I woke up this morning, left the house at 6:30 to go pick up breakfast for my meeting…and got to wear shorts! Wow…the calendar still tells me it’s Winter, but it feels like Spring. The sun came on out, the temp continued to rise. I came home for lunch and my daughter was in a perfect mood that makes me smile all the time. The NCAA tourney started today, and my Bulldogs tipoff tomorrow evening on their quest for the NCAA Title. My wife mowed the yard. Can it get any better?
Well, I guess if there was no bombing going on. On one hand, it almost seems a detatched reality. I think we in the U.S. have gotten so used to seeing fighting and war and other stuff on the nightly news that some of this we’re seeing on the news now isn’t hitting home as hard as it should. It amazes me that folks in other countries are getting more stirred up about it than the majority of the folks here stateside.
As I type my daughter is trying to set up a tea party for the two of us. She has no clue about what is going on in the world (although she does say “bak-et-ball” when I’m watching the tourney) and I wonder how much she’ll learn about these current events in her history classes one day.
