This is a monumental week for me as a liberal left leaning democrat. I must remember to be careful, careful of my expectations. Utopia cannot happen at once but must be built. Patience and an open mind will benefit me as we move forward.
I am ready to lay this burden of angst down and lift my wings and fly. However I will remember that I do reap what I sow.

Virgil is 15 years old today. Today will be a special day around the house complete with cake. He is our Cinco De Mayo kid.
I learn from my dogs. Since Virgil’s arrival at our home, when he was about 5 months of age, he has taught me patience. He is good at it. He is a laid back kid who is patient and serene. He goes with the flow and therefore he finds very little trouble in his life.
Happy Birthday Virgil! Thank you for the lessons you share with me and may we have many more years of sharing ahead.
One more day.
So no celebrations yet. It’s like waiting for Santa. One day to go.
No opening presents. No surprises. It’s too early. We must wait. Just one more day.
Anticipation. Excitement. Adrenaline.
Patience. Restraint. Composure. Maturity.
Don’t jump the gun. Don’t cheat.
It’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the ceremony.
The tooth fairy will not come until you sleep.
A cake is not done until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
One more day.
What can we do with it?
One day to go.
We can make the best of it.
Smile. Love. Laugh. Learn. Share. Grow. Help. Listen. Reflect. Hope. Give.
Just one more day.
It’s gonna be a great day!
