How to be cool

Happy Monday!

Today the sun is shining, the birds are tweeting, the cat is luxuriously stretching, and it is a marvelous beginning to today, the birthday of my daughter Cristina. So, to celebrate, I’m posting a tribute to her. This video captures a bit of the spirit of our relationship. She is cool and I am her (very cool) backup.

Happy Birthday, Cristina!

Weekly Snippet
Tomorrow’s blog does start out with a bit of Cristina inspiration and wit. In other words, my typical experience in the texts I receive from her! However, tomorrow’s story had to diverge away from the themes of grit and determination I mentioned last week. The blog just wasn’t coming together, so I will need to grittily keep working on it to post another day.  In the meantime, here’s a quote that gives you a hint of tomorrow’s theme:

“Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. 
That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.”
Steve Martin

Until tomorrow!
