“Have you noticed that even the busiest people are never too busy to take time to tell you how busy they are?”

Bob Talbert (American, newspaper columnist, 1939-1999)

TIME:  4:07 PM
PLACE:  Grade school
SUBJECT:  Fruit on a Hawthorn tree

*Sigh* Just another relaxing day on my day off.  I spent my morning at school, helping out with the PTA’s annual Santa’s Cottage.  Santa’s Cottage is an event that lets the kids shop for family and friends in the gym.  The “cottage” has small gifts, knickknacks and other items that range in prices from 25 cents to four dollars.  Then it was off to the beautician for a haircut at 11:30am and then to the grocery store to pick up ice cream for the 4th & 5th grade boys basketball celebration after school.  I also stopped by the bakery to pick up a cake HH had ordered.  At the celebration, HH took individual and team photos of the boys; I served them cake and ice cream and our town’s police chief and a local Paralympic athlete stopped by at HH’s invitation, to congratulate the boys on working hard this season and the importance of giving their best in all that they do.  Ahh, well…I was busy for good causes, there is always Thursday to get other things done.

No wonder you need to look at the trees from time to time.
