Today we celebrate:

National Strawberry Sundae Day – It's summer so it’s hot which makes it a perfect day for a strawberry sundae. Who am I kidding?  It's always a perfect day for a strawberry sundae.

National Macaroni Day – Macaroni's are a popular pasta in America, but not in my family. My kids don't care but my husband prefers more interestingly shaped pasta. But he'll have to suffer today because it's macaroni for dinner. Here's a recipe you might like to try.

National Chocolate Day – There is much disagreement about when this day falls in the year. I think that is mostly because everyone loves chocolate and they want it many times a year, not just once.  Who can blame them?  I want to eat chocolate every day myself.

Father-Daughter Take A Walk Together Day – This is a special day for fathers and daughters to spend some time enjoying each other's company and the beautiful summer weather. It doesn't matter how old the fathers and daughters are, enjoy your day.

Global Forgiveness Day – Begun in 1994, this is a day to forgive and to be forgiven. It was originally named National Forgiveness Day but it has been renamed in order to spread the message around the world. Hanging on to anger and hurt only adds to the stress and health problems we already have in this world. Let it go and forgive and see how much better you feel.

Tell The Truth Day – This is a day that is celebrated by challenging all Americans to go a full and complete day without either telling a lie or saying something that might be misleading or dishonest.  This might be harder than you think and is NOT giving you permission to be hurtful to your family and friends.  It’s a challenge but I have faith in you.

To celebrate today, encourage the father in the family (possibly you, if you are male) to take a walk with the daughter in the family (also possibly you, if you are female and your father is alive).  Then tell the truth all day long and forgive anyone that you are angry or upset with.  That can be a hard thing to do so reward yourself with macaroni for dinner and a chocolate drizzled strawberry sundae for dessert.
