A few things that are making me happy this week and that I’m grateful for:
The capacity to accept difficult circumstances without getting angry is a wonderful character trait. When I’m moody and withdrawn, I’m grateful for the patience of others.
Earlier this week, Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke testified on Capitol Hill that insurers should provide no-cost contraception. American radio talk show host and conservative voice Rush Limbaugh called Fluke a slut and a prostitute and “joked” that she should release sex tapes. His comments unleashed a slew of criticism and at least six advertisers have pulled their ads from Limbaugh’s show.
It is beautiful, educational, moving, and nourishes the soul.
After days of rain and cold, a bright, warm, sunny day is most welcome.
