A spoonful of sauerkraut on New Year’s Day.
Pitchers and catchers report.
Seeing the first flower pushing through hard ground, a robin sitting on a tree branch or a blossom on the crab apple trees.
The CBS commercials with that familiar piano music advertising The Masters.
Daylight Savings Time.
The chirp of your smoke detectors, alerting you to change your 9-volt battery.
Your physical exam with your doctor.
The “check engine” light.
The moment of silence on September 11th.
My visit to Resurrection Cemetery on February 17th to honor my Dad.
He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.
— Clarence Budington Kelland
I’ve said it here before and I’ll say it here again. If your father is still alive, call him today and tell him you love him. Or tell him “thanks.” Or just say hello. One of these days, you’ll wish you had another opportunity.
If your father isn’t alive but your mother is, call her and tell her you love her. Or tell her “thanks.” Or just say hello. One of these days, you’ll wish you had another opportunity.
Annual reminders are good. They help us remember those things that we should never forget.
