August Happiness Challenge -- Day 22

Today's happiness --  Good hair. Today I had the whole shebang -- cut, color and highlights. After those dark, pandemic days when I had a mullett, I appreciate a fresh hair cut so much more than I did before.

It was also nice to talk to Tony. I've known him, literally, for decades. I know his kids. So it was comforting to discuss my friend Nancy with him. She lost her son suddenly last month. I want to be a good friend to her, but I've never been a parent so I'm not sure I'm coming through. Not that Tony has lost one of his kids -- they're both healthy and fine. But he shared some insights about parenting that I will keep backpocket next time I talk to her.
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.
