1. Watching a bluebird sit on her nest (which she built just outside our kitchen window). It’s amazing to have such a close-up view to nature’s lifecycle.
2. Reading a terrific true exchange shared by one of my teaching friends:
Student: “Can I do any extra credit to bring my grade up?”
Teacher: “Sure. Write ‘Extra Credit’ on top of your missing assignments and turn them in.”
3. Seeing American flags of all shapes and sizes around town today. The older I get, the more meaningful Memorial Day becomes to me. Many thanks to all of those past and present who have made tremendous sacrifices to ensure I retain the liberties and freedoms I enjoy every day.
