We decided to celebrate
Adam's great job qualifying for the finals in track.
And to celebrate Guy's awesome nomination for Teacher of the Year.
We chose not to wait until after the track finals. Adam did a great job on his qualifiers. It was tempting to wait until he had his very last race to see how well he did, but then we realized that we were missing an opportunity to enjoy the "Here and Now". His success in the qualifiers would be diminished by waiting, win or lose in the final race.
And the same for Guy. His nomination was special all on it's own. It was a red letter day, just because it was.
It reminded me of the talk by Dieder F. Uchdorf where he reminds us to "Forget not... to Be Happy Now".
