Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 192 – For The Greater Good

Not a lot of very innovative giving this Independence Day, but hopefully valuable to the family nonetheless … Took a long afternoon bike ride with my son … cooking supper on the barbecue tonight … and in spite of my intrepidation , I am taking my family to see one of the big fireworks displays.

There comes a time when one must put aside one’s own preferences for that of the greater good.

I have never liked fireworks. But this year, I’m sucking it up so my wife and children can see one of the big firework displays. By any standard, this is a tiny sacrifice, but one I should have made a long time ago.

Who knows, maybe I’ll learn to like them.

Happy Independence Day, everyone!
