Today we celebrate:

Sally Ride Day – On this day in 1951, Sally Ride was born. Sally, of course, became an astronaut when women just didn't do that, and in 1983, at 32 years old, became the first American woman to enter space and orbit the earth. She had another space flight in 1984 and between the two flights, spent more than 343 hours in space. She was the only person to serve on the investigation board for both the Challenger and the Columbia disasters and she formed her own company, Sally Ride Science that creates entertaining science programs for students, with an emphasis on girls. She died of pancreatic cancer in 2012

National Blueberry Cheesecake Day – Any kind of cheesecake is delicious but if you're a fan of blueberries, which I am, then delicious becomes heavenly.

Trinity Sunday – This day is celebrated on the Sunday after Pentecost for Christians and is about celebrating the Holy Trinity, which is the belief, that I confess I don't completely understand even though I am Christian, that God and his son Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all God and therefore all equal and cannot be divided.

To celebrate today, head to your church for Trinity Sunday services, then stop at the library on the way home to pick up a book for your kids that is all about Sally Ride which they can read while they are eating a delicious dessert of blueberry cheesecake.
