My week was mostly spent at all-day seminars and desperately playing catch up on work because I was at said all-day seminars. But that’s boring, so I’ll try to come up with somewhat more interesting topics for this week’s High Five.
1) Penny FINALLY learned how to smile. I’d recently made the comment that I was disappointed I don’t have any of those melt-your-face-cute pictures of her as a little puppy with her mouth open, tongue hanging out – you know, just being generally adorable. And then suddenly, it happened. Granted, it only happens when she’s presented with these, but that’s just a technicality. Better late than never!
4) Without going into much detail, I recently found out that a family friend has been given only a few months to live. While that is a total “low”, it gave me the opportunity to put together a “Box of Sunshine” (as I chose to call it) to at least give him a small distraction while he battles with such a terrible situation. I made a batch of little happy face sugar cookies to throw in there, so hopefully he enjoys them.
5) If you weren’t already aware of this through knowing me personally, I’m related to NBA great Jerry West. You might recognize him as the NBA logo. No big deal. But time and time again, he proves why I’m honored to share a bloodline with him. He’s talented, honest and overall just a great guy. Check out this article to see what I mean. Also, at 75 he’s still better than you at basketball. Just sayin’.
