Sometimes it’s good
to put the paddle down
and just let the canoe glide.
~ Simon Mainwaring
Don’t re-live the past.
Don’t obsess about the future.
Remember, everyday is a ca-new day.
~ Ruth Kaiser
The very best thing about today is that my precious Hillary was born and I became a mommy! There’s no greater sense of connection in my life than the one this role provides. Lucky, lucky, lucky.
On this day in 1996 the Macarena rose to the #1 spot on the pop charts. I double dog dare you to try to assert you didn’t do it. We all did, even if just a little.
Check it out over on our AUGUST calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness. Today we celebrate Balloon Day! Finding Smiley Faces with balloons is so easy! You get a different Balloon Smiley there.
Additionally, it’s Waffle Day. Would birthday girl Martha Stewart, born this day in 1944, approve of these waffles? Not into waffles? Today’s other food holiday might suit you better. It’s also Watermelon Day. Martha could host a birthday bash for these co-celebrants: Martin Sheen (1940), Tony Bennett (1926), and Brent Kutzle (1985).
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
