He suddenly developed a sore throat before the cramping started. I ran out and found a Rite-aid 5 minutes away. Bought him orange juice, Emergen-C, and Vit. C throat lozenges. The runner up is a solid player, and it was so nice to see them both enjoying playing with one another. When coach came around asking if I or others had anything salty, his opponent's grandparents gave him a can of almonds! The nicest, most gracious family. What a joy to see young players who are honest and good. What a joy to see people who just wished the boys well. Now that's the way to play tennis!
So 9:16 this morning brought in the 2nd year mark for Ken's passing. Luckily there wasn't much going on at work this morning, because I welled up a few times. My students didn't see. I was so glad that it wasn't hectic. A quiet day otherwise. We watched 'The Secret' at the end of the day. It is a feel good, inspirational movie based on the book. So what started out as a possibly weepy day, turned into a beautiful day full of wonderful memories. I turned on Jim Brickman Radio for the class, and it set the tone for a peaceful and uplifting day.
We truly must find the good in every day. Sometimes it may be difficult, but I always wake up saying thank you, and fall asleep saying thank you. If I am cranky and can't find much to be thankful about I thank God for my family , cats, and tulips and lilacs, my favorite flowers.
Got a terrific fortune in my fortune cookie today. At first I thought it was the silliest thing, and then I re-read it.
Fear came knocking at my door. Faith answered it. There was no one there.
With faith, fear is gone. May you have a faithful and blessed day.
