bookend days

        Today is Sunday, and Sundays aren’t like all the other days.  Sundays are a break from the rat race.  They’re our chance to relax and recharge.  But Sundays are more than that.  They’re remembering days.  They give you a chance to remember all the good things you’ve lived since the last Sunday -- the hurdle you got over at work; the good news of a new baby or new perspective or new courage; the meals you enjoyed; the good company; the friendship repaired; the deal done; the fear assuaged; the encouraging word.  Sundays give you a chance to say thank-you for the old week before the new one takes over.  Sundays are bookend days.
