Appreciation Post #1

Updated: May 28, 2021

This morning is beautiful. The wind is gently rustling the multitude of flowering trees, the grass is green, and the sun out but not too intense. I normally move about my morning quickly and purposefully as I routinely walk our family’s dog, drop the kids off at daycare, and grab breakfast, all before heading to my office.

As I was walking towards my office this morning, I noticed painters working on one of the buildings on campus. As I got closer, I saw a contraption under the ladder, a safety wedge to keep the ladder from slipping. I paused to take in the nostalgia and became emotional. You are likely wondering: why did Jonathan become emotional over construction equipment?
