Maggie turns 14 today. I found this email I sent out a few years ago and it’s still true today.
Today is Maggie’s birthday! Hard to believe we have a 10 year old in the house. We have officially gotten a child into double digits.
I can just hear all of the applause right now.
The biggest lesson that Maggie has taught me so far….enthusiasm makes the difference.
For some reason, God blessed us with one of the most enthusiastic people I have ever met.
She just radiates it.
It comes across in the class room at school.
It shows up at church on Sunday.
It shows up at the dinner table.
What if we could add just a little bit of that to our attitudes?
What if at the next meeting your first response to every idea was “That sounds awesome!”?
What if the next plan your spouse shared with you was met with “Great idea, babe, can we start right now?”
What if working out tomorrow morning could be met with a smile and a “This is gonna be fun!”?
What if we could be a little more like Maggie?
To quote a typical Maggie response, “Gee, Dad that sounds like fun!”
Make it a great day.
