Feb 7 is

Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day
When : Always February 7th
Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day is the perfect opportunity to greet your neighbor with a big wave. But, to show your respect and appreciation on this very important day, you must wave with all of your fingers!
Without a doubt, this day was created to put a smile on your face, and upon your neighbors. It's intent is to be friendly and create better relations. We believe you should also use the term "Neighbor" loosely.

Go out and greet everyone today with a big five fingers wave.


Top Ten on Tuesday:
Top Ten Questions on my mind this evening:
1. How come the belt on my vacuum cleaner shredded again? And why must a burnt out belt smell so ghastly?
2. How does one develop character? Not the "he's such a character..." type of character, but the real thing. Can you simply decide to develop it, or does it come from one's responses to some of life's unfortunate experiences? Is it always a painful process? When someone is said to be lacking in character, is it their mother's fault?
3. Is the rubbing sound normal? When I back up or turn sharp corners, my truck is making this noise...
4. How fair is it to have acne and wrinkles on the same face?
5. Easter is coming. What did we do that made Him love us that much? What did I do? Why is my response to that love so lukewarm some days?
6. Why can't I wrap my head around "apeture" and f-stops? I WILL read my camera manual in Palm Springs.
7. How can one spontaneous hug from a child wield so much power? I believe that's the first time I've ever used the word wield.
8. Do people who have track suits ever wear anything else in the evenings?
9. Am I fulfilling God's purpose for my life? Is this why I was born? To send out 1,000's of pieces of mail per month at work, to worry myself sick over the three humans I gave birth to and to wear track pants every evening?
10. It doesn't end when they graduate, does it? There's no "Phew, we made it..." as they finish high school. You keep on worrying and loving desperately even after they're married, don't you? You feel their pain, share their hurts, rejoice with them in their victories ... still endure sleepness nights and long days as they navigate their way through life. It's never over - this burden of loving someone more than you love yourself...this joy of loving someone more than you love yourself...
