Happiness: Day One

Three things that made me happy today:

  1. Unexpected dinners out with family.  Thanks again, Big Bad!
  2. Small town festivals.  In today's case, specifically, our town's Octoberfest.  The afternoon thunderstorm may have cancelled the much anticipated parade, but you can't beat the atmosphere that exists in the streets of a village's annual celebration.
  3. The support that comes when a small town rallies around one of its own.   During Octoberfest today the streets were draped in pink with people sporting their Kourageous Kaysen shirts.  Her older sister, Calleigh, set up a lemonade stand to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House, the place where Kaysen and her parents are staying until they are cleared to go home, and I'm sure she sold out in no time.
