A Tip of the Hat Goes to…
Bring an apple to school for NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY. These dedicated folks never really stop giving of themselves, even after the last bell rings for the day. Caring and sacrifice go along with the job as well as influencing and working to bring out the best in us. We give each and every one of these men and women a big thank you and a special tip of the hat.
Awareness Spotlight shines on…
Blue is the color to wear in support of NATIONAL FOSTER CARE DAY. There are a little less than half million children in the foster care system at any one time and only half will graduate high school. If you are interested in helping, check out Project Blue and Ticket to Dream Foundation.
Family and Friends
NATIONAL BROTHERS AND SISTERS DAY aims to bring us a little closer to those who know us best. Make sure and connect with your special siblings on this day. I am very blessed to have a wonderful sister whom I will be calling today.
Our Fishy Friends
WORLD TUNA DAY celebrates this tasty fish and helps to coordinate efforts to ensure sustainable harvesting of this magnificent creature. Tuna can weigh over 500 lbs., swim up to 45 mph, and can be found in all oceans. 96 countries are participating in the sustainable fishing programs to protect this fish that America consumes about 1 billion pounds annually. I will be celebrating this day with a tuna salad sandwich.
Education and Information
NATIONAL LIFE INSURANCE DAY reminds us to make sure our policies are up to date. It was on this date in 1759 that Presbyterian Synods in Philadelphia and New York first made life insurance available to “poor and distressed widows and orphans”. Having an up-to-date policy can do a lot of good for our loved ones when the time comes.
On Today’s Menu…
Our dessert of the day is filled with decadence. NATIONAL TRUFFLE DAY celebrates the cream filled chocolates that are as rich as they are delicious. Cream, nuts, nougat, and marshmallow are just some of the extras that go along with that ganache filling. Indulge in a few of these today.

Happy Birthday to…
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11
Enjoy the day and make it your own
