Today, the NC Zoo welcomed a new baby giraffe. Mother Jamili is reportedly doing well. She’s also taken well to motherhood, so much so that zoo officials have yet to identify the baby’s sex. Apparently, there’s no one to yell, “IT’S A BOY!” or “IT’S A GIRL!” in giraffe birthing rooms. Then again, it doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or girl, as long as it’s healthy. At least, that what I understand giraffe father, Jack, kept noting in the months leading up to the birth. I secretly suspect he’s been hoping for a boy.

Another big story in the news this week was the verification of the “God Particle,” also known as Higgs boson. What captured my attention was how something so small could have such a huge impact. Next time you question your ability to have a positive impact on the world around you, simply think about the fraction of an atom that has the power to create universes—the smallest of us has the power to make anything happen.

In my little universe, I just had the pleasure of getting re-acquainted with two nephews and a niece who live about 400 miles away. Talk about something small having great power. Each one of them—a young child and two toddlers—wrapped themselves around my heart and lifted my spirit to new heights. They are all super sweet and amazingly brilliant. I cannot wait to see them again. Two new priorities: more video chatting between visits and more visits!
