I love the idea of finding a reason to celebrate. Even if it's a random Tuesday and nothing's going on. We should fight to find a reason to get excited and bring out the champagne.
It reminds me of a story I heard about a stay-at-home mom that loved to bake. One day she got a bug in her to make a birthday cake. She didn't need to check her calendar; there were no birthdays going on. But that didn't deter her. She put on her apron and slid the mixer out, determined to bake a birthday cake.
Flour. Eggs. Boiling water. Cacao. And whatever else goes into a cake...
By the time she was finished frosting it, the kids were getting off the school bus. In standard school's out protocol, the son and daughter entered the house in a flurry of dumped school bags and noise. Except this time, they had brought a friend over, for one reason or another.
Raising her voice above the shrill of life with little kids, she turned and announced, "Look what I made!" And would you believe their friend was so overwhelmed, he burst into tears of joy.
It was his birthday and no one knew!
