Today one of the young men in our cottage had a birthday, he turned 8. I wanted to make his day start out on a special note, so I got up 20 minutes earlier than normal so I would have time to make pancakes and sausage for breakfast. I usually just serve cold cereal on Tuesdays.
I even put special effort into these and added sprinkles. After breakfast the young man came up to me and said, “you know Mr. Mike, pancakes aren’t my favorite food!” I replied, “really, you mean if I would have just slapped a bowl of cereal in front of you, it would have been better.” He said, “Ya!!, I really like cereal.”
Mental note for next year – sleep the extra 20 minutes.
