Zachary's little birthday party was a delight. We gave him a little blue camel back pack to take on the trip later this summer and he loved it and used it while playing in the yard and riding his bike - well celebrated boy. We played a game at the table - What is one reason you like having Zachary in the world. here are some of our answers.
Grandma - He is strong and kind and the world needs more people who are both strong and kind.
Grandpa - He has a great smile and the world needs more smiles.
Auntie - He comes into the room and says "I just love today."
K.K. - He's funny. He makes me laugh.
Danny - He shares his toys and plays with me.
David - He was born on my birthday and is my very good friend.
Bob and I had a really restful nap after the party and then went on to delight in the Longhorn's baseball victory over TCU for a trip to the COllege WOrld Series in Omaha. Go Horns!
In the process of listening to baseball coverage I learned that today is Jakie Robinson Day, so it seems right to use a courage quote by that man.
Whatever obstacles I found made me fight all the harder. But it would have been impossible for me to fight at all, except that I was sustained by the personal and deep-rooted belief that my fight had a chance.
