Albert Einstein said, “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. ” (From Brainy Quote)
I thought about today’s word as I took my lunch walk yesterday and thought how can I even begin to describe the word valuable?
My list of what is valuable is so long. I will try though to describe a few of the many things that are valuable to me.

So here is my picture of the day – my parents on their wedding day. They are as young as they looked.
My father is in his army uniform, with the Army Corps of Engineers pin on his collar. He was in the reserves and on active duty, although he did not go to Korea. Many others in his generation were not so fortunate. My generation had the Vietnam war, and the Air Force is getting ready to post my cousin’s oldest son overseas (Afghanistan is the highest probability).
Albert was right – not everything that counts can be counted, from our family to our freedom to the things that give us pleasure. They are all valuable.
Word for tomorrow – STEM. If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.
