8/22/16 RMB Celebrate

8/22/16 RMB Celebrate

Dear Rita Mae Brown,

After a long hot summer, cooler air is welcome and appreciated. This summer, as often happens, brought fires. Some more damaging than others. One very close to home.

After only one hour of evacuation preparation, the danger was passed. On a day nearing 100 degrees, fire fighters laden with heavy gear, in those big yellow jackets and pants, worked their magic. For every home lost, whole neighborhoods are saved.

There is a saying, “Celebrate what you want to see more of.” Give recognition, appreciation and attention to what matters most.

Today is a special day, Teddy’s birthday. As we celebrate her day and a wonderful friendship, I am reminded of the many things there are to be thankful for, too many to list and each of us has our own list.

Today mine includes Teddy, firefighters, cool air and you.
