LIFE GOES ON
Tomorrow, May 12, is "Poem on Your Pillow Day." According to instructions, you are to find a nice poem, and leave it on the pillow of someone in your home. It can be any kind of poem. I'm thinking of leaving the Iliad and the Odyssey on Jie's pillow...both books. But I'm rethinking that, partly because tomorrow is also "Limerick Day," and I could hit two birds with one stone by just leaving a limerick on her pillow.
How's this? I'd love to sing loud and sing proud.
But I'm embarrassed I might draw a crowd.
So, in public I'm dour.
Though I sing in the shower.
The only time singing loud is allowed.
(not original...just one of the few things I found...that I could actually print in a church newsletter.)
Tomorrow is also Odometer Day. I am told that the first odometer was designed in China almost 2000 years ago. The word comes from Greek: "hodos" (path) + "metros" (measure) = measurement of the path. Anyway...I usually check my car odometer to see when to change the oil (it is time!) And my smart phone has an odometer I can check to see how far I've walked, but I only like to check it on days when I've gone on a really long hike. The rest of the time it makes me feel guilty.
Tomorrow is Nutty Fudge Day...if you are looking for any gift ideas.
And it is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, an affliction that is difficult to diagnose but makes life very difficult for a number of people I've known. We pray for those we know and for a cure.
