Finer Things Friday: Happy Day

I’m not exactly sure what the appeal of that particular spot on the calendar was, other than

1)  He could reach that height on the refrigerator, and

2)  We had no other plans that day.

Henceforth, the 28th of April, 2011 shall forever be known in our household as Happy Day. (or Haqqy Day if you are five years old and still learning how to form letters.)

“What’s Happy Day, Buddy?”

“It’s a day where everyone is happy.  No fighting.  No yelling.  No work.”

“Sounds good to me!  What are we celebrating?”

“Jesus died for us and rose again, so we should all be happy.”

I like the way that kid thinks.  Now go clear space on your calendar (tomorrow, perhaps?  Every Day, maybe?) and have a Happy Day.  It’s a Finer Thing!

What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up!
