One of my favorite memories was when my daughter Marni was about 7 years old. She was in the family room alone with the TV. Every once in a while, I would hear a little scream. It didn’t seem serious, but she kept doing it. I finally went into the room and asked her what was going on. She was holding a small bottle and a lid and said, “I’m trying to catch my scream in the jar, but I can’t get the lid on fast enough!”

We were recently driving through Denver during a very heavy rain and thunderstorm. My 13-year-old granddaughter, Claire, was listening to music on her earbuds, and took them out to declare, “Isn’t that weird how the rain suddenly stops while it thunders?” Her mom chuckled and replied, “We just drove under a bridge.”
