passion that my brother has for me and what I have done in my life is incredible. He has been a long supporter of me since I was a wee little kid, one of the oldest memories I have and greatest memories I have is of my brother Philip helping me train in Thompson arena in London, Ontario, trying to do wind sprints against a sprinter. I will give him credit, he did well, but at the end of the day I know he was on the verge of a heart attack. Phil and I have always kind of one up each other all of our lives. Are my biceps bigger than his.... can I lift more, or can he?? At the end of the day, every body needs to be able to reflect on the little moments like those which truly make you who are today.

I love my family like no one else, and regardless of the distance or the time that goes by, I have always been able to reflect on the good, for the most.
