March 9 - A Very BIG Day What would be lost if it did not exist? Why is it BIG?
What makes it a BIG day?
First, every day is.
Imagine if it did not exist? Where would we be today if there were no day today?
Over eight billion people are experiencing this day today. What if we did not have a designation for it?
That would be like 8,000,000,000 days disappearing x 24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds.

Now, multiply one day by every year of the history of humanity or, even, the world itself?
So many days that we call "March 9!"
Some events were wonderful. Some births were notable. Some things were not so good.
For some events, the jury is out. We cannot judge.
A reminder popped up on my screen of one of the reasons I am grateful for modern medicine and the people who deliver it to us ... sometimes at great risk and sacrifice ... always with great commitment.
So here I am, ready to embark on a long day of work with lots of energy, enthusiasm, and spizzerinctum!
It is the eight year anniversary of an ambulance ride which changed the trajectory of my life --- many ways, for the better.
God bless the doctors, nurses, clerks, care providers, dieticians, cleaning staff, transporters, phlebotomists, ALL who make and keep us healthier.
We've come a long way, Baby!
Don't give up!
It is a BIG Day
B for BIRTH
New ideas, people, movements, and projects are birthed daily.
I for INNOVATION
Every day is an opportunity for creativity.
G for GROWTH
We grow daily. We cannot skip a day.
That is my personal reflection.
Several years ago, I reflected on that event:
Apparently, a few years ago, on this day, I did some Bible teaching.
And then, there is history!
I even had the honor of being quoted in a book by one of my heroes.
What if this day
had never been?
