1. Spending the entire day with extended family (some of whom I haven’t seen in literally 16 years). It could have been very awkward, but it wasn’t at all. The power of blood connections is really remarkable. I’m grateful I had the opportunity, and will cherish it for a long, long time.
2. Getting to help my uncle set up his first blog! So cool. Welcome to the blogosphere R! 🙂
3. Seeing two duck babies swimming side by side, learning to be independent while still depending on each other.
(Interestingly, a few minutes later I saw a mama and a daddy duck accompanying eight new babies across a shopping mall parking lot. Every being has to learn independence – but each of us also needs to know when it’s wise to depend on others, too.)
