May 11

For the last seven years, May 11 has been a day to honor Mama.

She died on May 11, 2001 and every year since then on this day I do something that makes me happy. One of my mother's greatest gifts to me was that she taught me to do the things that make me happy. It's such a simple concept, but an incredibly powerful one. How many of us actually do the things that make us happy?

I do those things often. But, on May 11, I take the day off and devote it to such endeavors.

Today I went to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in Chase County Kansas. I'll have a full report on my visit soon, but suffice it to say it's well worth a visit.
