August Happiness Challenge -- Day 17

Today's happiness: The "W" flag. I saw it twice today.
First, when my nephew texted me a photo of the wall of his college dorm room. He just moved in today, but he wanted to share with me that he decorated with a poster of the Beatles crossing Abbey Road, a tin replica of the Wrigley Field marquee (which I gave him), and the "W" flag. 

I was pleased that, as he enters this new phase of his life, he's taking the things we share with him. And I was touched that, on this first night in a new place, he reached out to me.

Then, when the Cubs beat the Pirates 1-0. Chicago fans who made the trip to Pittsburgh displayed the flag in the stands. Our heroes in Cubbie blue have won 7 of their last 10. This is the way to enter the home stretch!


Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.
