1. Learning that my dad will get to retire in a few months! This day has long been coming; I’m so excited and happy for him that it finally gets to become a reality!
2. While archiving old emails, I re-discovered this gem from a former colleague-now-friend: “There are only 3 colors, 10 digits and 7 notes; its what we do with them that’s important.” May I always remember the amazing potential that resides in ‘simple’ things.
3. Having a stranger find one of my blog posts, and select it as her “monthly favorite”. Wow! I know my friends and family are ‘expected’ to like what I write (or at least humor me and say that they do – *wink*), but to have someone who doesn’t know anything about me read one of my posts and find it meaningful enough to share – wow. Very special.
