Today we celebrate:

World Sauntering Day – This is a day that reminds us to slow down and enjoy every moment of our lives. That is hard for me to remember to do during the daily rush to do this and go there. We only get one pass through this life and it goes by fast enough as it is. Let's take this day to appreciate everything and everyone around us. Take a moment and enjoy the sunrise or sunset, snuggle with your baby, notice the breeze and hear the animals scurrying among the trees. You won't regret having done this today, and maybe you'll enjoy it so much you will want to do it every day. That wouldn't be such a bad thing.

Garfield the Cat Day – Garfield is an animated, overweight and very lazy cat. He was created by Jim Davis and he loves coffee, lasagna, sleeping, and causing trouble. He was born on this day in 1978 and has appeared in newspaper comic strips, television specials, movies and even a commercial since then.

Juneteenth – Begun in 1865, this day celebrate the emancipation of African American's. This is a day for being sensitive to, and learning from, the experiences of others in order to make lasting changes in our society today.

World Sickle Cell Day – Sickle Cell disease is the most common genetic disease in the world. This day was sponsored by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization for the purpose of raising awareness of the disease.

To celebrate today, read Garfield's comic in the newspaper, wish your neighbors a Happy Juneteenth and then tell them about Sickle Cell Disease so they can be more aware of it. Spend the rest of the day moving slowly, noticing and appreciating the world around you.
