The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one August 26-28, 2011.

Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others.
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. We all cheer, and everyone feels great. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post, email me, or catch me on any social network and share your thought.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

Well now, I can’t brag about my techical prowess here since I just posted an long comment about my sister here and I don’t think it ‘took’ -Here is the short version…
My sister has ‘inherited’ two small children – with the energy of someone 1/3 her age she devotes more energy, love, caring, practical concern, and wisdom to these two as they to 1st and 3rd grade – she advocates for their well-being, deals with all their issues which are complicated due to their early childhood upbringing, defends their rights, is patient, and seems to possess endless resources for making their lives joyous and memorable in the best sense. I can’t say enough.
She is a great blessing to these two children, and an inspiration for all who come into contact with her.

Blessing upon her, Wayne! Stars in her crown, my mom would say.
