Today we celebrate:

Assistance Dog Day - Celebrated on the Monday of Assistance Dog Week, this is a day to honor the dogs who assist us on a daily basis.  Not everyone needs one, but if you do, you don’t need me to tell you how important they are to your ability to get through the day.  Dogs are incredibly smart and can be trained to do amazing things to help people who are blind, deaf, suffer from maladies like PTSD and so much more.

National Watermelon Day – Today is a day to celebrate the juicy, comes in its own packaging, flavorful, watermelon.  My kids love watermelon but I never think of buying it when I’m at the store.  I’ll have to add it to my shopping list for today.

Grab Some Nuts Day – Nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fat. If you need a little protein burst to last until your next meal, a handful of nuts (assuming you are not allergic) is a great option. Or add some nuts to a salad to round out a vegetarian meal.

Esther Day - Esther Grace Earl was born on this day in 1994.  When she was 12, she was diagnosed with metastasized papillary thyroid cancer.  Through 4 years of treatments, she did whatever she could to be a typical teen and to live life to the fullest.  This is a day for you to do the same.  Esther, when told that her friends and family wanted to make a day to honor her, said that she wanted it to be a day to celebrate love for family and friends.  So today, remember to tell the important people in your life that you love them.

To celebrate everything in one day, grab some nuts and some watermelon to share with the friends, family and the Assistance dog that you love.
