This is post number 272. While not one of those milestone numbers, it is significant. That's how many times I have born witness, contemplated, participated, and written about the world around me, however small.
Even more reason, is my youngest daughter. She entered a photo into the Maryland State Fair and one a First Place ribbon. Wow! She was quite subtle in her pleasure but was pleased, none the less. It's quite a thing to be 15, see your photo with a ribbon on it among hundreds of photos. Kudos to you Audrey.
And, oldest daughter, started classes and auditioned for the Chamber Singers at Towson University. She had call backs and made the group. Woohoo!
And after some worry about a cough, the Handsome One is on some antibiotics and cough medicine and feeling much better.
While celebration was in order, it wasn't in the calendar. Instead, it just brought joy, which is good enough.
