There are some moments in life that I remember much more clearly than others. Generally though, moments in time blend into the day to day and soon a week, a month, or even a year has slipped by within the blink of an eye.
Today, I want to take a minute to mention a few moments that in the years to come will probably not stand out as anything too significant in the long road but have contributed to a wonderful day.
1. I had the opportunity to share my love of books and reading with a fantastic group of little people (ages 6 months - 4 years). One book that is shared with them every week during story time is the "exercise" book (From Head to Toe by Eric Carle). Not only are they learning to recognize the words (and beginning to learn how to read), we incorporate activity into something that is usually sedentary (as well as get those wiggles out).
2. I was fortunate to enough to be able to offer a job to someone who was very excited to come and work for my organization. The excitement in her voice in that phone call left me with a great feeling.
3. I received a follow up call from my new doctor regarding the blood work that I had done a few weeks ago. This was the first time I've had a physician personally call to discuss the results (usually it's the nurse or a letter in the mail). Fantastic news, everything looks great and is at the perfect levels with one exception... need more Vitamin D (take 2 5,000IU D3). Simple enough. And it's fantastic to know that all those measurements (sugar, cholesterol, etc) are within normal range.
