If you are looking at this on Saturday, you will need to move down the page until you get to August 3rd. I had to put up Sunday's post a little early this weekend so that is what you see before you now.  It's important to celebrate things on the right day so don't be confused.

Today (Sunday) we celebrate:

Coast Guard Day – This is a day to commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard on this day in 1790 by the Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Back then it was called the Revenue Marine. 

Single Working Women's Day –
This is a day to honor the single working women of the world. They have to find the time to do everything themselves. Name a job around the house and the single working woman has to do it on top of working for a living so they have money to do all the things that have to be done.

International Forgiveness Day – Created by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance, an organization dedicated to spreading the “healing spirit of Forgiveness worldwide”, seventeen years ago, this is a day to forgive everyone you might be upset with in any way. It is a great way to reduce your stress and depression and make you a much happier person. 

National Doll Day – Celebrated on the first Sunday in August, this is a day to play with your dolls. Have a tea party with them and whomever else you would like to invite. Or let them help you throw a doll party. Have all of your friends come and bring their dolls.

Sister's Day – This is a day to show your sister how much you love and appreciate her. This is more for non-adolescent siblings since if adolescent happen to have a sister, they are more likely to want to pull her hair and kick her in the face than they are to appreciate her. The older you get, the more family means to you. My sister and I started being friends when we were teenagers and that love has only deepened with age.

Purple Heart Appreciation Day – This is a day to celebrate the 231st Anniversary of the Badge of Military Merit which inspired the creation of the Purple Heart we use today.

To celebrate today, call up your sister and tell her how much you love her and miss her and tell her you forgive her for everything mean she used to do to you when you were younger. If she's a single working woman, tell her how much you respect her for doing such a good job with all of that work. Then invite her and all the other single working women you know to a doll party. Recruit some of the dolls to be the Coast Guard. The party can have a beach theme and the Coast Guard can patrol the waters keeping the party goers safe from any danger. See if any in your group know someone who earned a Purple Heart and if you can, go to their house to thank them for their service.
