OK, grab your kleenex, here are a couple of nice things that happened (which, for the record, I do write about occasionally, in between rants.)
1. I made homemade pizza this weekend and it turned out well! Mr. RK, who pulls no punches, said he liked it better than any restaurant pizza. When my little sister was five (she's nine now), she told us, "I love you guys more than pizza!" Mr. RK said, "Make this pizza for her and see if she feels the same way!"
2. A woman who walked with our team last year gave me an unsolicited, totally unexpected $300 donation. She wrote, "You and your boss and your organization are priceless! Hope this helps a little." I'm going to print that out and re-read it the next time I get a mean person on the phone.
3. An amputee made the U.S. track team! Talk about success! Last week I gave a short talk about how people living with a mental illness are all too often taught to have low expectations, and that we should reject them. Ditto for people with physical disabilities, as this wonderful athlete has proven.
There, is that warm and sunny enough for you?
