Small stuff that I am grateful for today: Delivering the first bunch of planters and elevated garden boxes made by some truly amazing young folks for some truly amazing seniors! Seriously, no words can express the joy of today. You really just had to be there.

Bonus: Being serenaded by Mister Jose! I’m still crying! I’ve had some AMAZING days thus far in 2010, but this might just be the most amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you to our team for Iowa State University/Memorial Lutheran Church, Miss Effie, and our wonderful seniors in Smithridge. And to my NIU team–as David Hasselhoff would sing in the most bizarre fashion imaginable–“I’m hooked on a feeling…I’m high on believing.”

Small stuff that I am grateful for today: Having the honor and privilege to meet with some dedicated local community members to kick off what I believe will be a pretty darn cool project and more.

Bonus: Having the opportunity to learn a little community history and getting a new book (straight from the hands of the author) that will help me learn a whole lot more about my community’s history.
