Every Saturday I share three simple things that brought me happiness during the week. These posts may grow or change as time passes. Please feel free to share your own simple joys in the comments section!
February 24 – March 2
On Monday morning at 7:15, I put my key in the ignition and turned. Generally speaking, this causes a car to start, but not on Monday, not my car.

She directed me to I email my boss to say that I would be late and call my grandparents to see if I could borrow their car for the day.
Pappaw* to the rescue! Within a few minutes he arrived with a different car and offered to give my battery a jump-start. It took a few tries, but he got it! I drove directly to the mechanic for a shiny new Interstate battery, playing phone tag with my dad along the way.
So this is a shout-out to my mom, dad, pappaw, and mammaw** for helping me get to work on Monday!

I like formulas. Daily, I manipulate and interpret data to determine the effectiveness of the university. It’s consistent. The sum divided by the count equals the average. Multiply a number by .01 to find the percentage. Formulas never change; they give me what I want.
But there is no formula for life, at least, I haven’t found one. For me, life is a step-by-step experiment. Sometimes, All the time, I would like some wisdom in this trial and error attempt. Where can I find wisdom?
