A high school friend and her partner (they are a gay couple) had a baby boy on March 12th. I am stalking his pictures on their FB pages. That makes me smile every day--they had to go through a lot to make it happen and they couldn't be happier (we graduated in 1977--most of our friends are grandparents, it is really nice to see someone who has made a longtime dream come true). I am so happy for both of them. And he is the cutest baby on the planet, I swear, and has HUGE hands. One of his mom's was a basketball player...I can see her getting him out on the court as soon as the weather turns nice in MN.

I'm a Pisces too. And the other thing that made me smile today was that you are back HOME.

I went to Lowes to pick up some hardware and met a very sweet little dog.

Her owners told me they're training her to be a reading dog.

They explained that they are both retired teachers and she (the dog will go into elementary classrooms so the children can read to her in a one to one basis without feeling pressure or ashamed if they struggle with their reading.

Children gravitate toward animals so it seems like a wonderful idea.

Whatever gets kids reading.

Love the concept and the dog was a sweetie. Both made me smile.

:). :) :)
