Two roads diverged in a wood and I~ Robert Frost (American – Poet / March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963)
– I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.
Holidays and Celebrations:
Happy Birthday Robert Frost (RIP). One of the most quoted and familiar American poets. The reason we dare to be different and take the path less travelled.
Today is also Purple Day, or International Epilepsy Day. A day we stop to recognize the challenges that people with Epilepsy maneuver on a daily basis, never knowing when the next crisis or seizure will occur. Courageously exploring the future. Medications and treatments have come a long way, but the side effects carry their own problems and hazards. My oldest grandson is struggling with excess weight, but his wonderful, cheerful personality shines through as he grows and explores the world.
So just like Popeye, eat your spinach and celebrate National Spinach Day. Popeye was an ordinary guy just trying to do his best, pushed to the limits he eats spinach and fights back. Winning back the peace and happiness he wanted to enjoy in the first place.
If that isn’t enough for you to celebrate today why not celebrate National Make Up Your Own Holiday. My personal favorite made up Holiday is April 7th, International Window Washing Day. But I might end up celebrating early this year if the weather continues to be so amazing.
