That’s what my 2013 Sandra Boynton “Mom’s Family Calendar” tells me and we’re going to be awesome today, despite the torrential downpour outside.
Awesomeness Day (the International version) is March 10. There was one on April 3 in 2011 but there is no mention of it anywhere else on the internet but we’re not going to let that bother us. My calendar says it’s today.
So, what does it mean to be awesome? What does awesome mean? According to Merriam-Webster it’s “expressive of awe”, “inspiring awe”. Awe means “profound and reverent dread of the supernatural” and “respectful fear inspired by authority”. Hmm
Roget’s gives some awesome synonyms: “impressive, awe-inspiring”. It also says the slang synonyms are “excellent and splendid”. Much more to my liking.
So today I will be awesome to my children, inspiring “awe” to my excellentness (tee-hee). We will be excellent and splendid to each other and in everything we do today. BE THE BEST!
So take the day by the horns, plump your peacock feathers and strut your stuff today. Be awesome/excellent/splendid! Be glad today is so awesome: you’re alive, the United States is still a free nation (I checked the news today and so far so good), you’ve got God-given talents and skills to be good stewards of, and you’re just awesome to me.
So how are you going to celebrate?
Thanks for your post about Awesomeness Day! I too have the same calendar! I just Googled Awesomeness Day for more info and everything I can find says March 10th too! Oh well, we are celebrating anyway. I took my kids to Mcdonald’s, the library, and the park. We live in northern Utah and it is AWESOME weather today, the first real day of spring we have seen. Just puts a smile on your face! We are also about to walk a goody bag down to grandma and grandpa just down the road, to let them know how awesome they are! Then we will have an AWESOME dinner when the hubby gets home, chili dogs which are one of his favorites and then a favorite treat for dessert. He is an AWESOME father and husband and deserves to know how AWESOME he is too! Thanks for celebrating and sharing! 🙂
