"I wish I were a glow worm,
a glow worm's never glum.
'Cuz how can you be grumpy,
when the sun shines out your bum?"

~Author unknown

It always amazes me that bad days are allowed to fall on sunny days. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but it felt like the world melting emotionally around me. So it seems fitting that the bad day was followed by a rainy day.

There's been lots of moments where light glowed through the rain. Seeing the freshmen run around campus following selection of housing arrangements for next year (and me almost getting run over by one of them dressed as a moose that resulted in me laughing hysterically). Watching our lab undergrads finish their senior theses and celebrating this milestone.

And then there's the turkey.

The final glow came tonight while putting down the Beats, turning on a Turtle light I acquired years ago that they've claimed as their nightlight. A glow that cuts through the darkness of this rainy night.

We live in a strange, crazy world. And yet, it's that craziness and uniqueness that glows like a beacon during those dark moments. Following the day I had yesterday, I'm grateful for that reminder.


  1. I'm so glad today was a better day! What is up with that turkey? That's CRAZY! It must be so fun to work in an environment where there could be people dressed like moose running around. Middle school is kind of like that, too. :) I'm glad today glowed in its own right, but especially in comparison to the darkness of yesterday. (And I love that turtle nightlight...)

  2. Haha, AJ has the same turtle lamp as her nightlight. Or very similar. I'm glad you found things to smile about despite your rough day.

  3. That turkey would make anyone's day....So happy you had a better day and found your smile. You happened to bring one to me as well.
