Day 72, March 13

A week and a half ago, much of the nation, perhaps even the world, watched the Oscars.  I didn't.  Not because I don't respect talent and persistence in pursuing that talent, because I do.  But I find other expressions of that talent and persistence more appealing.

Okay.  So, what do I respect?

I respect the mother and father who are always there, doing the hard work of parenting.
I respect the worker who shows up every day, no excuses.
I respect the volunteer who gives of his time and energy to help others.
I respect the friend who listens without judging.
I respect the teacher who imparts knowledge and caring to his/her young charges.

Joy for today:  watching real talent in action.
