National Tell a Story Day!

April 27 is National Tell a Story Day!

This is a terrific day for a writer! Short story. Long story. Fact. Fiction. Tall tale. Folklore. Everyone should share a story today!

So for two days I have been trying to decide what story I want to tell today.

  • How my grandparents met.
  • The birth of my daughter. (Yesterday was her birthday.)
  • My cross country bike trip.
  • Shiloh on the roof.

Then as usually happens, the story came to me over my morning coffee. It’s a story in this morning’s New York Times. It’s a story that made me smile. It’s a story that gave me hope. It’s a story that I want to share with you. Enjoy. Defending His Daffodils.
